Grow, already!

About 2 weeks back i took what i believe to be a random and reckless leap under the influence of boredom. I stepped up to the plate and got myself a haircut which resulted in the loss of long, silky hair which i took months and months to grow. It's all very me to do something like that. Classic Karen Siah moment. "Who wants to volunteer?" "Me! Me!" *waves hand ecstatically*.

anyway, i had my doubts about these stylish modern day hairstyles, but the moment i was drowned in praises and flattery i totally forgot about them. I ignored every scream in my subconscious mind telling me that it would be a pain to deal with when I'm running, and an even bigger pain to deal with every darn morning. and so, clad with the determination to make this hairstyle work, and armoured with the ego to be responsible for my stupid actions, i tried desperately with the hair dryer and a tub of "moving rubber" from Gatsby.

It was tough. Not only do i now take a longer time to get ready before leaving the house (which i really hate because i pride myself as being a ready-lets-go girl), but the amount of blowing and hair drying i subject my hair to has made it really really dry and damaged. And to top it off, I'm not even good at what I'm doing. The result almost never look like the picture above, and even if it did when i leave the house, it falls apart an hour into my outing.

The above picture is one such occasion. Then again, this picture may be a little subjective considering i'm posing next to beauty queen Ms Kristin Kreuk. But yea, focus on the hair. It's limp, it's frizzy, it looks horrible.

I want my hair to grow. like now. I want long straight hair again. I want hair which i can walk right out of the house any time of the day and it'll still look okay. I want my hair to hide as much of my ginormous shoulder frame as possible. I want hair which can be tied up, let down, braided, and so on. I want hair which won't mess up when i pull a t shirt over my head.

Maybe I should pay Yun Nam haircare a visit...haha....

yun nam haircare? lol...those gooey stuffs they paste on your hair? never believe in these snake-oil biz sweetie...but a good haircare regime (heat oil treatment) and sufficient protein and vitamins esp. C can safely see your hair/skin through.

if you ever need to go to the snake masters, probe for causes of the problems first before the solutions. then judge for yourself - never too eager ok.

but i believe you do not need to visit them yet...just remember ok.
