It’s not the first time for me to cut my own hair. I did this in college to save 500 pesos(about CAD$13). Although, this is way cheaper than USD$55 in Lebanon I still feel that I can allocate that 500 pesos towards food or road trips with my friends. Don’t get me wrong, a great haircut is always the best, and Lebanese hairdressers are great because they take hair and make up pretty seriously – they’d even go to Paris or Italy to be properly certified. Hence, the $55 tag.
I only wanted a bob cut and a lot of my mates cut their own hair too because it’s also “art”.
Fast forward today, after so many years I want to just give my hair a couple of inches of trim. That’s still safe and will save me around CAD$35 + tip here in Ottawa. I’ve watched this youtube video to help me get started:
And now, my turn…
It’s amazing how a simple trim takes 5 years off your look and how my face also seemed brighter instantly. Because my hair grows back pretty quickly despite it being fine in texture, I will need to do this again in 3 – 4 months.
Next step is to “detox” my hair because it has become dry though my scalp is oily. It’s just bad and I think the cause if product build-up from a leave-on conditioner spray that my brother-in-law left here. I found it handy for smoothing my hair but I think the more I use it, the more I need it every time.
I will probably scour Shopper’s Drug Mart of Sephora later on for a good hair mask.
