    Default Self Trim in Pictures and Saving my Sheddings Project Update

    Hi again!

    Next post I will be banned for opening so many new posts for a single subject

    Oh well... I'm posting the pictures i took from my trim, because i simply don't have the patience to work for university right now, I'm about to breakdown!! Geesh...

    So... they are not very good quality, my hair is not really shiny, because they were taken in the bathroom. They do show to process tough

    So this is my hair before the trim, LHC pose


    And when i pulled it down, as you see, it's just past wais lenght yay!


    Then I didn't do that process of pulling down the tie because I don't think it is too accurate, so I decided to do the multiple tie thing, and it worked just fine. I actually like th elook of this style on me, tough i wouldn't wear it out with such multiple colors hehe


    Then I pulled it to the front and these were my ends before


    And this is after i trimmed about 1 cm (less than half an inch)


    After this I still did those last steps of dividing my hair to the front and trimmed one more cm from each side. There were only some whispies and what I did was simply get them to be blunt and voila! This is my hair after, LHC pose, and yes, my sister acted artistically with the camera and the angle is crooked


    This is when I pull my hair straight now, and it still gets past waist a little bit yay!!


    I guess I can call this a successfull self trim. Of course you can't see much of a diference to the quality of the ends but with time they will be just gorgeous! I hope...

    And last but not least, this is the current state of my sheddings collection


    I have finished the first roll of glue tape and am currently working on the second. I am liking the idea of collecting my hair and it's not that worksome. It's a bit sentimental not to be trashing my hair just cause it's not on my head anymore, I do still love it

    Oh well, hope you liked the pictures! I'll be seeing ya around!

    Little Bird, We've missed you!

    Your hair has gotten SO LONG, too That shedding progress is just astounding, I'd never have the patience to do that. I can't get over how thick and gorgeous your hair is.

    Take care, and try not to stress out too much over schoolwork.

    That's some pretty terrific hair you've got there, LB; beautiful color and so thick. I've got to tell you, though, just for conversational purposes, that it seems a little odd to me to be collecting/keeping shed hairs. To me that would be like keeping shed skin cells or cut fingernails. On the other hand, my son once cut his hair for a job, and I kept the ponytail and braided it; not so different, I guess. It's about 8-10 inches long.

    Great job with your trim! And thanks for all the pictures as well. I am SO going to start saving my shed hairs, and make pretty braids to clip in if I want.
    Oh and I really like that ponytail style on you, as well as the different colors, I think it is pretty neat.

    Both your hair and your collection of sheddings are pretty impressive! What do you do with all those shed hairs?

    Thank's everyone for the kind words!

    I do hope to be able to post a little more when uni is over. I do have to say I don't intend to get so forum obessed as I was lat Summer either, because that's really bad and put me in uncomfortable positions. Anyways, I love posting and want to keep doing it, just not checking the baord like 20 times a day =P

    About my shedding collection, and to reply to spidermom and swanns, I do think as well that it's a little silly, but i was inspired by another member which I can't remember the name. She had some sort of promise and cutted a very long braid. I tought it was so beautyfull and artistic to have that braid and save it. So I decided to start saving my hair so I could have a braid without having to cut my hair, because that's something I would never do for the purpose ofhaving a braid, and I would never do such a promise as well.

    Either ways, it doesn't that that much time, maybe 5 minutes a day (altough I align the strands and save them while I am combing, and I do it twice a day, so it just makes the detangling process a little slower but it's ok, it would always be slow anyways =P).

    I am also loving my current lenght. I know I will love it better when my hair is all one lenght, altough I do hope that it will be longer when I reached the point of blunt ends. I am still looking forward to my goal of classic, but I don't feel in a rush anymore and I'm simply enjoying my hair. This summer I will definitly have to try new styles, as I had a conversation with my parents some days ago and I think I'm finally allowed to go and do my own thing about my hair.

    So, I definitly love my hair, so so much! I am very tired of my irregular ends tough. You just can't have everything at the same time can you? Specially when it comes to growing out long hair...

    Thank's for the comments again!

    How beautiful!
    LittleBird, your hair is amazing. The thickness is impressive.
    Collecting your shed hairs is a nice spleen, maybe you can't say goodbye because your hair is so precious for you. There's nothing wrong with that habit.
