How's your hair looking?
NeedCoffeeToSurvive · 22/03/2021 12:23
If I don't laugh at myself I'll probably cry.
I had my hair done in October 2019 with the idea of getting it done again in early spring 2020 ready for the summer, well that didn't plan out obviously and now another 12 months have passed and I look like Brian May.
Anti-frizz serum is useless at this point.
Tell me I'm not the only person who looks ridiculous.

Awful, like a mullet. It's ridiculous that salons have been closed for almost 4 months as well as last year's closures too. Salons spent a fortune putting safety measures in place, having your haircut is part of your wellbeing and it's normal to feel upset that it's been taken away from you.

It is awful that salons have been closed for so long when the risks there were so low, and when so much effort was put into implementing safety measures.
It is depressing to have personal care taken away - for the first 2 or 3 months I just felt scruffy, like we all did. Now I feel I look like someone that has no respect for themselves, because of the length of time it's gone on.

My hair is one whole heap of nope.
It hasn’t been hacked at for a year now and is one massive haystack. And all my hair that fell out whilst I was ill is growing back again. I have a halo of frizz. Think Ken Dodd sticking his hand in an electrical socket.....
I’ve tried to dye it red too.
I have an appointment booked for the end of April, I am so tempted to put a paper bag on my head to enter the salon

Honestly not too bad.
Had a haircut in September, it's a bit long now, but that's fine (I generally have a short bob).
The real issue is the colour. I usually do a balayage every 3 months, and as a result my hair is quite platinum blonde. WAS platinum blonde. Last balayage in august. Now it has grown so much I'm practically a brunette.
Good thing is, I see my natural colour for the first time in 20 years, and I have very few grey hair.
Bad thing is, I'm not sure I like my natural colour, and overall, it's a kind of identity shift.
I don't know what I will do moving forward. Maybe I'll let it grow until I have enough regrowth for a 100% brunette short bob.
Overall I feel like I've lost a lot of my identity since March 2020, not just because of the hair, but also because of being on my own 99.9% of the time, moving to a new neighbourhood, not seeing my friends etc...
Good thing I have work, but I feel I'm a [insert job title here] rather than a full person.
Very deep answer to a very simple question 😂

I had to cut a knot out of my hair the other day. I tried one of those sprays to cover up the grey but had an allergic reaction to it and now my face is like sandpaper. DD will have to do a home dye on it.
But my hairdresser is booked for 12th April and I am crossing off the days on my calendar!

I grew out a pixie last year, then had a few trims and ended up with a blunt bob. Last trim was in December. Apart from my fringe, it's looking remarkably good. I've an appointment in 4 weeks, so I'm keeping the scissors away from my fringe in the mean time.

My hair is currently HMMMM. I have however done two home bleaches on the front bits now and feel like actually I’ve done an ok job. It’s not yellow/orange or anything. But it’s in a bit of a mad way. I’m going to have it cut mid may. My hairdresser will be furious with me 🤣

Despite being quite stressed and living pretty much on toast and Mars bars through this lockdown, it's in really good condition and feeling thicker and more healthy than it has for a while. It looks a mess, though - really in need of a cut and colour.
I resolved not to DIY this lockdown, because I'm really sick of this shit now and just want a professional to do it properly. I'll enjoy the transformation more this way anyway, hopefully.
