Thank you to everyone who replied to my post of a couple of days ago. I feel a lot more confident about dreading my hair without needing to use a lot more resources than I currently do. There are many reasons for me wanting to do this, to make this sort of change in appearance and lifestyle and among those reasons is living even more lightly on this earth, i.e. using fewer resources.
So thanks again for reaffirming to me why I can confidently dread my hair.
Now... to find someone who will help! 'cuz dang, I got a LOT of hair!
