Take about a pound (or two) of hair off your noggin. Much less pulling at your temples and neck. Ah, relief.
I went and got my hair colored because it was BAD. I have huge streaks of it all over my head. Sigh. This color is very like my own and it has some depth and doesn't look all one color.
For comparison, before:And after:
Granted, my hair is never that smooth and straight in real life. It's wavy and unruly and frizzy and it does not lay down. But that's okay. I like it. And now that it's lighter on my head I am so much happier with it. Seriously, people. I was breaking teeth off hair clips and busting those grippy hair bands because it was so heavy.
I'm going to go back Tuesday to play with the styling (curlers, curling iron, products) and possibly cut some more layers. We were both terrified that once freed of the ridiculous weight it would dry and spring up and be ridiculously short. Tomorrow when I let it air dry it will be shorter than this. And I like it. (It's a little longer in the back)
Now that my head's in a better place it feels good to have this physical weight off and have a new look. Yay!
