Let’s Talk Hair

So let’s talk about hair. Toward the middle of summer I got my hair cut. I had hair down to my waist and I got it cut right above my shoulders. Honestly when I went in all I knew was that I wanted it above my shoulders because my hair getting caught under my purse straps was getting very annoying and I also knew I wanted straight across bangs.

I know there are lots of people that are scared by places like this but I’ve had pretty good luck with them and where I live there aren’t many other options. I was a bit nervous this time because I didn’t know exactly what I wanted but I left with a haircut that I really loved. Don’t ask me to much about the haircut because all I know is that it was just above my shoulders, had straight across bangs, had some layers, and that she thinned it a bit in the back because my hair is super thick there. I really love having shorter hair and grew more and more confident as more people started comparing the hair to Taylor Swift’s cut. Really though, if you’re thinking about getting your hair cut just do it. It feels better, doesn’t get caught on everything, uses less product, and if you don’t like it you can just wait for it to grow out again.

I’ve been using the Dove Intensive Repair shampoo and the Dove Revival Shampoo. Both are pretty budget friendly and both work great with my hair. Out of the two I have to say that I like the Intensive Repair better as it keeps my hair clean for longer and makes it softer. Both smell great and both make my hair look great. I already did a review on the conditioner/hair mask I use and I’m still using the same thing.

Recently I’ve been using heat on my hair more often. I already have very straight hair but I like to use a straightener on my shorter hair to make it all go the right way and make it so the ends don’t stick out at weird angles. I’ve been using the TRESemme Heat Tamer spray and I really think it helps to protect my hair and helps my hair hold whatever style. I don’t feel like my hair is getting damaged and the product smells good as well.

I don’t really use much product in my hair. What do you guys use in your hair? I could always use some great new products to try out. If you’ve gotten your hair cut recently let me know how you like it. I hope your week is going great, you’re halfway there. Have an amazing Wednesday and I’ll see you again on Friday.

Random Wednesday #2

Okay I really need to come up with a better name for Wednesdays, Random Wednesday just isn’t cutting it for me. It’s been a long week for me, I haven’t been sleeping well. Hopefully this second half of the week will go better and I’ll get some more sleep. I’ll post like usual and do an update during the weekend to let you all know what I have planned and such.

Liked it a lot better this length. Sorry for the messy hair and lack of makeup.

Bad lighting but this was it. Don’t really like the cut looking back though.

Do you ever want to just chop off your hair? I have hair probably down to my elbows and it’s really getting to the point where I just want it all gone. Originally I had kind of challenged myself to see how long I could get it (I’m so competitive and stubborn that I compete with myself) and once it started to get this long I told myself I would at least wait until the summer but now I just want it gone. But then, of course, I remember that if I do that I can’t braid it and stuff so I’m stuck (also not so great at making decisions).

And the start of the fringe. Still liked the length. Also had it strawberry blonde, only time I’ve colored it.

And bangs again but with long hair.

The last time I cut my hair was the end of 2013 and that was just cutting my bangs. The last time I really cut it was mid 2012 and I had it really short then, like chin length. I really like growing it out long and then getting it cut really short. By the time it gets really long I’m pretty ready for a change and I also get to donate it most of the time. Right now it’s just kind of annoying. I hardly ever wear it down (it’s almost always in a ponytail or braid) and when I do wear it down it’s so hair to keep it looking nice. My hair likes to all hang out together so it looks messy pretty quickly (it’s not tangled really it’s just messy if that makes sense) and my hair is pretty flat and extremely straight so I can’t get it to do much for very long.


I haven’t decided yet when I’ll get it cut but it will probably be soon. Maybe I’ll do a haircut update on a Wednesday sometime when I finally get it done. What short haircuts do you guys like? I like some of the pixi cuts but I’m probably too scared to do it and don’t want to deal with growing it out. I also like the blunt kind of bob looks. Let me know what you guys think, I can always use ideas. Hope your week is going great and that you’re getting more sleep than I am. Have a stupendous day and I’ll see you tomorrow. 🙂
