A few months back I got rather fed up of my hair, and by rather I mean a hella lot of fed up-ness was going on. I’ve always had long hair, ever since the incident when someone cut it into a bob and didn’t take into account the fact my hair is curly – oh hello spaniel ears style hair. That was not a good look in my teens. Since then my hair has pretty much always been a few inches off the base of my back; not even 22 inch hair extensions were long enough to ever use in my hair. However I neglected my hair over the last couple of years; I bleached it, crazy coloured the ends, didn’t brush it for days on end then spent hours dragging a brush through it. I was basically a proper witch to my hair.
Then last year my hair started to fall out pretty badly, so my long, thick and beautiful hair was now thin, sparse and split to high heaven. Oh, and did I mention where the tufts of hair did grow back it was now growing in grey? Yeah, I was having a great ol’ time of it. Dreaming of a hair transplant was my escape; wishing my lovely healthy locks back. Luckily for me that wasn’t my only option.
Stopped Drying my Hair. I would only dry it a few times a month anyways, but now I have totally stopped. I’ll probably use my hairdryer on it for special occasions when I’m going out out, but other than that I leave it to dry naturally and embrace my frizziness.
Started Using Hair Oils Properly. I used hair oils previously, but never to their full potential. So, I’ve started drenching my hair in an oil once every 7-10 days and leaving it on for a fair few hours – that way my hair is getting a super moisturising treatment.
Stopped Forgetting to Brush It. OK, I still forget sometimes, but I don’t go 7 days like I used to before. I’d end up with a rats nest of hair after a few days which would cause so much damage trying to get out. Now I try to brush it at least every other day to try stop the matts.
