Hair Today...Gone Tomorrow!
I am feeling like a new woman. Actually I am feeling like the real me. The me that I prefer. I have had short, and I mean short hair for about the last 4-5 years. (Which is quite a drastic change from my high school hair which was down to the middle of my back.) I was feeling the need for change and began the laborious task of growing it out. Well, I lasted 6 months before I folded! (And that is actually really good for me. ) I was feeling so frustrated with my hair as it got longer. I didn't like that one hour after doing it, (which takes much longer than short hair) I looked like a rag-a-muffin. I didn't like it touching my face, so I would tuck it behind my ears. I didn't like that it got sweaty at the gym. It bothered me to have to take the time to blow dry it after showering. I didn't like that I had to "touch it up" during the day. I didn't like that it made me feel less "spunky." Basically, I didn't like it. One day my friend asked me WHY I was growing it out. I had no reason other than to prove to a girlfriend and my hubby that I could do it. (they knew I wouldn't last and my stubborn streak got the best of me!) So, I was being silly and they were right. I couldn't do it. I didn't want to do it. And after spending way too much time agonizing over my "longish" hair, I chopped it off and haven't looked back!
