Here is a question for us all: are you lazy with your hair? With natural hair comes diversity in styling, fun, sometimes (lol) becoming a product junkie and let’s admit (because there is no getting around it): lots of work. Whether transitioning or doing the Big Chop, it takes time for hair to grow. Hair on one person’s head may grow a little faster while another person’s might grow slower but at any rate there is the task of how we take care of our hair that can make all the difference.
After transitioning and doing my Big Chop, I tried products and styles and vitamins (like Biotin) to try toÂ get the desired look that I saw on other naturals that I wanted on myself. Three years later, yes three, andÂ I have finally decided that being lazy, my way at least, is the best thing for me when taking care of my hair. It might be for you as well. Now, what I mean by “lazy” for myself can be a different “lazy” for you. I am not saying in any way to stop doing what is working for you. Lazy for me is simplicity. Especially for my type of hair.Â I have finally learned that my hair loves it when I Â ‘take a chill pill’ from styling it and braiding it and doing this and that to it. My lazy is one style that I can leave in for a whole week, wash and deep condition and put it into a protective style and leave alone. It’s a style that’s simple yet pretty that I wouldn’t want to touch or mess up so I won’t take it down. It’s easy to tie down at night and get up and go in the morning. I love being “lazy” with my hair while taking care of it at the same time. It has truly taken me years to get to this point but sometimes lessons come hard. Through hair breakage, preventing my hairÂ from growing due to too much manipulation and weaves andÂ unnecessary products that do absolutely nothing to aid my hair a simple regimen and basicÂ hair care or rather my “lazy” is what my hair loves. And lazy is what I’m going to give it. team #fineLODE
