I hope you had a good start of the week and now that it is already mid-week, you’re hopefully still super motivated especially because wednesday is always the day when weekend seems to come closer. Therefor it is time to plan how to spend it. For my part, I am going to cut my hair with one of the best girls in my life finally. I have not been to the hair dresser since months so my hair screams for a cut and some spoiling.

When I was younger I was always so afraid and nervous when the day of the hair dresser appointment has come. The reason is pretty simple, as almost all of the girls I was dreaming about having super duper long hair. Coming home from the hairdresser always ended in a disaster as every time my hair was cut way way way to much and I was so frustrated because whenever my hair grown a big part, the hair dressers cut at least the double length of what its grown. You see, every visit in a hair dresser salon was a step back in my long hair goal. Luckily four years ago I accompanied one of my girlfriends for a visit at the hair dresser of her confidence.

I remember it was the first time I heard about “hot scissors” and I could not wait to give it a try. Since then I never let my hair cut with normal scissors anymore and never ever gone to another salon anymore as I am the biggest fan of the comfy salon itself as well as of Andrea, the owner, who always does an amazing job with cutting my hair EXACTLY the length I tell her without any back talk (except if it is really necessary what was only the point once when I was so dumb to dye my hair by myself and the hair colorant was obviously not that good for my hair). Just a quick note at the end for all those who did not know, hot scissors are scissors which got heated before cutting the hair and thereby help to reduce split hair ends due to the fact that they seal the ends of the hair. The only condition you have to follow is to never use any normal scissors as logically you will cut off the sealed hair ends. As a result your last hot scissors cut is worth nothing anymore. Quite clear, right? Alright girls, I should stop talking now! I really don’t want to bore you with scissors. Just thought some of you might have the same problem of fast splitting hair and be interested to give the hot scissors a try. Enjoy your day!
