On A HAIR Mission

Happy Sunday Divamoms & Divas,

I won't apologize for not posting. I've been relaxing, enjoying KT, working, and reading a great deal. I believe your visit here is so much better when I give you quality rather than quantity. Plus I want to share some personal things that I've been pondering and praying about. Or should I say some lessons I've learned and am learning as I continue to travel this road called life dealing with the good & bad.  I'm looking forward to the Thanksgiving break from work and seeing my family. What are your plans?

I wanted to share with you in case you don't follow me on Twitter that I recently made the decision to grow out my brush cut. I know how much many of you love it on me.  I do too. Truth is I've been rocking this cut for almost 3 years and I in need of a change. I'm actually prepping myself to move towards consuming only chicken, fish and turkey. That's another blog post and I hope my best Q isn't reading this :).

So instead of posting here on my blog, I've been educating myself about natural hair. SERIOUSLY! I have spent hours on YouTube and reading natural hair blogs. I even joined a forum.  I've been natural for many years on and off. I've worn my hair bald, brush cut, fro, long in a puff because I didn't know how to care for long natural tresses, braided and two strand twisted.

Yesterday I was looking through old photos for motivation to take this journey. I pulled out photos where I liked the way I looked with mid length/longer natural hair. Others not so much. This is where the doubt comes in that I can let it go and grow. I hate the in-between stage. I don't like the pull back look with a hand-band on me and I'm too old for two strand twists on a fro (not sure how to explain this).

My mom is natural and my best returned to the community as well as fellow blogger Roodlyn at www.supermomplace.com. The support is there. I'm working on learning my hair and becoming a better divamom on the inside as the outside changes. I'm not sure how much I'll share on my blog. I don't want to talk products and try and re-teach what's already out there. Maybe the pictures of the journey? Let me know your thoughts.

Hope each of you are well. I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE 171 FOLLOWERS. Thank you oh so much!

Hey I say go for it as well. It will be a journey and it will be some tough times but in all you will learn your hair and what it needs and what works for you. I encourage you to continue being connected with youtube, natural bloggers and forums. It will be an amazing resource for you. Good Luck!

1st let me say that you are beautiful! There aren't many women that can "rock" the brush cut or bald and still look feminine. I know that otha sistas look at me and think that what I am about to say is only because I have long hair but that is not true. NATURAL HAIR IS BETTER!! I have had my hair short, medium and long. I have even added a few pieces, fake bangs, color, perms and in the end I always go back to natural. It is what suites everyone best. I know it will be tough especially on those days when your hair just won't cooperate but it will be worth it! I love YouTube. I recently viewed some tutorials on the hair rod process. I think I may give it a whirl! Kiah

btw - Thank God for June Ambrose making the head wrap, turban, scarf such a fashion statement these days. On those "non cooperating" days that I mentioned before you can always go for that look! ;-) Kiah

Congrats on your decision and good luck on your journey. I wear my hair relaxed, but my friends who wear their hair naturally LOVE it.
