Other than a brief stint in my early twenties I have always had a fringe ranging from the bowl style cut as a child to the long sweeping emo side fringe as a teenager and for the past five-six year’s I’ve rocked a full fringe. Over the past few month’s I’ve fallen out of love with my fringe for a variety of reasons including how hot it gets as my hair is thick, how it’s the part of my hair which gets the greasiest and how it shortens the look of my face so after some chats with my hairdresser I’ve decided to grow it out but I forgot how tough the process is.
I have bobby pins everywhere
I never really used bobby pins before because I had no need but I recently bought a box as I was going to need to pin my fringe back as a parting or a side fringe and these damn things seem to have worked their way everywhere from my bedroom, dressing room and living room to my handbag, work desk, and even the shower. I totally get it now when people say that they disappear as I have no idea where they go sometimes.
I have to bother with my eyebrows now
Before my fringe would cover my eyebrows so while I liked to keep them neat I didn’t maintain them anywhere near as much as I should but now they’re on full show so I have to spend way more time making sure they look presentable. I just pluck my eyebrows but now it’s a going to be a weekly job just keeping them looking their best.
I realized how dry my forehead is
I’m so bad and because my forehead used to be covered I’d forget all about it during my skincare routine which means now I am realizing how dry it got under the flop of my hair. I’m desperately trying to hydrate it because I’m finding my foundation just doesn’t sit all that well on it at the moment. One thing which I am using on both my forehead and the rest of my face is the SENSEE Hot and Cold Ultrasonic Skin Tightening Facial Toner* which is designed to help with wrinkles which is one worry I have about my forehead alongside reducing redness and eye bags. Just using it for a few minutes it gives my skin an instant refresh and a glow and it helps with moisturizer absorption something my forehead needs a lot of at the moment. When hot the brush softens and relaxes the muscles to increase blood circulation, smooth wrinkles and activate cell regrowth, while when cold it helps to relieve skin fatigue, redness, and puffiness, so the perfect two in one.
