I wish I could chop my hair off like that but my Darling Husband has begged me to never cut my hair short. Ughhh

@hisprettygirl:  Hmm just looked at the locks of love guidelines.  I wasn’t sure if they would want mine, it’s really fine and has been dyed.  Looks like it might be okay though!

I am cutting my hair to a chin length bob! My hair is so damn THICK, it is such a pain when it is long

I swore I’d get it cut — not super-short, but at least 4-6″. But I completely shot myself in the foot, because Darling Husband looooves my longer hair, and made puppy-dog-eyes at me every time I said I was going to lose the length. 

And so, I kept it long, and have set up an elaborate maintainance plan to keep it healthy (fine blonde curly hair that I highlight and straighten does NOT happy hair make). Darling Husband has learned not to even *think* about complaining that my hair takes forever to do, because he knows I’ll be at the salon faster than he can say “ponytail!”

I’m already collecting pictures for my PWC.  Right now, it’s slightly above my bra band.

This is the current inspiration…

Dying and possibly cutting. I’ve been planning to keep my hair it’s natural color for my wedding for years. I had to stop dying it due to some issues, but I have a clean bill of health now and can do what I want. It’s just killing me and Fiance to wait to dye my hair strawberry blonde for another year πŸ˜› haha

@Crazyhair:  Oh man, sometimes I wonder how it ever got this complicated. My current products (some of them, anyway) are as follows:

Shampoo — John Frieda Luxurious Volume (blue)
Conditioner — JF  Full Body Conditioner (red)
Glaze — JF Clear Shine 
Serum — JF (purple)
Cream — Redken Sheer Straight 06
Spray — varying heat protecting sprays, usually something Tresemme
Dry Shampoo — also varies, no favorite 

Basically, it goes sometimes like this:

Day 1 Shampoo roots only, rinse. Condition from back of head through tips, comb through, leave for 5 minutes while shaving (or whatever), rinse and comb through. Blot dry with towel. Comb tiny drop of serum through lower 1/4, followed by small drop of cream through all but the roots. Blow dry. Light spritz with heat spray, flatiron.

Day 2 Hair up in bun or under shower cap — do nothing to it! Quick flatiron as needed for style.

Day 3 Dry shampoo, quick cool blow dry, flat iron as needed. Sometimes touchup with heat spray.

Day 4 Dry-glaze hair (i.e. apply glaze to dry hair, let sit for 20 mins), shampoo and condition as usual. Style as usual but without heat spray.

Day 5 Same as Day 2

Day 6 Same as Day 3

Repeat, with a few variations: sometimes I’ll substitute the glaze for the conditioner while in the shower, and skip the dry glaze that week. Some weeks I can go only 2 days between washing, other weeks as much as 4(!!!) with zero signs of dirt or grease. Weather plays a big factor, as does activity level.

Ladies, seriously, take this as a warning: DO THE PWC! Save yourselves if you can! Don’t fall into my madneessssss!

I’ve kept my hair long for over 3 years now (it’s all the way down to the small of my back!), first for my job and then my wedding πŸ™‚ I’m thinking of a layered shoulder length cut and colour for Christmas
