Do you find it hard to love your hair? Are you one of those typical ‘want what you haven’t got’ girls? Our hair can often cause us more frustration than any other aspect of our appearance, perhaps because it’s so much a part of our image. Many of us spend a lot of time and money trying to change the look of our hair. We change the colour, have extensions put in because we can’t persuade it to grow longer, straighten our curls or have curls put in when it’s straight. It’s really so much easier to learn to be happy with your hair as it is! So here are some great reasons to love your hair type, whatever it is.
It’s part of you
Why should you not love your hair, when it’s part of you? Perhaps you find it frustrating because it’s so curly, and you can’t do a thing with it. Instead of hating your hair, learn to work with it. Get a good cut and find products that work for you. Perhaps you were teased for being a redhead? Hey, there are women who spend a fortune colouring their hair to get the look that you were born with!
Time (and money) saving!
Changing your hair because you’re unhappy with it is very expensive and involves a lot of visits to the salon. What’s more, you have to keep repeating the process regularly. Work out how much money you spend on your hair, and you’ll probably get quite a shock when you total up the annual bill for salon visits and expensive shampoos. Learn to love your natural hair, and you’ll save both time and money!
If you’ve always hated your hair, then it’s time to stop and take a closer look. Is it really that bad? You might think it’s a boring mousy brown or a dull blonde, but a closer glance will show the different shades. Nobody else has hair exactly like yours, so be proud of it – it’s unique!
Whatever your hair type, and however much you hate it, I can guarantee one thing. Someone else loves it and wishes that they had your hair! The funny thing about hair is that we invariably dislike our own, and love someone else’s. Yet they hate their hair and would probably love ours! Remember what I said about redheads? Those people who teased you when you were a kid are probably envious now!
Learning to be happy with your hair makes your life a lot more practical. Instead of having to spend hours every morning straightening your hair (which isn’t good for the condition), you can get ready much faster if you accept your natural hair. Plus it avoids the time and expense of having your hair coloured (a decent colourist does not come cheap, and do you really enjoy having to go back once a month to have your roots touched up?).
