Every summer since I started growing my hair out, which has been 4 years now, I get the strong urge to chop it all off.
All i’ve wanted for the LONGEST time is long, what I call “movie star” hair. Every time it’s gotten anywhere close to that in the past, i’ve gotten sick of dealing with it and chopped it all off. Every time I end up regretting it, but my neck never does.
I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again- Virginia summers are nothing to laugh about. They are hot, and they are humid- and they are hell for people with long, thick hair. Me being one of those people.
My hair has now gotten to a length that it hasn’t been since I was a little kid. It is LONG, but still not where I want it… and this summer has already turned out to be a scorcher. 95 degrees or more most days (with the exception of this week). Any time I go outside, my hair instantly starts sticking to any open skin it can.
When we go to Busch Gardens, I HAVE to tie my hair back or i’ll be miserable. Once we go on rides, and the pony tail gets messed up, my attempts to tie it back again are futile at best. I’m so sweaty, that my hair gets sweaty, and then it starts to mat up into a rats nest, and I end up having to tie it back like that. Once we get home at night, it takes me a good 5 minutes to brush out the damage i’ve done.
I always have to wonder: what is the point of HAVING this long hair if all I ever do is tie it back because it bothers me so much?
Not even I can answer that one, and with the time i’ve spent growing it out, I think i’ve invested too much and am too committed to the length to ever chop it all off again. I can honestly tell you that I DREAM about doing it on a regular basis though.
I’ll be thankful for this long thick hair once winter comes back around- it’s like a long warm coat of fur.
@mental_meanders I've lasted 6 years. I'll be damned if they nab me now!
They had a PTA Membership Drive-Thru at school this morning, so naturally, I sped away while yelling "YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE, COPPERS!"

I'm sick today, so if you need me, I'll be in the same place doing the same shit I always do because I'm a mom.

My emotional state today can be described by "My kid turned 10 and started talking about how he'll be getting a job soon"
