From a waist length hair I asked a hairdresser to cut my hair 2 inches above because I’m not really prepared to give up my hair. And finally, I took the courage after several days and several reasons of getting a real short haircut.
Some says behind a new short haircut is a girl who is a broken hearted. Hmmm? But definitely I’m not. The very reason I decided to have a short haircut is because I can’t really managed well my long hair. It was not so soft and straight as before. Every time I woke up in the morning my hair got frizzy. One sachet of shampoo was not enough and it really needed 2 to 3 sachets of conditioner too. And because of that I always took a bath for an hour to make it sure I rinsed off my hair very well.
When I’m in a rush going to work I find it hard to comb my hair quickly. Most of day if I don’t have a choice and if I don’t want to be late I just brush my hair inside a public transportation. There were also many hair fall every time I brush my hair. And from time to time I need to comb it if I don’t want my hair like a witch’s hair. These are the reason behind my new short haircut.
So last week, before the day of the Meet and Greet of Bing Castro I quickly browsed from Google the different short and medium hair styles. After I chose and saved two photos in my phone I rushed into a hair salon. Here was the photo (bob hairstyle) I showed to the hairdresser that I would like to achieve.
I’m not really satisfied with this because the hairdresser didn’t make the same haircut in the photo I showed to him. He said this is a layered haircut. However, I don’t regret it. Hair grows I just really have to take care of it again. By the way the haircut fee cost of only 30 pesos. Not bad haha! I was able to have a manicure and pedicure too! I will make another post about it.
Some of my friends and relatives didn’t like my new haircut and some said they liked it. Well for me I liked it more.
I felt I begun a new chapter in my life. It saves more time. Imagine jumping into the shower and getting out twice as fast. Drying time for my sweet new hairdo is cut in less than half. It dries faster. No strenuous combing out the tangles and long brushing sessions. As in effortless!
It saves my money on hair products. Less shampoo and conditioner is needed. It makes me look younger. It feels liberating. No more tangles, no danger of dreadlocks or witch look if I don’t brush it constantly. I feel my head becomes lighter.
Ladies if you are afraid of a very drastic change, then do it gradually, inch by inch. Perhaps start with a longer bob or layered shag style; a few weeks later have it cut to chin length. From there it is an easy step to get a trendy short crop or even a pixie cut. To find out how you will actually look without your long hair, try out some of the new software that allows you to upload a photo of yourself and test-wear several hairstyles.
If you’re in my situation, after considering all this, how many reasons can you find NOT to cut your hair?
