HAIR CUT

That's right. 
I woke up on the 21st and was itching for a haircut. After getting my sew in, I suffered significant breakage. I mean, my hair was choppy and uneven. It looked very unhealthy. I didn't want to even it because sections were so close to BSL. But I didn't care anymore. I wanted my ends blunt and that's what I did. I took time and washed, DCed my hair and added my leave in conditioners. Then I sectioned my hair into some sections and got to work. I cut it to a respectfully blunt full SL and I love the way it looks. 
My Felicia-inspired before pic lol 
Four inches lighter. 
I did this myself, only help was with a mirror. I think I did pretty darn good. 
Here is me with my hair shirt. My head is horribly crooked in this picture, but I am on line 5. I am hoping to be at line 7 for my next relaxer coming up on the very last week of July. With the help of some vitamins and castor and TLC on the ends, it's reachable. 

I love my results. My entire head looks even and at the same length. I believe that I can really thrive from this point. My hair looks healthy and the fullness of my ends are mesmerizing to me. Lol. I do not want to back up to SL, but with my hair looking like this, I have no regrets. 

Since my cut, I have been babying my ends already. No tight ponytails, no splitting my nape down the middle. About 80 percent of my hair is even and I am loving it. Some of my flexi rod sets did not turn out as cute as normal with the shorter cut, but it's updo week for me and you can't tell me that i am missing a few inches with the styles I have been rocking. 
Fridays updo
Sundays updo
Mondays updo. 

I will be rocking updos all of this week until Sunday!!!! It's my birthday on Sunday and I believe that I am going to cheat this one day and rock a roller set. I would love to see what some roller set curls would look like on this new blunt, hair-almost-even-and-the-same-length cut. If I DNT like it, I'll put it in an updo. It's supposed to rain all day on Sunday anyway. Lol. 

Until the next post,
Alexis

  1. First of all---Hello gorgeous curls!! Lol. Second, I love the cut. I had to do something similar a few years ago and it was totally worth it! Health over length right?
