What my hair is doing today - I cut my hair!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope everyone had a safe and pleasant holiday season. I woke up one morning and decided to cut my hair to my shoulders. For those of you that are just visiting Good Hair Diaries for the first time, I successfully grew my naturally curly hair out from close to armpit length to bra-strap length within a year and a half.

January 2010 - Nearly Armpit Length

May 20122 - Bra-Strap Length

My next goal was mid-back length and then finally waist length. So why did I cut my hair if it was on the right track?

1. My ends were looking raggedy and thin. They needed to go and I was happy to let them go. I decided to cut right up to the thickest part of my hair.

2. I wanted to start a 'Grow With Me Challenge', and I didn't feel that the majority of my viewers would appreciate a challenge where I was gunning for waist length and they were just hoping to have their hair just reach their shoulder blades. I wanted an opportunity to show everyone how I grew my hair out the first time, and to help everyone realize that it isn't impossible.

3. It's just hair! It will grow back...

January 2013 - Shoulder Length Hair

My new hair goals for 2013
  1. Keep my ends thick and split end free
  2. Grow my hair to full armpit length
  3. Protective style more
I will be sharing my new hair regimen for 2013 in my next post, so stay tuned for that as I chat about how I plan to reach my hair goals.

Would you consider big chopping if your hair was long but not at it's best? Let us know in the comment section below.

Have a good hair day and remember to love your hair!
