I knew it was only a matter of time before I would get tired of looking at this mess. Yes, I did chop off 4 inches a little while ago but the rest was going to go sooner or later.
Everyone will encounter some setbacks when growing out their hair. This has been my first real one. I have been fortunate enough that in the 4 years since I have began to really take care of my hair this is the first time that I have had to cut a significant amount of hair off due to some type of damage.
I do regret getting on Mirena all the time, but since the damage that it has done to my hair and my body is already done there is no reason to keep dwelling on the issue.
A fresh new start is just what I needed!
Heres a pic of my shrunken fro...
This time I cut off about 6"! So I have gotten rid of 10" total in about 2 months. It is going to take me 2 years to get back to where I was before aug 2008. I may be trying some growth aids in between to boost my growth so I may get there a little quicker!
I posted more pics in my fotki album
These pics basically tell the story which made my decision. When a set of twists don't look good there is a problem!!
One thing I do want to say!! Do NOT hold on to scraggly, damaged ends for the sake of length. Uneven hair causes tangles. Tangles can lead to BREAKAGE!! Cut it and grow it back out! You will be much happier...
OK this is the last time I am posting about this on my blog!! lol
