First post of 2012! This post has been in my mind for a few days and I’m finally putting it on paper… well… you know what I mean.
So you know I did my big chop on 7.22.11. A major inspiration for my big chop was Forever Curly Catrina (You need to see her Fotki!). When I saw her hair, I thought to myself that we had similar hair textures. I fell in love with her mini twists and decided that I was ready for the big chop and I would mini twist my hair. FAIL! FAIL! FAIL!
In 2011, I learned that my hair texture is like none other. Everyone has a unique hair texture that responds differently to different things.
I also learned that whatever style you see someone else rocking, it will never look exactly the same on you. It’s best to just start off with a variation of it to save yourself the disappointment.
About two posts ago, I showed you my mini twists, which I absolutely love. A few days later I stumbled upon this pic of Forever Curly Catrina and realized that I randomly achieved the style that I was dying for when I first cut my hair. Small two strand twists that curl at the ends. SUCCESS!
I redid my mini twists tonight. This time, I timed it and it took me about 2.5 hrs to twist my whole head. Never again… for real this time!
Love you for reading.
