some friday fun

Avatar • Jan 23, 2009

so i was thinking the other day that i often derive joy from my napps… so i (very randomly) compiled a list of top‑7 feelings of natural hair.

1. new growth at the base of a twist or braid
2. four words: my hairline — it’s back
3. when the bf plays in my hair, i don’t have to worry about a track or extension falling out
4. no more burn marks from hot comb accidents
5. when i take my big hair out in public, ppl admire
6. when my hair is moisturized it reveals it’s true texture — tiny springing coils i never thought i had (they were there all along, through all the flat ironing, all the weaving, screaming “please! give me a chance!”)
7. when i walk on the street, i don’t look like everybody else

you might not agree with the ranking, and you might have your own ‘best feelings’ to add. so please…

Number one on my list is the fact that I actually just like my hair AND it grows. My hair did not even get to the bottom of my neck when I was a kid. I love waking up in the morning, unbraiding my hair and staring in the mirror. (Yes every single day — I’m not bored yet)

Great list. I’ve been thinking about #3. It was pretty freeing not to worry about my hair being messed up when Mr. Lucky ran his fingers through it. I love that he loves my natural hair as much as I do. 

And #6. This might be #1 for me. As my hair grows, I’m finding it settle into a texture that I’ve come to really love. I didn’t know my hair was so coily. I love it!

8) The rain is not longer an enemy.
9) It’s actually fun to style and not a chore.

I know exactly how you feel! ESPECIALLY about #6 since I only just recently have gotten to the point where my hair is almost properly moisturized. I’ve gotten these beautiful tiny curls that I never knew I had, little breakage, and the top of my head finally doesn’t feel like a brillo bad. I’d say the feeling of moisture and new growth are my top two.

I have a lot of the same feelings as SLY. My favorites being that I don’t have to worry about snow, rain or trying not to get my hair wet at the pool ;). Love being able to wash n’ go and have fun trying new products and styles.
