Last week, I decided that I wanted to try something different. Blame it on hormones, mid-life or stress, I don’t know. Blame it on whatever you like.
I started looking at dreads. I did a little research, asking my friends and looking on pinterest. I found some really cute photos and styles. I really like the skinny dreads.
I think what I like the most though, is just messy hair. I’m not one for brushing my hair. Many times I wash it and go. I don’t comb it out. Many days I get up and go, I don’t brush my hair.
This past week, I went all week long without combing out my hair at all. The big huge mass of knot that starts right in the back of my head is what I try to avoid though. I get it all of the time. I kept my hair uncombed all week, until this morning.
This morning, it was a HUGE knot. I could feel the weight of it. Time for a hairbrush. I brushed it out and felt some weird….sadness
I don’t know that I necessarily want to the dreads. I’ve been thinking about them and mulling over many things in my mind. I don’t think I could see it through for as long as dreads take. I would get bored with it before I could get good ones.
Messy hair I can do though! Even if I comb it out every now and then. The option would still be there to style my hair differently this way.
Also, with my current job hunting, I may not want to go in and apply somewhere starting some dreads out.
Instead, I’ll just dye my hair. I’d love to do a dye job with just my ends pink or purple. Even a bright red. Or just parts of my hair died a color.
I won’t be too picky right now. I want something new, different, cheap and easy.
Until then, I may just go messy.
