Sleek low bun

Am 8 weeks 2 days post relaxer today!

And this has been my style of choice this past week.


My obsession…

…blunt, thick ends!

That’s one of the reasons I’ve been cutting my hair over and over in the past year. My hair doesn’t grow evenly all round. Does anyone’s? Add to that the inevitable wear and tear and this is what I end up with…

Ive been looking at the picture below from my previous post and couldn’t help but wonder what was going on with the hair on the left side of my head.

That side never wants to behave well! Like what’s going on with the ends? I hadn’t noticed how different both sides we’re. I took other pics a week later…

The right side is Fuller for obvious reasons. I initially wanted to even it out but decided against it…that’s being extra I think. Overall, my hair is healthy and looks good. So no more snipping for now.

1.5 more days till wash day (I spotted dandruff!)

What’s your obsession?

I got bangs!

I got bangs!

Like, finally!

On the 28th of August, a Monday, I woke up at 3 something and gave myself bangs – I tend to do my hair at very odd hours 😀 I basically snipped of a good 5 inches or so to achieve straight across bangs.

My bangs came out too wispy which is not what I wanted but I didn’t fret because I knew that that was due to my hair being straightened – I had flat ironed it the previous day and it was kinda flat. Instead of cutting off more hair, I decided not to wear out the bangs and wait till after the next wash day when I’d have a little bit of texture and volume to work with. I washed my hair after wearing it straight for a week and a half.

I love how I cut them! Wide and long…right above my eyes. I mostly wear them side swept because…default style. Plus one side is slightly longer and that works. I’ve had the bangs for a little over a month and its time to trim them.

I can’t believe its taken me years to muster the courage to get bangs! I think I first mentioned wanting bangs in 2012…yea, its been a long time coming. Its just that the longer my hair grew, the more reluctant I became about getting them but after my haircut in March, I figured I could do it and so the next month, over the Easter holiday, I attempted to cut side swept bangs. I ended up with long bangs and it looked like I’d done nothing. That was a fail :/ This time I really went for it. I’m still rocking buns though 🙂 Also trying to figure out the best way to style the bangs for a more polished look. Talk about a high maintenance style!
