Today, I was sick of my hair. So I chopped it off.
I don't really like it. I have to be honest, it was a $20 Great Clips haircut. $20 was with a 30% tip. It looks like a $20 haircut. But that's okay. . who am I trying to impress? No one.
I like it because it's freeing, though. I chopped off all those dead ends, fried from the bajillion times M asked me to go blonde. I'd always say NO initially, because blonde is so high maintenance, and you can't really do it at home. But then he'd talk me into it, and I'd do it. And then it would grow out, and he wouldn't want to spend the money to have it done again.. so I'd dye it brown again. Over and over, the cycle repeated itself.
Well, I'm done with that. I'm done with changing myself so he would like me more. I'm done with abusing myself for what he wants. My all around health is my priority now - mental, physical, emotional - and that includes healthy hair.
So goodbye, split ends. Goodbye, chemically processed hair. And HELLO savings on shampoo, and 5 minute flat ironing. Oh how I've missed you.
