I had to "prep" the hubby for a few months. He had no idea what the heck I was talking about. All he knew was that I would complain alot and I had alot of bad hair days.

Then one day out of the blue I cut my hair off. He came home from work and was like I don't know if he liked it or not. I know that he was not exactly excited about it. He never complained though. My co-workers thought I was absolutely nuts though.

Now that my hair had length my DD seems excited about my hair again. He will smell it (I love fruity scented hair products) and will play with my hair.

As far as my family - my grandma loved it. My grandfather said I looked homeless. My mom hated it, now loves it. My kids thought I was going thru a midlife crisis LOL

Overall I really only remember how I felt... happy as hell and relieved it was finally over and I could concentrate on my natural hair.
