Not long now til the clock chimes 12 and we will be prompted to speak of our new year’s resolutions. I already have a few up my sleeve but one I am certainly planning on sticking to is making that little bit more effort with my hair. It’s quite often the one thing that is rushed, but I know myself when I dedicate even a little bit of extra time to styling, I feel so much better. Read on for some ideas on how to make the most out of your barnet!
I will be brave
Some of us are dying for a new hair colour, others are considering a different cut and yet we’re too scared to act on it and really and truly make it happen! Promise yourself this one will be different than all new year’s hair resolutions you’ve made so far! You’ll be braver this year and you will do what you feel is right. You go girl! Dye your hair even if it means some clothes (or colours, to be precise) will be off limits for you due to a new color or cut it short even if you’ve worn it long for the last 5 years!
I will spend more time styling my hair
Having a low maintenance cut doesn’t mean you’re off the hook when it comes to styling! Sure, you’re free to enjoy it, spend more time doing other things and still look good although you should promise yourself to do something nice with your hair every once in a while. You can curl it, braid it, put it up, experiment with tons of different styles and you don’t even have to have a really special reason to do it! A walk or dinner with your hubby, a boring Monday – it doesn’t really matter! You can be the busiest woman in the world and still have time to do it at least once a month. Because every woman deserves to get her hair done, put some make up and clothes to match and enjoy being and feeling flawless like a movie star at least once even 30 days! And that is something you should put in your resolution for new year!
I will restock
Throw away products with expired dates, pass along or swap the ones that are not doing it for you, don’t wait for your brushes to fall apart before you decide to get new ones and, trust me, not having a pair of decent hair clips is not something to brag about! Restock, woman! Invest in good quality brushes but opt for cheap accessories so you could get more. As for the products – either use them or pass them along but definitely ask for samples before you invest your hard earned cash in something that may not work as good as it sounds!
I’ll beat my flaws
Speaking about things to put in your new year’s hair resolution – could this be the year in which you’ll finally stop hating your hair? It sure could and it sure will be! Time to learn how to mask those tiny flaws that are making you feel bad! Invest in a proper teasing brush (not a plastic comb – a natural bristle brush), learn how to tease and enjoy that volume you’ve been dreaming about! Frizzy hair, unmanageable curls, waves you never know what to do with or a pin straight mane that would need a miracle to curl – all of those common problems are solvable and you’ll find plenty of posts here to help you get started! The first step is up to you, of course and I really hope this will be the year in which you finally learn to love and manage your hair.
I’ll spend a bit more
But only on the right products! If you love a certain product or you’ve managed to get some samples and decided it’s truly fabulous, don’t let the price stand on your way. You would spend the same (or roughly the same) amount of money randomly purchasing cheaper products in hopes you’ll find a budget-friendly replacement.
