I did it!

After a life time of battling with my hair, perming, braiding, cutting, and trying to drag a comb through its nappy self, I finally did it. No more hair! I chopped it all of on Monday, and I’m pretty pleased with how it came out — despite what the picture looks like. (I’m actually scratching my ear…)

I like not having to do more than brush it when I wake up in the mornings. I like the feeling of the rain on my head. I like the idea that I can be proud of my own, short, nappy hair — and I like the fact that I can still look feminine with such a short cut.

Finally, I like the fact that this cut cost me $20 instead of me having to spend the normal $60 each month for the styles I usually sport. Hopefully, not only will wearing my hair natural save me from having to get my hair professionally done at such a high price, but it will also teach me a thing or two about learning how to take care of my hair myself.

Now I’m off to buy some of those giant hoop earrings. I guess I will actually have to use those holes in my ear lobes since everyone can see them now!

  1. I love it, and I think the picture is cute. I think you look really happy in the picture. Like you’re about to do the Snoopy Dance. 😉
    I’m glad things are going well for you – and I really really adore your hair.
