Talk about it
Find someone who understands what you might be going through and talk to them. You could go to the hubster but honestly bless their hearts, men may not get it as much as another sister in the natural game.
Find your person and just tell them, you might get a suggestion or some encouragement that might just do it for you.
As much as we argue and fight, this community is really an awesome one, we bicker like family but when it comes time for us to go HAM for each other we show up.
We built this city, and when you feel depressed come home to the girls because you are safe there. I never stopped reading, writing, interacting on Facebook or looking at inspiration on Instagram or Pinterest.
Being ‘social’ helped me not to go all the way AWOL and totally neglect my hair. Social media has its evils, and sometimes we need to unplug, but it is nice to know we can just plug in again when we need a boost.
Change your regimen as your hair grows
What does this have to do with depression you ask? Well, long hair isn’t as easy as it looks and as your hair grows you will have to tweak some things because it can get overwhelming without a good plan. When you get overwhelmed it is easy to just say to hell with it all and just sink into a deep dark funk. Long hair can get hot, annoying as it falls everywhere, attaches to things and Lord please don’t let that joint get dry and tangled. How do you spell nightmare!?
Instead of getting frustrated and ignoring the mop, you have to figure this thing out, you don’t have to change everything about your regimen, but you might need to accommodate more hair by paying more attention to your sections, sealing your ends more, protecting your hair. Basically everything you already do but just with more attention to detail.
