I’m sitting here looking pretty ridiculous. It’s my hair. It kinda looks like it’s supposed to look like this on purpose, but I know that it’s not. It’s going to take some time to figure out how to work this new regimen. My smooth and straight took years to perfect and now I am starting from scratch.
Friday night I twisted it and rolled it. I used my standard jojoba oil and some creamy stuff from shea moisture. Don’t ask me what it was exactly. Saturday morning I took it down and immediately started looking for a hat. Unfortunately, I didn’t really have anything that would go with a hat, so I had to fix it so I could go out in public.
I took a pic of myself and gasped. I had ghostface! Last week I went to buy my regular makeup and somehow let the girl talk me into going a shade lighter. Now, I’ve been NC 45 for a decade, so I don’t know why I drank the kool-aid and went with NC 42. I suppose it looked fine all week at work, but under the bright flash it was awful. I grabbed that stuff and headed straight to Nordie’s to exchange.
I redid my hair Saturday night and felt that it looked a little better. Today it looks…eh…I’m not really feeling it but I’ve gotten several compliments
from people that don’t know any better.
I will probably do it again this evening. I suppose I have to keep trying different things until I find what works.
