That's amazing!! You look so different with the shorter hair and I'm rather jealous you look gorgeous with any length!!
Thank you! I actually really loved the super short hair- up to about an inch in length, I would say? It was really cute and kind of elfish on me. But it was pretty boring too, haha.
Ever since this post, you've gotten me thinking about cassia. How much cassia do you use for a treatment?
My cassia pack is about
and I use half of it. The circa 65 grams are about 1,5 dl in all since its
I’ve been thinking about using the whole pack for a treatment since its quite hard to ”smear” at least if you don’t add extra water or tea to the conditioner mix! (You probably shouldn’t “massage” it around too much either when the texture is so rough and grainy)
I add it to around
of conditioner mix to get a good cover.
Your hair look amazing and the hairdo was a really good choice to go with the clothes. I'm absolutely in love with the bathing suit's print, your designer friend is very talented!
I told her you said that and she was really happy!
Have you ever posted photos of your hair before you shaved your head? I don't think I've ever seen your hair when you were younger/leading up to the big buzz. Or do you prefer to keep those private?~ Darkhorse
Hmm. I guess I never thought anyone would really be interested in seeing that? To be honest, I think you’re the first one to ask.
I know I have posted one because it is in my upload:
(Not very flattering one, hmm. Don’t know why I uploaded this? I think it might be from the university Christmas party a few days before I shaved it all off. )
I may have a few paper photos of myself pre-shave somewhere, but otherwise I’d have to look around at my parents. Might be fun to show pictures of how I grew my bangs out the first time!
I always find it interesting to see 'before and after' and I think this was the only photo I'd seen of you prior to shaving. I think you'd said you'd had very damaged hair and hence the shaving, but was curious to see how it looked prior to the shave :)
It depends a little on the circumstances what I say.
Yes, it was damaged. But I could probably have salvaged it anyways. The truth is that I actually wanted to try it (Gasp)
But people have a really weird reaction when you tell them you shaved your head.
If you tell them it was because it was really damaged, then all is good: Why yes, of course you have to cut damaged hair. It’s like an unwritten rule! Because if you don’t, it will… Errh. Start growing its evil damaged ends into your skull and kill you. Or something. Yep.
For some reason I will never understand, that is an acceptable explanation for everyone. No further questions, no follow up curiosity, nothing.
If I just want to get away from the subject, I will go with this.
But the truth is that I really wanted to try it. I had the thought of trying to go bald a few times leading up to it and when I brought it up to a friend, she said “Well, better do it now. Soon you will be too old to do something like that” and for some reason it scared me more than the thought of what I would look like bald.
But people have a weird reaction to that. Most of the time they react like you had just admitted you enjoy hitting babies with puppies. Some times they get thoroughly offended by what you did in your past with your own hair growing out of your own body. Because that somehow affects them. Several times I even got mean remarks about “mocking cancer patients”. Right. Because they somehow copyrighted the bald head? And because cancer patients will feel offended over random people being bald? Funny thing is, the cancer survivors I have met have all been the most down to earth people who learned how shallow, silly things like that doesn’t matter anymore. If you want people who truly look away from your skin and see only your actions in life and your soul; Talk to cancer survivors. They don’t care. And they would be horrified that people feel the need to “defend” them like this.
But yea, some times I really don’t feel like starting a discussion about people’s stupid shallowness or try to teach anyone a lesson. Then I go with “It was really damaged”. And then people all nod to themselves because that was the mature and correct thing to do. Or something.
