Have you ever seen that YouTube video of the kid who yells about his "new f-- haircut?" I'll spare you by not posting it here, but rumor has it he's from around these parts. Today I finally got my haircut, it needed it so badly. Has anyone else's hair changed as they got older? Less than a year ago I was taking Accutane, I started it in May of 2009 and finished in mid-March 2010. It was life changing, and not only did my skin clear up but my hair changed completely. Once upon a time I was in a sorority and my nickname was "Jewfro." It was not meant to be an insult, but simply that my Jewish heritage had blessed me with a massive mane of unruly curls. I let it grow long long long for almost 2 years without cutting it. My whole life I had had long, dark, curly hair until I took Accutane (or more accurately the generic form Claravis). Now my hair is thinner, lighter in color, and while its still wavy it no longer falls into ringlets. Now I can't even remember how it was to have long hair, though when I see girls with the cute bun-heads I'm sometimes struck with a bit of jealousy.
This is how I looked before, the only thing I put in it besides conditioner and occasionally shampoo was body lotion. Yep, body lotion to contain the frizz:Here is how it looked this evening before my cut. I didn't bother to blowdry it, and just washed and fell asleep. Falling into a pillow is quite an excellent hair styling technique usually.And here is how it looks now! I never wear my hair so neat but my hairdresser cuts it very nicely.
I'm sorry for the weak posts, I'm very sad without my camera and its been too cold to snap outfit pics. Hopefully next week will be better.
