    Default A little mad at my hair..

    It's not REALLY my hair's fault but I just feel really discouraged about it. I got a trim the other day which it needed and while it was blown straight it didn't seem too much shorter but I left it curly this time and it's above BSL again by about an inch when curly! It is curling much better but still I am just feeling down about it. I guess I need to put it up but then I started to do my old standby Figure 8 this morning and it wasn't long enough WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, just wanted to whine. It's raining and that makes my hair curl even more. Sometimes I just wish I had stick straight silk-like hair. Like today.

    Somedays I totally agree with you about wanting stick straight hair! Try to focus on how great your curls look! You have gorgeous hair!

    While I am not a curly, but a wavy one, I can sympathize. Some days my waves pull my hair much shorter then the actual length.

    I have straight hair, which from my perspective, no one in their right minds would actually aspire to have. On the other hand I can understand the envying what you do not have. Personally I think your hair when curly is especially lovely.

    I notice in recent weeks that I've lost most of my curl, and even though it's longer than it's ever been, which is a good thing, I miss the curl. I totally understand where you're coming from, but all I can say is enjoy that sensational curl and backtrack to a former updo that worked better when your hair was shorter.

    Thanks everybody

    I put it in a braid, guess I'll wear that for a while again. At least it made me know I want to grow longer. I had thought I might want to go back to BSL and stay there and now I am SURE I don't at least right now!

    Trust me, I understand your frustration! I am quite a bit shorter than you, but I just did a tiny trim and I feel like my hair is so much shorter! Realistically, I guess I got used to my hair falling a certain way, and with the trim, it disrupted the wave pattern, or something.

    Hey, at least you were able to take something away from this- you definitely want to be longer!

    ((HUGS))) Just to make you feel better, I don't have spiral curly hair like you, but it spirals in sections, waves in others, and is dead straight right in the back. One day I'll get a photo of it after air drying.

    I need someone to trim my ends because as soon as scissors cut into it, it flips/curls/twists. So, what I think is happening is just that--after a mini-trim, it really kicks up the natural wave/curl. I've noticed this many times with my own hair.

    Don't get discouraged!! It's healthy to have splits/trims to keep hair even and reduce breakage.

    If it makes you feel better, I don't even know HOW to do a figure 8! Hahahh (well, on horse back, yes, with my hair? Notsomuch.

    :sigh: I understand your frustration, but as a pretty straight haired person, I would just love to have curls..not the weird disjointed wavies that I have, but real honest to goodness curls.

    Your hair is gorgeous, whether curly or blown straight, and you'll have the length back in no time, I'm sure. In the meantime, a soft cinnamon bun would look very pretty
