The Scissor Rebellion - The Kit

Happy (almost) weekend Not A Model readers!

Before most of us take a well-deserved break and head into the most glorious days of the week (Saturday & Sunday) I'd like to share my latest hair post from The Kit. It involves a heavenly new hair mask and my resistance to chop my mane.

Enjoy the read, and get ready for tons of new updates next week, including a beauty giveaway :)

The Scissor Rebellion

I really need a haircut. 

Okay, so why don’t I just get one, you ask?

Maybe it’s laziness (my new hair dresser is too far, I work too late) maybe it’s frugality (a haircut is expensive, I prefer to spend my money on overpriced avocados) or maybe it’s related to hair trauma? I received a terrible haircut in April (think curly hair triangle mullet) and I haven’t touched it since.

Usually, when I get a bad haircut—and I’ve had my fair share (like the time my grandmother decided to cut me curly bangs in grade two, before my first communion) I steer away from any scissor-happy Edward until I’m really, really desperate.

You see, I’d totally be content to let my hair grow out until it reaches Diana Ross status, but my ends are really brittle. My hair slurps up product faster than a sick child with a bowl of homemade chicken soup. While dry, disheveled hair was cool in college, it just doesn’t cut it (no pun intended) as a young, working PR professional.

While I’m still holding out on that haircut, I’ve found a temporary solution. The Body Shop’s Rainforest Radiance Hair Butter is the perfect trick to condition and smooth those coarse ends with an intensive deep-conditioning treatment. As per usual, I love products without too many chemicals, so the eco-conscious formula leaves my hair fresh and my mind clear.

Now if only those avocados weren’t from California.
