CHOPS...






I inexplicably missed celebrating the one year anniversary of chopping all my hair off, which was last month. It's been liberating and I now don't relate to the old me who had acres of dead protein to attend to daily. My spend on conditioner has reduced to almost nothing. I often don't use it and if I need to, I'll rub a little Kiehl's Creme with Silk Groom on the ends, the bottle of which lasts forever. No, really, I can't remember when I bought it - it must have been over five years ago, possibly ten. How it hasn't gone off I have no idea but there's still probably enough left to keep me going for another three years.

The only thing about having short hair is that it noticeably grows out and can start to do weird, unacceptable things in the process. I haven't had mine cut for ages and in growing an inch and a half it's taken it upon itself to go really flat, with an added housewife vibe. I finally made an appointment with my really expensive, but so good I've rued the few times I've betrayed her, hairdresser for next week. I can't wait to get my inner Daria back on again.

I'm sure you're rocking the look! Did I mention I had a pretty significant chop as well? From not-quite-shoulder to really short. It is really liberating. Hair is faster (and as you say cheaper) to wash. And long drives along winding coastal roads become more manageable! xx

RD - Are you doing a lot of driving along winding coastal roads??? Must hear more about this. I don't think I've ever seen you with short hair, but can imagine it's a good look. Also, babies seem to like pulling hair. xx

I sooo miss the days of having short locks, but alas, I can't afford the upkeep.

Kelli - I know what you mean!
