So I took the plunge and had a 10 inch ponytail cut off of my head! It was a bit nerve wracking since I've had long hair for a few years now, but it also feels great. :) My head feels so much lighter now! I opted for a shoulder length cut, and figure that it will probably get shorter but I will do it gradually. So no more difficult to deal with, tangley, static, long hair. It's shorter, simpler and a lot easier to deal with now. I even use half the amount of shampoo! I am excited to travel with this new short hair.
