I have a confession to make!! I done gone and chopped off all my hair again! I know I know, the blog is called my LONG hair journey and I don’t seem to be able to let my hair do that. I have a good reason though, remember the post partum shedding and the resulting hair loss around my hairline. Here let me remind you.
Well it was driving me nuts. I was spending too much time feeling self-conscious about it and trying to hide it and time is something I just don’t have a lot of at the moment. I really want to enjoy my life and it’s far too short to spend it worrying about hair…so I decided to start again. The edges were never going to catch up to the rest of my hair so I would have had to cut it at some point, now seemed the easiest option. Because the shedding was caused by my pregnancy, I’ve decided to keep my hair short until I’m done having kids, otherwise I’ll just be back here again in a few years!
I’ve chosen to use this as an opportunity to experiment with my hair. I plan to have a LOT of fun with different cuts and of course colour. I love colouring my hair and now that length isn’t an issue I can really push the envelope. I decided to start by going blonde. The process has begun but it will take a few more sessions to get it to the level I really want.
Andree Marie did the cut and colour, she’s a brilliant stylist and one of the few people I trust with my hair. I did of course film the whole thing, which will be released shortly, but I have a small surprise planned so stay tuned for that.
