So the time came.....

Lol @ cuttings



FOR A TRIM. LOL.

Before - long

Before - long

They took 12 hours to dry, it hurt to wear them up. My loose hair was spiralling out of control and i was startinng to feel a bit unhappy with them, it was just time.

I've not cut as shrt as I had originally intenting to, as Im hoping to dye them, and then turn the ends up, probably loosing 2 or so inches. I may even cut them chin length I like them SO much shorter. They dired in 2 hours on my first wash. *Heaven*

I cut them using a kitchen knife, a serrated one to get a roug angled edge. I cut on a steep angle then gave them a bit of a brush to loosen up the hairs with a comb. I really like the way my tips look now. The centres of the cut dreads were refreshingly clean. SOmething I was worried about. I was expecting half a beach to fall out!

Inside... clean!

The cuttings...

the back

side shorter

Lish - want one? I have a really crazy one and a really thick one with your name on.

Its funny, all the hair on my head grew this way. I just cut at the point the backcombed, compressed, looped mess ended and where they thinned out. My head is so much lighter.

Roll on summer, skating, ponytails and no more tension headaches!
