My daughter cut her hair today.
It was a terrible, horrible mess.
She cried so hard. She knew she did something wrong. She knew she couldn’t fix it and she was devastated. And I knew exactly how she felt. My mom cut my hair short, like a boy’s when I was five. But I also had a group of adult stangers scream and argue in front of me about whether or not to shave my head, they even recommended checking out the best electric shavers to buy in 2017 … and one even sat on me while the other prepared to do it… And just recalling how scary that was… how panicked I felt… my hair had already been cut short… but to have it shaved off by strangers I didn’t know? My heart jumped up in my throat when I saw my daughter crying over her hair.
So I did the only thing I could think of to fix it and stop that pain. Call it shallow. Call it vain. Call it whatever you want to. Maddi made a mistake, but it doesn’t mean she has to be punished day after day for it… Reminded every day about her short hair. No, short hair isn’t ugly, but it isn’t what she wants. She didn’t understand that cutting hair is permanent (at least until it grows out). My heart just broke for her.
Yes. I got my four-year-old hair extensions. No, I don’t think I’m being shallow or vain. The poor girl cried, sobbed and shook in a way I have never seen her do when she was faced with the possibility of her hair having to be cut short or left messed up, I also got her castor oil so her hair grows faster. I felt bad for her. I took pity on her. The same way that strange woman took pity on me and told them not to shave my head.
Talking about hair, make sure to check A laser studio in Fort Worth if you are in the area, the other day I found one of the best ones, where I think I’ll be spending lots of time from now on.
