" Fashion is to stand out not to fit in "
I went to the hairdressers yesterday and finally had the courage to chop off my long locks. I took before and after pictures and my god what a difference!
Yes my hair was this long before believe it or not. It went over my bum covering it completely. Not that my hair is naturally curly. This was only because I had braids in my hair, the day before, so my hair was extremely curly the next day. This does make my hair look shorter because of the curls though but I think you kind of get the idea of how long my hair actually was.
The curls in my hair show a real big difference. Don’t you think? Even my sister said that I look more mature with straightened hair which I never intend to do as it takes forever. My hair was both thick and long, making it not that easy for me to straighten my hair, in just a few minutes. It still isn’t that easy for me but at least it is way quicker now. I actually like the idea of straightened hair and might even start to try it out.
Look at my hair at the picture above. It is hard to think that I had all of that hair. It just suddenly feels like it was never there. The weight that has been lifted off my shoulders feels absolutely amazing. Even yesterday when I washed my hair. Instead of spending about 20 min only washing and conditioning my hair, I only spend about 10-5 min which felt so incredible.
Doesn’t this look so much nicer and matured. Yes I loved my long hair but now that that weight has been lifted off my shoulders it feels so much better.
I have mentioned before that I am a Sikh and therefore cutting your hair isn’t allowed in our religion. I am not saying that I am not a strong believer because I am . It is such a beautiful religion. I know that I am not the perfect Sikh just yet but I do know that I will be some day. ‘Sikh’ even means to learn. Being a Sikh is to learn form your mistakes and then correcting them. I think this is what made me stop to cut my hair however after a very long discussion with my mum she convinced me.
She said to me before becoming a Sikh or converting to any other religion first become a good human being which was exactly what our 1st Guruji said. Now I am not going to write a whole essay on how to do this but I think you get the point.
Also after I came back from the salon, I realised that I cut about 1 foot off my hair which is quite hard to think and for me to realise, how long my hair actually was. I had my hair layered and feathered because that way my hair would have been even lighter. The hairdresser used a range of different products on my hair. The shampoo that she used smelled incredible although asking her the name of it, I don’t remember what it was called now. Then she went on to use a syrum and some heatprotection from Moroccon Oil to blow dry and starighten my hair with a Cloud 9 hair starightner. Altoghter it must have taken her about 45 min which for me went really quick.
By the way the last time that I cut my hair off was about a year ago as I don’t like cutting my hair.
When did you last change of hairstyle?
