curly hair

will i ever have a ponytail? geesh!!

curly hairso here i am, still on my little hair growing journey hoping to have my full, sorta longish, luxurious ponytail someday. as you can see, my hair ain’t quite there yet. it’s heck-a full, but just long enough for a ponytail. an itty bitty, pulled back so tight ponytail that only lasts about five minutes before the sides begin to ache for freedom and bust loose leaving me looking like a frizzy dandelion.

oh, the frustration of growing hair. the in-between phase just utterly sucks. there just isn’t much i can do with it. it’s just kinda there. sticking up in every direction, looking nuts. a lot of days i cover it with a beanie.

beanies are my best friends.

i’m fighting hard against chopping it all off and getting back into my short-do comfy zone. i’m holding tight and envisioning that hopefully one day sorta soon my hair will look something like this…

 

this woman’s hair is gorgeous!! curls are healthy and poppin’ and flowing in the wind. i luv it!

and if i’m really patient enough maybe one day i can go back to this…

    i LOVE thick curly hair going everywhere and nowhere. missed my own when i had to go bald for surgery. now? i can’t seem to grow it back. not because it will not grow, but because every time i reach the “in-between” phase, i retreat and chop it back off again. perhaps, i should invest in beanies, too. (ho-hum). good luck on your hair journey! it looks great where it IS.

      oh, thanks!! beanie’s have been a saving grace for me because as you know, that in-between phase is no fun! :)
