My Shorter Permed Hair

As I mentioned in earlier posts… I cropped 6 inches of my original hair. I was a little hesitant to chop off my below waist length hair but it was just too long and unmanageable. The ends were also getting dry due to the lack of nutrients. But the biggest push for me was the hot weather. Super long hair looks very pretty and dolly when curled but is really hard to pin up for outdoor activities. And I do spend a large amount of my time with my dog which means going to the parks and beaches and running around!

When the cut was through… my hair length was somewhere near my boobs. It was neat and sweet but a little too bland so I requested for a perm. I was warned that the perm will look nowhere as nice as my perm in Japan as my hair was too short to achieve beautiful large bouncy curls. But I took the risk.

The first couple of days I looked pretty auntish cause the curls were really tight!

But now after a week…. the curls are looking more natural without losing it’s shape. I’ve not tied up my hair for ages with my old hairstyle that I’m totally loving this one and I tie my hair up most of the days!!! My head feels a ton lighter! Ask me if I will regrow my hair super long again? I probably would (I’m vain!) but for now… Bun up my hair please! I’m gonna arrange for an all- adventure… mountain trekking… white water rafting and horse riding trip next month!
