Hello people! Happy update on hair. :)
I had forgotten about this, in fact. I remembered because yesterday when I read the Bashar transcript that Kiki posted, the term "permission slip" jumped out at me. In many ways, it's what actually helped me with something I had great resistance to.
I was having a bit of a problem with thinning hair and really wanted to change that. But I had a whole lot of beliefs around my hair that were hard to change - like that as soon as my hair grew longer, the weight would cause it to fall more. And other beliefs like I would eventually lose a lot of my hair because my mom had thinning hair in her fifties.
I guess the most important thing to me was finding some way to work around these beliefs. So I set about looking for ways to make the changes not only fast, but also plausible to my then unbelieving mind. After a bit of research on the internet, I came up with a few ideas I thought I could work into my routine:
1. I started taking Biotin supplements. Note that I'd taken these before, but seen little to no change. This time, I labeled the box as "beautiful hair" which reminded me every time I swallowed one.
2. I started washing my hair more often, but using less chemicals on it. When you wash everyday or every alternate day, there isn't much sweat or dust. So a simple wash with plain cool water can clean your hair, preserve the natural oils, and close the hair cuticles. When I did feel like my hair was too greasy, I would just rinse it with a mild conditioner.
3. I'd always wanted long hair, but scared to let my hair grow. This time, I let it grow. I brushed it lovingly every night, experimented with different hairstyles. I stopped being scared about losing it and started loving it instead. I mean, what's the worst that could happen? If it started falling out again, I could just cut it short again and enjoy thick, healthy hair in a super cute hairstyle. I could love it as long as it stayed long. And love it again if I had to keep it short.
4. I looked up pictures of people who had healthy hair. Lucy Hale has a similar shade of brown and I adore her hair! I imagined myself as her, with long luscious locks.
5. I meditated and visualized at night. And during the day, I imagined my head full and bouncy with the hair I've always wanted. I also tried out the Energy Sphere technique that someone posted on here. Brilliant stuff!
Combined, these methods worked wonders on my hair. It started growing out healthier and healthier. I think the important things I did were to love my hair no matter what, and I had a clear image of what I wanted. I used placebos and permission slips that helped me - the important part is that I believed these techniques would work because they had some scientific basis to them and were easier for me to accept.
Anyway, here are some pictures. Sorry about the really bad editing. But I hope you can see the difference in the hair texture and quality.
