I wacked it off to look Like this???

Posted by BeautyGUMBO at 3:21 AM

Is stress showing threw my hair? Like serious I take 2 steps forward and it up back. My hair was looking and feeling so soft and beautiful but its those ends that kept drying out on me! I had control for awhile.

But I notice when I am stressed down or feeling so Blue I will get a itchy scalp, is that a sign that stress is causing my new hair problems. After a Melt down I took the freaking cutters and whacked away! TIMBER as the Hair HIT THE floor OMG I looked in the mirror and said what the Hell Have I down. It was like doing a big Chop with no purpose!
So I will stop dying my hair Black! And pull out every oil it is because I am going to need it quick fast and in a hurry. I need my hair I cant even do a dam ponytail! Again ladies stay away from the cutters!!!
Can you give me some ideas on what to do with my hair?
weave it, sew it, grow it, wig it, re nig it, Or what? HELP! LOL

If you want to grow it out, do not snip. I have rushed to chop a few times during my journey and regretted it. I say put your hair in a protective style and then give yourself time to consider what's causing the issues. If it is stress-related than you can chop all you want and still get the same results b/c you haven't removed the stress. I read an article awhile back about knowing when to cut your hair, how to decipher thinning or catching up/growing out. I will try to find it, it was by chicoro. It helped me alot. I know now to give myself time and not make sudden decisions when it comes to snipping.
I say keep it protected and grow it back with braids, sew-in, cute textured styles(braidout/twistout/curls).
Your beautiful and very creative, you can make it work!!!

I love this post! I love the comment from LaQT too! I cut off an inch & 1/2 b/c my ends were drying out. I know how you feel. I am rocking the Cleo. (you know, how Queen looked in Set it off?) LOL I do that on the regular. Seal my ends w/ that Carol's Daughter Hair Milk. It feels so soft. I am religious about tying it up @ night so it won't dry out. I rocks the wigs on the regular. I've committed to doing this until Jan. Then I will see the state of my hair & make a REAL decision then. I say stay away from the shears when you're frustrated or emotional. I did 2 big chops in an emotional state. It was not a good look the 1st x. I looked like Shirley from What's Happening. Not cute! Def continue to protect. I KNOW you baby your hair. Keep drinking your water. You're doing a great job Lidia!

Thank you so very much LaQT I find this much helpful and thanks for the response!
And a big thank you to 1xellus1 as well, Yes will not get to cutting in a frantic static state. I was pissed at the world that day and lets just say My hair didnt help either. I wish I could braid it would make it all so simple!

You could either make it work for you or wear braids for the winter as a protective style. I am sure what ever you choose it will look beautiful

I love your post!! Like the previous commentor "LaQT", I say you should protect your hair as much as possible during this transitional period. A wig or a sew-in would be good. If you're hair is weak, braids may further weaken the hair follicle, so be careful. Whatever decision you decide, ensure that you keep your hair clean, drink lots of water and take vitamins b/c that helps keep your hair healthy as well. Your eating habits and overall health plays a big part in your hair being healthy or not. Good luck my beautiful sista!!

THIS IS MY 1ST TIME HERE BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT UR HAIR ISSUE. FOR ONE I JUST CUT MY HAIR MYSELF AND I DID FOR CATCH UP PURPOSES. IT WAS REALLY UNEVEN AND NOW I AM MUCH HAPPIER. YET I DID A LIL RESEARCH ON AFRICAN AMERICAN HAIR AND WHAT I HEAR IS YOU HAVE TO WASH YOU HAIR ON A SCHEDULE EVERY 4-5 DAYS. IF YOU HAVE A PERM DO NOT USE "NO LYE" RELAXER. IT WILL EAT RIGHT THRU YOUR HAIR ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. USE "CONDITIONING RELAXER" AND MAKE SURE U BUY ALL THE ITEMS SEPERATLY NEVER USE HOME KITS. TRY TO STAY WITHIN THE SAME BRANDS. IF YOU ARE COLORING AS WELL YOU HAVE TO BE EXTRA CAREFUL USE HIGH "PROTIEN" CONDITIONERS. NEXXUS CONDITIONERS ARE AMAZING AND WILL SOLVE ALOT OF DRYNESS IN UR HAIR.WELL I'LL STOP NOW CUZ I WILL WRITE A BOOK IF I CONTINUE. NEXT TIME U POST I'LL BE SURE TO LET U KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO.. HOPE THIS HELPS
