To Hide My Hair or To Not Hide My Hair

My Hairlicious Ego is a blog written by me, Alexis. Alexis (which is me) is a 24 year old college graduate who is entering grad school this month. HOWEVER, in my household, I am under such strict rules that I could pull my hair out. These rules I speak of are anything from what time to come in, asking permission to go places, chores to do at home and WEAVE. Yes, weave. I cannot get weave in my household. I am so mad that my decisions about my hair can only go so far. My parents do not believe that women should wear weave. They believe that it is unnatural; they believe that it is ghetto and too fake looking. However, weave can offer good and bad results. Weave gives your real hair a break. If I was to put a sew-in in my hair, my hair could be given a break from combing, brushing and hair ties. Weaves could act as buffers and they could soak the moisture from you real hair, leaving your real hair dry and possibly neglected. Also, there is the point about who are you letting in your head. Can you really trust just anyone to do weaves in your hair. My answer is no. Possible candidates for styling your hair should be thoroughly research. I don't care how you do, but do it. LOL. There is a girl in my neighborhood who just got out of hair academy. She is young with an arm baby, so I wanted to patronize her. But I was still going to do my research. So, she is legitmately license. Ok. So, I started asking other people about her skills. Her best friend works with me at the little job that I am at. Well, I asked her about her friend's skills. The best friend told me that she would rather the girl just do her weaves and not her real hair because she do not believe this girl is "caring" enough about real hair. Now, I do not know what she meant by the statement, but it could have been nothing good. I am putting this stylist on the back burner for right now. I am not ready to lose any progress or get my hair torn out or whatever she meant by that comment. However, I just learned that my cousin is doing sew-ins. My cousin is one of those girls who are not licensed, but she has had several happy cousin. I believe that I am going to let her do them. Yes, I am going to take the risk. My cousin and I are extremely close, so I believe that I can talk to cousin about how I would appreciate TLC when working with my hair. I do not believe that it too much to ask for.

To hide my hair or to not hide my hair. I wrote a blog post earlier about how I am ready to reach APL and no longer predict goals. I would have loved to hide my hair for the rest of the year, but my parents would not care for the weave. I am leaving the weave a secret. I am planning to get a secret sew-in on November 1st and leave it in until December 1st. I am trying to get to APL by my December relaxer. I believe that hiding my hair will be the best thing for me. I really feel confident in hiding my hair for a month. Another thing, this will be my very first sew-in. So, what do you think: should I hide my hair or should I listen to my parents and do it the old fashion, hard way? I would love feedback!!!
