I can’t believe Lushstrands is going natural! She’s like my only hope to attaining BSL aside Daboju(of Naija Hair can Grow). Btw Lushstrands is a Nigerian girl with Waist-length hair. Ever since she was featured on Bella Naija, i’ve aspired to take up a hair journey hopefully to BSL(Bra Strap Length). So last month i started with a proper hair regimen and all after a lot of research. Just this evening, she blogged about going natural. (http://lushstrands.blogspot.com). Imagine my surprise!! She’s one of the very few relaxed-hairs that inspire me. She’s practically my hair role model.
Daboju is the only one left. Every other hair blogger i know of is natural. 😦 😦 Honestly,i’m just so tempted to go natural buh i don’t think i’m ready for it. For 6years, i was natural (minus little touch-ups of relaxers during the hols). My high school didn’t allow females make their hair and i dreaded it. For like 2years i couldn’t just accept it. Eventually i had to endure till i graduated. My hair was so tough and personally i don’t think i looked good on low-cut. I remember buying a dozen of bandanas then because i didn’t like leaving my hair out. Immediately after graduation,i had my hair relaxed. Unfortunately, the relaxer burnt my scalp so bad that for two weeks,i couldn’t touch it. 😦
Fastforward to two years later,i’m tempted to repeat what i dreaded only that this time,i’ll have an ideal hair regimen and a healthy growth. I think if i eventually succumb to this temptation,it’s gonna be a major challenge. I don’t wanna get to BSL only to end up BCing. So i’m gonna continue watching my hair maybe till the end of the year and by then i’ll make a decision. Did i mention how much i love how naturals style their hair with accessories? Aww! J’adore! And the Curly Fro?
I think i might eventually go natural! 😉
P.S: Sorry for the repetitions. LOL
