What. Have. I. Done?!?!?!

on February 17, 2015

So everyone remembers The Great Hair Catastrophe right? Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell……. It has happened again. Yes. You read that right. I have had another Great Hair Catastrophe. And I’m honestly not sure which is worse… Everyone tells me that this one is not that bad, but I absolutely hate it.. Like heat from the 7th circle of hell… (That’s a place right? I mean I’ve never read Daunte’s inferno or anything like that… So I’m not sur…) But here’s the story.

I had this super bright (no sarcasam there I swear) idea that I would donate ten inches to Locks of Love. This one charity that I truly love hearing about. I’ve been growing my hair out for over a year now. Probably about a year a half.

This is what I started with..

This is what I started with..

My hair was down to about the middle of my back. I went in to my hair stylist on Valentine’s day and decided it was time to cut it off. I had been playing around with the idea for a while because I have extremely thick hair. So I had finally made the decision to chop it off. Measured it, and it was just over 10 inches. (Which is how much you have to 10 inches to donate.)

So the stylist set to cutting. And cutting. And cutting. Aaaaaaaaaaand cutting. And then the styling started… Don’t get me wrong I love my stylist. She’s great. She did a great job when she died my hair. But I think we took a little too much off when we cut it… Because now I hate it. Like I feel like I just stepped out of the 1920s and I should be wearing a flapper dress with my boobs tapped down, sitting in a basement turned speakeasy drinking illegally made moonshine.

I’m not sure if it was because styled it with a straightener and the curls where just massive but I’m still waiting to fall in love with my new cut… Guess it will just have to grow on me.. (Insert drum and symbols and my horribly lame pun..)

  1. I’m growing out my hair to donate, too. It’s so thin, it’s taking forever to reach the length requirement. I love being able to just pull it up into a pony tail, so I’m dreading the day I get it all whacked off.
    I hope you learn to love your new hair style or that it grows back quickly enough to form into something new.

  2. Bless! Just keep your mind focused on the person or persons who will have beautiful flowing locks as a result of your generousity. It will grow; whereas a wig is in the same style forever and the wearer not with the luxury of experimenting.

      Thanks! Me to!! I think once the back gets a little longer I will be more comfortable. The bottom later of the back right now is about two inches long. That’s from the base of my scalp to the tips of my hair… It’s just a lot shorter than I’m used too!!
