Since a new Miss Amyable era has approached, not only my usual Monday posts but also the #ThoughtfulThursday is going to be all about the hair! (Which you should already know if you’ve read this post). What’s going to stay the same though, is the fact that I’ll basically just ramble (well, in written form…) about some hair-related stuff and focus on “How To” posts instead of hairstyles, tutorials or else, what I’m going to publish every Monday.
But now, let’s start!
Today I want to talk (okay, write) about a topic every girl (or at least most girls) knows quite well: The hair envy.
How often have you imagines yourself with different hair, saw a girl with an amazing mane walk past you or just cursed your locks?
I know the feeling, trust me. You just wish to have someone elses hair because everyones hair is just so much prettier than yours, right?
It’s a weird but quite common phenomenon that we human beings always want to have the things we can’t get. Concerning hair it’s even more common. If it’s the colour, texture or lenght, we always have some things to criticize about our own mane.
The good news: It is possible to overcome it!
I personally always struggled with my hair and needed a whole lotta time (many many years tbh…) to get comfortable with how my hair is. But today I can proudly say that I truly love my chocolate-brown, beach-waved, messy hair and I would never go back to hating it like I used to.
The question you’re now probably asking yourself is how?
In my opinion every hairtype is beautiful and naturally really pretty. Also do I think that we are born with the hair that suits us, so why change it? The only hard thing is to care for your natural hair the right way. Every hairtype needs to be treated differently and if you think your natural hair looks ugly you might be caring wrong for it. (If you want to know how to treat wavy hair, go this way.)
Also, if you change your hair all the time, like dying it, bleaching it, curling it, flat-ironing it, it’s going to be damaged in no time and sooner or later you will wish you’ve never treated your hair that way. Because if your hair is damaged, I guarantee you: It’s not going to look flattering anymore. No hair in the world looks good after processing it with chemicals and heat.
So in order to fall in love with your hair, it’s important to keep it all natural, treat it right and be confident about it! And as soon as you’re in love, you’re never going to be envious again!
