It’s almost 2 month ago since I cut my hair from long to very short. I haven’t put any proper photos on Instagram so far about my hair cut. Today is the day that I will show some more proper photos of my new haircut. Also I’m going to tell why I decided to go for short hair and things I’m doing different with my hair now it’s shorter.
Short Hair Don’t Care
Lately I was a bit done with my hair how it was. It looked so sleek and lifeless except when I curled it but I’m not curling my hair every day. So most of the days I didn’t liked it how it looked. It was also very dead and the ends of my hair wear very thin and broken. There had to be cut of a big amount anyway. I wanted to do something completely different with my hair. To have a different look and to get rid of my damaged hair.
I’m glad I did it as I really like it and it gives my hair a chance to grow healthy again as I do want it longer one day but for now I like it how it is.
Different Hair Care
Now my hair is short and not damaged anymore I want to do things different with my haircare routine. I used to straighten or curl my hair very often, dye it since I was 15 every 8 weeks or so. You can imagine that all this isn’t good for your hair.
With this hair cut I can actually bin my hair straighteners and curlers as I don’t need to style my hair using them. I’m very pleased about as I won’t damage my hair with those heating products. When my hair is longer again I will use them again but I’ll try to use them not as often anymore to safe my hair.
I also decided not to dye my hair anymore, well not for now anyway in the future I will do it again or only some highlights. The same reason I’m doing this is to let my hair grow back more healthy.
I also look after my hair better then I did before. Twice a week I have a hair mask. Normally I did this only every 3 month or so. Once a week I have a DIY leave in hair mask. Before I go to bed I put coconut oil all over my hair and go to sleep with it so it can soak in properly and in the morning I will wash my hair like normal. The other hair mask I use is a 5 minute hair mask from Garnier which I use after washing my hair.
Currently I’m using all the hair products from Garnier. I use the Honey Treasures Ultimate Blends, strength restorer. So far I really like those products from Garnier and would highly recommend them.
Do I regret cutting my hair?
Funny enough when I cut my hair from long to a bob I always regretted it straight away and wanted it to be long as soon as possible. This time I don’t regret it at all. I was expecting that I would miss the feeling of my long hair at the back of my neck but it’s the other way round it feels amazing to me. Sometimes I do miss my longer hair, making beautiful curls in my hair or just do a bit more with it then I can do now.
There are also some down sides of a short haircut. When I have a bad hair day I can’t fix it with putting my hair in a bun or plat because it’s too short. So I have to walk round with bad hair all day now. No that’s not true ,I have some tricks how to fix my bad hair days, putting my hair back with bobby pins for example.
All together I’m very happy with my new haircut and I’m glad I did it. What do you think of my new hair? Let me know in a comment.
