Time for a Touch-up
Well, it’s time to touch up my roots with some color. Honestly, from a purely aesthetic stand point, I go too long between touch ups. In fact, it’s most likely been about three months since the last time I colored my roots. Part of it is sheer laziness and the other reason has more to do with the fact that I have a friend help me. I get it done at her house, and I can’t bring myself to bother her more than I do. Hence, the reason I go about two months or more before I get my roots done again.
Anyhoo, at first, I was going to try to do it with my box braids in tact, but then decided I might have a hard time trying to get to my roots through the braids. So I took each one down, detangled a bit and then put my hair in twists.
The one thing that I’m starting to notice is that my ends seem thin and wispy. I’m not sure why. Well, maybe I do. I remember when I first colored my hair, I did a couple of full head applications — maybe three — trying to get just the right shade. This, I think, really did a number on my hair. I’ve since only put color on my roots, but I really think my ends have suffered from over processing. Just seems that my hair is thicker the closer you get to my scalp and gets thinner towards the ends. As a result, I may end up, cutting off several inches one of these days. I’ll hold out long as I can, but yeah, I do think a good cut is in the cards most likely sometime next spring.
In the meantime, I took this opportunity to take some miscellaneous pics before I run out of here to go get my hair colored. They’ll come in handy for something I’m sure.
