Adventures Of Natural Hair: Time For A Change
Tuesday afternoon I went to the salon with thoughts of having a protective style installed. However, after my hair was washed and blow dried, I looked at my reflection. It was as if I was looking at a stranger. My hair was no longer an accurate reflection of me. (I mentioned my hair struggles in my Adventures of Natural Hair post.) I tried to stick it out, but I just couldn't hold on to having "long hair." I hid behind my hair. It was a safety net.
My current mindset is to have healthy hair that fits my lifestyle. I believe one decision to "go for it" can usher in a new season of confidence. I am assured that opportunities will follow.
So with that said, I literally stopped the stylist. I asked her to just cut my hair. To say she was shocked is an understatement. She made me assure her that this was what I wanted, because there is no going back once the first cut is made. I knew this was the right decision for me. With the first snip I exhaled and watched the hair fall.
I am not sure if I have ever felt this free and confident. It was time for a change and sometimes a simple hair cut can ignite a fire within.
