Unboxing My Boxy Charm December 2018 'Tis the Sea-Sun | The Highs and the Lows

Better late than never, so they say. True? I don't know. I do know that I'm scandalously late in presenting the December Boxy Charm beauty subscription box.

Procrastinator, Am I

One reason why I've procrastinated in posting this is simply because the December box wasn't the biggest hit, with me. Not because the products are bad ones. They aren't! It's just that the majority of the products are either not appropriate for my skin type or not to my personal taste. I'll explain.

How to Trim Your Own Hair at Home

how to trim your own hair at home

The End is Near

The seemingly endless journey that I've been on to purge my tresses of the old, bleach damaged length at long last is drawing to a close. This New Year's Eve I did the last (I hope!) of the large, drastic trims - chops, really! that have been so necessary to rid me of long, over bleached and badly damaged length and I think that from now on, small trims should help me maintain my hair in much better condition while it grows. Or until I decide to do something to it, again! That, I'm afraid is not outside the realm of possibility as I can't seem to leave my hair be. I am always wanting to change it.

All of the trims I've done over the last couple of years have been self trims. I just don't see the point of paying for a salon visit if I can do a simple, blunt cut trim in the comfort of my own home, for free. Self trimming long hair is very easy and quick, once you know how. This is a perfect method to use to trim someone else's hair, also.  I learned this technique years ago from Feye's Hair Trimming Instructions. If you'd like to know how I easily and confidently trim my own hair, at home and get a consistent result every time, read on.
