Still straight

Well, the hair is still straight.  It's been this way for a little over a week.  I'm trying to take it to at least a full 2 weeks.  This is really hard for me as I hate the feeling of "old" straight hair.  For me, after about 5 days, it has lost it's "swang" and just feels different, and I am usually over it by then.  But, for my hair's sake--if I'm going to put 400 degree heat on it, I think it's only fair to take it to the limit.  Plus, I have to admit, it is easier this way.  I do see why after hitting a certain length, some tend to prefer wearing their hair blown out/flat ironed, etc.  Not to mention, my shower drain is thanking me.

Anyway, today I'm wearing my hair like this.  I have been working out still, so my roots are a little "fluffy".  This bun hides that fact well.  I plan on doing a bantu knot out on it in the next day or so.  I will definitely do a post on that, and maybe even a video.

Oh, and as you can see my hair is a dark brown-red color.  In some pics it looks black, but it's far from it.  I'm actually contemplating going jet black the next time I wash my hair.  Ready for a change.  What do you think?

Holla back!


  1. First off your hair is FAB! I do think that jet black hair always looks healthier and theres just something about jet black hair that seems more exotic to me. I say jet black :-)

  2. I really like your bun! I have been going back and forth on hair color as well being my hair is a faded auburn color. I read recently dark hair ages you so frame the face with highlights and that's what I plan on doing. I certainly don't want to look older than I am.

  3. Thank you ladies! I've decided to go ahead with the black. It's always been my fave. I have commitment issues, so I only use a semi-permanent (Natural Instincts) because I know that I can lighten later if I want...which I probably will do again at some point. :)

  4. Hi Nik,

    Love the Bun! Love Jet Black. I too have commitment issues when it comes to color. So, I only do semi-permanent as well. Can't wait to see the pics of the bantu knots. Take Care! P.S. I heart your blog!



I read and appreciate all comments & questions!
