I have decided to share a year of hair transformation just to try to express my happiness and sorrows through this emotionally stressful experience. As easy and tempting as it may be; we all get this feeling of regret especially after a hair cut…
It usually takes you up by surprise, it takes you so high but then slaps you down two days later.
Here is how my transformation went and what I eventually learned out of it.
It all started when I got so bored of my usual look; long black hair, I have had this look since I was a kid so I thought to myself how about we shake things a little and take it up a notch especially that the straight hair doesn’t really suit me and I fell in love with my waves on long hair but then I thought why don’t I change my hair color; went all crazy with ombre .
It wasn’t easy it took the salon 10 days to be able to fix my hair to the lightest shade they could; my hair was bleached to death then 5 hours later dyed to chocolate brown so they can just be able to lift the color and as I said earlier I loved it for two days until it turned my beautiful precious hair orange I was shocked and very disappointed here is how it looked.
Eventually I finally got the look that made me fall in and out of love with myself; as gorgeous as it looked, naturally like any normal human being I thought it would be okay to wash my hair and it all went downhill from there, my so very orange struggle came back right after one single wash at home. I had to make a choice dye it to maintain the look I loved for a day or two; or try to save what’s left of my beautiful hair…I can honestly tell you not to think about it if you’re not willing to take the risk and deal with all the damage of split ends, weak dry roots and endless trips and money spent on salons.
I hated my life and the thought of hair dressers( I used to fix it everytime I travel to turkey and waste a whole day at the salon instead of being out with my friends enjoying a good day or just shopping)
I decided to go back to my oringinal color BUT I still had a this feeling or need of change and because I knew I had to cut my hair short to retrive what’s left of it; I went a little crazy and the result was BLUE
Gorgeous and loved it but the blue hair had to go.
I chopped half my hair after this nice but terrible attempt of change; I started changing my looks, tried straight hair but didn’t suit me so I tried loose curls and it actually looks amazing with short hair( obviously not natural curls because they attract frizz)
