Just cut it.
Sounds simple, but sometimes it’s so hard to get rid of something that is so attached to you. Such as, your hair.
I don’t know why I’ve always felt like I need to have long hair. Like, I’ve actually felt ugly and insecure if it was short. Maybe it has something to do with the two times I’ve cut my hair super short and immediately regretted it. Like, I’ve done it without giving it much of a thought. Which, though, sounds like a typical Charlotta.
But a while back I got to the conclusion that my hair was just not doing me any favors. Cutting my hair much shorter was something I actually had thought about for a longer time – even though the decision happened quickly (like, do you know the feeling when you just need something to happen NOW?). You know I’m all about those natural curls, but my hair was so long and the ends were so damaged, they hardly managed to curl at all.
So I guess I did it for the curls.
And I have no regrets! I love my shorter hair. Which is still long. It’s like short long hair. Or long short hair. Or a long bob? Be it whatever – it curls so much better now and actually that’s what’s making it appear shorter than it is. My hair can now lift itself up.
And I feel quite lifted as well. Making a change to your hair is quite a powerful thing to do, as superficial as it sounds. I am so happy I made the big cut. I feel quite relieved. I don’t need my hair to be long – I just want it to appear healthy and nice.
In these photos you see my hair in it’s natural state – there are no curl creams whatsoever used. Susanna just washed my hair and used some moisturizing curl cream and a light oil. Then she diffused my hair and let it live it’s best life. She even used a sulfate-free shampoo, because she knows how I am. So if you have naturally curly hair and are thinking of going to a hairdresser – I can warmly recommend Susanna.
Thank you Susanna for once again taking care of my hair!
