Shampoo bars

A few days ago I realised that I only had 1 bar of Chagrin Valley Nettle shampoo and 1/2 bar of Rosemary Lavender left. With my hair, 1 bar typically lasts for 8 washes. This means that I have approximately 12 washes left before I'm out of shampoo bars. I usually wash every 3-4 days, or whenever I feel like it. Let's just make it easy and say twice a week. 12 washes, 2 per week means that my shampoo bars will last for 6 weeks. 

I order my shampoo bars online, because no shops here carry the sort of super fancy, natural, chemical-free stuff I like to cleanse my hair with. Since these things come from abroad, shipping could take some time. I'm also a very lazy and forgetful person. If I don't act quickly, there's a risk that I may run out of shampoo bars!

This is why I decided to spend $49,95 on shampoo bars from SweetCreekHerbs. Well, half of that was shipping, but it was still quite a bit of money spent on shampoo. But! This was a package deal of 5 shampoo bars, so I actually saved money! And with 5 shampoo bars, I should have enough to wash my hair twice a week for 15 weeks. These bars are a little bit smaller than the bars from Chagrin Valley, so each bar lasts for about 6 washes.

I think I have justified my crazy spending sufficiently. Here's a random picture of me and a parrot.

I purchased an antler stick from JCMcCairn a few weeks ago, and it arrived today. Here's the original listing. This is my first ever antler, and I'm very happy with it. It's smooth, light, and slides through the bun very easily. It'll take some time getting used the curve of the stick, and I'm a bit paranoid about the dangles causing tangles and breakage. I wore it today and a few strands got stuck in the dangles, but I managed to untangle them. I think it'll be fine.


Ah, the usual "Hi, this is me, welcome to my blog"-post. Not that there are anyone to welcome, as I find it highly unlikely that anyone will read this. Ah well, let's get this over with. 

I'm KittyBird, a 23 year old woman who loves long hair. My hair is currently at the elegantly named BCL/Butt-crack length, and my goal is to grow to terminal length. In other words, as long as it can get. My hair is iii, 2a/2b, medium strand thickness. Currently sporting a fancy, unintentional reverse ombre, because I'm growing out black chemical dye and dyeing the new growth red with henna. I'm addicted to hair toys, with my current obsession being Flexi-8s. My hair is mostly bunned, but I try to keep it down when I'm at home, so that my scalp gets to rest.

This blog will contain mostly stuff about my hair, but also a lot of other random stuff. Enjoy!
