Seasons of Change

So as I mentioned recently I've been thinking of going for the chop and today it actually happened :) I never thought I'd actually do it but this week I noticed how bad the condition of my hair was and thought about how nice and easy it would be to have shorter, healthier hair so I just went for it and I couldn't be happier! I also bought myself some Moroccan oil for it and that stuff is amaaaazing- makes it feel so smooth!

I do have to apologise for the poor quality of these pictures, they're taken on Jeremy's phone cause we only had film cameras with us at the time. Anyway I've had long hair for the last three and a bit years so this is a big change for me but I'm really happy :)

  7. Ooh, while I remember... When I was growing my hair (before realising how stupid I looked) I LOVED using H'suan wen hua to keep it from getting scraggy. If you can get your mitts on it, it's friggin gorgeous and really, really works. Perfect for brunettes :)

    Love,
    Hello, Sweetie

    p.s: I'm not a sneaky product plugger, I just love Lush!

  8. Oh, that's cute ... & I'm sure your hair feels so much healthier as a result. When you said you were getting it cut off I thought you were going to get a bob. This is not too dramatic at all. Lovely ...

  9. Ooh, does it feel so light and smooth now? I love that feeling after a haircut. It looks really good! And you still have enough length to style it if you want to :)

  10. Yay! I love it! This is the length I went for when I got my super long chopped off. About two or three weeks later I was getting it cut shorter. My hair is healthy and so much more manageable! <3

  20. Oh my gosh Oh my gosh! I love it. :)

    New hair cuts can be so much fun. I love that shinny/healthy/soft feeling. Plus it can be really cathartic. :)

  32. I keep wanting to do the same thing, but I can't bare to part with my long hair. It took so long to grow, you're really brave for cutting off so much! I've been meaning to try moroccon oil for myself, but have yet to get my hands on a bottle of the stuff. Where did you get yours?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love it! Sometimes cutting off some hair is the best thing. And yes to bangs as well. Glad to hear you are happy with the big change! xx

    ReplyDelete
  34. Haha I knew you would. Once you start thinking about it that's it. Looks lovely - I don't think there's any hairstyle that you would look terrible with anyways.
