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.
