Helloooo! I do hope that everyone is well. A few days before new year I took the plunge and got my waist-length hair cut to just above my shoulders. It was something I had been pondering about for quite a while, but eventually it just got the point where there was just no point in keeping it long anymore. I know that that is a weird thing to say, but seriously, there was no point. The reason I had long hair was because I wanted my hair to look nice long, and it just got to the stage where it was so unmanageable that it never ever looked nice, and I was always just tying it up and trying to forget about it. Now, I can imagine that everyone's hair gets tangly once in a while, but the matts in my hair just got completely out of hand, there was almost just no getting through them. Even when I went to the hairdresser to get it cut, it would take them a good half an hour just to push the tangles down to where they could comfortably cut them off. Seriously - I was just completely sick of it!
Since having it cut, it just feels so, SO good. My hair not only feels a whole lot healthier, but it has no tangles at all and it looks a whole lot thicker. Washing it has become so super easy - where before I would put off showering / washing my hair, now I would happily do it ten times a day because it's just so nice to do. It has made me love my hair again and want to style it and look after it, whereas before I think I just started to resent it. I think this hair cut makes me look a bit classier / fashionable to, which is a definite bonus! I suppose the main point of this blog post is just to say - don't hold on to your long hair if you are not 100% happy with it. It will always grow back, and you might just benefit a hell of a lot from the change! I do not regret it for a second.
Feeling a bit better today. Well, It's now 7:00pm and I'm up and about on the computer - a definite improvement! Let's hope I wake up in the morning feeling all sparkly and new, because I hate being ill. It always makes me so anxious, and that is something I'm actively trying to avoid at the moment. I will make this year the year of change, and the year of success. I've done pretty well in January so far!
