Mmmm had this again tonight while out getting my hair cut. Note to self, try to get it cut sooner than once every 8 months lol. As usual I fell asleep while it was happening. Finally a hair stylist who understood that hair cuts are my relaxing time, and didn’t try to talk to me the entire time. 5 inches off, and that was a struggle because she really didn’t ant to cut my hair off. For whatever reason, hair stylists always seem to want to keep my hair long after falling in love with it. One of these days ill find someone like the woman in Vancouver. Walked in and said cut it, don’t care what you do, just don’t give me bangs. She said….you wanna go short? I said sure! She cut 10 inches off and when I didn’t cry, laughed and said " you can take more off" she basically only left me with 2 inches! Best time ever in a hair salon…..and let me tell you the people around me were freaking out….touching my butt to 2 inches. :) it’s only hair, it’ll grow back!

Oh yeah…so the tea? I’m still digging this a lot, though I always want to eat peanut butter when I drink it….maybe next time! Haha!

I had waist length hair for like 10 years. Donated to locks of love but still had hair past my shoulders. I can’t convince my hair stylist that I’m not growing my hair back out! Sort of wanting to go shorter but pretty chicken, heh. PS I hope to try this tea soon :)

Sil

Haha yeah I know what that’s like. This is a good tea…very subtle. I like it a lot :)

I had hair down past my waist in high school and then I donated 17 inches to locks of love. Boy was that a drastic change! Like you though, I didn’t have meltdown, I just said “well this feels a whole lot lighter!”

This reminds me that I need a haircut…

When I had mine cut from butt-length to pixie 18 or so years ago, I imagined all the negative vibes of the past going with the hair. It was very freeing, like all that crap ws stored in my hair. I’m glad my hair is long again, & other than an occasional trim, I’m keeping it! :)

I like foxy roxy’s…that’s the other tea in my butiki order that should arrive tomorrow :)

Sounds pretty good! I love short hair, and I get annoyed when hairdressers don’t believe me when I say it’s ok, I really do want it only 2 inches or so. I’m a big fan of the it’ll grow back thing. :)

I’m happy you got a hairdresser who was quiet too! That’s incredibly rare!

I have the opposite problem I have trouble find stylists who know what to do with my hair. It’s long, naturally curly and can easily get quite out of control. Ironically I get the most compliments on it if I walk out the door with my freshly washed bedhead;). I really have only found two stylists that I trust to touch it.. Ironically the best haircut I have ever had was in Ecuador. The stylist had a system. An assistant washed and combed your hair, the stylish asked how you wanted your layering, ( did you want your hair to curl under or flair out) than he pulled it into a pony tail either to the front or back of your head made one snip let the assistant blow it out and then perfection. Still seriously the best haircut I’ve ever had.

Yyz – that sounds awesome haha

Sil

Cavo – don’t I know it….always talking to me, trying to find out about me….bah!

Chelle

I have the same problem, hairstylist never want to shorten it unless I talk them into it. I have donated to locks of love too and about time to do it again. My hair is getting too long again and its going to be a hot summer!

OMGsrsly

I did something like that too! Actually, a couple weeks ago I shaved the sides and back down yo 1/2" and left the top long enough to pin curl or pomp for a somewhat respectable work ’do. Hair does indeed grow back. :)

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
