Although we might not realize it, our attitude towards a new hairstyle and whether we think we deserve one or not plays an important role when trying to find a new look hair style. If you’ve been having trouble making the choice between a style, or whether to have your hair changed at all, it may actually be your attitude that is holding you back.

Scenario 1: I Deserve to Have a New Hairstyle

Well of course you deserve to have a new hairstyle! It’s good to see that you feel this way. A new hairstyle will make you feel even better about yourself, refreshed and new, and this will obviously have a positive result with anybody that is around you, such as your spouse, family, or friends.

How it affects you finding your new hairstyle: It is said that “attitude affects hairstyles.” Ensure that you will find the hairstyle that you want and deserve!!

Scenario 2: I Deserve a New Hairstyle, but Only After Everyone Else’s Needs and Wants Are Met First

It’s nice to see that you are a very caring and responsible person. There are for sure many things that are more important than getting a new hairstyle. There are mortgage repayments, food costs, school fees, health care costs, motor vehicle expenses, power, and water, just to name a few. These things are essential. They are important things that need constant attention and addressing or else problems are bound to occur.

For most people, it’s a struggle to just stay on top of their needs. Why else would you go to work or take that second job? It’s all because you have commitments to meet, perhaps dependants to provide for, and as a responsible person you set out to accomplish this goal. But now let’s move over to the second part of the question where the word “wants” is used, “Everyone else’s wants first before yours”.

Wants and Needs

need-a-new-hairstyle-for-long-hair

Wants are different from needs. They are things that are not necessary or needed for short-term survival. Things that include games, music, entertainment, new clothes, and even find new hairstyles. So long as a “want” is not at the expense of depriving the needs of others, then it’s okay to do things that make you feel better.

Do you feel it’s wrong to indulge yourself or feel better until everybody else’s wants are fulfilled first? Why? Aren’t you entitled to the same as everyone else? Understand that:

  • Everybody has a right to do and experience things that make them happy.
  • An individual cannot continually rely on getting their pleasure from only seeing everyone else happy all of the time (the doormat syndrome). In all probability, this will not make you happy in the long run.
  • If you occasionally indulge in things (a new hairstyle) that make you feel better, then this has a positive effect on you and everyone around you. Your wants are just as important as everyone else’s. How you feel affects you and everyone else around you.

new-hairstyle-affect-personality

How it affects you finding your new hairstyle: You need to give yourself more credit and put your wants on the same table like everyone else. You are just as important and deserve what everyone else does. You can find new hairstyle that suits your personality.

Scenario 3: I Really Don’t Deserve to Have a New Hairstyle

You should introspect and try to understand what makes you think you don’t deserve something as simple and basic as a new hairstyle. More often than not, there aren’t any plausible reasons or contexts that warrant your belief that you don’t deserve a new hairstyle. This literally translates to – you don’t deserve to feel good about yourself!

Self-Critical State

You need to understand that what we are dealing with here is your current emotional state of mind that believes that you are not important and undeserving of a simple thing such as a new hairstyle that could quite probably make you feel better. You are not alone in feeling this way; there are many people all over the world that undergo similar phases and think the very same way in those times as you. Remember, attitude affects hairstyles and your personality too.

We recommend you try and understand why you are feeling this way. Is it because of years of self-neglect where you actually now believe you are worthless? When people listen to their inner dialogue and they constantly hear this negative recording that tells them how unworthy they are of happiness over and over, in time it becomes a frightening reality. Your inner thoughts dictate your behaviour and state of mind.

Toxic Environment

If you have people around you telling you that you are not worthy of happiness then that qualifies as emotional abuse. Understand that it’s not right if they are trying to control your thoughts and behaviour. By agreeing to all their demands or opinions and behaving the way they want you to, you in effect give them power and control over you.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.  – Eleanor Roosevelt.

fix-a-toxic-environment

Is this negative feeling because of a bad past experience that you have not yet dealt with? There could be some bad things that happened to you a long time ago that now make you feel unworthy of any indulgence or happiness. If this is the case, then you should seek professional help to deal with the problem. The first step is to acknowledge that you do have a problem that is causing you distress, then to seek the proper help. Only then can you start to think and feel positive about yourself.

choose-new-hairstyle-for-you

How it affects you finding your new hairstyle: You need to question yourself and then try to understand why you feel that you don’t deserve a new hairstyle. You do deserve a new look hairstyle. Unfortunately, unless you sort out your negative inner feelings, a new hairstyle will probably only make you feel guilty and unhappy once it’s done.

