I have been wearing weaves since I was 18 and I never thought that the day would come where I would be truly happy with my weave. Countless of trips to the salon have ended in disappointment or short lived happiness, but after spending 6 hours in the salon and 600g-700g of Brazilian hair later, I am finally happy with the result. I feel like a new woman and it has inspired me to change the name of my blog!
Some girls like to buy handbags, others like to buy shoes, I like to buy hair and all three of them can be expensive habits.
One of the main reasons why I have never been happy with my weave is because I couldn’t afford the hair that I wanted. I used to go for cheaper hair which meant that despite the hair dealer (I like to call them that) telling me that the hair was Brazilian, it would only be a matter of months before the hair would become brittle, leaving me unhappy and out of pocket.
But over the years, I have been buying hair of a much higher quality and a recent trip to the hairdressers left me feeling humbled as I was finally able to afford the weave of my dreams. To you it probably just looks like a lot of hair, but to me it’s a milestone and a reflection of my handwork. I have achieved something that I have longed for and now I am determined to achieve the rest of my goals… Starting with changing my blogs name!
When I first started this blog I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with it, I just knew that I enjoyed writing and that I wanted to write. But, after what can only be described as a magical five months, I have decided to change my blogs name as I’m starting to build a brand and I want my brand to be my name. The content of my blog will still remain the same, my blog is me and that is all I know how to be.
With my new weave, comes new ambition and self belief. 2015 has been a wonderful year thus far, but I am excited to see what happens next…who knew that a new weave could make me feel this good!?
It doesn’t matter how silly our unrealistic your goals may seem, you will get there if you promise to keep trying and never give up.
