My hair got really long this year and I couldn't have been more happy. However, it wasn't in very good condition at all. I tried everything to fix this. I stopped dying my hair, used coconut oil as a mask once a week and even stopped wearing it in a pony tail. Sadly, none of these really worked and so the only thing left to do was to cut it.
My sister is my hairdresser which is good and bad. Good because I can pretty much have my hair done as much as I want for next to nothing but bad because we sometimes get into arguments as to what is best for my hair. I only wanted 2 inches off but she told me it was so badly damaged I needed at least 4 off so reluctantly (after a small fight) I gave in.
In truth, I think it looks a lot healthier and I've now promised to have my hair cut every month as I was only doing it twice a year before. I know. We also dyed it dark using Superdrug Colour Sensations in 4.0 because the blonde highlights from last year were showing through and it just looked so brassy and added to the damaged look.
So the moral of the story is... always listen to your hairdresser.. and sometimes your sister!
Do you have any hair drama stories?
