I haven’t had a haircut (or trim) since I impulsively decided to chop off my locks back in the summer of 2009. It was a liberating experience for me then, as I did not think about how I would maintain a haircut like that—I only saw it on Taylor Momsen and thought that it was “cool.” I did it on a whim, to rid myself of “excess baggage” plaguing the very pits of my soul. Haha!
You see, my hair is not very cooperative with me. It waves at the most undesirable parts, making me look like a stupid mess. That’s why a ponytail with side-swept bangs was my go-to look for the remainder of 2009.
Come 2010, I had my hair rebonded to finally look a little more decent and mature. Well, actually I had a rebond because my hair was getting way too unmanageable.
Some three months later, I decided to dye my hair a certain shade of brown. It was the first time I colored my hair, by the way. As I fell in love with it, I decided to lighten it up a bit more and ended up with a crown of hair that was adored by almost everybody. (Nyahaha!) A couple of months later, I wanted to change my dye again but ended up with an uneven colored-hair. I guess because my hair grew an inch or two since the second time I dyed my hair, only the roots (virgin hair) ended up being colored. I dyed it back to black the next day.
Now for 2011, I want to change my hairstyle again because I’m bored. On January 2, I bought a DIY hair color treatment from Hortaleza, the one we always buy, and dyed my hair two hours before bedtime. Unfortunately, I ended up with the same disastrous, uneven colored hair. This time though, I hated even the color that diminutively colored my hair. I have no idea why that keeps happening to me. Maybe it’s time that I go to a real colorist, eh?
Right now I have this long black hair. It’s that long, already. I don’t want to cut it because I know the ends would end up being wavy and I’m too lazy to flat iron my hair every morning. Being a girl with the “siopao” face is not exactly easy. Y’feel me? I can’t cut it too short lest I end up looking like a terrible version of Mojacko. I also don’t want a perm since I already did it in college and thought it made me look fatter.
Sheesh. I’ve been stressing about my hair for the last two weeks now.
