A Hairset

ponta 204 · March 3

Target Language - English

Today, I got my hair cut for the first time in three months. Three months is twice longer than the usual interval, so I'm feeling so refreshed. A barber set my hair with style after cutting, but I can't duplicate the hairstyle at home. I'm reluctant to set my hair in the morning, and if I ride a motorbike the day, my hair will be reset because of a helmet. Therefore, I seldom use hair styling products. My hair is the coolest on a day getting a haircut.

I would say "I got a haircut for the first time in three months", but I think that's based on preference.

Duplicate is a bit unnatural in this context. Also you don't "set... with style", you "style" something.
Therefore, I seldom use hair styling products.

Keep it simple. "Therefore" and "seldom" are a bit かたい. "Seldom" is used mainly in formal contexts.

Overall feedback & comment:

I've given my corrections to match what other people have already corrected.

I think overall your sentences are quite good, but there are a few places where the tone of your sentences doesn't quite match the context and the formality. Please message me or comment if you have any questions.

I hope this helped!
