    I actually love going to get my hair cut! Although I know what you mean. Sometimes your haircut and confidence in yourself is only as good as your hairdresser’s. If they are a good stylist, they will make you feel at ease, give you great tips and in general just make you feel good about yourself. The not-so-good ones will tend to make small talk, probably be a bit nosy and worse yet, not know what they’re doing when they’re cutting your hair.

    The reason why I love getting my hair cut is probably because I do it at a time when I want to “start afresh”. There’s something very therapeutic about cutting your hair I find. It’s that relief in letting go of that weight that has physically been sat on your shoulders. Each time that I’ve had a big haircut, I have found relief in it. I have gone through such haircuts at least three times in my life. I admit that having a haircut can be just as daunting though because you are forced to confront yourself in the mirror and depending on how you feel that day, you might start looking at all your flaws.

      I LOVE leaving the hairdressers with freshly cut hair. I like when my hair looks healthy and smooth again, but the process itself is frustrating.
      I think a lot of it does have to do with who cuts your hair. I felt more comfortable when I had a regular stylist and they kind of knew my routine. At some places I just feel like I’m being judged and I find the experience awkward.
      Maybe that’s me but the minute I walk in I think, where do I look and what do I say?!
      Hair cuts are really therapeutic and they can make you feel different – like a new beginning. At the minute I love being boring and just getting a trim with the same length. I’ll see how long this lasts 🙂

    Can feel ya girl! Just got my haircut and it came out well but hated the fact that it was kinda awkward for my stylists since I only cut my hair like once a year. I also suffer from dandruff which is dreadful when you wash your at the salon. I kept getting questions about how often I wash or how often I cut it since my hair is damaged and soo dry as well. My hair scares me since I do have hair loss but I feel that almond oil is def helping me with my hair growth tho but am worried bu dandruff so def gonna get some more consultation about that with my dermotologist. Long hair was just so hard to maintain so I decided to cut it short and am a bit happier now. Totally can relate to all your posts girl!

    PS. I think the hair cut looks amazing on you ❤️

      I had a friend years ago who had hair loss and dandruff and she ended up seeing a specialist. I don’t think it’s about not shampooing – in fact, dandruff can come from not washing out product properly. Not saying you do that but that there’s different reasons and a stylist should realise that.
      I found my bob really difficult. It needed constant styling otherwise it just fell on my face flat. I don’t mind being recommended product but I hate when it’s really pushy and constant. ❤️

I would love to read your thoughts!
