Hair in March – plus a haircare update

New hairlength and overall new life requires a haircare update as my hair changed significantly. So here is what you have asked for so often: a hair care update.

After the big cut in January almost everything of damaged, brittle and thinned ends are gone. My hair is still on the thinner side with around 6cm of ponytailcircumference, but it is healthy now. 🙂 As I have regrowth at all lengths from 8-10cm down to the tips and my hair structure is naturally wavy (2c which I usually brush out to 1c) I have a strong rendency to frizzy hair which looks all dry even when it is super soft and nice. But: here comes haircare. 🙂 In my case we talk about a lot of care. I am a lazy girl when it comes to haircare, but well my hair requires a lot of attention if I want to have it pretty (I do!) therefore I compensate lazyness with discipline. I look at this topic just like the necessity of brushing my teeth. This too is nothing I do with passion but as I know it is important (especially as teeth don’t regrow like hair does!) I do it with all the needed dedication.

A boy! Or wait, no… a girl. A boy? Yes? No. Hmmm. Tricky.

Colour seasons part 2: The 12-Season-System (and the 16-Season-System!)

And here we are with more details than the 4-season-system could give to us! Are you ready to level up to the colour professionals? 😉

We started with the 4-Season-System “recently”, I meand, when my nauseousness was still at bay, but now I managed to finish this article here too.

Babybump weeks 13, 14, 15 – pukeweeks

Anyways. we have to celebrate a bit! The first trimester is done!

Here I am with a little baby update. Big change first. my English translations will be way shorter from now on as I just don’t have the time and energy to keep up the long translations, especially as over 90% of my readers are German. I am sorry but do my best to keep you informed and still have a friendly tone. 🙂 Instagram is way more English, by the way.

Just to let you know

I guess most of you already know: I am pregnant, momentarily in week 14. Baby is all fine but unfortunately my own health and energy is low with nauseousness throwing up, headaches and exhaustion. No need to worry, I can bare with that but really saying “Oh no!” und “Get well soon!” is appropriate.

Hairlength in February – after!

One month after the cut I have some thoughts to share. Do I miss my old length? Yes and no.

First of all it was and is stunning how different the reactions of other people were. Here on the blog almost everybody wrote down her congratulations and told me – which made me so happy! – that my other topics are even more interesting than my hair articles. Yeah! Thank you!

Colourtyping part 1: introduction and the 4-season-system

Some topics are part of your whole life, others are more like a boomerang: When you think you let go of them, they return.

Colourtypes are in a way both of it for me. I already wrote about them before, but honestly, these articles were no good ones.  But now I am pretty shure that I worked through the theory and really understood it. This is why I explain the colour types/colour seasons to you again today and in the following weeks, first the 4-Season-System, than the 12-Season-System. There were some aspects which I had to make clear to me and really made all the difference – and I am pretty shure they will to you too.

The overthinker

I am over it. I am over overthinking. Thinking about my hair and a cut – or maybe not?

I wrote a novel. And I am not talking about “Wer ist Jakob Winter” here. Unfortunately not. I wrote a novel article about my ongoing thougts about whether I should or should not cut my hair. About what my hair is and what it can be – and what it can’t. What I want it to be which is not possible: being very long and thick or at least no longer thin. I wrote about this dilemma many longhaired ladies go through after some years of growing  when for some of them   – like me – it becomes more an more obvious that dream and reality don’t match and probably won’t ever do. I wrote about patience and care, about hope and waiting and years passing by and so so many thoughts in my head. And I wrote about wanting to be the best me. Not a version of me that might be better one day, but now. I wrote about the whish to be positive and therefore do the best for me and my hair I can: loving it for what it is without envy, without longing for somebody else’s hair identity. I am the one who loves the colour seasons and body types as they help to make life easier and more beautiful, a better version of each of us in a very simple way. And I wrote about finally being fed up with waiting for something which might never happen to me: a real Rapunzel’s mane. About looking at myself in the mirror, mild and friendly and just accepting that for now my dream of long and healthy hair is again just a dream. I did not kill this wish, I just brought it to sleep for the next years until maybe my hair will have grown down thick and healthyly  – or not and then I finally have a hairstyle doing the best for me it can. I also wrote about you, who I was afraid to lose, if I decided to cut. But now I am shure that you will stay, because you reflect what my blog already became. Haselnussblond is by far more than only hair, my topics are deeper and smarter than that and so are you. You are always loyal, friendly, communicative and well yes, just my community which I appreciate so much. And so finally I did it. I cut. And it feels free, what is the best my hair can do for me at the moment.

Let go of what no longer serves you.

So my hair might no longer be special in any sense. But I am a confident and positive woman my smile does not depend on my hair.  But of course I will smile widely if I ever can come back of my dream to tailbone length. Maybe. Who knows? I don’t and so I worked with what I see and know and am happy to finally finally have hair which does the best for me it can. No thinned lengths, no hairloss leftovers, no curling iron damage, just my silky fine hair with an even volume and the colour I love. Me. And free. 😀
