She used a traditional method you would use on straight hair. It was not too bad, but once washed out, it was not super even all the way around.
Two nights ago, I decided to do another big chop. In total, in two days, I cut off about five inches of hair.
Back to under an inch in length.
I'm using this as a new beginning in a few different ways.
I am going to retrain my hair to not be tangled, I am going to retrain my self to take better care of my hair, I am going to learn more ways to protect the ends as it grows so that it looks great as it gets longer, I am going to keep it shaped as it grows out so that it looks great as it gets longer.
I am going to become more disciplined with my hair and my life.
In my life, I basically am more of a follower to some extent. I don't just do what others do, but I am slightly lazy and more or less let things go as they go, unless it is something I have an understanding for and can control easily.
I am going to begin to take more control. I am not going to allow others and outside situations to dictate what I am doing. I am not going to let others allow me to fail. I am not going to allow people to annoy me. I am not going to sit back and not know what I want. I am going to formulate plans and take action to really figure out what I want in all situations.
I am going to begin to take more control.
No, this is not some sort of Jan 1st resolution that will fail in a few weeks. This is something I have been working on throughout the past year and that I feel I will be even better at this year.
My hair is just the beginning of my new beginnings.