This answer depends on your lifestyle, hairs length, and hair type.

For example, if you live a sporty lifestyle you will need to shampoo your hair every single day and so will need to consider a hairstyle and home haircare regime that will help facilitate this.

On the other hand, if you work inside out of the elements, have normal to dry hair and scalp on short hair, you should only be shampooing it 2-3 times per week.

There was a time not so long ago that every young lady (sorry guys no disrespect) was told to brush their hair 100 times in the morning and another 100 times at night with a good natural bristle brush.

This was very important for long hair types as it ensured that

  • Any knots or tangles where brushed out
  • That sebum from the scalp was distributed to the mid length and ends, protecting the hair with natural oils.
  • The brushing on the scalp created good circulation to the follicle to help with better hair growth.

The art of brushing hair was sadly lost back in the eighties and nineties when perms and brushing were not a good match.

It is a good idea to get your hair trimmed by your hairdresser every 4-6 weeks.

Regular trims ensure that;

  • The shape of your haircut will be maintained easily
  • Any damaged or split ends can be cut off, visit by visit so that they don’t creep further up the hair shaft.
  • You will be able to style your hair far more easily
  • It’s an opportunity to treat yourself on a more regular basis.

The short answer is NO. The longer answer is no don’t razor cut wavy or curly hair unless you are wanting it to frizz, look wiry, like it has split ends. The reason is that razor cutting slices hair on an angle, and also removes only some (not all) of the hair, and when hair is wavy or curly and razor cut, the shorter pieces with less weight spring up between longer pieces making a bushy, frizzy effect.

The thing about bangs is most people have tried them at least once in their lifetime and have either had a great experience or a really bad one.

What’s important to remember about bangs is that they do have an effect on hairstyles and other important elements such as;

  • Straight across bangs halve the vertical length in a person face shape, thus they suit people with oblong, diamond, or narrow face types.
  • Curtain bangs with a middle part actually add length to face shapes, suiting round and wide faces best.
  • Side swept angled bangs are great on angular face shape such as square and broader jawbones.
  • Straight across bangs draw attention to the eyes.
  • Bangs are an easy way to do something different without having a complete full makeover.

There a number of ways to make straight hair change to curly or wavy, however they can be grouped into two categories.

  1. Non-Permanent, using thermal appliances such as hot irons, curling tongs, hot rollers, or curling the hair when it’s wet on round shapes (rollers overnight) will change the texture of hair when it dries. These new curls on your once straight hair will only last until moisture gets inside your hair shaft and is why you are told to stay away from humidity when you have your hair curled. The change in your straight hair to curls is on the Hydrogen bonds only (outside) and so not permanent.
  2. Permanent, using chemicals that go into your hair and rearrange the sulphur bonds, known as perming. Straight hair is stretched and moulded around a roller, chemically altered, and then set in place in new formations or curves, round shapes that we know as curls. This can be made straight again by using chemicals to drag the hair straight again, however moisture or simply washing your hair will not make permed curly hair straight on its own.

  • Long curly hair tends to behave better due to how gravity weighs it down, making it tame and looking amazing, however it does take more work to keep it healthy and looking great

Naturally coarse wiry hair is what many people are born with unless you have damaged your hair from overusing chemicals, heat appliances, or the environment.

The hair can feel dry because of how the cuticle sticks out at 45 degree angles, and also because of this, it is easy for coarse curly hair to actually dry out.

Yes, if you don’t cut off, remove the split ends they will travel up the hair shaft and cause more damage due to how the inside layer (the cortex) is exposed to all elements and the sun. Cutting split ends seals the hair, and is actually the best way to get longer hair because as it grows it won’t break off.

Category: hair advice

many miracle treatments are on the market that claim to have properties that will seal your split ends, however I am here to tell you that they are of a cosmetic nature only, filling the hair with silicones mostly to make it look and feel better. While some of these products will indeed help protect the hair from the elements, the split end needs to be amputated, cut off and removed as the best cause of action.
