Thanks, people, for weighing in on my hair situation on this post.
I did end up chopping it, and I am still not sure how I feel about it, thus not posting any pictures, yet.
It is a bit shorter than I wanted, and I kind of ended up looking 16 again. I also may have wanted to cry for a couple days after the fact. Oh well. Hair grows, right?
Lesson for next time: be adamant on what length I want it to be and how I want the style, not “well I want this and this… but also just do whatever you want”
Here are some pictures (for you, Kat), in which I had just woken up and had not done/washed it in about 3 days. Yummy!
