I Can’t Believe I Really Cut It All Off – 25 Inches GONE!

I Cut It All Off – 25 Inches GONE!

Before

I have had long hair for about 11 years. When I say long I mean all the way down to my butt long.  

I would get it trimmed every once in a while but I hated cutting it.

 One day my daughter and I were discussing front bangs and I told her how didn’t like them and would never get them.

Of course she had to disagree with me and started browsing through google and trying to find a photo of a woman with straight bangs that I would love.

Now she has this need to convince me that she is right and bangs are rockin’! After about 15 minutes of showing me photos she comes across one and I am immediately in love.

I look over at her and throw her phone back across the room to her waiting hand. Smiling I tell her to call our hair dresser because I am getting my first real hair cut in 11 years. Bangs even! She is more than over joyed!

So after making the appointment and posting on social media for 3 days about how I’m going to take the plunge the day arrives.

I woke up with my hair wrapped around my neck/head for the last time!

No more having to wake up and move my hair to roll over in the middle of the night! No more having to wear hair clips just to bend over and see something.

No more having to hold my head away from chairs and car seats because my hair is too long and I have to keep it up so I don’t sweat to death. No more split ends and not wanting to cut them off. No more hot neck. No more hot back! No more hot sweaty days simply because I didn’t bring a hair tie.

No more having to worry about my hair breaking or making sure I give it nutrients to grow long. No more expensive hair spray to hold a heavy long curl. No more having to use hot rollers twice just to get a curl to stay half the day. No more having to have a hair clip in the shower just to wash it all.

No more smacking people in the face with hair when I move it off my shoulders or when just sitting in a car. No more your hair takes up more room than you in the pool. OMGosh NO MORE LONG HAIR!

I was super excited and way overwhelmed all at the same time. Making such a big life change was CRAZY but I was tired of all that HAIR!
