    Default Stuck in a Rut!

    Hey Gals,

    I need your help. I am so freaking annoyed with my hair right now. I love my hair I really do, but I just don't have any thing to do with it. I feel like its just there, blah, meh...I've colored it. Locked it. and done everything minus getting a perm (a no no) so I don't know what to do. I tried watching a few videos on Youtube for ideas and actually became angry, ugh! I need HELP!

    Has anyone else felt like this? If so, how do I get rid of the feeling?

    Please help.

    When I get frustrated with my hair, I usually put it in kinky twists for a while. That way I dont have to "deal" with it for a month or 2 and I can get a break. It also keeps me from doing anything drastic to it, like cutting it off!

    What made you angry about the Youtube vids?

    and how is your hair now? (loced or loose?)

    My hair is loose. I think I was just peeved about Youtube because I don't think that those women can help me with my hair. Its just frustrating I guess. I'm getting tired of putting two strand twist in, taking them down, washing my hair, and repeating the same boring process.

    I need a change. Ideas?

    I'm feeling this way, too. My hair feels gunky and gummy and completely unmanageable when I wash it. Have tried clarifying, cutting product usage way back...nothing seems to be helping. Plus, have just discovered that the length I thought I was retaining must have been a trick of the light. I am so tired of buns and twists and twist outs and wash-and-gos and afro puffs and frohawks and everything, everything, everything! I just want to cut it all off and start over.

    But I look like an daggone alien with short hair, as much as I love it. I had to have a come-to-Jesus talk with myself after looking at pictures of myself with various short hair styles [natural and permed]. I just look like a crazy person with short hair.

    Natural hair is super versatile. What kind of styles do you want to wear? I like routine so wearing the same style alot doesn't bother me. When I get annoyed w/styling my hair I braid it up or wear a half wig. Maybe you can find a good stylist and treat yourself to getting your hair done for a while.
