I mean I don't hate it, but like many curly haired girls out there, I'm constantly frustrated by it.
Naturally I have medium brown, thick, curly/wavy hair.
Since I was 16 I have had short hair, long hair, straight hair, blonde hair, black hair, red hair, various shades of brown hair and multiple combinations of high-lighted/low-lighted hair.
Hair was always one of those things that I could, and did, easily change depending on my mood.
Since I started noticing grey hairs around the age of 26, I've pretty much stuck to a darker brown than my natural with some highlights underneath. It works because I don't have any roots and it looks natural.
At the beginning of the summer I chopped my hair to above my shoulders. It's the first time since I was a teenager that I've had what could be considered "short" hair. The 3 years prior to that my hair was mid to low back. If you consider that according to my hairdresser I have enough hair for 3 people, that's a lot of bloody hair. And during the hot and humid summer months, it's a bitch to deal with. Because as my curly girls know, humidity + curls = frizz. And I've never had CURLY hair. My hair is more curl/wave/frizz.
So in the spring I decided that I wasn't going to put up with that shit and chopped 11 inches off. Then in July I went a little shorter. And I have to say, I enjoyed the change.
But recently I've been missing my long hair desperately. I miss being able to put it in a long braid. I miss being able to do anything with it in general. Because right now I have 2 options. Up or down. Curl or straight. I'm also itching to do something with the color.
I get this itch every once in a while. I mean it was that itch that prompted me to chop off 11 inches of hair. It's also the itch that in the past has lead me down the road to getting tattoos or piercings.
I don't know what causes it but something will dig into my brain and once it's there, I can't get it out.
I need to do SOMETHING. And based on past experiences if I ignore the urge to change my look I will probably end up doing something more drastic that I should because the itch will turn into full on mental hives.
The great this is that I have an awesome stylist that I trust to have a bit of creative license with my hair.
Does anyone else get the random idea to do something drastic to their look? I mean wouldn't it be cool to go out and buy new clothes, chop off your hair and color it a totally different shade and look like a totally different person tomorrow?
Am I the only one this happens to?
