People who are meticulous, go above and beyond, and have a high attention to details love my hair in VERY defined hairstyles like a first day wash and go OR a highly defined (non-frizzy) twist-out. They believe that every hair has its place! The hubsters and Glenda, my friend from church fall into this category.
Those people who are all about fun, carefree, and total sweethearts love my hair big, fluffy, and all over the place. I achieve this look by thoroughly detangling on dampened hair and doing chunky twists in no particular fashion all over my head. In the morning (or a few hours later) I take the twists down and fluff my hair up at the roots with a wide tooth comb. Cara, my friend from church, and Vonnie, my little cousin from Socialite Dreams fall into this category.
Some people are just laid back and kind of go with the flow. For some reason, a lot of men fall into this category....giggles! They love a nice blow out, maybe with some type of accessory. My friends from church, Jason and Joel, definitely fall into this category.
Next, there are people who have a few personality traits from each category above. They enjoy being wild, fun, and crazy, but not overboard, and they also enjoy a classic put together look, which for me is a puff. The hubsters also falls into this category, as well as, my mom; my cousin, Shanteele; and ME!!!
Lately, I've been wearing my hair in a shrunken afro. I'm kind of in a hair rut, and I'm trying not to fret so much over it. I spritz a little of my water mixture, seal with extra virgin olive oil, and I fluff a tiny bit with my wide tooth comb. Occasionally, I'll put some extra make up on, or a side part, or flower, to jazz up my look. At night, I don't even bother twisting or braiding my hair to stretch it out, I just throw on a satin bonnet, let it shrink up, and be done!
Do you wear your hair in a certain way to please others? What reactions do you get to certain hairstyles?
