I did it. I did what every woman who had grown her hair long dreads…The day of truth. The day of sacrifice…The day of reckoning.
Yes, the day of cutting!
Before I went on my summer trip to Thailand I had planned to get my hair cut, but I thought the sun, sea etc would damage my nice new do, so I planned to wait until I got back.
Along with starting a new job as Operations Director, I needed a new, fresh start – I was…I am having one in a new country anyway, so I thought, why not with my hair.
You know what it’s like, it’s so nice for a change.
But changes are also scary. Especially when we seem to be hanging onto something that isn’t really there. Something perhaps metaphoric in place of our hair. Maybe for some of us our hair contains memories, maybe for others if contains ‘youth’. We know these are not truths but really in our imagination. In fact when we get our hair cut, coloured and/or restyled it often makes us look more youthful, funkier, healthier, more confident and thus in turn, happier(?)
I was hanging onto what I thought was attractive…(Having) long hair.
It didn’t matter that it was scraggly, unkempt, knotty and dead-ended. It was irrelevant that it was in dyer need or dye, that it needed a trim, that it was dull and lifeless.
Then I realised. It DOES matter. Wouldn’t it be better to have short hair if it was healthier. And now it’s shorter, it looks fuller anyway! It makes me think I should have done it yonks ago!
