I’m sitting in my car waiting for my girl to show up for our date and she’s running late 🙄 typical. So I figured I’d share a little story with you all… here we go.
So no one told you life was gonna be this way.. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
It’s true. I wanted to rock the Rachel Green layered bob look after watching the series beginning to end for about the 5th time.
I got this
It wasn’t that bad but it was hard as hell to handle. It was dry, knotted – even though it was so short- it flipped this way and that, and it only looked good if it was a mess… which I hated because I’m one to constantly brush my hair. It took a lot of getting used to.
It was a blessing!! It still is a blessing Because I cut my hair so short and it only looked good it a natural messy state, I was able to turn the condition of my hair around within a couple of months.
This is how..
1. The hardest part and I’m proud of it! I completely stopped using heated products. No flat iron, curling iron, not even my blow dryer. I mean for my cousins wedding last month, I used my flat iron but that was the first time in 4-5 months! It was very hard at first because I was so used to waking up and getting ready; which included straightening my hair everyday. I completely knocked that off the charts!
2.Coconut oil.. DA GREASER So coconut oil has so many benefits. Number one being it is natural! Yaaayy!!! It’s full of vitamins K&E and because it’s so greasy and moisturizing, it does wonders to your scalp and even helps with dandruff!
3. My hair drops, when I brush it after a shower I could make a wig My hair is so prone to dropping. I shower, it drops, I towel dry, it drops, I brush it and it’s painful, tangled and guess what?! It drops. So I started actually deep conditioning when I wash my hair. I leave my conditioner in for as long as possible. It’s the last thing I rinse out and lemme tell you, SOOO MUCH EASIER TO BRUSH!
4. I’m officially hair colour blind GUYS I NEVER LISTENED TO ANYONE IN ALL MY LIFE ABOUT COLOURING MY HAIR The amount of damage from constantly colouring my hair was unbelievable and honestly was one of the main reasons that my hair could’ve been used to scrub a pot. It was that coarse and dry.
Okay guys guess what?!
That’s my cue guys I hope you enjoyed my little story on how I survived my Rachel Green look and how it actually benefited the life of my pili.
Ps. Pili means hair.
