Last week was a good hair week. I wore a twistout for 4 days. I was able to keep it moisturized, so I really got to see my true texture in a healthy state. I noticed that from the roots to about 3 inches is wavy and smooth, while my ends are wiry, course and straw-like. Also, my tips are black...the semi-permanent color I had in May ended up being permanent! I've said it before, but I really mean it this time: I WILL NEVER GET A BLACK COLOR AGAIN. It causes too much damage and now I know for sure it changes the texture of my hair. I really want to just cut the black out so I can experience my true hair texture, but I want to wait another month or two to get a little more length.
To think that since I big chopped almost 5 months ago, I thought my hair was course with no real curl pattern, when it was really the color that made it this way!
I'm really excited to work with a full head of healthy color-free hair. I think my ends will behave so much better. If I get impatient over the next couple of months, I may do small dustings every couple of weeks until the black is gone.
