At the start of the week, I styled my hair in soft waves and let it lean to the right per my usual hair swag. I was a bit nervous about it at first but excited that it turned out so well as I hadn't used this method of styling since my haircut. I have to admit I was really feeling my hair. That was...until Tuesday when it rained. The dew points were so low that day that even my hands felt moist the instant I set foot outside. Even the most moisturized natural hair won't stand a chance against that. The damp and rainy weather transformed my wavy, funky coif into a wiggly side-poof of some sort.
A mess I tell ya!
I apologize for the low quality but I took these pics as I was on the go with my iPhone and the lighting situations weren't the best.
Unfortunately, that same day I'd also switched purses and didn't bother to transfer my "emergency stash" of bobby pins to my new purse of the moment. That's the trouble with having natural hair on a rainy day and not being prepared. But a few huffs and puffs and eye rolls later, I decided I'd wear my poofy hair proudly until I made it home. Luckily, while I was out and about I didn't get any odd stares (that I'd noticed anyway).
When I returned home, I was able to revive it a little without going through the whole process of restyling. This is how it looked the next day (Wednesday). Not my ultimate best but I could definitely deal with it alot more than the "rainy day" natural hair mess. I wore a straight up mohawk through end of the week.
