Well this is a loooooooooooooooooooooong over-due post.
As mentioned in previous posts, such as here, my hair journey in the past couple of months had fried my hair. Like, beyond repair fried.
I'm not going to go into detail of it again as the thought of it makes me teary and hate life. So after my hair started to snap off, I realised it was only a matter of time before I had to cut it all off. Just over a month ago that time came. Around a half of my hair had already snapped off, around 4/5 inches, so I booked an appointment, got a Groupon, at Adee Phelan in Birmingham and went to get my hair hacked off.
I had to put on a brave face, but inside I was dying. I'd gone through my bob length hair phase and wasn't one I wanted to revisit. Alas. What's done is done.
I didn't ask for a particular hair style, just asked the stylist to cut it to a length where the snapped bits would blend in.
My hair overall is a hell of a lot healthier and I'm not terrified to run a brush through it anymore. It doesn't take as much time to wash, dye, dry, style, but I also can't do as much with it .. such as a bun! I can't put my hair into a bun. THE HORROR! So just waiting for my bob to become a lob, and I'll be happier.
Enjoy some pictures, and let me know what you think!
Joking about the hair cut in the magazine
It's so very 90's. And I don't really like it straight! It looks weird.
So I keep it wavy/curly. Just depending on how it works out on the day. I use my GHD straighteners to create the waves as my curlers don't really work well, and don't give me the curls that I want. So pulling my straighteners through is just what I needs. I don't do much to the back just because that's the shortest and most damaged bit, which still actually snaps off when pulling too much.
Here are some more pics .. In chronological order!
