I've been planning this post for a while, but actually sitting down and writing it has taken some time. I'm pretty sure I've written a million times that I'll try to post more often, but I never manage to do it. This post might make it a bit clearer why this is so difficult for me. The short version is that I just can't be bothered. The slightly longer version is this:
When I started this blog, I was really into hair care and growing long hair. It was one of my hobbies and I felt quite passionate about it. Over the years, the passion has faded. It turns out that it's really difficult to write a blog about something you don't care about. I have tried to write things, planned blog posts, but never managed to actually sit down and write any of it.
I even find that I'm tired of TLHC, which has been my safe haven for several years. I just feel so tired of seeing all the same questions asked again and again, the obsessing over hair length, texture and quality, the same misinformation about what products are good and bad, and the biotin thing. No, taking ridiculous amounts of biotin is not safe and it will not magically make your hair grow. You risk seriously damaging your kidneys! It's one of the most frustrating things I see on that forum.
I realise that I shouldn't complain much, because I used to obsess over my hair and I had some strange ideas about what products were good and what products I thought were "pure evil". It's how most new members are, and most of them grow out of it eventually. It still makes me want to gauge my eyes out with a flexi-8 though, and I find it annoying to always have to avoid certain parts of the forum. I suppose limiting my time on the forum would be a good idea.
I have other things in my life that makes me happy. Most importantly is my boyfriend and my cat, of course, but I always find tremendous amounts of joy in creating things. I love making kanzashi flowers and hair pins, and crochet is my favourite hobby at the moment. I've been thinking about getting back into fractal art too, which I did for many years. So this will be the biggest change in this blog. It's not about my hair anymore, but about the things I create during my spare time. I will of course post pictures of my hair and hair accessories every now and then, but it will mostly be crochet and kanzashi from now on.
