After this past week, i'm pretty sure 16 year olds' go through their own mid-life crisis, where they wake up one morning and think very irrationally about cutting off all their hair, well not all- but over a good 6 inches. Thanks to the help of my creators, it wasn't a very impulsive decision as i was made sleep on it, go to school on it, but still the prospect of having short, manageable tresses lured me in.
Fast forward a day later, and what was once my long, not so enviable dry and damaged hair was falling to the ground bit by bit as i stood there pondering whether i had made the right decision or not and kept re-assuring myself it was all going to grow back, much, much healthier, provided i abstain from bleaching it this time to get the ombre(read: horrible dip dye) look.
A couple of days later and i have no regrets, although they may be imminent. However, there are so many perks to having shorter, manageable hair; the ease of being able to brush it every day, not feeling like you have something weighing down your head 24/7, how easy it is to wash, how quick you can style it, and not feeling like your in a sauna every time you wear it down. It's every girls dream, right?
Can i also mention how much more texture and body can be added to shorter hair? Wow. Although i do miss picking the split ends which continuously got me out of awkward situations, and reduced the torture of double classes by almost 50%, something me and short hair will never bond over, ever. Its okay though, i believe i'm converted to short hair, a new person y'know - new hair, new me.
New shorter hair, that doesn't weigh a tonne on my head, can be worn in a messy bun without looking like a flat pancake and can be styled in minutes every morning, this is a change i'm gonna be lovin'..
Note: the above picture of me is what happens when i fail to get a good serious photo..
