Hey guys! On Thursday June 20, I got my Sisterlocks cut off. Yes, I cut my hair that had been growing for over 5 years. Why? I had breakage, I had no idea what to do with it, and I wanted a change. How did it go down? My mom got her hair scissors and cut off my locs. After that I was on Pinterest for hours looking at short hairstyles. The very next day, I went to the barber shop and got it trimmed and shaped up.
Here are some pictures:
I am in love with my short hair! I am still getting used to it. What have I learned or noticed so far? Even with really short hair, the shrinkage is real (shout out to all my fellow 4C ladies who know the struggle). Second, with a new hair style comes a new maintenance routine. Third, Pinterest is a great resource in deciding on a haircut.
I am in love with my hair now! Admittedly, I haven’t been this excited about my hair in a while. I have even been inspired to wear more make up. If you want to see more photos from my new hair journey, they are on my Instagram, @theupsideksb. Thank you for reading!
