“If i could get over that HUMP (mmmmm)then maybe i will feel better,
maybe I won’t FALL,
if I could get over that HUMP (mmmmmmm)
then maybe I will”
Erykah Badu – The Hump
I am going through the second stage of my natural hair growth journey, and since I have been keeping it short, general maintenance and management has been nothing short of easy. However, that time has come when it must grow, leaving me in with a 70’s, Jackson 5 look. This weekend I was very close to buying some weave (hand over face) but with some encouraging words from my boyfriend I decided against my trip. I am 24 and this had been my third ‘big chop’ experience, but it’s my first to wear it out all natur-elle, and although I am loving it; occasionally I do miss swinging some hair around… But I know what relaxer does to my hair, and because of that I MUST keep the end in mind.
So since I know I have quite a few readers going through the natural hair journey for all sorts of reasons, I just wanted to post a word of encouragement to keep the end in mind, and just get over that hump.
This is my most recent hair inspiration
