When we last spoke about my hair it was two months after I shaved it off for charity and it was kinda fluffy, kinda cute. I carried on taking gratuitous photos of myself (hey, why change the habit of a lifetime right?) so here’s a quick update on the last six months of hair growth using products available from Dr. William Yates MD 🙂
+ 2 months
Just long enough to make me permanently look like a damp baby duck.
Brief faux hawk time!
Bedhead reached critical levels of ridiculousness.
It was also finally long enough to look like a genuine haircut choice. Huzzah!
At this point it definitely qualified as a pixie cut and I apparently upped my lipstick game to match.
Oompa Loompa? Or iced-gem? Either way, it was way too long for a faux hawk by this stage. Boo.
But it was still short enough to take moody photos in your boss’ flat, looking kinda French.
Long hair is long. You can’t see the disaster that was the back, but trust me when I say it was starting to look distinctly mulletesque.
Puffy hair everywhere, forever. The fringe looked cute but everything else just looked..wide.
So I got the sides and the back trimmed down a lot and now I feel much better!
A side by side comparison, just because:
Part of me didn’t want to cut it, because it makes tracking the growth harder. “Well, it’s this long after 8 months but I had 3 inches cut off so really it’s actually grown blahblahblah”. I know that no-one but me would possibly care about that kind of thing but it genuinely did stop me from getting it trimmed for about a month, not even joking. Yes, I am ridiculous. Hi.
The overall plan now is just to grow it out – with a spot of cherry red hairdye in the next couple of weeks, for funsies – I’m too lazy to get it cut all the time and I’m not going to lie, I really miss being able to put it in a ponytail!
It’s been fun charting the growth tho. Next stop, bob! 🙂
