Rudee BC!

Well, I did it. I've been wanting to do it since I went CG (5/01)....

I got SO tired of waiting for the last few inches of straightened hair to grow out (last straightening was May of 07), so today I FORCED the girl who cuts my hair to CUT IT OFF.

In total she cut about 3 inches - and thats a BigChop for me!! I loooooove long hair and will grow it back, but I just couldnt look at those rediculous, dead, straightened ends one more day! It is SHE-ORT - but no more straightening - woo hoo!

Will post some pics when I get the chance. And I apologize in advance for all the *****ing I will do here til my hair grows back

Plus I'm still trying to get a handle on my Winter routine.... so, I'm not a very happy, hair-camper these days. I will need you, Dear Del, in the days to come....

And YES, am getting my poo bars tomorrow!

Because of my texture and volume I need the length (think Andie McDowell circa 1995). I look about 12 now, all round and puffy and chubby cheeked...( think Shirley Temple) ....U will get it when you see the pics.... Ugh.

I must keep repeating <it will grow. it will grow.> And you are right, a new hair cut kinda settles in a week or 2.

I DO KNOW what you mean, I'm a long haired girl too. But, my face is very square & it's not conducive to shorter locks. You have a smaller face I'm sure you can pull this off! Keep that chin up and wear your new look proudly! Think "Carrie" on SEX and the City when she cut her hair into a bob YES? I doubt very much you look like a Q-TIP!!!!

So glad you're happy to have those last vestiges of "straighten-dom" gone.

Can't wait to see the pics!!!

Rudee! I'm so proud of you! Chopping off 3 inches! This is indeed a day for the history books. Just remember, if you need to elongate the curls, so it's not so poofy, put some duckbill clips on the bottom to weigh it down while it dries.

I vote for pictures! No chickening out now! I'm sure it'll look fabuloso.

And you know...with the shampoo bars, you probably won't have as much volume, so that'll take care of some of the volume you've talked about.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
Omg you guys, its is soooo short I am seriously bummed but still dont regret it. I will just have to wear my hair up for a while.... Vanity sucks.

I sympathize! When I got my last cut, I cried a little I am still trying to grow my hair out from my locks of love donation last year. But I am sure you look like a babe!!
Although I am not saying you got a bad haircut at all, I had to share this saying my friend told me when I was whining, lol The only difference between a bad haircut and a good haircut is 6 weeks!

No offense at all. I was ready for a big change, my hair was just above the small of my back, and it just seems too wasteful to me to just throw it away!

OMG, rudeechick! I was just checking out your fotki and photobucket- what a great CG transformation, and what beautiful curls! I'm a long hair lover, too, but with hair like yours, girl, it's still gotta look good.

Can't wait to see the pics.

You know what cracks me up? The fact that your "short" is probably the longest my hair has ever been. Now, I'm locked into a growing out pact, so there won't be anything more than a trim until Jun 09, I think. Maybe I'll reach it past the "hate my length because it's too long to style short and too short to wear in an updo" phase.
