Transformation Tuesday! It wasn’t that long ago I decided to grow out my sides (I had a KILLER edge up and all). Yes, there was an awkward phase (lasted abt two-three months) but that, just like my look, quickly changed! I was determined to grow my hair out and look-a-here: both sides out here prospering 🙌.
I know a lot of you get discouraged during the growing phase, but tough it out. I wore my hair in styles that would best suit me during the transition: twist outs, AFROS, Havana Twists - endless styling options. On most days I didn’t even bother with my sides - no styling, no tugging, just let them grow out unbothered.
My biggest advice is to not get caught up on how it’s “suppose” to look and just do your own thing. Accept your growth in the phase that’s it’s in and just let it be. I just wanted to show you that when you make bold moves with your hair there is still a light at the end of the tunnel. Have fun with your hair and remember: it grows back! Be happy, be patient, be confident - be you! 💜 (at steelfeatherlaceelephant.com)
