BEAUTY | I Am Not My Hair.

Thursday, 21 June 2012

Hello!

So, about two days ago, I awoke with an urge for a massive change. I'd finished washing my hair and I could feel the damage constantly bleaching it had done, my once perfectly curly kinky hair seemed fried and lifeless, plus I was getting bored of the colour and the lenght, I think when your hair is long and is the texture mine is, you get pretty sick of having to constantly detangle it etc... Sooo, I grabbed a pair of scissors and hacked off all the colour. Et Voila I now have an adorable Teeny Weeny Afro a la Solange Knowles.
My family and friends have been on my case day in and day out as i've always been known as 'That girl with the big hair' but I was getting so bored of it, I was holding onto length and unhealthy hair because other people loved it, not me. 
In the words of the wonderful India Arie, "I am not my hair, I am not this skin, I am not your expectations no, I am not my hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within"

Has anyone else done any major image changes this summer? Let me know! 

Also, I will do a review on the items I'm wearing soon! They're from Romwe!

  8. Very cute! I did the big chop two years ago and had about an inch of hair. Now it has grown out and I am texlaxing. A new change would be awesome but I am wanting to see how long it can get. Beautiful hair.

  34. I love this hairstyle, and with that shirt and red lipstick, just perfect.
    Over the years I haven't really done anything to my hair so just recently I dip dyed my hair and got the bangs,
    which changed my image quite a bit :)
