The summer is my favorite season to rock my wild and natural curls. I especially enjoy the unpredictability of my hair and how my curls respond to the heat, humidity, and hot radiant sun. The color becomes more vivid and my fro grows bigger and wilder as the day goes longer.
Back in the day when I was permed, the sizzling hot summer days constantly held me hostage to closed windows and air conditioning in my car, and major dilemmas of how to style my hair after a long ten-mile run.
Now, I’m free to be me! Hairs that are out-of-place are in place and exactly where they belong. Three years into my journey, I am having more fun than ever.
With September only one week away, it is time for me to transition to the new school year. The spare time that I indulged in July and August will soon quickly disappear. The slots will be filled with strict early morning routines, football practice, home work, dinner, and barely enough time to get to CrossFit. Oh, and I left out my hair in the mix. Length retention means more time required to co-wash, condition, moisturize, twist, and style. Whew!
So what’s a curly girl to do? Visit her favorite stylist to find the perfect protective style. I am so excited! I decided to go with temporary loc extensions, styled by the one and only Vicky at KinHairitage. After staring in envy at several photos posted by KH, I knew exactly what I wanted.
My natural hair is safely tucked away and my new regime is reduced to moisturizing my roots and grabbing a satin bonnet at night. And the best part… after a long run or CrossFit, no hair maintenance is required! Heeeey! I can sleep a few minutes later now too. Check out my new style.
