AAAAAAAND…I CUT MY HAIR AGAIN!

Yes yet another time but this time it wasn’t just impromptu like the past hence why I decided to share my story and oh, I used a clipper this time too.

After the last time I cut my hair at the end of September 2018, I was so excited to start growing out my hair again. I’d spend days day dreaming of long kinky hair and how I’d style it in so many different ways. Let’s not even get into details of how I longed for braids even though they took so long and I literally get bored of them after 7days. I actually did get to the point of doing braids, the journey there was nothing spectacular because I’m the laziest natural ever. I believe strongly in ‘it’s just hair and hair always grows, always’. So I hardly spent any money on products or spent anytime pampering it and yes it grew.

Disaster happened when I tried to dye my hair platinum blonde at home, one night with my mum. It turned out not platinum blonde but yellowish and boy I couldn’t stand my look. I kept it away under a wig cap and wig till it was long enough for my first set of braids and you bet I dyed it black for them braids. It was the most beautiful braids ever after spending near 10hours at the salon but the downside, MY HAIR WAS DAMAGED thanks to the bad hair dye that was used at the salon. My hair went from coily to near straight and I totally hated it. I kept pushing and enjoying the growth while I hoped that the texture changes one day but

alas, another disaster struck

I found lice in my hairrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr *insert scream here*. Yes you read right, I felt an insect crawling in my hair, I’d been feeling it for about two days straight so that night I tried to pick out the insect and I succeeded. I would have normally just killed the insect and moved on right? But because my braids were so itchy, I kinda suspected it to be lice so I googled images of lice and behold, I was right. Out of fear, I rushed to my mum who owns a salon, she recommended that I get my hair relaxed. According to her, ‘the chemicals from the relaxer is capable of killing them and also the combing process will take them out as your scalp will be more exposed’. I took to her advice, relaxed my hair and found this hairstyle that I fell in love with.

I kept at this hairstyle for a whole month as it’s not advisable to get braids immediately after a perm. When the time for braids came, a really cool hair styling collaboration also came hence I couldn’t get the long awaited braids but hey, a bag was secured so I wasn’t mad. After I got the collaboration out the way, I went off to get yet another set of braids and this time in a color mix I haven’t ever tried before. Did I love it? YES. Did I also get bored of it after 7days? HELL YEAH.

After about an extra three days of trying to convince myself that the braids looked nice, I went over to my friends house for a little girls night before her trip, amidst gisting about life and how we wish people weren’t always so self righteous and talked more about sex so the younger generation doesn’t make same mistakes over and over, I took out them braids. The following morning, we dropped my friend off at the airport, I went home and walked right into a barbers shop, the same exact one my baby brother goes to and had same person that cuts his hair, cut off all my hair.

Oh the fresh breeze I felt as o walked out the barbers shop back home, the subtle laughs I let out as people looked at me in surprise, the so many ‘what happened?’ question I had to answer etc. The biggest problem however was, I don’t like any of my wigs anymore and I wasn’t 100% confident I can go out with my hair so low as in previous times, I hardly ever did. But look at me now, with a whole blogpost showing my weirdly shaped head plus it’s nearly a week now and I haven’t even felt like wearing a wig.

The secret to this new confidence is MINDSET.

I spent an entire night looking myself straight in the eyes in the mirror, smiling sheepishly and telling myself how beautiful I look and that if I feel this beautiful then everyone else will get with the program whether they like it or not. If there is one thing I want you to take out from this long story I’ve written is that you are exactly what you tell your mind you are, so endeavor to speak positively to yourself and your mind all day everyday.


Also,

Love always,

Your Sis.

  2. You look beautiful, Ifeoma. You really are.
    I also cut my hair sometime last year and I felt exhilarated. I have worn wigs a maximum of 5 times since then because honestly, I don’t care much for hair. All the years I had hair was because everyone else thought I should, so I did.
    I really enjoyed your story and I am happy you are doing you!
