So here I am, sitting in isolation twirling my hair so much it feels like it wants to fall off. Call for help! … And yes that is me in the photo years ago trying to rock a mullet. Since then, I’ve learnt never to trust a mother of eight, with scissors EVER AGAIN!!!
So, it dawned on me that I’ve been using the same products for years and I need to switch it up! I know using the same hair products for a while isn’t the greatest as your hair can just get used to it a bit too much. I’ve become way to comfortable being ‘safe’ with my hair and not venturing out. Well I’m slamming on the brakes (literally, I’m a learner driver currently)…
Time for change! My hair is feeling more dry than usual and brittle. Obviously I know that’s probably mostly to do with my alopecia, but that doesn’t mean I can’t try out different products to see if it makes my hair feel and look more luxurious! I had a lightbulb moment and realised, I give my skin so much TLC (I’ve been in a boxing match with acne for the past few months – I’ll fill you in on why and what’s helped very soon) but I literally neglect my hair unless I’m going out. And that’s such a big no no, I basically had to look in the mirror and slap myself out of it!
How can I expect to have luxurious hair like they do in the hair adverts, if I only care for it here and there. Literally only when I go out. Now that I’ve been staying in, my hair’s basically been screaming for attention! Let’s show our hair it may be dead, but we won’t cremate it just yet. Who’s with me?!
Hello? “Can anybody here me?!” *in Leonardo DiCaprio’s voice*. If you’re a die hard fan of the movie Titanic like me, then you’ll get the joke.
Anyways, when I stay in I don’t really add anything to my hair apart from shampoo and condition it. And I know how that’s a huge mistake but there are so many options out there for haircare, I wouldn’t know where to begin! I also don’t want to be adding lots of potent ingredients into my hair routine as that never helps anyone in the long run! It can make your hair look nice for short-term relief but I want it to be beneficiary for my hair in the long run. Then when I look online, I don’t know if I’m getting biased reviews or not. One person says it’s amazing, another’s saying it’s making their hair fall out. Ahhhh I just want to have healthy, luscious locks and all that good stuff… Am I asking for too much?
So help a girl in need, as if my hair had legs, it would walk away from my scalp right now and be like “I don’t know her!”. If you initially read that as hairy legs, you’re with the rest of us. Reading that wrong I mean, I’m not saying I have….. You know what, I’m losing this battle. Quarantine has caught up with me, I’m sure we’re all in the same boat, especially us females. If we have our hair dyed regularly at the salon to hide any greys; well that ship has well and truly sailed. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do our own at-home treatments!
I don’t dye my hair, but you get the coming together ambition I had writing that. Comment below your hair care treatments that work for you – like shampoo, conditioner and any other hair products you add to style/maintain your locks. As you don’t wanna see me looking like this next time I post, but trust me I’m already halfway there!
