It took a minute but I feel much better now that I have been playing with my hair.Well at least you caught it early and got a fresh cut. Maybe it's out of your system and you can move forward positively today.
I have zero idea how to style straight hair but I have been keeping it in one to two bantu knots and conditioning with a little dab of olive oil every night. It feels much better, and I did check a length.
I'm really shocked just how full and thick my hair looks. The salon experience was great too, they gave me a bomb scalp massage. For the haircut the hairstylist showed me how much he was going to cut, he explained to me why he thought that much should be cut, asked me how much I preferred, and he cut exactly that amount. I will go back to Too Groovy for my press and trims.
