Hair Boredom

Since I wrote about the "natural nazis" and women not accepting their natural hair.. I guess I should update you on my current hair. I'm bored with it. I'm this close to shaving my head. lol. My hair in its natural states barely touches my jawline but once straightened, it hits just below my shoulder blades. Shrinkage is a bitch. I attempted to DYE my hair blonde with a box dye-- didn't work at all. Just turned my roots some awful shade of brown. I then attempted to get hi lights with this kit. Nope. Only one strip of BROWN at the back of my head. So, I had to buckle down and... BLEACH my hair. I was scared at first so I only bleached a small section in the front. Lawd, my hair is full of about 5 different colors right now. But I kind of like it. :)
IDK.. gives my hair some interesting flair. I'm not finished yet. Somehow I stumbled upon THIS photo:
and now THIS is the look I kinda wanna go for. The Cruella De Ville look I guess. A skunk effect. But it shall be slightly different and Bee'd up. 
It's been 3 years since I cut off my hair. It's about damn time I added color to it. I grew so bored of henna and the red shades. I need something bold. Something to make me stand out again. 

Natural Hair Nazis

I woke up this morning planning on purchasing new products for my naturally curly hair. As always, before I decided to buy I READ allllll the comments/reviews women left about each product. That's when I noticed it---  some naturals do NOT love their natural texture! *Gasps* Could it be that these super naturals are actually trying to buy products that will somehow magically turn their hair to look like the little mixed chick with the perfect spirally ringlets on the advertisement? 

I literally died from laughter. These women are upset bc they expected their hair to look curly, not nappy. smh. You'd think that after doing the Big Chop & working with your hair for at least a year, you would realize that no product can turn those naps to curls. And that is perfectly fine. The same logic applies to women with wavy hair. That curly pudding will not turn those waves to spirals either. 

Sometimes natural women are too obsessed with "curl patterns" & defining them... If you dont have curls naturally, no moisturizer will help.Get a texturizer or relaxer or something. Obviously your natural hair isn't what you wanted. sheesh. That's why these heffas wet their hair everyday. Relentlessly trying to get that "wet n wavy" look. Then slather on gel or some $40 creme that they think will magically turn that fro into a head of bouncy curls. Seemingly blind to the fact that those products are supposed to elongate curls & eliminate frizz--- not create a curl pattern your ass doesn't have.
Let's be real.. you went natural because you thought that your hair would look a certain way. And now it doesn't so you're MAD... but pride won't let you relax it again.. so you must spend $100s of dollars on products that you assume will turn your hair curly--- and unfortunately that will NEVER happen.

Walk Away

Moving soon. Needing to get away. Need a change. I'm VERY excited about this change of scenery :)
So I'm guessing this flick is symbolic of me walking away from my past; from all the drama, the stress, the madness, the fuckery-- everything.

A couple of weeks ago I spent an hour at the beach one night just thinking. I walked barefoot through the sand, letting the water splash around my legs.. and I just thought. I cleansed my soul that night. I let everything out. I felt so rejuvenated afterwards but very much open & emotional.

Since then I've been  guarding my heart more. I've let go of so much.. still holding on to some. I just want to be happy again. If that takes continuing to walk further & further away, then so be it. I will continue to walk this long & treacherous path of life.. even if I have to walk alone. Bey said: "I'm known to walk alone but I'm alone for a reason." I feel as if my reason for walking alone is that I need to find myself. I need to figure out exactly who I am before I can attempt to link arms with another.

It's hard to walk away. And I walk away in 6inch platform pumps.
