Missing

I haven’t written anything here for a while. When I do write something it’s meaningless posts. I’m not stopping to write but for a while I have decided to only use Instagram. I would be excited if you would join me there! My account is cecilia.helin.39. Take care!

Haircut

I cut my bangs myself between hair salon appointments. I think it’s a waste of money to have someone do it for you. You pay a lot for almost nothing. Or nothing………

I wanted you to see how skillfull I am when it comes to haircuts. I always cut too much! Now my bangs is half the length it should be. My hair grows fast but for a while I will look like I’ve put a bowl on my head and cut around it’s edges! Oh well.

Hair things

I wrote a while ago in “Showers” about how often we shower and wash our hair. Then I wrote that some wash their hair once a week. I could never do that because my hair gets greasy in one day. I have to wash it everyday. I get why not everyone does it everyday. Now I’ve seen a woman online that washes her hair once a month! She has very long hair.

Today’s newly washed hair.

I find these things interesting. I can’t even picture my hair after one month without washing it! Greasy wouldn’t be the right word to describe it. It would look like it was wet. If I touched it………..I don’t wanna think about it. This once a month hair washing woman has like I wrote very long hair. She had her hair up in different hairstyles during the month between washes. I don’t get it. Why have long hair when you never show it? She had her hair in a hairstyle with braids “tied” up on her head. You would never know how long her hair is because she never lets it out to hang “freely”.

No make up however the hair is clean.

One thing among many why I couldn’t wash my hair more than once a month is the smell. I have greasy hair. It smells dirty after only one day. I know many don’t wash their hair everyday and it doesn’t smell anything. My hair would reak to the high heavens If I had gone one month without washing it. And the build up on my scalp would be disgusting. For a while I only washed my hair with water every other day. I used schampoo one day and water only the second day. It didn’t take my scalp long to get this thick disgusting layer of white stuff on it. Think what one month WITHOUT any water or schampoo would do!

Showers

First of all I don’t know why I decided to write about this!

I don’t know about you but I shower and wash my hair everyday. I have read lots of things were people discuss this. I got interested in how it is out there. Do people shower everyday or less? I think many don’t shower everyday. At leastI know it’s common to not wash the hair everyday. I get why you don’t do it. Many people have dry hair and can’t wash it often. And I think it’s good for the hair to have some “rest days”. Today you use dry shampoo if you want your hair to feel fresh between washes. And some have hair that don’t get greasy until after a couple of days after washing it. I don’t think everyone shower everyday either. The ones I know about that don’t shower everyday do it every other day. I don’t judge any of you if you don’t shower or wash your hair everyday! It’s up to you. What I have a problem with is how people describe what they do instead and how often they think you should clean themselves.

First we have those that shower once or so a week. I think that’s a bit extreme to be honest. I’ve read that they use wet cotton to clean their private parts after every visit to the toilet. Isn’t it easier to take a quick shower everyday instead? It takes lots of time if you’re doing that everytime you visit the bathroom. And you probably clean you armpits everyday with some water from the sink. They say that they don’t smell but let me tell you. I’ve smelled unwashed people miles away. Not miles but you know what I mean. There have been people that have spread their odour through out a whole bus! I think it’s those that never shower and never use cotton pads with every toilet visit.

A hair dresser said in an article that you should only wash your hair once a week. She almost made fun of people that washed it more often. She said “put your hair in a bun when it gets oily.” I could never do that. I could wash my hair less if I didn’t workout as much as I do. I workout almost everyday and sweat like crazy. I would feel disgusting if I just put it in a bun day after day. My hair would be smelly and so oily that I wouldn’t be out in public! And the hairdresser showed her hair after a week without washing it…….. I can’t put in words how it looked. You put your hair in a bun girl because you think it’s such a good idea to wash it once a week!

Clean hair.

At the same time I also think that we’re sometimes are hysterical when it comes to keeping ourselves smelling good. There are deodorants for your private parts and some wash their hair more than once a day everyday. There has to be a “middle way” to go when it comes to hygiene. There now I’ve written how I think. What do you think?

Forgot this. During periods in my life where my depression had been crazy I didn’t shower for days. I didn’t have the will to do anything then and I didn’t go out. This is meant for people who don’t suffer from mental illness. And I’m sorry if I offended anyone didn’t mean to do that in any way.

Hair oil

I have a very tangle prone hair. When I wash my hair I use shampoo and conditioner. But even so my hair often is one big tangle when I get out of the shower. I have to use some kind of hair oil.

I’ve tried many different oils! Everything from coconut oil to argan oil. Coconut oil made my hair greasy. I used the smallest amount and my hair looked like I hadn’t wash it in days. I’ve used “coconut infused” oil and “everyday coconut oil” but I didn’t use it for long because of the greasy feeling. Everyone is saying argan oil is liquid gold however not for me. It makes my hair greasy like coconut oil do. To save money I bought argan oil a while ago but even if I only use a small amount it is making my hair oily.

The best hair oil I think I’ve ever used is “ellwo” repairing oil. It costs lots but because you only need a small amount it usually takes me a couple of months before I have to buy a new one. The best thing about it is the smell and that it makes my hair look healthy and it smells wonderful. It smells like red berries. The textur is a little thick but I don’t care about that. I use it when my hair is wet.

I think you can find it in many shops online. I buy it for 24,90 euros. It cost some but you get a lot for your money. If you get tangles or have “wild” hair you should try it. You’ll be surprised how good it is. Try it.

