...because I could see so many split ends! They were driving me nuts. Seriously, I saw some strands that were split 3 ways, or where they weren't split at the very bottom, but up the hair shaft the strand was actually gaping open. So I took about an inch off all over. I showed no mercy. I just wonder how the heck I got so many when I'm not mean to my hair and have barely been using the diffuser lately. I kind of suspect it had to do with the length because it had gotten so long. But as I've said before I trim my hair about once a month, so how my hair keeps growing like a weed is beyond me.
Well first the bangs and now this! Maybe it's the weather that hasn't been kind to your ends? That's great that your hair is growing so fast!! I can't wait for my hair to get a bit longer so I can get a cut that shapes it.
On a sidenote, how are you liking the bangs? Sorry if you've posted about it recently and I missed it.
I hate them. But thank goodness for headbands (like the one a certain lovely curlie on here sent me *wink-wink, nudge-nudge*. I've been wearing them a lot more lately because then you can't see the dreaded bangs. They just need an extra inch or two and then they'll be more bearable. As far as my length and the inch I took off tonight, if I hadn't told you, you wouldn't know because the length looks basically the same. Just healthier hopefully.
I don't know - it's so damn dry here, I've been having a really difficult time keeping it moisturized. And when I got my hair cut a little over a month ago, my hairdresser even commented on my wacky split ends.
I don't know that I'll ever be brave enough to trim my own hair . . .
