I Chopped Off All Of My Hair

I chopped off all of my hair. All of it. Why you may ask? I’m not sure. I said I wanted something different, I said I wanted a release, I said I was tired of having to “deal” with my hair. Each one of these may be true, and none of them might. I might be going through something, but whatever. It’s gone, I’m bald.

This was my hair after I decided to lob off a good 4 inches or so. The ends were split terribly, even though I had a lot of length, so they had to go. I dealt with this for a while, but in the back of my head was still itching for something different (and easy).

Thus, I went from this (note: the sides and back aren’t shaven off, I just pinned my hair up – fooled ya).

to this

I like it (it’s a bit more red than I wanted so I might dye it back to brown or something), and even if I didn’t there isn’t anything I can do about it haha.

It’s strange because I thought I would feel this sense of relief after cutting my hair, but I don’t. I think this is indicative of me needing to work through some other stuff, as the heaviness I’m feeling didn’t leave with my tresses. Again, I’m still happy with it because now I don’t have to figure out what to do with my hair in the mornings. I also am hoping that since I do not have my hair to hide behind, it’ll force me to make sure everything else on me looks good and put together which may or may not make me feel better. We’ll see.

What do you all think of the cut?

  1. OMG, I love the cut on you. I like the color too lol, don’t change it. Hopefully this does spark something inside of you that you’ve been looking for because it really looks amazing. They say when you look good you feel good. I’m in a similar space with wanting to cut my hair but I’m scared of it possibly having a negative effect on me 🙈

    • Thank you so much for the reassurance 🙂 I was starting to feel a bit nervous about the brightness of the colour. I am biased of course, but I say go for it! I believe there is a lot of attachment and fear of it associated with hair. Don’t do anything that would affect you negatively, but I think that if your reluctance is rooted more in “what if,” you should take the plunge!
