Several years ago I stopped cutting my hair, I get small trims and cut my bangs but for the most part I have not had a change is style or a shorter length for quite some time. I made a pact with my self to let it grow and not get it cut until I got pregnant. That was when we were still trying fertility treatments and thought that it was only a matter of time. I have had long hair for a very long time and thought if I was able to grow it a few more inches I would be able to donate it to Locks of Love or some other similar organization. Little did I know how long I would let it grow. When we decided to adopt I kept going and said I would cut it when I became a parent as pregnancy was no longer a likely option.
Lately, I have been getting sick and tired of my hair. I can do nothing with it except pull it into a ponytail, braid or clip. It is even getting too much for the clip. It take all day to dry naturally and it is heavy and is getting in my way. I never thought I would have to worry about pulling my own hair by sitting on it or getting it caught under my arm. I actually have to take my hair down when I get a head ache and am beginning to wonder if having my hair up is not contributing a bit to getting the headache in the first place.
I am probably going to cut it before the adoption. But I am having a strangely hard time with it. I know I am weird it is just hair but it is several years worth of growing hair. I bought a magazine on hair styles so I can go in with some ideas and Emily has volunteered to hold my hand and go with me. But I have still not made the appointment. Here is a picture I took a couple weeks ago to show how long my hair is, what is your advice should I just chop it now or wait?
