I have been letting my hair grow for a couple of years. I've had a trimmed a couple of times, but for the most part I was just letting it grow. The past few months it has been getting hard to handle. Brushing it was a chore and I had to use a ton of shampoo to get a good lather.
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving I took a shower and it took me about 15 minutes to get my mop of hair brushed out. I was so irritated that I decided to do something about it!
I loaded Chloe Jo into the car, went to the salon and had them chop 10 inches off of my hair. I then sent my hair to Locks of Love. Hey, if you are going to do something drastic, might as well help others!
Before: A stringy, difficult mess
After: Not near as short as I thought it was going to be (and a bit of an unflattering picture)
Chloe Jo thought she needed to be in on the picture-taking action. I was happy to comply. :)
You know that fun almost nervous feeling you get before you debut a new hairdo or a new outfit. You anticipate what others are going to say. Well, I went to Wednesday evening services that evening and only 1 person said anything. 10 inches and only 1 person noticed. Sigh. That was a major let down. But, they redeemed themselves on Sunday because several people said something then. HA!
