I don’t know if I like the fact that I cut my long locks off today. I wish I wouldn’t have been late to the appointment and had time to had gone home from my boyfriends house and get the picture that I wanted to show to the hairstylist. If only I had time to go home and get the picture I had saved on my iPad that I wanted to show her then I feel like my hairstyle would’ve ended up a little bit longer and a little bit more precise than what I asked for.
I’m starting to realize that this running late thing is really getting me into trouble. I have to start being more aware of my time consumption. I spend a lot of time procrastinating and getting ready to do things. It takes me at least an hour in the morning to get ready, which mostly consists of washing and drying my hair. Due to my running late and my not being able to bring in the picture of how I wanted my haircut I am not completely satisfied with my hairstyle. But I don’t know for sure if it would’ve helped if I brought the picture in, I know I would’ve at least not had my hair cut so darn short.
My hair was very long before and now it’s about 8 to 9 inches shorter. I wanted it cut at an angle with it shorter in the back and longer in the front as I explained in a previous post. I had it all planned out. And I had the picture in my head but it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. Yet that is often the case when I change my hair dramatically. It never seems to come out the way you want it to. Maybe it will get better as it grows out a little longer.
My hair is so long right now it probably reaches all the way down to the middle of my back. When you have hair as long as I do it takes a lot of product to upkeep it, like shampoo, conditioner and shiner. I use a lot of conditioner to make sure my hair is tangle free and then I always run out of conditioner before I run out of my shampoo bottle. Then I use the shiner to make my hair lay flat and look shiny, even though it is already straight and shiny I want to have every hair in place and laying straight down flat because it gets dry and frizzy from blow drying.
Ugh, and then there’s the blow drying. I hate blow drying my hair as it can take as long as half an hour to get completely dry. To the point where my arm gets sore from holding the blow dryer for so long and having to turn my head upside down so that I can get that nice “blow out” effect. Yes having long hair is a pain in the ass and if I really want to spruce it up I will take out the hair straightener and straighten my hair to, but that really burns it and dries the hair out.
If I could, today I would go get my haircut and get like 5 to 8 inches cut off of it. With it cut at an angle. The back being shorter than the front kind of like a longer version of Posh Spice’s hairstyle. I love how she has her hair in a bob with the front longer than the back but I’m not ready to go for a full bob yet. I’m scared to cut off all my long beautiful hair. My boyfriend says he likes my hair long and I’m Native American and take pride in having long, dark, sleek hair.
Once I get it cut I feel like I will have more confidence and feel more proud to show off my hair without wanting to wear beanies and hats all the time. Because sometimes I’m just to lazy to wash my hair. I usually only wash it every other day, because it takes so much time and energy to wash it. Not to mention I do not want to continually fry it by blow drying and straightening it everyday.
So hopefully today or tomorrow I will get my haircut. I would love to get it dyed as well but I do not have the money to do that right now as that costs $130 each time, just for highlights. So wish me luck on my new hairstyle as this one will be one I have never gotten before.
