Christmas blowout and my second big chop

Hey y’all! Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!! How’d you ring it in? I had an amazing night with just family, it was perfect. Went to the waterfront Downtown Kingston and watched the fireworks, though munchkin was terrified of them! We went home after and put munchkin to bed, enjoying our own private backyard party courtesy of a shindig nearby that had some good music and fireworks as well!

But enough of that, let’s talk hair! I was so excited to get a blowout and a trim over the Christmas holidays cause I knew I had some serious length going on so I’d have a cute bob if I blew it out. I also knew I was about to lose a lot of my precious length because my hair was very uneven since I big chopped and have been trimming it myself, so I made up my mind to just go get it professionally cut and start all over. This was not an easy decision, you know how bored I’ve been with the shorter lengths, but a good cut sets the foundation for a good ‘fro shape as it grows out so I went ahead. It’s just hair, it grows back and once it grows I’ll have lots of time to play around with it, I decided to enjoy this time of ease and quick drying!

My hair all blown out and ready for the snippage. This last DIY colour job also damaged some of my old, tired ends, I won’t lie. And so I needed this cut. But I am so happy with my new strawberry blonde colour that I was willing to let go some length for it. Ready for the big reveal???

Straight fire! I am so in love with the back, right? My aunt said I looked like Lady Gaga…gag, but ok lol. If you look at the second pic, you can see where the cut was extremely asymmetrical.  The top was way much longer than the sides and this wouldn’t fare well when it went back curly, which happened the same damn night. Went to a party that got lots of rain, but we were enjoying ourselves too much to move. Sigh. I absolutely love the mix of red and blonde though. I snipped off the damaged ends that were too long and I think I have a great shape now, what say you?

I’m trying to behave myself and stay away from bleaching it for another 6 months at least. I can’t promise that I won’t slip a little pink/purple rinse through it again though, that was my fave! Are you feeling the cut?

  1. First, loved the blow out and the great shape. But, second girl, leave that color alone! Okay, awright, you can get a rinse — but one — and dats it! LOL! Your hair is great both ways — straight and curly. I need to do something with this thing on my head myself. Me a mongrel of the worst kind — this hair is a challenge, and I thought it would have been easier once I, too, did a big chop 7 years ago. Truth be told, I should have kept my hair long. At least I’d have some versatility. Dis fro is dull, rough and not cute. That. is. all.

    1. i cant be dishing out all this good info and u over there wid bush on u head no maam please get some aloe juice and get to work :p
