Protective Style + Hair Update

Hey Guys!

I’ve really been delaying this post for quite some time. Truth is, I’ve just been lazy and not in the mood to write. However, I’m forcing myself to get it done because “discipline“.

Growing up my natural hair was extremely hard to maintain, so my mom decided that for the beginning of high school I was going to get my hair straightened. This made it easier on her as I could now comb and be in control of my own hair.
