    Default Hello everyone!

    Hi, everyone!

    I just joined yesterday. I'm usually more a lurker than a poster online, but I'm happy to meet everyone. I'll try to add some hair pics soon, if I can figure out how to take them.

    I'm a chronic hairstyle experimenter. My hair grows really quickly so it's never bothered me to just chop it all off since I know I can have it long again in a year or two. I've had so many conversations with hairstylists in the past where I had to talk them into cutting off as much as I wanted. XD Currently, my hair is somewhere between BSL and waist. It's starting to bother me because I can't leave it down anymore without getting massive tangles and it's such a pain to wash and takes forever (at least 8-9 hours!) to dry, but at the same time, I feel like I can actually style it easily at this length, which is something I've always struggled with when it's shorter.

    I'm hoping by hanging around here I'll pick up some tips on dealing with it at this length, and some inspiration to keep me from going chin-length again, haha!

    Howdy, nice to meet you! Summer (presuming you're in the northern hemisphere) is a great time to start experimenting with wearing your hair up. If my hair touches my neck/back during this weather, it gets plastered in place with sweat : P

    Hi! :waves: Yes, in the northern hemisphere. Definitely had to put my hair up yesterday because I was melting, haha! I've always struggled with getting headaches when I put my hair up, so I'm hoping to find some styles that minimize that.

    Hello! Your hair is lovely, and so long. I was torn on which definition to put my hair under since it varies wildly between first-day plopped, and fifth-day combed multiple times, for example. Yours definitely looks a little wavier (and so much longer! ); I'm not sure if mine would still have any discernible wave at that length.

    And hello, @SandyBottom and @lapushka! Nice to 'meet' you.

    Hello and welcome! I was also the kind to just chop on a whim, I had a rule that if my hair tried to strangle me in my sleep off it went! Mine isn't nearly as long as yours (yet!) but I just started doing more styles when it annoys me. Here is a style thesaurus thing that has a ton to try, hopefully you'll find something fun that works for you there!
