For those who are interested.....
This was a SLOG of a grow-out when your hair is slow growing like mine!
I do not recommend growing out your hair from a super short pixie with no fringe, to shoulder length hair with long fringe - unless you are very motivated!! Which I was, and still am. I have four more inches to go! Then I will have reached my goal, and I'll be super satisfied. Still have odd layers and a fringe to grow out.
Completely natural colour! I'm a dark blonde, or honey blonde now. Have not dyed it in a year. It's much lighter when the sun shines on it (#3). If I lived in a sunny place, my hair would be naturally sun-kissed like it was when I lived in Cape Town.
I prefer my light blue specs with my darker hair! (#4 and #5)
My goal is to keep it soft, simple, natural, polished, and in excellent condition. Sometimes straight and sometimes wavy. I'm wearing fun pearl clips and barettes too! Pics at some point.
This is blow dried straight. Not quite long enough to look fab behind one ear, but getting there.
LOVE the infrequent visits to the salon, the very short time in the salon chair, and the much cheaper service.
This is the last day of our end of year break and we are relaxing very casually at home. This is as casual as I go. I'm about to do some cooking and take the doggies for a walk.
I'm on a mission to make quite big changes in my life - and this has been one change. A goal accomplished :)
