For most of my life wearing nothing on my face has been easy. I don’t mind it. In fact, I actually like it. Feeling fresh faced & clean is something I very much enjoy & its important to me that I am comfortable in my own skin..
Don’t get me wrong, I love makeup, I love ‘fakery’ or materialistic things, but I also like stripping it all back and just being me, the natural me.
So lets discuss my hair. Ive never been comfortable with it. I’ve pretty much always hated it since I hit my teens and became aware of looks and being beautiful, sigh. At school everyone wore extensions so I decided to as well. Clip ins were the thing back in 05′ LOL and I wore them all the way up until 2014. Outside of my home nobody really saw my real hair unless it was shoved up in a bun. It wasn’t thick enough, long enough, or pretty enough and I covered up my insecurities by hiding it. I didn’t feel beautiful without extensions in and that was that. Ive had clip ins, glue ins, and even a full head of weave and yes, they were all fun, they made me feel confident and I loved looking different practically every few months but I also wanted to stop hiding behind and I wanted to learn how to love another flaw.
Fast forward to July 2015 and I have been ‘hair natural’ for a month. I decided that Egypt was the perfect time to ditch the fake hair and nurse my natural hair back to health. Its not in the best condition at the moment but thats a working progress. My hair is pretty thin and pretty dead but at least its mine lol!!! I’ve been testing out lots of new hair products which is exciting and do you wanna know the best part? Being able to touch my scalp every single day and have Simon give me a head massage lol. That is honestly the best part haha! Am I sad, eek lol?
So this is the start of my natural hair journey. Im content with my face, I’m becoming very content with my body and now its time to become content with my hair.
Have any of you ditched your beauty fakery comforts? Can you give me any advice?
