So I had eight inches of hair cut off today. I’m donating the braid to Children with Hair Loss. It feels kind of weird. I’m so used to having to move hair out of the way when I do stuff. It is almost a habit. It is much lighter. Though I probably won’t always straighten it, I like that it seems like it will be easy to manage.
I wanted to grow my hair out mostly for the wedding – which I did. Now that it is over, my long hair was driving me crazy. I rarely did anything with it other than put some mousse in it and go. Since it was finally long enough to donate, I decided to go ahead and get it cut. My hair grows pretty fast so if I want to do it again, I’ll be able to in another three years or so.
Unfortunately on the way to the salon I got pulled over and received a speeding ticket. I guess it was a pretty expensive hair cut. I will probably take defensive driving to have it dismissed, but that will be a pain in the ass. But it’s my fault. I’ll certainly be more careful next time.
