The Great Hair Debate

I love my hair! I love the HUGE curls and the thickness (I feel like I have a lion's mane when my hair is long). I can have the best of both worlds a little easier than most. If I want straight hair, I have a flat iron and 3 hours (well, an hour at the length right now). If I want short hair, I get it all whacked off.....and when I want long, flowing locks again, I whine like a 2 year old for the next 2 to 3 years until it reaches my waist, and I am content!!!!
I am at that point right NOW.....I'm miserable. I want my long hair back! I can't honestly ask "what was I thinking?!!?", because I know (this time) that I cut it because it had reached a point of being unhealthy, and I did not want to pay the hundreds of dollars that it was going to cost me to "condition" it back to life. From now on, I will take proper vitamins, specifically for my hair and it's health.
This is me with short hair (currently it's a darker brown though):

And this WAS me with long hair (as a matter of fact, about 2 months before I cut it off):

So, yes, I'm whining. I know that I can only let it grow if I want it to be LONG and FLOWING again.....but why, as women, do we torture ourselves this way? Why do we want the best of both worlds (OH, wait....if I had TONS of money I could have it both ways, because then I could afford to go get E X T E N T I O N S, and I could have long hair until it grew out, but it probably wouldn't be healthy then either!!!) LOL

Must have patience....must have strength to overcome....must shave head until this BAD HAIR day/week/month goes away-hehehehehehehee

ANYWHO, hope everyone is having a good week so far (all 2 of you that actually read my blogs *and I love you both* hehehee)

I think you look cute with both styles. You are a pretty girl. You can pull off almost any look.

I think we have the same hair. Only yours has prettier curls. And mine has the texture of a chow. I like mine long and luxurious...but hate the up keep. So I settled into a mid length layered cut. Best of both worlds I tell ya!

Gigi, your hair is beautiful in both long and short styles. How lucky you are so blessed. :D I have mine cut short so I can make it hold a curl.

I know how you feel once I thought someone was just gonna do my hair but they cut it too.

I honestly have no clue why women torture themselves in such a way but if you ever find out let me know.

Long hair seems like such a burden to me. Your one of the few women who can actually pull off short hair, i think i prefer it.
