Second Day Hair Is The Best Hair | Natural Hair Comic

Why is it that 2nd day or 3rd day hair is always the best!? If only I could achieve this on first day hair. I have tight coils so my shrinkage is like 50%. I absolutely HATE shrinkage. And please do not tell me it's something I just need to accept as a naturalista. Like no I don't. Its been 10 years and still do not eff with shrinkage. That being said wash n' gos are a no go.

My twist outs can happen on wet or dry hair depending on how I'm feeling Sunday (aka wash day). If I want to achieve something close to 2nd hair then I'll blow my hair out prior to twisting because diffusing does not giving the look I want. 

I don't necessary dislike 1st day hair because sometimes it be looking real cute. But watching my hair expand I'm just like get it girl! Second or third day hair the ish because your hair starts stretching and volume is escalating. We WANT BIG ASS HAIR. WE WANT THOSE STARES. I want my hair as big as it can get. Its funny because when I wear my 1st day to work I always get asked if I cut my hair...<insert eyeroll and laugh emoji> 

Do you prefer 2nd or 3rd day hair?

I Dread Wash Day | Natural Hair Comic

I created this illustration back in 2014 and is probably what gravitated the natural hair community to my work on Instagram. It's always fun to re-create old artwork and see your growth.

 

Sunday Wash Day!

Why do all naturals designate Sundays as their wash day? Surely not all of us work Monday-Friday. I mean I do...but that's besides the point. Sunday is my most laziest day yet I will only wash my hair on that day. Also if I don't wash my hair by like 5pm on Sunday then I'm going another week without washing it. Call me the lazy naturalista baby.

I mean after a week my hair is usually stretched to perfection...why ruin it with washing it? Probably cause it stinks...BUT does it really!? That's why they invented essential oils aka TEA TREE OIL. I can't be the only lazy naturalista out here. Thank goodness for French twist aka Goddess Crown and puff hair do's😉

Casually Chic | OOTD 01

So back in the day I use to do outfit of the day illustrations. And lately I've been exploring Pinterest. I love taking an ootd (outfit of the day) layout and making it my own.

The gig is that I illustrate my own interpretation of these outfit of the day layouts. I will not always stick with the color scheme. These are fun to do an get the creative juices going. I also use to get my Facebook fans involved. Might bring that back.

I'd like to start a series of OOTD of natural haired girls and such. It's the same character in (3) different outfits found on Pinterest. I'm in love with the middle one💕 

I created some new curly hair brushes in Illustrator to create her hair. In the first two illustrations her hair is a little more kinky and I love it. Need to draw more tighter curls.

I’m a Magical Unicorn

Some nights I'm just too lazy to twist up my hair or even put in a two buns. Just slap my silk bonnet on and jump into bed. Then when I wake up and walk into the bathroom to be greeted by my magical unicorn greatness. So majestic. I love it! Means I'll be wearing my hair in two French twists. Moral of the story is do your damn hair 🙂 -Tawana
