NEW HAIR. CHANGE.
“A woman who changes her hair, is about to change her life”- Coco Chanel
Finally, I am writing this blog post. I never thought I would at this stage, but it’s been 2 weeks, and it’s time. As you can see, OBVIOUSLY, lol, I have changed my hair. Not only CHANGED it, CUT it! All the way off, leaving a little bit on the crown. IT’s GONE! It’s ALL GONE!!
I have been silent about it on social media, because this was a HUGE step for me. Not only did I spend over a year, thinking of cutting my hair, but it’s always been an inside battle because my hair, means everything to me. My hair is my crown. In over 18 years, I had never really CUT my hair, only just trimmed the dead ends off. So this, was a BIG deal.
It started a long time ago. A little over a year, when I started toying with the idea of cutting my hair, but every single time I would talk myself out of it.
“How will I look once I cut it?”
“Will short hair suit me?” “Am I ready for this?”
The answer would always lead down one road: I AM NOT READY.
One day, 3 weeks ago, I woke up, stared at my ceiling, and said to myself “This hair has to go”. Bare in mind, the was nothing really WRONG with my hair. I wasn’t one of those people who wanted to do the “big chop” and grow my hair naturally, nah fam, I couldn’t care less about that. My hair was growing just fine, looking good and healthy under my weaves/wigs. I just wanted CHANGE. I’ve been changing so many aspects of my life over the last year and some months, that I felt like I wanted a dramatic change. Yes, i started eating right and losing weight and and… but I wanted a change that would officially rock me to my core, and change my life.
I wanted to do something the required me to be brave, something I was SCARED to do.
LETTING GO OF:
- toxic relationships
- believing societal norms that long luxurious hair is beautiful
- what people who generally expect of me
- “safe” and “comfort” zones
- Owning my Identity to be what I want it to be
- The New
I love it. So much so that I feel like a completely different person everytime I look in the mirror. It’s new, its different, but at my core, its still me.
I LOVE IT.
To new beginnings. <3
Live in Light and Love <3
