Thread: Hi All! Chin length starting on the journey!

  1. #1

    Default Hi All! Chin length starting on the journey!

    To introduce myself;

    I have 1b fine hair. Very fluffy but not much actual substance to it.

    It has been bleached and dyed every colour under the sun by me! All semi permanent dyes. I haven't seen my natural hair colour in years... I don't even know what it is any more, as it seems to have gotten darker with age.

    It isn't in terrible condition from the bleaching, but I will be trying to grow out the bleach nonetheless. I did have shoulder length very layered hair, but realised what a mistake that was, how thin it makes the ends. This week, I cut my hair to where my shortest layers were - chin length. At some point I'll get it evened as cutting your own hair short is not easy!

    I've never had hair below APL. At one point my hair barely grew in 6 years due to an eating disorder.

    Over a decade and much better mental health later, I am looking after it better and discovered it seems to be growing quite quick. Being an adult now and time flying by certainly helps, lol.

    Looking forward to going on this journey with you all.

    welcome!! We have similar backgrounds! I had extreme damage from heat, it broke off to around chin length, followed by years of an eating disorder that didnt help.

    &I think you made the right choice cutting it now, thats the one thing I would change when starting my hair journey, I would have cut most of the damage off

    <3 happy growing.

    Thankyou! yeah, I really wanted to start a fresh slate as much as I could, but a buzz cut was a bit too far for me so this was the next best thing. Yep, heat damage and malnutrition, i think I must have lot a third of my hair in total back then. you know the struggle!

    Welcome! I've also cut out bleach twice in the early days of my growth journey.

    Welcome!! Don't worry, you're gonna flourish soon! Your journey sounds exactly like mine in the past, including weight and body image issues (although my problem revolved around physically struggling with being capable of gaining and keeping weight, but anyway). I get ya - looking forward to seeing you around here!
