|Snowpocalypse 2011 ...Seriously. That's what the media's calling it.|
Good Cold, Icy & Snowy day to you all!
At least it is down here. I know I mentioned posting on whatever I decided to do with my hair on last week. Well, this is what went down. I let it dry overnight and then flat-ironed it.
I was just itchin' to mix it up a bit and couldn't wait on getting my Sedu iron. Anyhoo. I only went thru each small section of hair once. Because I'm still a bit of a chicken about heat damage.
Now what I already knew but became more apparent is that I need to get a good trim. Looks like at least an inch. Bummer. The last time I had a professional trim was last February. Outside of that, I've been dusting here and there.
As you can see, I wasn't going for a really straight look. It started doing a little reverting back. Which was okay. I just wanted to see if I could flat-iron my own hair. And after I proved to myself that I could, I did this.......
I just love buns.
Last night, I oil-rinsed and co-washed my hair. In the midst of detangling, I made four sections into plaits, which I let mostly dry overnight. Right now, I'm sort of mini-twisting each section. The plan is to keep these twists in for a couple of weeks. We shall see how long I last. I tend to get impatient and/or bored.Then I plan on rocking a twist-out for as long as I can.
My tentative plans for 2011 & Beyond:
February - Get a professional trim. This is when I get my hair blown-out/flat-iron.
March - Get my hair braided. I want nice & sleek cornrows. I always think of Vivica Fox in "Kill Bill".

Around 5 or so years down the road, I want to give locs a go. I've been thinking about sisterloc's. Then once I'm over those, I'm gonna get it all cut off again. I'm thinking really low like a Cesar.

So that's my (tentative) hair plans. Do you have any? If so, what are they?
