With super thick and what I call "naturally nasty" (not curly, not straight, not wavy, defiant and frizzy) hair every time I would start to get my hair long, it would get warm out. As it gets warmer I have no desire to blow dry my hair and start sweating minutes after taking a shower. So my solution to not having to spend time on my hair would be to chop it off. I actually had grown it out a good amount, and then Munchkie was born and I went in when she was less than two weeks old to have several inches taken off. This (pic below) was my hair two years ago at a friend's wedding. I am so proud of myself for growing it out. It may seem like a little thing, but to me it has been a struggle for five years.
See you later short mom hair!
