So you will have to trust me when I say I am growing out my hair, and it is getting longer (oh so slowly).
I've had long hair a few times in my life, and my mother always told me that we just don't have the hair for it. In fact, both my parents have long encouraged my sister and I to keep our locks on the shorter side because it's just "more flattering" for us. I do have naturally thin hair (though it's thick in the sense that there are tons of these fine hairs). For the past few years, I've been a bit unsure of what to do with it style and care-wise when it's long, and I've enjoyed the liberating feeling I get from cutting it all off. So long hair for me? Not so much.
That being said, I decided a few months back to give long hair another try. And boy, is it tedious. I cut bangs into it to keep myself amused, and dyed it brown.
Actually, these changes might work to my advantage. The dark color makes my hair look a bit thicker and the bangs solve a problem I always struggled with in framing my face when I had stick straight, looong hair. I've also been doing research on how to make it look nicer (Herbal Essences and a blow dry just weren't cutting it alone).
Today I stumbled on the site Thread Sence,which has pretty sweet clothes at good prices. Even better for me was the hair inspiration! The model featured my basic hair goal, minus the color. I spent the better part of my time on the site daydreaming about the hair I will have if only I can wait...
