Happy 3 month mark for my hair!
I saw my family over the weekend, my Mam was fascinated with my hair 😂 she can’t believe that I’ve just not been brushing it and it’s sectioned itself! For now at least, I’m past the frizzy halo stage and my hair just looks like defined waves, but if you touch it you can feel the tangles. I showed her a few of my more developed bits but I had to stop her from touching it too much 😂
I feel very lucky that she’s always just let me do my own thing, she’s not into the same clothing style as me, has no piercings (well, only one in each ear) and no tattoos, but she’s never been negative towards my choices. Concerned at first maybe, but always supportive and understanding. She knows that I’ve never followed trends and that I’m happy with my choices, and I think it makes her happy to know that I’m happy being me 😊
I still have nothing going on up front really, I’m trying to sleep on it but I always roll over! I’ve started sleeping on a knitted cushion to see if that’ll help but I know it’ll happen eventually.
Hope everyone’s well, I’ve not had another dream where I’ve cut or brushed my hair, but I did have a dream where I had long dreads, and then I think I realised that that wasn’t quite right and it turned out they were those plastic ones I used to plait in for festivals 😂 the good thing I’m taking away from that dream is that even though they were butt length and awesome, once I realised they weren’t my dreads I was upset that I’d put them in and missed my messy head!
But yeah, hi everyone! Hope you’re all loving life 😘
