Everyday Will Not Be A Good Hair Day

On Facebook I mentioned that everyday is not a good hair day, naturals have bad hair days too. Yesterday was my bad hair day. I woke up to a matted mess on top my head because I was too lazy to prep before bed. Looking in the mirror wondering how was I going to style this stuff quickly I began thinking about youtubers and bloggers that can create gorgeous styles in minutes and figured if they can do it so can I.

Started lightly spritzing with water & applied some whipped shea all over. Using mostly my hands then resorting to a wide tooth comb gently detangled as much as I could in 5 minutes. Begin tucking and rolling the back portion and secured it with a goody hair clip. I took what was left in the front and began doing random twists. Took those twists and pinned to the side.

In my mind I was creating this gorgeous updo but in reality it looked nothing liked I imagined. Since I did not want to be late for work, took one last look in the mirror shrugged my shoulders and walked out the door. Although it did not look as good as I wanted I rocked it anyway.

Have you experienced any bad hair days while natural? How do you deal with it?

    I have definitely had my share! I have to keep telling myself it can' t be perfect everyday. Having a few alternate styles helps too.

    You are right about having alternate styles. Thinking about placing a sticky note of a few quick styles that work on the mirror.
