Out of My Comfort Zone #1

I've joined a challenge called Out of my Comfort Zone and this month's theme was to break a fashion rule.

Well, this is sort of a long story but bear with me. I have fine hair but a lot of it, and if I wash it daily it goes greasy so I tend to wash it every other day, or if I'm not going out (I work part time so that happens a lot) then I leave it three days. Added to this, I swim every week and chlorine dries the hell out of the bottom of my hair, so I have to be careful that I wash it the day after to get rid of the chlorine. I also only wash my hair in the mornings because it goes really curly/kinky if I don't!

So, I washed my hair on Monday morning and it's now Wednesday. I had a dentist appointment earlier so I should have washed my hair, but I'm going swimming later, so I don't want to. So I put my hair up in a clip and went to the dentist.

This is so far out of my comfort zone it's untrue! To me my hair looks greasy and smells horrible. To everyone else it probably looks fine, but still! This is breaking a fashion rule because women especially are expected to always look perfect.

You can't see my hair really but believe me, it feels awful. 

This is the new top I'm wearing, it's from H&M, it was really cheap and I love this type of top for just shoving on to run errands in!

  1. I know what you mean about the hair. If my hair is dirty, all of me feels dirty. It's so silly and shows just how brainwashed women have become to be perfect and presentable all the time. Bah humbug!

  2. welcome to the challenge and I know what you mean, you look lovely by the way and that top is adorable xxx
