Bored. But Committed To My Hair.

August 31, 2015

I’ve been growing out my hair for years. Years.

It’s been growing at an excruciatingly slow snail’s pace.

I just want to see how long I can grow out my hair. At this point, it’s already the longest it’s ever been in my life.

And yet, I want it to be even longer.

WHY?

Here’s my line of thinking… hold your laughter please…

When you’re young, your hair is naturally thick and shiny. But as you age, it gets dryer and more brittle, losing its lustre.

For me, I feel like this is it. It’s now or never. This is the point in my life when I will grow out my hair to its longest length. At its most natural brilliance.

This is when I will wear my full crowning glory.

I will never grow out my hair again to this length because 1) It takes for freaking ever 2) It’s so plain and boring and 3) I ain’t gettin’ any younger.

So why am I so committed to growing out My Long Yoko Ono Witch Hairstyle?

The simple answer is…

Because someday I want to look back at pictures of myself and think…

Oh there I am. With really long hair.

And that’s all there is to it.

    oh girl, you’re cracking me up! Thanks for sharing this post. I really enjoyed reading it.

    I agree to your answer of why you want to grow it out; to look back at picture of yourself and think, yes I had a really long hair.

    My mom had a picture of herself with her shiny and super long hair and it reminded her of good memories.

      Thanks Pauline. It’s just one of those things I have to get out of the way. Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely advantages to having super long naturally healthy hair (ie, low maintenance, universally appealing to the eye, etc.) but I am already looking for the next inspiration for my hair! 😀
