|Trying to get past this length in 2013
For my hair journey, the beginning of 2013 looks pretty much like the end of 2012. My main focus this year will be to protect my hair from ME! That’s right, I’ve figured out the real reason why I’m still sitting at the length I am now. Some people call it “Scissor Happy” but I’m now calling it counter productive. I really like when my ends have that blunt cut appearance and when they don’t, I’m pulling out the scissors. As far as retaining length, with this way of thinking, I’m at a stand still with my hair.
Lately I have been looking for ways to distract myself because yes, I’ve been thinking about cutting again. I hit APL (Arm Pit Length) at the sides a couple times in 2012 and saw it as an oppurtunity to even things up. Now, I do still have bangs in the front and layers on the top and sides, so my bottom layer is still the lengthiest part of my hair overall. I guess I have always wanted to help the other sections catch up to the rest which would mean trimming the longest bits little by little. Still, even with that being the goal I figured I would just hover at BSL (Bra Strap Length) before trying to make my hair more even. At this rate, I’ll never see BSL which for me is only two more inches away (in back; when the hair is stretched).
Last fall I counted and it looks like I gave myself at least 6-7 trims throughout the year. Some to get rid of heat damage (searching for the perfect curl) and some to give my hair that look of blunt ends. My last trim for 2012 was at the end of November and I honestly think I should put the scissors aside until the spring. I really am curious to see where my hair will end up in the coming months but the urge to cut is always there. Not sure if I can do it but I’m gonna try.
