I haven't been here in such a long time, I don't remember when the last time I was here was. Life has been so crazy lately!
I've been thinking about cutting my hair, about 6 inches or so. I haven't been able to give it the attention ti deserves and the split ends and damage I have, despite wearing it in a bun most of the time makes me really upset, along with the fact that I've shed a lot since I graduated from undergrad. I think part of the shed is due to stress (trying to get into grad school, bills, working a job i don't like), but regardless, it's even thinner than it was before, so there's no question that I'll never wear it in pigtails or more than one braid (so no Disney Rapunzel hair style for me *sigh*). My braid is somewhat pitiful looking as it is. I still want to grow it out to about classic length (My goal is for it to be in one braid and go around my head, since I don't think I can manage to do a crown braid on myself...I'm maybe 4 or 5 inches away) but i think i need to cut it back, focus on letting it get healthy and waiting to grow it out until i do have the time to treat it properly (I haven't had a proper SD in so long).
I've been debating getting some kind of bangs and maybe, maybe some very, very long layers (I will have to be very strict as to what I mean by this, as getting layers is what made me avoid hairdressers in the first place) but I'm kind of afraid to go for it. I love my hair, and even with the damage and thinness, I still get told often how pretty it is. Sooo, I dunno what will happen. I know you ladies recommend a waiting period, but I think I've gone past it xD
I haven't been able to go through all the pages of posts I've missed, but I hope you're all well!
