This winter, I abruptly cut my hair. Twice. Over my bathroom sink. Since the cut, I’m not sure what or why, but I haven’t worn it out much. I’m sure a lot of it has to do with winter’s shift and life’s demands, and part of it has to do with getting more comfortable with shorter hair.
After a few weeks of not doing much to it, I canceled all plans and had myself a good wash day, here’s how it went…
If you’re unfamiliar with wash days, it’s a day us natural girls like to carve out for washing, conditioning, and styling our hair. In my personal experience, I could get a good wash and style done at night, but it’s more pleasant putting a day aside.
Here’s how my first wash day of spring went :
10:00 am – shower and condition
10:30 am – finger detangle and let air dry.
11:00 am – Part into sections and oil scalp.
The funny part; usually after parting, I don’t touch it for a few hours. I give myself a break to enjoy the day. Crazy hair and all.
9:00 pm – moisturize lightly again
9:15 pm – two-strand twist it while watching terrible tv.
While I’m not obsessed with the way it turned out, it felt good to finally have my shorter hair blowing in spring’s wind. How about you, do you change your hair up for spring or summer?
