I was a walking, "Big hair, Don't Care" this past weekend

After waiting longer than necessary, I finally decided to get rid of some of my old ends and give myself a much needed trim and shape. The hair was looking like a long, kinky-curly mullet and I don't know on what universe where that is considered cute. lol

I went and lightly blow-dried my hair, using a paddle brush and low heat. This was after cowashing with my Broaer Intensive Conditioner, and using PM, The Conditioner with Natural Oasis Oil overtop. My hair didn't take ANY time to dry and I was left with some big BIG, soft hair.

And I was back at waist-length again, after giving myself a trim in December. Although it was short-lived because I cut about 4 inches off. LOL! Nice to know that my hair IS growing!

For the holiday weekend, I decided to keep it big and I must say....I LOVED IT! And it didn't even matter that throughout the day yesterday, I felt my hair swelling more and more.

I've seen some beautiful naturals wearing their hair in light blow-out/twist outs and never thought it would look right on me, but I was pleasantly surprised! It just takes me back to when my mom would do this with my hair. I never really wore it out for the reasons mentioned above(i.e. expanding as the day goes on). And I WAS a kid, so I was a bit of a tomboy. But I can see this maybe being s different option, and it doesn't even involve JUST wearing it out. I can do messy buns and pull back with clips and pins. I can put flowers in my hair and maybe to flat twists(one day I'll try this). I mean, there are many ways to extend this style, just as there is with natural hair in general.

Who says natural hair isn't versatile? :P
