Fail-Styles: How I Cut my Hair...By Mistake!

-_- I am so glad I am writing this post four days after the fact because I was so mad at myself for cutting my hair while it was still in the Senegalese twists. Who does that right?! What was I trying to do?

Honestly I was trying to achieve the short Victoria-Beckham-Jada-Pickett-Set-it-Off Style with the senegalese twists. I should of immediately known after doing a google search of 'short' senegalese twists that this style is not easily achievable.

To preface, I don't really know how to do my own hair much less cut anything! But I was feeling daring Sunday night to try to cut this hair while in synthetic braids and I was brash and ultimately really stupid to attempt something like this.

I ended cutting off like 2-2.5 inches of my hair and in addition the twists started to unravel in the back even though I was burning the ends. It was a hot mess and I just took out the twists all together and gazed in horror at the lopsided, haphazard cut I did on myself. To add insult to injury the cut wasn't even the same length on both sides!

After taking a few deep breaths and having a torturous sleep that night, I was fine. Length has never been a goal of mine but more so health and as I washed and deep conditioned my hair that day I was uplifted by the fact I combed through all my hair without issue - mostly because I cut off all the dead and split ends. It is a new beginning (granted a lopsided one) but I hope with my new hair routine it will keep my ends healthy from this point forward. #silverlining
