Being in Cosmotology for over 20 years I damaged my own hair over the years experimenting with different colors, hair pieces , about 2 years ago I decided to start wearing my natural hair more, especially during the summer. I do go back and forth with changing my look because I really get bored with the same looks over and over , but if you are going through hair changes and the phases of life a short cut is so easy to maintain, just wash and condition and go. I sometimes use clear gel because I bleach my hair so the clear gel is better to style my hair. I also like to wear headbands and scarfs just to add that extra to decorate my hair . I love the fact I don’t hv to keep up with my hair everyday as much anymore because of my busy schedule, but if you’re thinking about the big chop go for it.
