Wednesday, June 8, 2011 My Hair Over The Years

My hair and I haven't been best friends lately (details in upcoming post!) but I still love it! Nora from Botoxey just made a post about her hair, and she said she wanted to see the different colors I've had so here ya go! :)

 Just some of the different hairstyles I've worn over the past three years. 
There are lots more, but I will save those for another time :)


My hair is not the easiest to take care of. Being mixed (black and Japanese) has offered me a lot of versatility when it comes to my hair and my looks. My natural hair is curly, but it's more like springy waves than curls, as you can see in the picture on the bottom right. I was blessed with strong hair that can withstand a lot of torture! My hair is also great because, with a little help, it can really hold a style (most of the time!) It's also pretty easy to straighten, and will stay straight until I wash it.

However, wearing my natural curls can be a bit of a hassle. They tend to drop quickly and straighten out if I touch them :( I also have to deal with a lot of the issues that come along with curly hair. Mainly dryness and frizziness! Obviously, living in this climate isn't doing me any favors!

I like to play around with color a lot, too. In the past three years alone, I've been various shades of blonde, brown, black and red! I wore extensions for a while, too but couldn't find any decent pictures of that!

Two summers ago, I had Japanese Straightening done on my hair. It was great because my hair was straight all the time, and it really cut down on my styling time. But I really missed my curls and my volume! You know us Dubai Girls, we like everything BIGGER!! hehehe :)

Do any of you share my love of 'instant gratification' via hairstyles? :)

    Thanks! I really love having red hair. And yeah, I think the only color I didn't like on me was when I was on holiday and my (newly) blonde hair went orange! hahah It wasn't very pretty. I guess after you've done everything you just repeat the cycle! haha :)

    Thank you Ki! I love my curly hair, but it can be a hassle sometimes. Right now, I let my hair airdry and sometimes scrunch the curls, but it's so hot that I end up putting my hair up...and then the curls drop :( What is a girl to dooo? hehe
