Dear Natural Hair,

I'm breaking up with you... maybe.
Quite frankly I've bin over my natural hair for a while now. The twist out, braid out and that dreaded bantu have become daunting taskS for me.

During my loose natural hair journey, ( was never a journey per say but whatever...) I have to say my hair was the healthiest in 2013.

 Boy oh boy was I obsessed with my hair back then, but it was a lot of work. The constant deep conditioning, moisturizing and re-twisting. Wow, I had patience! I can't see myself going back to that right now. Kudos to the new moms with fly twist-outs.

Two big chops and heat damage later, I'm here at "ugh". So whats next? Back to locs? Another big chop? Perm maybe?? I have nothing against perm. I got caught up in the natural hair movement since my locs were a big hit among the YouTube community. But it was not my identity. I was just a woman with her hair loc'd at that point in her life. I feel like just a few understood that.

 I'm not sure what is next for me and this hair. We just have to wait and see.
Bye bye natural hair community???
