It's all gone!!!
Well, not really.
While I feel like it is all gone, most people's reactions have included the phrase "it's still pretty long",
On Friday I went to the Locks of Love event at my daughter's school and had the stylists in training (yep they were students... no, they weren't very good yet... poor Ks hair!) cut 10 inches off of my hair. I would not allow them to do anything else, preferring to trust my hair to a stylist trained in cutting curly hair.
I had my Devacurl cut yesterday afternoon, and I will say this: it was indeed different. First of all, the stylist cut my hair dry. Then she washed it via the "no-poo" method. She then put gel in my dripping wet hair (this was the part I could not seem to wrap my brain around on my own) and then gently squeezed the moisture out of my hair. I got to sit under a hair dryer and watch the most insane video ever -- it was a product video showing a stylist creating the craziest hairstyles. It was mesmerizing. After my hair was dry, the stylist showed me how to finish styling my curls. The picture above shows my hair the next day, and although I am not ready to commit to using $20/bottle no-poo, conditioner and gel (yes that is $60 total), I really like how my hair turned out.
But this blog is not about hair cutting techniques, it is about running. And while the story of the cut is interesting to me, I bet you might be wondering about its effect on my running. Today I got up nice and early like I normally do and I went for a run with RP, and this morning I did not have to wrangle my hair.
No ponytail-ing, no braiding, I just got up and went!
Ahhhhhhhh, the FREEDOM!!!
I could really get used to this.
