The Struggle of wash day is only truly appreciated by a fellow natural. Following a YouTube tutorial with all due diligence, and ending up with an unwearable tangle of tumbleweeds, (instead of the formless continuation of textured waves you envisioned) is a wound to the ego felt in the very soul. The time spent curing the style in expensive combinations of oils, creams and clays to end in disaster can make the mind turn in on itself.
The siren call of creamy crack is loudest when installing the inevitable low bun to tuck away offensive scraggly tresses.
That call is best silenced by reason. The devil always Temps us at our lowest point, fellow naturals!
So, no, my hair did not turn out like the tutorial, but it is still super soft and manageable, as well as healthy with lots of other options for styling next time!
I wanted to chronicle this learning lesson because I am sure others have experienced similar disappointment.
Soldiering on, fellow naturals. My hair will live to slay another day!
