I happen to have very long , thick, black wavy hair. I love my hair of course..But now its getting bit too long and I find it very hard to manage it on my own. I regret having such thick hair only when I find myself having to comb and put all this in a plait when I'm nearly late for the lectures.
I get a hair cut once in every 2 months or so. When I say hair cut, it actually means hair trimming or reshaping it and shortening it up to my waist length. But it grows again too fast and catches up with my mid thigh level before I could trim it again. Just like magic! Cutting it up to my shoulder level should solve this problem. Its not just that..I also love to iron my hair like many other girls :)..But there are two things which impede in carrying out this solution. Firstly, my mom and then -My mind itself! Mom doesn't approve of cutting my hair too short nor ironing. But I know she would allow me to do so, at least reluctantly - only if I could persuade her more. But I find it hard to do that because somewhere in the corner of my mind I'm happy with this hair... Such contradictions..! I'm getting tired of such contradictions of my own mind! *Of course girls minds work in mysterious ways..!*
I asked my friends for some opinion which would help me to make up my mind and decide. My friends say I've got gorgeous hair and so not to ruin it. Still some of them say It'll look more lovely if I cut it and iron it. *Thank U..It really helped..I'm more confused now :P.*
During last Christmas holidays I pleaded with my mom so much so that at last she granted permission to do temporary ironing but made me promise to her that I wont cut it too short after ironing. Well, I tried ironing and it was a disaster! My thigh length hair became knee length.. It attracted so many eyes on the streets and shopping malls and I received so many requests to divulge my secret of charming hair *Rolls eyes* I hate it when people stare.. Well anyway I've learned my lesson- Not to iron my hair again without cutting it short :).
Well..In short - I'm now in a kind of dilemma..Torn between the wish to have a new 'easy to manage' hair and a desire to keep my 'hard to manage but lovely to look at' hair. As for now..Until I change my mind again.. I guess I'll have to stand on the top of a tower, put my hair down through a window and wait for my Prince charming :D
