Default 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

I feel happy and sad. I loved my long hair, but today I finally was able to do my hair without having to force-scrunch pathetic faux-curls into the ends.

Plus I look a little sheep-like, my hair got much curlier now... But it will take just as long to grow back the length as it would have to grow out the remaining straightening.... SO I bit the bullet.

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!

I'm here for you Honey Bear I'm sure you look adorable!!!! I can't WAIT to see it!! It's amazing how just a couple days with a new cut can look so different, it will grow back or maybe you'll just decide you like it shorter! Think Kathymac or Notty type hair, very cute.........Then it's the soap bar experiments YAY!

But short hair suits them! I am a long hair girl, tried and true. I have had short hair - I look like a Q-tip with a perm

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.

Thanks

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!!!!

Lol - that was the only season HATED her hair - and notice how quick she was to grow it back!!

My cheeks look chubby when my hair short (bad memories of the Shag my mom had "Mr.Dino of Italy" give me when I was 10 and my brother got Bar Mitzvahed), trust me, its very Bo-peeps sheep! Will post pics later (if I have the guts!)

Don't try to fool us!!! We KNOW you'll be a babe regardless of what hair style you have.

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.

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!

Yup. The whole 9 yards: chest hair, unbuttoned huckapoo shirt, Le'Sir pants. He gave me a SHAG. Who gives an 10 year old with THICK CURLY HAIR a SHAG????

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!

I can't wait to see pics of the new style. It WILL grow. I can bump up my Hair-growing thread for you. We're all chanting and dancing to make our hair grow. I think it's time for a check in anyway.

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.

We got your back Honey Bear like Sunshine Girl said no chickening out now! It CAN'T POSSIBLY be THAT BAD! I can't believe you "hated" Carries hair when she chopped it. I thought it looked great! It was a HUGE change from the long curls she was sporting and you had to give her credit for trying something new. Hey if you're not willing to wait for it to grow how about extensions?

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.
