It was time for a change. Leading up to my birthday I wanted to freshen up the ‘do. Doing something extreme with the cut is something I don’t have the guts for…yet. I’ve never steered away from color though!
Light. Really light. That was the plan. Once I got into the salon, plans changed. I got overwhelmed and after an hour of changing my mind back and forth and back again, I had made a decision! It was time to go back to black.
This is more of my natural color and it looks so much richer and healthier than before! See the frizz in the before photo? That’s due to ponytails! Ladies, do not use those ugly, constricting, hair ties because this is what will happen! Instead, I suggest using a Love-Me-Knot type hair tie. It won’t break your hair. Give your tresses a break and wear your hair down as often as possible. I’ve also heard that taking prenatal vitamins, especially Biotin, helps build healthy hair (and nails!) May I remind you I’m not a doctor. This was simply something I’ve heard.
Rarely do we see the back of our heads so when I saw this photo side-by-side, I was floored. I couldn’t believe how awful and unhealthy my hair looked before! We trimmed it up a bit and I’m completely content with the look now.
This is the last time I’ll be this dark for a while. I have every intention of going lighter and lighter throughout the spring and into summer. I’m even toying with the idea of a drastic cut but let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet! What hair trends are you hoping to try?
