#1: Trying and liking new things.
I cut my own hair last night. I've actually been cutting my own hair since the summer and I'm getting better results than I ever did with salon cuts. I've only been wearing my hair wavy since I discovered its true waviness last spring and my last disasterous salon cut was before I discovered my waviness. I've lived in four different cities in the last five years so it is extra difficult to find a good stylist. I'd like to grow my hair out longer, but I'm trying to get rid of some awful layers that I think are the major cause of some stringy-ness I've got in my hair. I ended up cutting my hair to about shoulder length since I'm getting impatient with these layers. I really thought I would hate that length, but I love it! The layers aren't gone yet so there's still some annoying stringy-ness. I'm confident all the layers will be gone by summer if I keep it about this length. I'm still going to keep my cute side-swept bangs, though. I've also tried using gel instead of mousse with GF C&S leave-in conditioner. I have to admit that gel might not be as evil as I once thought since the C&S gets rid of any hardness from the gel. I still use SCC to control frizzies and smooth dry hair.
