Afro Neglect

Yep. It is what I have been doing for the past 2 weeks. I have been neglecting it and hoping no one notices. But of course everyone does. My husband was looking at me sideways for the last few days and saying semi under his breath along with a fake cough "Ahem....what's up with your hair? *Cough*...I love you an all but girl gotta work on that fro....*Cough*".

So in his not so slick way I finally figured out it was time to get back to my roots. Seriously. I hadn't touched my roots in those 2 weeks.

Ever since I did my mini twists takedown here, I have just done a wash and go style whenever I actually had to leave the house. Nothing more, nothing less. Until today when I had to go out for a religious meeting. It was at 4:00 and I finally came to realization that the twists I left in and never fully unfurled were now turning into mini locs. Since I'm not going for that look, I needed to get my head in check.

Fast forward to the 45 minutes I spent in the shower cleaning and detangling my fro. At the end I had a great head of hair to show for it. Clean and poppin'!

Tonight I am sitting on the couch catching up on some blog reading and the husband walks in and says "You know this afternoon the shower looked like you got visited by an afro samarai and you got beat!"

I guess I lost alot of hair this go round...yikes! I hope this will not happen again. I am going to be more vigilant and on top of this here cute little mop of mine.

What about you my fellow naturals? Do you ever just let your hair go and then pay for it later? I have a theory that I am still thinking might make a great post but we'll see if I write it down.

Let me know if I'm alone on this front.
