Those of you who knew me at the beginning of Spark People, remember me like this:
...With short hair!!!
Since I got Bell's Palsy (May 2010) I've been growing my hair out.
...and wear it curly a lot (my hair is naturally curly)
I NEVER used to scrunch my curls!
(I used a straightener DAILY when my hair was in the short bob!)
And this is what I had grown it to, up to last weekend...
I colored my hair (using a store-bought color) sometime last year and my hair was NEVER the same after that! I have SO MANY split ends that my hair is super frizzy all the time, and the curls seemed to require a lot of product to stay together and look good.
So, Andrea suggested that I go see her stylist. She does this reconstruction/smoothing treatment that apparently works wonders to make your hair manageable and smooth (It's a keratin treatment). So, this past Saturday, I booked an appointment with her.
Please note: I did NOT go to her for a hair CUT, I just wanted the treatment, and maybe a trim, if necessary. The whole purpose of the treatment was to see if my hair was "reconstructable" and hopefully save my hair from ultimately, the scissors. Well... Some hair dressers just DO their OWN THING!
(I must admit, my hair feels SUPER healthy and manageable, way better then ever, actually...) but OY... she severely BUTCHERED my hair!!! I have the worst layers EVER right now!!! AND it feels SO MUCH SHORTER too, even though I really didn't think she cut a lot of length off!
(It took me 2 years to grow my mane this long... my hair obviously grows slow, despite my protein rich diet. Boo HOO)
I have not taken a picture of it because I'm going back to see her this weekend again to have her fix it! (And really hope I don't end up leaving with a BOB! LOL) I seriously spent a small fortune on that reconstruction treatment... and to come out with a bad hair cut on top of the hefty price tag I paid for it all... is SO NOT COOL!
I really do hope she can fix it to my satisfaction!!!
Wish me luck!
Is this a long haired woman issue?
When my hair was short, I never felt this kind of emotional drama about a bad haircut! LOL
