What to do with 5 inches of hair

AstoniedAstonied Posts: 26Registered Users
My hair is 5 inches and I'm bored with it. I got tired of wearing wash and go's so I wore wigs. Now I'm tired of wearing wigs. Is it too short for a decent looking twist out? Are there any other styles I can do with 5 inches of hair? I just can't wait till the day I realize my hair can finally reach my shoulders.

    honey i understand your frustration i have been there:sad5:.

    I suggest you create a fotki account there are plethora profile full of naturals from different stages of their journey sharing pic and tips on products,styles,and more:hello1:. I found that site very useful when i was a new natural. may i also suggest doing braid extension or full weave PS these styles put the hair away for a while, you get a break and when its time to take it down not only are you excited to see your hair, you are interested to see the progress:toothy7:.

    here are a few pic of my hair when it was your length and to answer your question twist outs is possible:D
