But I keep coming in contact with this cause. In many different ways has it showed up in my life, from personal hurting, to “randomly” coming across links, to a friend of mine (without my having told her what I was struggling with but I know now that she guessed hah) giving me a book to read (Redeeming Love), since we’ve talked about that she has recently also been sending me links to organisations and videos.
we spent last night talking about it too, as I took her aside to share with her THIS GIRL’s TUMBLR and how troubled it left me after having read her story.
also my friend gave me two pieces of paper she just happened to carry with her in her bag, on which is information about both the global and national situation of human trafficking here in the Netherlands.
it just makes me furious and I’m passionate about making a difference.
but also Christine Caine, founder of a21 campaign
and I realize why: I not only get split ends, but I also get those knot thingies where the hair just falls off about 5 cm from the end!
I don’t understand why my hair would get damaged so much, because I never or only in extremely rare occasions blow dry, straighten or curl my hair.
but one thing I can think of is that I hadn’t had a proper haircut in ages. and so that naturally over time the ends had died ;P and that when I got a proper haircut in November, she didn’t cut off enough length because it looked like my hair wasn’t super dead while really it was but somehow it just didn’t look like it was? I’m pretty sure of it since I noticed split ends pretty soon after the haircut.
but now i’m bummed out cause I only just got a haircut so that’s money to spend sooner than expected and also it means I’ll probably have to cut off quite some length and it’ll take so long to grow it back but on the other hand; now it’s dead and not growing and I need it to be healthy and long and that’s not happening if I don’t get a proper trim, so, yeah.
also I’ve bought leave-in conditioner, which is nice and I’ll use that. it smells nice too :):)
