Any woman or man who has grown out their hair for an extended period of time knows that it is almost physically painful to lop off that hair. You have to build the courage to make the appointment and then maintain the bravado long enough to actually show up at the designated time. Once there, you have to watch as the strands hit the ground, never to be attached to your head again. It is cruel and yes, it is painful.
The only thing worse than cutting off six inches of hair that you didn’t really want to cut in the first place (but had to because it was so dry and damaged), is having nobody notice it at work the next day.
I miss my hair.
