So, I’m in Walgreens yesterday picking up my antibiotics from my dentist appointment. (yep, inflammed gums) I know, gross. No cavities though! So, I’m walking to the front, and I hear..”Excuse me, your hair is so pretty, are you natural?” Normally I just get stares, but to be bluntly asked, well, I must be doing something right!” lol. My response is that I’m almost completely natural, and that I haven’t had a chemical relaxer in 18 months. She then proceeds to remove her scarf, and she says, “Me too, but I cut mine, and I hate I did.” I told her how I chose to just slowly trim mine away because usually that is what happens,women cut their hair short and then hide it! She said she will not be trimming anymore, but will just let the small amount of relaxed hair left slowly grow out. I guess you can say I inspired her? You really don’t have to do a big chop, not quite sure who made up that rule??? So, anyway, I’m suppose to flat iron my hair and trim more relaxer off, but I’m thinking about it…..
