Day 7 of 365 Days of Wash and Gos

“Day 7 of 365 Days of Wash&Gos ✨

I’m 15 minutes late 🧐.

The definition is pretty much gone. Only my ends are defined. So I decided to wear these cute braids styled with Accessorize hair bands.

How do you style your wash and go set when you loose definition? Rewash and set or keep it going?” @ buttermeperfect January 8th 2022.

What do you do when it’s not wash days, your curls are gone and you want to look cute?

Yes, you braid it up. At least that’s what I do when I don’t feel like putting my hair into a bun and smoothing everything in to not give fly aways any chance.

I made 7 chunky braids, two in the front and 5 in the middle back that I joined together. This hair style of course looks 100% better once the braids touch your bra straps, but my hair isn’t there yet. And we have to stop the obsession of long hair in the natural hair community.

These days everything is about long hair, thick hair or very defined silky curly hair.

There’s nothing in between and people literally punish you when it comes to social media and content creation, if your hair doesn’t look the same as their favourite hair idols. I often really wonder why we can’t bring reality to social media.

Observe your environment, how many (white) people have long and highly densed hair?

What makes you feel something is wrong with your hair? I consider myself to have medium density with fine to normal hair strands. And it looks the way it looks on camera. We have to start normalising average hair and not insult others, because their hair has not the tendency to swell or appear dense.

You’re either born with high density or very coarse hair or not.

There are no products that can increase the hair strands growing out of your scalp unless you have a malfunction of your body that needs to be treated. Only hair transplant surgeries can help you, if you have the financial budget.

So learn to accept your hair, be kind to others and don’t see wigs and clip-ins as average hair. These extensions can create long term insecurities, especially when you think you have low density hair and in reality it’s just average medium density hair.
