I have been going through hair woes for the past year and I have to say that once again I'm at a crossroads. I have no clue what to do with my hair on a daily basis nevertheless for my wedding
Meredith...I don't know what you are talking about not having the face for short hair!! If anything you just need to find the style that best fits you. I'm not to sure about natural hair...but I heard that texturizers are not as harsh as relaxers and perms.
I'm not tryin to be contrary or anything, but I just want to say, texturizers, relaxers, texlaxers, silkeners etc etc etc.... It's ALL the same stuff.

Ladies, my wedding is in less than three weeks in Jamaica and I don't know exactly what to do with my hair. I have worn my hair short for years but decided to grow my hair unfortunately when I workout my hair doesn't grow and now it's just a about 2.5 - 3 inches (natural). I don't know what to do, I have only wore a weave once and I had it done in Rome, Italy. I wouldn't know where to go get a good weave sewn in here in MD.
Boy, do I miss my maintanance free short hair. I am afraid even if I perm my hair, the humidity will end up making my hair look like Don King. I have been wearing braids for the past few months. Any suggestions?
What about a twistout worn loose, or a braid out or bun out depending on the wave pattern you want. Also, were you rinsing your scalp daily when you were working out, and moisturizing your hair root to tip? That may help with the retention, cuz hair's always growing (unless ur ill), it's just the length is not necessarily being retained. CurlyNikki would be a great reference for you too! TONS of knowledgeable natural ladies there.

For me, it's low maint, especially with everything I have going on...lol
I love how our hair can be as low maintenance or as high maintenance as we want it to be!! Your twistout sounds beautiful and I'm leaning toward a twistout pinned up somehow with a flower for my style too...but we'll see what I actually end up with, lord knows my mind changes from day to day.
