Natural Hair... WOES??

Hey, ladies 'n gents.

I'm coming to you today in the most honest way: I'm so over my hair. Yes. It's true. No, I don't regret being natural and no, I don't want to relax or straighten (I've been natural for 4 years now). What does this mean? I'm not sure, but I think I am really just BORED with my hair. It is in a weird grow-back stage where the length is awkward (really long in the back, shorter in the front). I got my hair cut in layers last Sept/Oct and initially it made my hair fuller and yielded great twistouts. I also got color then. However, now it's growing out and not laying right and every twist out turns into a high puff because I'm never happy with it. Smh Over it, I tell you! Another thing: I think I have become dissatisfied with my hair after wearing so many protective styles over the last 1-1.5 years. Now, I'm brainstorming ways to "keep it interesting" and am strongly considering cutting in. I don't even know how I want it cut but I need a major change. And the sooner, the better.

I totally understand and I've been feeling the same way lately. I'll be at 3 years since my big chop in July and I think I just need a change. I've been considering getting locks but not sure I can commit to not being able to switch it up when I want. Oh well....

I was in the same exact place, and I just kept continuing to cut my hair, and now i'm rocking a very close cut. I love it, it's never been easier to manage!

@Hitgirl I understand!

I love your hair in the pic. Love your hair and I know sometimes it can be hard to handle. I've had mine cut the same length.
