This past weekend, as well as celebrating my 29th birthday, I also celebrated the milestone of not cutting my hair. No trims, no split-end details, nada. The last salon visit occurred on my birthday one year ago.
It was all accidental, really. I had not planned on avoiding a pair of scissors. Being poor and just seeing how it would go contributed to the feat of adding about 7 inches of length to my tresses. The current length is just past bra-strap length, or “Classic Length” with slight layers for all you Long Hair Aficionados. Notice I didn’t include photos of my hair…because…there are people out there who fantasize about long hair in unhealthy ways. Plus, my site is about covering said hair. 😉
The last time my hair was this long was probably junior high, when I conducted a similar “lets see how long I can let it grow” experiment happened. Since then I have yo-yo’d between pixies (really short) and shoulder length. I was always told my hair was too fine/delicate for any real satisfying long hair experience.
Even though the quality of my hair has changed only a little towards the better (lot less split ends than when I received regular haircuts…hmmm), I enjoy it more as it grows. One of these days I will try to teach myself how to do a french braid or some other similar pretty-ness.
So how long will it grow?? I made it a year….how about another?