Here sometime

I want to say a big Thank you to all my new and old followers for reading my blog. For the moment I’m into Instagram big time. I love to write here but because my depression is hard at the moment and I find Instagram easier because you can write shorter post. I write lots there. I’m not saying I think writing blog posts are hard but now I get tired whatever I do and that’s why I’m just here sometimes.

On my Instagram I write about the same things I do here.

A thing that I posted on Instagram.

Sugar free sugar. “Our sugar free cookies contain 2 cups of sugar.”

If you want to follow me on Instagram it’s cecilia.helin.39.

I’ll post this in every cathegory so it reaches all of you.

See you there or sometimes here.

Vitamins

I try to eat healthy. I do but I take vitamins everyday. I think you can eat healthy but still not get enough nutrients. Like it often says on the vitamin “can” you shouldn’t replace a healthy diet with vitamins. I don’t know why they put that on it. We know we have to eat! Anyway it’s hard to get every vitamin with food.

There are vitamins and vitamins. Always make sure you know the content of the vitamins you buy. One type of vitamin that’s hard to know which one to buy are the hair and skin ones. I have struggled with hair loss and acne a lot and I’ve tried more vitamins for that than I want to think about. My acne eventually healed with prescription medicine but my hair loss is harder to battle. Vitamins are almost the only option and it’s hard to find the right ones. I’ve tried almost every vitamin available but I have never felt like they’ve helped. That’s until I began taking silicon tablettes. I take two hair and skin supplements but the silicon tablettes made me loose less hair. There are not many multi vitamins that contain silicon and I have to buy them separate. All of you suffering from hair loss try that vitamin. I know they might not suit everone but it’s worth trying.

I know the picture makes you sea sick with the can laying on the side.

Hairdresser

I made a drop in appointment in a hair salon a while ago. I often cut my hair myself but I wanted a professional hairdresser to do it that time. Before this haircut I had a professional hairdresser cut my hair too but she left my hair uneven and I didn’t know how to sort it out myself. For this haircut in question I went in to a salon I didn’t know anything about and asked if they could give me a hair cut then and there. They could and I sat down in the hair cut “chair”. I first only wanted them to give me a bang. I love having bangs because it makes the hair look better without you doing anything. When I talked to the hairdresser about the haircut I felt like cutting my while hair and asked if she had the time to do it. The hairdresser said she didn’t but a colleague of her could.

My hairdresser swept in like she thought she was the queen. She began  strangling me with the hair cut “cape” they use to protect your clothes. I could hardly breath. I didn’t say anything about it because I was happy she could give me a haircut. I had barely got used to the cape when the hairdresser without warning began spraying my hair with something. Or should I say rather drowning my hair with something. I got it everywhere and my eyes felt like someone had put them on fire. I also got some gel in my hair. I said my scalp is sensitive and asked if she could be careful. The hairdresser said something like she wasn’t careful and she took out the round brush. Not the round brush! They use that for the thing I can’t take, the blow dry. I haven’t told you I had washed ny hair before this and the hairdresser had to dry my hair. She began hurting my head with the brush and blowdryer. I wanted to cry because it was that bad.

When she had damaged my scalp with the blowdryer she began damage it with the scissor(s?). I don’t know how but even the haircut was painful. She cut my hair for a long time and I knew I shouldn’t have set my foot in the salon. I have thick hair and if you cut big layers in it it doesn’t come out nice. She cut big layers in the hair. And she cut it uneven. And it wasn’t cheap. I payed for nothing. My hair has two hair styles now. One short one long.

This has got nothing to do with it. I couldn’t find a better hairdresser image.

Hair oil

Before anything the picture is a “bit” unfocused. I don’t know about you but I often don’t find the haircare I want. I love essential oils in haircare cause they can make any hair type better. I never find any hair care with the essential oils I want. When I find products with oils it doesn’t feel good. For example I used nettle haircare but that made my hair into a big tangle.

A while ago I began mixing hair products with essential oils myself. I couldn’t have made a better choice. There are oils for everything. I have oily hair and tea tree oil normalizes that. I use it in the shampoo but not conditioner. It’s oil and it can make the hair greasy if you use it in everything. I find lemon oil the best in skincare.

I don’t mix oil with shampoo in the shampoo bottle. Then you don’t know how much oil to put in. I mix shampoo and oil in a coffee cup instead. I do it with every use. I don’t use that much oil. It can harm your hair if you put lots of oil on it.

I buy essential oils from Organic makers.

Caring

I think hair is big business. When you don`t feel fine about your hair you`re miserable. It doesn`t mean you think about your hair all the time but if it`s not what you like it`s hard.

I`ve cut my hair myself for a long time. I do it because it`s expensive to go to a hairdresser. I only trim my ends and to pay 100 dollars to do that is a lot. I do it too because of the way hairdressers treat my hair. They always want cut layers in my hair. That can be wonderful if your hair looks good in it. My hair looks like I`ve got two different hairstyles with layers. Hair dressers say “I cut layers in your hair” but they could say “you get two hairstyles in one cut”. My hair is more than straight and that`s why layers looks like that, layers.

The thing I don`t want in a hair salon is a blow out. It feels like they pull out every hair. I say that I don`t want that round brush tearing apart my hair in the blow dryer but they can`t help them selves. They say they will dry a little but then they get their brush and dryer and make my scalp burn. I get many demand a blow out however I can`t stand it.

I use oil on my hair because I have tangles. When I don`t put oil on I can`t brush my hair because of the tangles. My favorite hair products come from Marc Anthony. This oil Repairing Macadamia Oil Treatment makes my hair soft and without tangles. It lasts a long time.
