Would you believe that for 30 years I'd never had my hair cut by a hairdresser? Then this year after having some months of my hair falling out I decided to get it cut to half its length which my mum wouldn't do so I had to take the risk and go to the hairdressers. My hair stopped falling out but now that it was a similar length to before I had the same problem so decided to go again and get it cut
|The only thing I don't have is the hair dryer|
For some time I had been considering getting some straighteners as my sister gave me some that a friend gave to her and I wanted a decent set. So after getting my hair done for a second time I decided to buy myself a set of ghd. It was such a hard decision with the price as I don't straighten my hair enough and I don't 100% like it but the thing that swayed me is that I can curl my hair using them. As a really young child I had curly hair but as my hair has grown longer they've turned to waves which just makes my hair bushy so I hate having my hair down (plus I feel hot). My nieces was super curly but now her curls are slowly turning to waves too but my sister with having cut her hair shorter has lovely curls.
I actually bought a curling wand but that does nothing for my hair and now I've got this curling wand that I've used once and can't use again. I'll have to see if my sister in law would let her daughter have it as she has perfect straight hair that doesn't need a straighter.
Anyway after spending weeks looking at straighteners I decided to go with this one even though I really loved the peacock theme. I was so shocked though when I came home and the package was huge, I was even more shocked on opening it... I didn't know that either of the boxes would be there as it wasn't mentioned in the listing but I have to admit I feel slightly cheated also. I love boxes but in this case I would have just wanted the straighteners and other bits and not 2 shoe sized boxes that I'm going to now struggle to store with my things. Also when an item is so expensive already it feels unfair to pay for 2 items you never wanted, I would much rather have bought the straighteners for less. Still it was a nice surprise.
Now I need to throw out all my make up that I've had for 6 years+ (most from when I get married) and just keep the basics since I only wear it on special occasions. I don't look after myself at all... I always have chapped lips and hands, untamed hair.... but I would love to be more girlie as I do like those things too.
