The Natural Hair Struggle: I don't know what to do with my HAIR!!! Ugh...

Beauties, HELP ME! 

Over the past 3 years, I've change my hair (drastically) a number of times. I was Loc'd for 4 years, then combed those out and became a loose natural. Now I'm in that funky stage when your tapered cut begins growing out! I have a few options:

  1. Keep my tapered cut. Meaning I will keep the sides and back cut lower like pic 3.
  2. Let me hair grow out and rock stellar twist-outs like pic 2.
  3. Or Loc my hair up again!
Loc's were so easy to maintain. 10 times easier than being loose natural and 20x easier than the tapered cut. So naturally I would like to return to locs. Problem is I don't want to deal with the ugly stage again. About two months I started my own set of locs again...and they looked ok for a few days. That's when I was reminded of that dreadful (no pun intended lol) stage. I just can't do it. lol

If I loc' again, I'll probably have shoulder length loc extensions installed. Don't worry, they won't look fake. Being loose natural was fun! It had been a long time since I put a comb to my head so I enjoyed my scalp being free, as well as the volume of my hair. Two strand twist outs were my favorite. Right now, I do love my tapered cut, I really do. My husband wants me to rock it a bit longer and have my sides cut down again. I'm open to it, but I need to retain my length just in case I decide to grow my hair out or Loc again! See my dilemma? lol

This is clearly an impromptu post. I just really want to know what you guys think. What the heck should I do with my hair? At the moment, I'm leaning towards Loc's.

Hit me in the comments!

  1. I think I am about to take my loc journey. Very scared, but its only hair. What ever you decide, you will be flawless.

  2. I stuggle(d) with this same dilemma. I went from permed short hair, which I absolutely adored, to locs, to picking them out, rocking a puff, some twist outs, and blowouts and then back to locs. Whatever you choose you know that it's hair and it will grow and look beautiful in any style. :) #womenandhair #mymomshouldhaveprepairedme
