As you have read in the title above, I am bored with my hair. Although I am a lazy natural and do not take care of my hair as often as I should, every so often I find myself getting bored with my hair. After months of doing twist outs, braid outs, bantu kots, head wraps and puffs, I have found that I have become bored with my hairstyle choices. Due to the fact that I have become increasingly busy, I no longer have the time to do my hair and thus find myself repeating hair styles over and over again. Now I want to try something different.
I want to take a risk with my hair instead of constantly worrying about length and growth. I was thinking of dying my hair a random color such as silver or purple. I know that these colors are not the typical light brown or burgundy that most naturals tend to stick to when it comes to dying hair, but I do not like to do what everyone else does so they would be perfect for me. A streak of purple or a streak of silver would be new for me but it would allow me to move out of my comfort zone and add some personality to my hair and my appearance. However, I am terrified of having to repair the damage done from bleaching and coloring my hair.
I also thought about giving my hair a break all together and doing marley twists again. I loved my twists when I got them done last summer and I would not mind having them again, except I would want my twists to be much larger (I love big chunky twists). This option would be a win-win for me because while I can enjoy trying new things to the marley hair, my own natural hair gets to be protected from the winter approaching. Lord knows I love my twists but I am also contemplating getting faux locs again. One of the main reasons I love chunky twists is because they share a similar look to locs, so why not just get faux locs and call it a day? (the take down process is also much much easier).
As indecisive as I am, it will take me a while to finally make up my mind, but as for you all, what protective styles or new things are you trying with your hair for the winter?
