HEY Y’ALL!!! I am slowly getting back into my posting groove. I want to announce that I am officially DONE with my grad school classes, and I’m currently waiting for commencement on Tuesday *Does the Tootsie Roll*. To celebrate receiving my Master’s, I am going to the Dominican Republic and doing hoodrat things with my friends HAHA! No really, I’m literally going to relax, unwind, and figure out my plan to take over the world.
For the last month while I was stressing over my class assignments, I was also stressing over how I am going to do my hair for this trip. I always rock a protective style anytime I go on vacation because I don’t feel like being bothered with my hair, and it allows me to focus on having fun. However, I have NO time at all to dedicate to installing box braids, which is my desired style, and I don’t want to pay anyone to install the box braids for me. Plus, I would have to prep the Kanekalon hair by soaking it in ACV because I’m allergic to synthetic hair. I also would blow my hair out because I think would make blending my hair with the synthetic hair much better. Not to mention, it would probably take 10+ hours to install them! Sigh…
After washing my hair last week, I thought about possibly rockin’ a wash n go fro on this trip. After mentioning this thought on my social media pages, I received mixed comments, which both advocated for and against the fro. I really don’t see anything wrong with the fro though. I would probably start with a twist-out, which will become a curly fro after a couple of days. Depending on if I somehow fall in the ocean, I’d literally do to co-wash, add a moisturizer, and go. I do not intend on detangling or anything. LOL
While it may seem like I made up my mind, I really haven’t. It’s nothing for me to get the random urge to buy some hair and put in braids if I think I have time to. On the other hand, I have so much going on that I really don’t want to waste valuable last minute packing time on putting in box braids. Only time will tell what I decide to do, but I have less than a week to decide LOL.
What do you all think I should do? I will literally take your comments/suggestions seriously because I am so indecisive.
