I received calls today from two different women who have done my hair in the past. After the greetings, both wanted to know what I was "doing for Christmas" i.e. what I plan on doing to my hair for Christmas. Co-incidentally, I had been thinking about the same thing over the last week.
Last year, a few months after just moving back home, I was introduced to the idea of Christmas Hair. This year, I wondered "Do I want to do anything to my hair?" I hate sitting for hours to get my hair done into a style that will not last more than a couple of weeks. Kinky twists look best on my natural hair and I have done that twice this year already. I know I spoke about making that my staple style, but now I think that's just boring (okay, probably no less boring than the afro puff I wear the rest of the time).
I know there are relatively few women with natural hair who choose not to wear it in locs or very short. But I'd really be interested in hearing how women with medium-long natural hair wear their hair (aside from extensions and weaves) especially when they are going out to a special event. Maybe I'll post some pics later if I find anything.
