A Curl Casualty
I rely on an army of duckbill clips and ouchless bands to help me section my hair off for styling purposes. Working with my hair in sections makes the entire process of styling – whether its twists, detangling, or wash’n’goes – go so much more smoothly. However, sometimes this smooth sailing encounters a snag, literally.
This was the first entire curl that I’ve ever had to cut from my head and it was really sad to have to do it. However, after 20 minutes of wrestling and pulling and unwinding, I just had to sacrifice this coil to the duckbill gods. Let’s just have a moment of e-silence here.
Now when one curl dies, another is born! I’ve been in Minnesota the past few days (my home state) where I’ve spent a good chunk of time with my sister Skya’s hair. She had braids that were uber ready to come out and using my new natural knowledge, I’ve been styling and helping her rock her natural. It’s been…real. Really really real. There’s been tears, smiles, ups and downs throughout the entire process. Keep your eyes peeled for a post wrapping up this experience.
