For those who know me personally, you know that this topic comes up a lot. I have dreads. I have had them almost 8 years. They are fabulous. They score me compliments and head turns everyday. Here is the thing though, they have gotten long during all of these years — they are almost ass length. When you have super thick and super long hair, it gets hot. Seriously my head is on fire 24 hours a day.
I am also a creature who loves change. I have changed looks too many times to count. With my hair you can’t really do too much. Leave it down, put it in a ponytail that is so long it looks like my hair is down, put a headband on, throw on a hat. The last time I tried to color these things the results were disastrous (tears were shed).
So I am yet again contemplating cutting them off. Dreads are an all or nothing deal. You can’t take your dreads for a trim. Hair gets cut off! Goodbye, gone. I will probably be left with a 2-3 inches of hair.
But it’s hair. Hair grows back. Hair can get fake hair tied into it. Change is good right. Can I be the girl that can pull off super short hair? Can I be the girl that comes to work in an insane pink wig and look like a rockstar? Will change we good or will I regret the decision forever.
I need help people!! Please comment with your opinion or any chopped off all of my hair stories. I will love you forever.
