Before we discuss my new 1960’s/70’s inspired hairstyle, my post schedule. It’s been a mess, I know. Life has been crazy over the last few weeks and I’m about to give you the oldest excuse in the book…I haven’t been able to find the time to blog. Exams are quickly approaching and let’s just say, if you don’t hear from me for a while, that’s why.
But anyway, enough with the excuses. A few days ago I got the sudden urge to chop my hair off…all of it. After a bit of contemplation…and an Instagram poll, I decided to do it. Naturally, I went to Pinterest for inspiration and this is what it resulted in:
What did I ask the hairdresser for? Shoulder length with LOTS of layers. I’ll admit, I was terrified to have such short layers as my curls could be so unpredictable. But so far so good.
I’m so pleased with it and honestly, I wish I did it sooner. I feel like a whole new person! No more 1 hour long detangling sessions in the shower and dry, stringy ends. It’s a new beginning!
I’ve been experimenting with an Afro pick (which is not something I could’ve done with my long hair) and I am LOVING the volume!
My advice to you: Just do it (Nike please sponsor me). If you want to do a big chop, do it. If you want to dye your hair a crazy colour, do it.
I used to be attached to my hair. I would spend hours slaving over it and the slightest bit of frizz would drive me up a wall. BUT, within the last few days, I’ve developed a more chilled attitude towards it. If my curls want to be frizzy, they will be frizzy and I have little control over that. Why fight the frizz? Embrace it!
I thought it would have been a lot harder for me to do such drastic cut, but it was surprisingly easy. Don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE my curls but it’s just hair (it’ll grow).
My new hair means new routines and possibly new products so look out for an abundance of hair related posts coming soon to a Caribbeancurl near you.

Until next time,
