Shanti of A curls BestÂ FriendÂ wrote a post today about re-igniting the flame between you and your hair,Â especiallyÂ after a couple years of doing the same old thing over and over. I started to think about my relationship with Emily and honestly we are kind of like an old married couple? Is that so bad? sure the flame is gone, I no longer get excited on wash day, IÂ don’tÂ play in my hair like I used to and even my excessive visits to Sallys and otherÂ beautyÂ supply stores have kind of dwindled. So Shanti posed the question, how do you get the flame back? What makes you want to try different hairstyles and get excited about your hair again?.
Oh and she also mentioned she used to look at the blog posts daily(Curly Nikki and Moptopmaven) – That was me, I would never ever miss a day!
So how do we get the flame back? can we? or are we just too busy talking about hair to actually do our hair?
Â I know Im a victim of hair boredom or thatÂ #imtoobusyforthisishÂ attitude- I will bun in a minute and with a baby on the way, its about to get worse real quick.
Set a new hair goal – My hair is below bra strap stretched right now, what if I just used my routineÂ whichÂ has been working for me, to gain longer lengths. This way I can keep doing what I am doing and I will have a valid excuse for not experimenting so much and ‘igniting a flame so to speak’- see.. easy!
