Greetings, everyone! I thought I shared my new hair journey with you all! Obviously, I did not! Well, back in January, I’m thinking Jan. 15 to be exact, I made my mind up that I was ready to cut my hair. I had been admiring some fierce fades and short cuts with popping colors lately (like the one above😍).
Being a new mom I basically had zero time for my hair. No more time for home made treatments and sealing my ends whenever I felt like it. Wash day and detangling was a headache and I was experiencing a lot of shedding. I’m thinking postpartum hair loss was a contributing factor. My new growth was so much thicker than my ends so attemping to wear a fro was just a sad experience.
My scalp was also starting to suffer. I was wearing braids for the longest out of convenience and not cleansing like I should. I felt like my hair and scalp was basically in bad condition! I had the length I always wanted but couldn’t do anything with it so what was the point?
Fresh from the barbershop!
I am loving the cut. Right now, I am aiming to grow a mohawk. Maybe more like a faux hawk as you can see in the last pic I posted. I’m having fun with the designs too! I want to try all types of cuts and colors now!
1st design. Loved it!
I told the barber to get creative. I know you can’t tell but it’s purple up top💜
I’m going to do a separate post about how I maintain my shorter do so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, I made a short video with more details about my experience! You can see where i started and my final results! Check it out!
Thank for stopping by! See you soon!
