Are You Happy with the Hair on Your Head?

Are You Happy with the Hair on Your Head?

I’m sitting in a spot with not-good internet access.

Good when you want to be unwired.

Bad when you really need to upload a blog post.

As soon as I get better access, I have a great video to show you.

(Me and my videos right?) 

If you missed the beginning, feel free to read the intro post for the #manechronicles and you’ll be all caught up.

But in the mean time I have a question for ya as we continue with #marchmadness.

And make sure you read all the way to the end because there is a special opportunity for me to hear from YOU and to SEE you too!

ManeChronicles

Are you happy with the hair on your head?

Whether you are red, yellow, black, or white, are you comfortable and confident with the strands that grow from your scalp in their natural state?

If so, how do you know you are?

And if you are not, what have you done to alter it, change it, or conceal it?

Right now…my hair looks a HOT MESS.

After running a #halfmarathon yesterday, I guess I should give myself a bit of a pass.  But I’m looking at pictures of myself and thinking… “Girl!  What is your hair doing right now!”

Half Marathon Finished!

But back to you and your hair …

Here’s a real good question.  If you are comfortable with your hair and still choose to alter, change it, or conceal it… why do you?

What about texture?

If you are naturally straight, do you curl it?

If you are naturally curly, do you straighten it?

What about color?

Do you cover up your gray or let it shine through?

Do you not like the color of your own hair and choose to be blonde instead of brown?

And length?

Are you dying for it to be longer? (and add hair to make it so?)

Or are you constantly wacking it because you easy works, short is cuter, or you could care less?

It’s our hair girls… let’s talk about it!

Happy with Your Hair?

Leave a comment?  Tell me what your thoughts about your hair!

And if you are up for even more…

Here’s a video challenge for you!

I’d love to SEE you as I hear what you have to say about you and the hair on your head!

I’ll choose from some of the videos to put a collage video together of us girls and what we think about our hair, how we struggle with our hair, love about our hair.  Can’t wait!

Here what you need to do..

  1. Use your phone or computer to take a video of 60 seconds or less talking about you and your hair.
  2. Answer this question – “Are you comfortable/confident with the natural state of the hair on your head.” Said another way?  “Do you like your real hair?”
  3. Email your video to chrystalschronicles@gmail.com
  4. Make sure you include your first name in the body of your email. (Everyone’s email doesn’t have their name in it.)
  5. Get your video in by 11:59 p.m this Wednesday (3/26).
  6. I apologize in advance, but I won’t be able to offer technical assistance.  Feel free to enlist the help of a friend (or teenagers are pretty good at this stuff too)!

Be serious. Be funny. Be YOU.  Now… GO!!!

Relax it’s #marchmadness and it’s OK to discuss miscellaneous matters of little importance every once in awhile.

    LOL About a year ago I decided to go natural. Several weeks ago, I colored my hair to make it lighter. Then I decided I wanted it dark again, so I put the rich brown on, went about my busyness for about an hour. When I rinsed it was practically orange! So off I go again this time with a pure black. Right now I have plum roots, black ends and a combination in between. Where to from here, who knows but I’ll enjoy the journey!

    All of us here out in Cyberland love you Chrystal…..you are so real & can get pretty deep but that humor of yours is so delightful! I adore my fake blonde naturally wavy wind blown looking hair! Hey, it was my natural color when I was 5; that was only 50 years ago….:-)

    I have neck length (not shoulder length)very thin ( kinky/nappy) natural hair–which I perm–I can not wear anything on it or it will break or thin I want to put a layer of weave in it to give it more fullness—Whats your take on that?

      Honestly… I think you have to try it to see what works!

    I read your devotion with Proverbs31 and noticed your name & wondered if you are Dr Tony Evans’ daughter. I enjoy your sister’s blog & I am enjoying reading your blogs as well.
    I decided in 2007 I was done with getting my hair relaxed/permed. I started my transition from chemicals to natural. I finally did the big chop & I have enjoyed the freeness. I had to learn how to do my hair all over again because I did not have a relaxer. I wore my puffs, braids, twists, & it was just fun. In 2009 I was diagnosed with BC & after chemo I was bald, with a few strands of hair because after much prayer I did not shave my head but just allowed whatever took place. Within a few days while still taking chemo my hair started growing back, even my Dr was shocked. God is awesome. I now have a head full of hair and I learned a lot. My husband has always supported me & encouraged me with enjoying my natural hair. We have 4 beautiful daughters. Our youngest daughter went natural in 2012 (she attends Spelman College & she did the big chop her sophomore year) and she enjoys it. Our youngest daughters went natural high school year. Our oldest daughters are twins & in the military. Our middle daughter states she tried natural but she prefers relaxers, she runs track at Tuskegee University. I enjoy your blog & I am sharing with my daughters and sisters.
    God bless & thanks for sharing
