Sick of Protective Styling

So, y'all know that I primarily wear my hair in twists or braids during the week, right? Although they are very convenient, I'm pretty much sick of them. I would like to wear my hair "loose" more often and not just on the weekends. I am afraid of  tangles and knots though. I haven't experienced them(excessively) as of yet, but I know it's a possibility.

Anyway,  I don't really like wearing my hair down often. Even when relaxed, I preferred ponytails and/or buns and  only wore my hair down on weekends. I think I will continue on with the trend mainly because my "down" styles take more time to do in the morning.

Here are a couple ways I have been wearing my hair. Very simple, just how I like it. I'm sticking with buns and ponytails for now

My ponytail is completely shrunken here. I kind of wanted it this way, so I just put my stretched hair in a pony, wrapped the front then hopped in the shower to let the steam make my hair shrink. 

This is my itty bitty bun. Because the middle of my hair either retains the least amount of hair or grows super slow, high ponytails or buns always look small to me. Not to mention, I have a bunch of conditioner in my hair(washing it tonight), so my hair is completely shrunken.
In this picture, my hair is actually in Dookie Braids, just pulled back. You can't really tell from the front, but the back looks a hot This was my breaking point which resulted in me wanted to wear my hair loose more often.
Not the same day, but this is kind of how the back looked.



  1. You're a cutie. Love the hair also. I hardly ever wear my hair down either. Someone asked today -- do you ever wear your hair down? My answer -- I attempt it but by the middle of the day, it's pinned up and put away. It's almost like I've forgotten how to wear it down.
