The Hairs on My Head

I have noticed that since I have had short hair (I cut my hair in April) I have taken A LOT less pictures of myself. And I think the problem is that I am still pretty insecure with my hair. I mean, I think having short hair has been an awesome experience, don't get me wrong. However, I am ready to have longer hair, and more to work with.

Since I have cut my hair, I have really learned a lot about managing curls, such as how to use a diffuser and the fact that sulfates are horrible for curly hair. Right now I am trying an all-natural approach with my hair - washing with a baking soda mixture and conditioning with a apple cider vinegar mixture. I am really liking it so far. Since my hair is so fine, before when I would wash my hair, my hair would be super limp. I am pretty sure it has to do with the fact that sulfates strip hair of oils and the such - something my fine hair needs in order to have volume, But now that I am using baking soda, I don't have to worry about that. I can even go PRODUCT FREE! Yup, thats right. Today, all I put was one tinnnnnnnnny drop of leave in conditioner on my bangs, and that was all. Pretty exciting stuff!
But since I am growing my hair out, my hair is in a super duper funk. I have layers all over, a mullet in the back, and who knows what else is going on that the mirror hides from me! This has kinda put me in a hair funk, and made me not what to do much to my hair while I wait for it to grow out. So its like all of this lovely hair knowledge I have acquired is waiting to really be put to good use. Kind of a little frustrating. In the mean time, I will lust over Hannah McKay's hair (her real name is Yvonne Strahovski, and I think her hair is the perfect length).


  1. I think your hair looks cute! That's great it's been pretty easy to work with in terms of product though. My hair drives me nuts most of the time b/c it's so thick, it gets very hot and goes all over the place. LOL

    Nice to see you posting again! it's been awhile. Hope you had a great Christmas.


  2. you look cute mamiiii. i love your sweater. funny you talk about sulfates though cause i got some anti-frizz/idk what is for from loreal thats sulfate free i believe. and your short hair inspired me to cut mine too, but i think your due for long hair too. patience my child, it will grow.
