30 Days, 30 Hair Accessories

I recently hosted a swap party with three of my friends (shout out to Jenny, Nthasi & Solo). I usually go through my clothes about twice a year to clear out anything I don’t wear anymore. This time, I was ruthless (thanks to Kendi of Kendi Everyday) and had strict conditions of things that can remain in my wardrobe. Anyways, in doing so, I also came across all of the accessories I have. I don’t seem to have an issue wearing all of the bangles, necklaces, earrings etc. I have…but I have seemed to ignore a lot of my hair accessories.

When I made the decision to go natural, I was so excited I went out and bought a whole bunch of hair clips, headbands and also began my obsession with hair flowers. I never originally intended to get so many, but now my hair flowers have their own accessories basket. I knew that with short hair, I’d need some help with a little hair decor. But then when I chopped and tried many of them, my hair was too short to use them. 🙁 So, many of them were left to look pretty on my lil vanity table to be forgotten about or hardly worn by Fro & I yet being joined by more and more new items along the way.

My basket of hair flowers


That’s 55 items, excluding the necessary black pins and clips. Oh no Aisha.
But I love them all, what to do?
So, being inspired again by the lovely Kendi, I decided to do a 30 for 30 remix, but the hair edition; 30 hair accessories over 30 days, minus was days. No repeats. This will be fun!

      Sigh, well they say the first step towards recovery is admitting you have a problem right? 😉
