My Disastrous Hair Cut From Hell

My hair has looked and seen it all. Its been every colour on the hair colour wheel, and all sorts of different styles and lengths from the Victoria Beckham Bob to the Jennifer Aniston angled layered hair. I’ve had green ive had blue ive had red, i had mixed. But I have always been proud of my hair. As i grew up i knew though i always wanted my old long hair back. I havent bleached or died the top layers of my hair for years now but ive loved switching between mermaid blue and red underneath, because lets face it, i want to be a mermaid! Any whosay let’s get to todays absolute gutting events.

I have spent now three and a half years growing my hair and I have been sooooo proud of it. it was past my boobs and almost at my waist. It was long and I loved it finally. I especially wanted it long for my brother in laws wedding coming up in june. The only thing is after a year and a half without even a little trim my ends were looking lets just say, like the hairs on a pig, dry brittle and not the greatest thank goodness it didn’t smell like one though.

I have been taking my Cocoa Locks to help keep my hair healthy and help to grow so i thought time for  a little trim to help it along. I contacted the last lady who done my hair as she was brilliant and did exactly what  i asked, just a little snip. I unfortunately didn’t hear back from her (till now i must say) so the impatient person i am, i looked around until i found a lady with good reviews. I arranged for her to come today.

Now i must admit i was nervous i always get nervous using someone new because i know what hairdressers can be like, they get a little scissor happy if you know what you mean.

When she got here she had her daughter which is fine im always happy for that i know what its like, i cant get into a salon because i have no one to watch my kids so that s all good. She asked exactly what and i expressed VERY VERY PRECISELY i want to keep my length maybe just a half an inch NO MORE to help the ends. GREAT she said as i sat down in the soon to be terror chair.

The first snip happened and already i was going to dry. I scissors against my back felt very high up and already i was thinking to myself what the actual fudgcicle just happened, i stayed still and quiet and tried to close my eyes because i knew this wasnt what i wanted but with a haircut i don’t know what i can do after the first cut.

She finished and she checked twice the lengths and was like there you go all good!

I ran my fingers through and started welling up. …

SHE TOOK A GOOD 5 INCHES OFF OF MY DAMN HAIR!

Earlier I made her a cup of tea, and she didn’t touch it. But i ran to get the money to give her but she then took the tea and came and sat on my couch and began to chat. Dont get me wrong she was nice but i just wanted her to get out so i can cry and see exactly what she done because she didnt even show me. I did say o you seemed to take a lot off, and all she freaking said was O. O?! O!? Thats all you can say! And then she kept drinking her dang tea!

After 15 to 20 minutes of her not looking to leave i was like i need to get the boys ready so she left. The tears came coming down. Now i know how sad and vain and stupid this sounds, there’s sooo many worse things in the world then getting a bad hair cut i know i know but for me after so long growing it and being so proud of the length it made me feel good about myself and my appearance! So that’s why i was upset. I ran upstairs and looked in my vanity and called Kai right away in bits. As i was crying to him and inspecting the absolute shortest my hairs been in ages (it’s now at my freaking armpit, i then noticed, one side was a good inch longer then the other side! so not only did she make my hair a hell of a lot shorter than i asked she done a very lazy sloppy crap job on my hair and i will now have to pay to get fixed. the tears came again harder. I was now pissed.

Now i havent gone and messaged her and been like what the actual fudge, I’m not that type of person. I will however NEVER EVER go back to her or recommend her to anyone at all and write this blog post haha.

My lesson for the day, don’t trust anyone else with your hair if you have someone already really good and be patient and dont book someone else because you can’t wait.

Have a beautiful day people I know I will now after getting this off my chest and now going to wear hats and buns until i get the mop fixed 😀

Starting my Fitness and Health Journey All Over Again

One thing i use to pride myself on when i was in high school and after getting married was how active I was, how much i loved the gym and how healthy I was. During high school i was always at soccer training or games or practices, the majority of my elective glass were some sort of sport or fitness, and I went to the gym ALOT. And when I got married, the activities stopped but i walked everywhere, i worked out at home or the gym and was more health conscious. SO when i completely let myself go when i was pregnant with both my boys, it changed me so so much. I was unhappy with how i looked and felt, i emotionally ate, and exercise was just walking to one place and then catching a bus back. When I had my second, i was the heaviest i have EVER  been. it was bad and my health took a toll from it all. So i decided i was going to do something about it! i worked out at home i started to eat better again and i was walking place to place., I even finally found a gym and time to go as my husband said he’d watch the boys for an hour a night while i went. I was doing great and in total i lost 65 pounds! i was so happy but i knew i had a lot more i had to do along with toning up. However, we went on a trip home to florida and i felt really good on how far i came, but the food got the better of me. Then, christmas came and that was another excuse and then it was very cold… i was gaining again and i felt soooo sluggish. So finally this past month i decided nope time to be dedicated. I started watching inspirational and helpful tip videos and ive started the gym again and do things at home with the boys. Im looking at different options of what to eat instead of the crap i was fueling my body with or in other words, poisoning it with. I have a long way to go as i have just started this journey again but im excited and more determined then ever. Im so happy to also say my husband will be joining me on this journey but he’s bought a bike to start cycling as a fitness thing for him! We both know we want to be fit happy and healthy for our kids and live a long happy healthy life for them! i may have to start over but if i didn’t start over i wouldn’t have a chance to better myself and i know im in a better frame of mind. I just wanted to quickly come on here and put a little post on how ive just started as i want to share my life and whats going on with all of you! I will try to post updates and i will get back to posting more frequently on here 🙂 I hope you all have a beautiful night and weekend!
