Every morning for the last several years my hubbie has watched me tussle, tango and sometimes curse at my natural mane. I mean for the most part I love my natural hair in all of its glory just as much as the curly haired muppet on Sesame Street, but other times it just gets on my last nerve. By the end of the morning this ritual leaves me minus a nerve. Now, I have worn every style under the sun…..The high bun, the low bun, the leave in twist bun, french roll bun, the French twist, the roll and tuck, the French roll, the stop drop and roll, the roll your eyes, and my all time favorite the cinnabun….Okay, now I am just being factitious.
This morning was no different than any other morning. Grimace, pout, pull up, pin, tuck down, and twist over. Now, I normally get my husband to do a once over glance before I leave the house. Heavens knows I need someone to do it because sometimes I just ain’t in the mood to “Lex Luger” my hair into a perfectly coiffed do. That being said, my husband and I have developed what I have affectionately coined a “morse code” for natural hair. One nod means “you good." Two nods means no boo…do not pass go.
Now, I proceed to slap some flax seed gel on my hair to smooth it up and gather my tufts into the style I saw a popular you-tuber perform. Honey, everything ain’t for everybody. When I finished I knew my hair looked like a donkey’s tush, but I was short on time and my stomach was empty. Food trumps appearance for me e’ery day, thus I continued to put on my clothes and I continued to pretend like my hair was actually “cute”. My hubbie turned around took one look at me and said, “Wait you remind me of someone.” He feverishly began typing on his iPad and looked up at me and fell out laughing. He said, “That’s it! I know who it is you look like sho nuff." I said, “Who in the hay is sho nuff." He said, "You know sho nuff from the Last Dragon." He pushed the iPad toward me and I fell out laughing too.
So, ladies let’s prove my hubbie wrong. What do ya’ll think…Is this natural hair fierce? We often proclaim our do as “fierce” when sometimes we know it looks a "HOT MESS." I’ve done it before and am not quite sure why???
So, Vote #1 in the comment section for fierce natural hair or #2 for sho nuff hair. I vote #2 for sho nuff, cause this is sho nuff a “hot mess" GIRLLLLL STOPPPP. A killer outfit, accessories, make-up, and a pair of red bottoms couldn’t save this do! In case you don’t know who sho nuff is peep the link below.... I bet you will fall out too.
Here are pictures of my sho nuff…do....
Pitiful, I know. Just look at that strand of pearls. Why do we always think a strand of pearls will tip us over into a professional look? Even though everything else looks a mess...
Check you later ladies
