New Natural Haircut & Giveaway Winner

Sooooo if you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that I cut my hair…. again. I felt it was just time for another change. I hate having the same hairstyle/cut for a long period of time. It just erks me! The last time you saw me on the blog, you may have noticed that my hair had grown out alot from when I big chopped. I wore 

it like that for quite some time. Honestly, retwisting all that hair every night was not the business! I dreaded it. I wore buns a lot because it was an easy hairstyle to have when I didn’t retwist the night before. I don’t know why people think natural girls have it so easy. Somebody lied to them!

After wearing the “big hair” for a while, I decided to shave off my sides & back. I had to. I just couldn’t take it anymore. So happy I did that. I loved rocking that look! And to top it off, I only had to retwist the top which consisted of about 7-9 twists. I cut my time down to about 10-15 minutes per night, as opposed to the 30-40 minutes it normally took me to retwist.

I donned the shaved sides look for around 9 months….it really didn’t seem that long though. As you can tell, I got tired of that & needed something new. That’s when I started letting the sides & back grow back in so that I could get this tapered style. I absolutely HATED the “grow back” process. I tried to make my hair look as good as I could with the sides growing back in. If I was a weave girl, I would have been okay. That would have made my life alot easier. I did wear crochet braids a couple of times during the process, which helped, but I didn’t keep them too long.

On Sunday, I’d had enough!! I got up, went into my bathroom & just started cutting away. I mean, what’s the worst thing that could happen? It wouldn’t turn out right, and I’d have to big chop again? I didn’t mind. I was definitely willing to take the risk. Great choice! I love the way it turned out. One day I’ll get brave enough to add some color.

The winner of the Beyond The Lights giveaway is Cathy from Minister of Style. Congratulations, my friend! Hope you enjoy.

Talk to me guys!  I’ve missed you!
