A Trip Down Memory Lane

I remember when I first started this blog. It was when Kim Coles’ Grow Out Challenge ended. I was so excited to be documenting my hair journey and although that challenge ended, I wanted to keep going.

I met so many great people on that site. I found myself always drawn to people who I thought had hair textures similar to mine. I would try to mimic their hairstyles. Back then I had the length to do that. I thought that whatever products they used would automatically work for me because our hair textures were similar. That was a huge misconception.

Absolutely fell in love with Shelli’s hair. I thought her hair texture was very similar to mine, until my hair started to grow out more. I realized my hair was much curlier. She had THE BEST and most creative styles. Her style gallery was ridiculous.

I remember when I saw Michelle’s hair and she was looking for a hair twin. I don’t even remember why. LOL. I commented saying that I think we could be hair twins… until I realized my hair was much curlier than hers too. There went that idea. LOL.

Although Miss Mickey doesn’t blog anymore, she had hair to die for. Her hair was sooooo long. You know I’m obsessed with long hair. Granted, she always wore it in a bun, but she had the biggest, fullest bun. We were both trying to ween ourselves off of gel. LOL.

Another blogger with great hairstyles is Tia Shauntee. Most of her styles are protective styles and are quick and easy to do. When I have more length, I’ll try more styles.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m in a hair slump. I need inspiration. Help!

XOXO,
Rece

  1. Ok first, the title of this song now has me thinking of that Minnie Ripperton song (“…back down memory lane!”) lol. I know what you mean. I have been doing basic variations of a curly wash-n-go for the last few weeks . . . experimenting with different products and hair accessories, but basically ending up with the same basic style. So, I’m going to do what I always do when I get in a hair rut – visit the salon! I will get my hair twisted up for a good week or so . . . gives me a few days of not having to worry about my hair, but also the opportunity to miss my curly fro . . . by the time my hair untwists itself, I usually have a boatload of ideas about how to revamp my style. Good luck to you!!!

  3. You changed your site’s theme too?!?! Oh wait, did I know that already? LOL!!!

    Thanks for the kind words Rece! Don’t forget, my “old” … or should I say “young” hair looked like yours!!! Old age has just changed it.

    And here’s my post on Protective Styling being anything but boring that seems to have been right on time and I had written it before seeing your post!! How crazy is that?!?!

    • Yeah! I just read your post. It was definitely right on time. I love the rope bun. I always feel like I’m postponing styles for when my hair is long. LOL. Your “young” hair did look a lot like mine. I can’t believe it changed so much. Then again, they say our hair changes every 7 years. I think my “young” hair was more like your henna’d hair now. Craziness. Now I’m curious to see what my hair will look like a few years from now.

      I just changed the look of my blog yesterday. You didn’t miss anything. LOL.
