FOTD & Hair Update

I'm a very lucky girlfriend! I was having a hard time and to cheer me up, Sam took me shopping around Colchester. You know if a girl is very upset if she doesn't see anything she wants to buy (he was genuinely shocked). We got to Williams & Griffiths and I had a look around the MAC counter for some eyeshadows. After some advice from the lovely counter girl, Sam told me whatever I want, he'll get if it puts a smile back on my face...and it did the job! The three pots are used above along with a light line of black gel eyeliner. As much as I love the colours, I think I may need to invest in a couple more good quality eye brushes as I don't think the ones I have really did the colours justice. I'm a very happy bunny to have such a lovely boyfriend.

So I went to my hairdressers yesterday to sort out the state I call my hair! I have been very naughty and haven't been looking after it as well as I needed to therefore I have made a conscience decision to work on my hair. I've been dying for longer hair so I have created and decided to take on the hair challenge! From now on, there are some hair commandments I shall keep without fail to attempt to get the luscious locks I have long desired for.

1. I will keep a weekly record of my progress.
2. I will keep getting six-weekly trims.
3. I will not use heat on my hair more than 3 times a week.
4. When using heat, I will always use heat protection.
5. I will use hair mayonnaise once a week under a hair hood for 20 minutes.
6. I will only brush my hair once in the morning & once at night with a natural bristle brush.  
7. I will drink more water, take vitamins and ensure I have had my 5 a day to promote hair growth.
8. In the sun, I will put appropriate hair protection in my hair.
  9. I will loosely tie my hair back when I go to bed at night
10. Whenever I wear my hair up, I will not tie it too tight or comb it too roughly.

After three months, I will comment on whether any or all of these commandments have improved the health and aesthetics of my hair.
Week One:
Hair Length 33cm
Hair mayo applied.
Trim given.
Straightened twice, heat protection applied twice.  

I tag you to undertake this challenge and see how much healthier your hair looks and feels.
