BBLO: Long Hair Don't Care

I have a love-hate relationship with my hair. I love it but I really hate brushing it. I just hate forcing myself to do it and that let's it get the point of no return, by which I mean I have to cut my hair into a bob stat!

I have always had a cycle where I grow my hair up to the point where I just can't handle the length anymore and need to cut it. When I cut my hair short I then grow it until it is long again. I have never in my life tried to maintain a short hair cut. it is just not my thing as I have super fast growing hair and if I tried to keep my hair the one length it would be constant hair cuts and as much as I love my hair being played with I don't do hair cuts. Last year I got two hair cuts and that was kind of a big deal for me!

I have thick frizzy wavy hair and if I have enough Karma is air dries pretty nicely. If I sleep on it wet no amount of karma can fix it.

Some things I think are behind my fast growing hair are:

Genetics - I think I lucked out and part of the reason behind my hair is just something that my body naturally does and I am extremely grateful.

Little heat - I don't blow dry, straighten or curl my hair very often. Not because I want to take care of my hair but because I am lazy and can't be bothered majority of the time. However that fact this is better for my hair just encourages this lazy behaviour.

Coconut oil - if you know me in person you know I love coconut oil. I honestly buy it in bulk at Costco. I often will try and put coconut oil my hair before I wash it. I will even leave it in overnight to make it extra nice. Although sometimes I put coconut oil in hair to ensure that I actually wash my hair as there are those days when it just seems like so much effort.

Washing my hair sparingly -  I have never washed my hair everyday. I do not have time for that! I am more of a every 3 days person, sometimes longer. Messy buns hide everything believe me. I will have a day or two where my hair is down looking nice and then is just messy buns or a high pony!

Virgin Hair - I don't dye my hair not because it bad for your hair mainly because I do not have time for re-growth. I don't like the idea of being able to see this not my natural hair colour. Also it is so expensive to get it done professionally.

Since writing most of this post I have cut my hair! However I am sure my hair will be all long and lush again soon. Right now I am really enjoying short hair!

Until next time.
