I kinda want to trim my bangs. They’ve grown out a lot since last year, and they’re starting to bug me.
But the thing is, I like my hair that way. Last year, I cut my hair short; shorter than shoulder level, and ended up looking like a pom pom with a face. (In case you’re wondering, I have curly African hair which is tricky because it shrinks and appears shorter than it is. Ah, the struggle.)
Anyway, I’ve always wanted to grow my hair out more than I usually do, and it’s grown pretty fast because I’ve been following a hair treatment schedule, and it’s working out perfectly. I want to layer my hair, sort of like this:
This is not me, but it’s similar to my hair type, almost the same colour, too, but without the lowlights. My hair is a bit shorter with a bit less volume, but I’m getting there. I kinda want to make it lighter in colour. I want to use chammomile spray, which works beautifully, but it’s winter, and I need to bathe in the sun for a while. Guess that’ll have to wait.
I used to get teased for my hair alot; people used to throw pens and watch how they stick in there, and it made me very insecure about myself. I’ve learned to love myself and my hair, to embrace the way I am and not give a damn what people thought, and I think everyone should do that because it’s very liberating, trust me.
So if you’re upset about what people tell you or how they judge you, make sure you decide better than to listen to any of them. You’re better off being confident than waiting for others to tell you to do so.
