Why She Gave Up Laying Her Edges

The thing is, my hair texture doesn’t allow me to be great. One thought of precipitation and I am finished. Because of that, I’ve decided I’m no longer buying into the hype of laid edges. Ya’ll gonna take these semi-curly, mostly nappy edges and keep it pushin’.

Marsha B. said “Listen, I’m just glad my edges are still intact.” Laying your edges is trendy but used to be considered urban or ghetto. Once it was adopted by other races and celebs like Kim Kardashian, it became the acceptable.

Marsha writes that her stylist usually finishes it off her hair by gelling down her edges in a way that only a stylist can do. But as for doing it herself, “I’m just about tired of having this extra, somewhat unnecessary step to completing my hair style.” (Source HelloBeautiful)

What about you? Keeping up with the edges or nah?

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
