I have not exposed my natural hair online or on my instagram in such a looooong time. For months now, I have been wearing a wig and enjoying the simplicity of having short (twa) hair. However, it has come to the point where I need to hold myself accountable as I gird myself up for my growing out process.
When I had my hair last cut several months ago, I had it cut looooow (I am not brave enough to post those pictures YET but I promise I will). At the same time, I wanted to be able to easily blend my hairline with my curly wig. Therefore, I had all my hair cut to a low buzz except the front portion of my hair, which is now a good 2-3 inches longer than the rest of my hair as shown below:
I am not sure if I will cut the longer section down even with the rest of the hair anytime soon (or ever) because I do plan on wigging it as my mode of protective styling over the next 3 months to get me through the winter.
What is amazing about having really short natural hair is that I can easily spot the many different textures I have on my hair. My hair has really loose S curls along the middle strip of my head (going from front to back) while my sides have a tighter, more spirally pattern. I even have lots of straight strands throughout my head.
In the next post, I will show a close up of the many different textures visible in just the front portion of my head alone.
Do you have multiple hair textures along your head?
How does your texture vary in certain areas?
Does this pose a challenge when it comes to moisturizing and styling your hair?
