So, I haven’t relayed this onto tumblr yet, but I’m thinking of getting a buzz cut/going bald. After getting my hair professionally straightened and going through a period of it not going back to the way it was, I realized that I was mostly frustrated with myself. Here I was, all this time, focusing on growing my hair and being satisfied with the 13 inches that I had after getting it straightened, only to realize that my hair was never really healthy. Getting it straightened didn’t ruin my hair, it was already ruined and straightening it just made me realize how bad it was.
So I’ve been getting all of these apps, and taking all of these pictures, trying to imagine what I would look like bald/with my brothers haircut and none of them seem to be working as well. I don’t know if I’ll listen to my mom and get braids before cutting so I can have some hair, or if I’ll brave it and just cut it. It all boils down to the last two weeks, on whether I’ll have hair or not. Then, it will be on me to take care of it.
