My Hair-story

I am tired, sick sick and tired of my hair.

I don’t need to preach to you guys about how important hair is to a woman, it’s her crowning glory!

I actually once liked my hair; twice in my life this happened. Once when I was 14 and my long locks were  silky waves, sunkissed by the Puerto Rican skies. I believe hair dressers call it Virgin hair, then I discovered bleach….and then only 12 months ago until it all went wrong and the hair gods decided to turn their wroth onto me.

Hair timeline

2005 – Virgin hair, enough said.

No Photos – being tagged in pictures was but a seed of an idea

2006 – TOTAL WASH OUT

Gwen Stefani is a huge influence on me – I bleach my hair white. I thought it was a good look but in hindsight it really didn’t suit me and made my already rosey skin pinker. Only a good look if you don’t mind wearing foundation everyday.

2007 – A TOXIC RELATIONSHIP

I discover extensions. My already bleached and dried out hair is breaking and won’t grow. I get bonded extensions to thicken up my highlighted hair. The result is fabulous and sexy, unfortunately I had embarked on a toxic relationship with my extensionist.

2008 – A VICIOUS CYCLE

I got to uni. Already addicted to the fullness and length that extensions gives me I’m on about my 6th round. I take them out I put them back in.

2009 – FASHION STUDENT CHIC

Alice Delall is seriously cool right now so shaving the side of my head seems like a pretty cool idea. This look I really loved but didn’t really work unless I had the long flowing tresses of a weave to pad out my mane.

2010 – BOB’S YER UNCLE

Enough is enough. I have a small tuft growing out the left side of my head and the rest of my hair is ruined due to repetitive weaves. I get a bob. Not just any bob though, Chloe Mortiz cover look on LOVE magazine inspired this look. I really loved it as well but this was at a time when long tresses were trending everywhere. it wasn’t long before the bleach made a come back as well.

2012 – HAPPY HAIR DAYS ARE HERE

Almost 2 years later, 5 empty bottles of supplements and frequent trims I have “dream hair”! My mane is all one length, a lovely bright blonde, its bouncy, healthy and I’m feeling good. I’m even experimenting with a kind, temporary crazy colours like lilac and blue.

2013 – WTF

My hair is falling out. Why? Why is this happening? Clumps in the shower, strands hanging off my finger tips, my hair brush needs purging everyday of what looks like a full toupee. 6 months pass and it shows no signs of stopping. I Googled the shit out of hair loss and it could be a number of things. I am stressed at work, and I did just change my contraception but we are 8 months in now and I’m considering those bastard extensions again. SOMEBODY HELP ME.

2014 – TAKING CONTROL

It’s January and the time of year that people make the most changes in their life. I am getting a hair cut because I can no longer cling to this semblance of long hair anymore. Give me the chop and give it to me good.

New hair post coming soon!
