Curly Hair, Don’t Care

After spending the last year in counseling for postpartum depression, my heart and mind have unraveled in ways that, while painful, have liberated me. I am learning to love myself in all of the undone-ness of being human -- it only seems natural that my hair should follow suit. One Google search three months ago sent me down a rabbit hole of new information. Women who had fought their hair for years were embracing their curls! Support groups and product methods, strange acronyms and rules, flooded my browser tabs. Pages and pages of before-and-after pictures convinced me, and I dove hair-first into the curly girl method.
Occasionally I scroll through Pinterest or Instagram to see what the cool kids are wearing. And here's what I am discovering: I will never be one of the cool kids. Maybe I never was. It's hard to tell. But just beyond the thousands of "I need Jesus and coffee" shirts on Instagram, there is a whole world of fashion/looking good/beauty tips that I don't understand.

Consider this my gift to you: FIVE looks that seriously take FIVE minutes (or less). Some involve a curling iron and some bobby pins, but I promise you CAN do this! Now that I have perfected these looks, I feel confident that once my mop is dry (which takes a while), I can finish my look in about five minutes -- depending on how many fights I have break up and snacks I have to make in the process.

We then talked about how we would not be "one of those moms." We would keep our loooonnngggg free flowing locks. Now, here I am . . . 11-ish years later . . . with a baby napping in the other room . . . and super *short-to-me* hair. In fact, I chopped more than 10 inches off very soon after giving birth.
