When I look at these photos I feel like my hair has grown really fast. In August 2015 (at our wedding) it was super long (there is a photo on my About me page). Then we moved to DC and I wanted change so I chopped it off into a “lob” or a long bob in around November, 2015. That was before I started my blog, so I don’t have any photos of how short it was. Then I dyed it blonde in March (remember this post?)
Fast forward 6 months later, and it is already pretty long! I don’t have any deep dark secrets to explain why my hair grows so fast. I take biotin supplements (just CVS brand) for healthy hair, skin and nails once daily. And I try to eat vegetables with at least 2 meals a day, whether it is cut up peppers and cucumbers as a snack, or a salad for lunch and a side of veggies for dinner. But I always make of point of eating something green. Every single day.
I don’t use any fancy shmancy shampoos. I wash my hair about 3 times a week and when I do I massage my scalp really well. But that’s mostly because I use a lot of dry shampoo and hairspray and I’m trying to get it all out. I drink a lot of water. At least 2,500mL a day.
After looking at these pics I also realized (unfortunately) that a)I desperately need more hair oil and b)I need to get back into my vigorous exercise routine. I’ll give myself a little break because I was super hung over when we took these photos, so I was probably a little puffy. That’s one of the interesting things about taking outfit photos so often. I realize that I look different depending on how I feel, what I ate, what I drank, or if I didn’t drink enough water. And as time passes, I see changes in myself. Amirite, bloggers?
Now for the outfit. I picked up this trench vest from Shein, as I desperately wanted one but didn’t want to spend much on a trendy item. I really like it! I steamed the shizzz out of it (as you might see me doing on my Snapchat: RoxanneBirnbaum lately) and I think it looks great! I tied it in the back and left it open for this look. I am wearing a small and it fits perfectly.
