Last week I posted that my hair was taking forever to dry because it is so thick. Along with this I was frustrated and growing more and more impatient with how long it was taking to grow. So this weekend I decided to do what any logical woman in her mid-thirties with a birthday next week would do about their frustration with slow hair growth:
Yup! I got the back cut completely off along with a little off the sides and I am so happy. The curls, particularly in the back, are so tight and curly, almost like I've been using Nu Dred! I can't stop playing with them. As I told the cashier at Wal-Mart who has a TWA but longs for hair as long as mine was, I miss a fresh cut. I miss having little curls. The benefits of this is that I have indeed cut down on drying time and I have a new hair style just in time for my birthday next week! I needed something new for a new year.
I have a great hair stylist who has been cutting my hair since I used to live in New Jersey. She's on maternity leave at the moment but we've been friends for some time so I went over to her place to get my hair cut. Also, even if we weren't friends I doubt that she would have wanted me walking around looking like a wet dog this winter. Thanks Larae! By the way she is the manager of Super Cuts on Donelson Pike so when she gets back from maternity leave, holler at her.
They say with age comes wisdom. I also think a little more fearlessness comes with age as well. I mean, it's just hair. At this point in my life I'm not afraid to be a little more risky than I've been in the past. Who knows, come summertime I may just cut some more off.
Do you have any hair goals or hair risks you'd like to try for the new year?
