I've had long hair for 30+ years and have today had it all chopped off shock This world is brand new to me and all of the hair products own don't seem to fit with the new do. Any suggestions on must have products for the lob?

I've also gone blonde so probably need some kind of extra conditioning. I have it in a wavy style at the moment which I'm loving but no idea if I'll be able to recreate it.

Anyone else gone from very long to short? I keep forgetting then go to touch my hair by my waist and it's not there grin

I do this every few years haha 😂 every time I get it long , I cut it off again . Latest one was from long (ish) and blonde to lob and brunette !
My all time hair product I would recommend is Moroccan Oil , you put a couple of pumps through the ends before drying . It's the best product I have come across and you can bu in salons . Also I would recommend you invest in a good quality shampoo and conditioner and leave you conditioner on for at least an hour once a week . smile. Hope you enjoy your new do !

A decent hairdryer with a nozzle. Some oil for flyaways as you won't have the weight to tame your hair anymore!

Oooo Moroccan Oil, I like the sounds of that! Will definitely invest in some, seems easily available too. Gosh I do envy you changing your hair every few years, I imagine my next change will come when I'm 60 grin

A decent hairdryer is something I definitely don't own shock because my hair was so long I always just stuck it up in a bun to dry. I've noticed my style has already started to drop when normally, in my long hair, curls would stay put for days so I need to get used to the new weightless lifestyle grin

Hehe love it ! Well my sister is a hair dresser so maybe that's why but I just don't get attached to my hair ?
Hope you get on well with the m oil smile
