Here's my final "before" picture. It was one inch longer than the picture in my signature. Solidly tailbone when straight and unbraided. Yesterday before the cut I got 4 different comments on the length from people I see all the time! I think it was the skinny braids that looked longer. (btw, I didn't tell any of them that I was cutting it!)



Here is the after pic. It's now elbow length - just shy of waist. It feels great!



The person who cut my hair is the dad of a student. I bartered writing class for a haircut It's my first time in a salon since I was 11 and got a free cut at a resort for donating my hair (I know all about donating and it possibly not being used in wigs...it was a free salon cut and I needed my hair cut so that's why I did it!) Anyway, back to this cut. My hair is growing back in after the great shed of 2011 when I lost half of it. It sticks out and curls awkwardly so I got face framing layers to help it blend. Plus I like that I'm now able to leave some out to frame my face when my hair's up.

He had fun with my hair. I've been talking about a cut for months with him, so he knew what I was going for. Plus I see him every week so he knows how I wear my hair on normal days. After cutting it and seeing how it would be naturally I let him heat-style it. I never heat style my hair, mostly because it's takes too much time to do it on myself. Oh, yeah, and damage. But one time isn't gonna be a big deal since I'm blessed with generally healthy hair that can go years without trimming and still won't have more than a few splits.

So that's the story

Wow, Jordan, your new haircut looks great on you! And seeing that you are happy with it makes me very happy as well. I'm also glad that you are detecting new growth. While it may be unruly, I'd say that it's great that your hair is going back to your normal thickness.
Oh, and I almost forgot - what a thrifty idea, to exchange a writing class for a cut That's very clever of you.

Thanks you for the kind comments!

I can't take credit for the cleverness of the bartering idea - it was his. He really wanted to get his hands on my hair He said it was fun to do a long cut. So many of his clients have such short hair. We both had a good time. He was respectful of my preferences and once we decided on each snip he would remind me to breathe

It must be great to have such a considerate stylist! In your shoes, I too would let the man cut my hair. And it doesn't matter that the barter wasn't your idea - it's clever nonetheless

it looks good and sounds as if you had a wonderful stylist. Wish you could send him down here.







Progress from June 2006 - January 2011

2a/M/ii
Mid-Dark brown with natural red and silver highlights; fringe/bangs.
Starting length: 25"/62.5cm (BSL)
Current length: 33.5" (Cut back from 38.5" February 2011 following a massive shed.)
New Goal: Healthy hair that I'm happy with!

Current routine: Scalp wash every second to third day using Chagrin Valley shampoo bars. Finish with acidic rinse (1 tsp ACV or lime juice to 1 to 2 cups of water or herbal tea). Full wash once a week using A'kin conditioner or an egg wash to cleanse the length and shampoo bars or A'kin shampoo on the scalp.
Other: Oiling when required with avocado and almond oil or shea butter; regular micro-trims; BBB; wooden comb; Mason Pearson comb; hair sticks, Flexi-8's, Ficcare, and other hair friendly toys.

'Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfailing beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.' 1 Peter 3:3-4

I am still loving my new do. I kept it in its straightened state with touch up around my face through Saturday (so glad my hair is used to one shampoo/week!). It was fun to have easy, brushable, straight hair for a time, but I'm glad to be back to my wavy/curly state! I need to take a pic on a good hair day to put in my siggy!

EVOO for deeper treatments.
Every so often I soak my tresses before I wash with a diluted batch

Love Alba's Acai shampoo and conditioner.
When I remember, I massage a little of Desert Lily's aloe vera

I bartered writing class for a haircut It's my first time in a salon since I was 11 and got a free cut at a resort for donating my hair (I know all about donating and it possibly not being used in wigs...it was a free salon cut and I needed my hair cut so that's why I did it!) Anyway, back to this cut. My hair is growing back in after the great shed of 2011 when I lost half of it. It sticks out and curls awkwardly so I got face framing layers to help it blend. Plus I like that I'm now able to leave some out to frame my face when my hair's up.

He had fun with my hair. I've been talking about a cut for months with him, so he knew what I was going for. Plus I see him every week so he knows how I wear my hair on normal days. After cutting it and seeing how it would be naturally I let him heat-style it. I never heat style my hair, mostly because it's takes too much time to do it on myself. Oh, yeah, and damage. But one time isn't gonna be a big deal since I'm blessed with generally healthy hair that can go years without trimming and still won't have more than a few splits.

So that's the story

Without the curl it reaches tailbone
33"/41"/40" (tailbone) well fancy that, I'm past my goal

You're hair is adorable. How do you keep it long without split ends?
