Friends and fangirls, since I have been away on vacation, this update has been pushed back a bit. As much as I love writing, the last thing I wanted to do last Sunday night was sit down to write. So we’re a week later. But on the plus side, that means more progress!
Friends and Fangirls, we have progress! It’s not all perfect, but I finished a couple products since last time, so let’s get into it!
Alright friends and Fangirls, it’s that time of the week again! Time to go through the items in my Project Pan, and give you some updates. Here’s the last update, where, a month in, I realized that I’m pretty good at this panning business, and it feels good as heck to be using up old products and buying fewer new ones. But lets dive right in.
Hey friends and Fangirls! I have been living to watch Project Pan videos on YouTube, and my recent obsession with them made me reconsider my collection. I have too much stuff, and a lot of it goes unused, and has for years, so Project Pan seemed like a really great way to push myself to get through some of these old products. Project Pan is a section of the YouTube and beauty community devoted to enjoying and using your collection. While they usually are specified to cosmetics, they are totally down with folks using panning to get through other products. Since I’m brand new to this, I’m probably going to ramble quite a bit today, but know that it’s because I’m excited!
For the longest time, I was not a fan of my curls. I hated that they were wild and messy, and it seemed like I could never control them. It was a really difficult thing to hate; I ended up dyeing my hair colors across the spectrum and straightening it daily. Once this destroyed my hair, I shaved my head to make it virgin once more. Though I do dye my hair now (a relatively natural auburn), I’ve grown to love my curls. My hair is wild like my mothers, and as Ashley says, “similar to Rubeus Hagrid’s,” and he’s a good guy, so I don’t mind looking like him. The thing with having wild and curly hair, is that you have to take care of it differently that if you were taking care of straight hair. Of course, each person’s hair has different needs due to what they’re doing with it; mine is curly and dyed, so it needs hydration from both my conditioner and shampoo.
