Topic: A short business plan example
June 15, 2019 / By Hatty Question:
I haven't cut my hair for about 13 years now and i am almost 14 now but i am thinking about getting it cut or at least trimmed now.
But i am not sure about it, i want to get it cleaned up because it is a bit rubbish at the ends and now for example. if i am in a shop i will hear girls behind me laughing at my hair.
On the other hand, my mates all tell me that i should not get it cut because my hair makes me ME !
But i am torn between it :(
Please help me, any advice, personal experiences or comments. Please be kind.

It is wonderful that you have kept your hair from childhood.
I've just seen a photo you posted from a while back - blonde and wavy. It seems to be in fine condition and very very beautiful. No wonder your mates tell you not to cut it. You remind me of a girl in my village where I used to live, also called Lucy, who is grown up now.
Those girls sniggering behind your back in the shop are either jealous or they do not understand or value who you are. So many girls (and women) cut their own hair about until it is ugly, and then cannot bear if other girls have nicer hair than their own, so they will be mean.
I saw one film on TV about a gang of girls in England, all with short fashionable haircuts, who grabbed a girl with beautiful long hair and held her down and cut it off. That was so that they could feel good about themselves.
I do not know many people who have kept their hair from childhood. It is indeed very special. Later on you have to be careful because boys will fall in love with it, and you have to know if they love you rather than your hair. In truth, having fallen in love with a long haired girl myself, it is a bit of both. It makes me want to love her and to know who she is, what she values, what her plans are, and whether there is any possibility for us to be together. If it doesn't work, then I must give her up however long and lovely her hair is, and this is what you must expect of most of those who fall in love with you. You only choose the one you are happy with.
If you are worried about the ends, check for splits. If there are any (and quite often with hair uncut for that long, there aren't any, only healthy tapers to a point), then you need to trim these off with sharp scissors. Get embroidery scissors if you can, since these are the sharpest, and only cut off as much as you need. Do not feel silly if only 1/4 inch comes off and you just get a dusting on the palm of your hand. That is good.
Better to do it yourself rather than trust it to a salon, unless you are absolutely sure a salon understands very long hair. If they talk about "framing the face" leave immediately! They will ruin your hair, and you'd spend years and years on repeat business trying to put things right, and all you get at the end is shorter and shorter hair.
Otherwise, when you brush your hair, do not tug at the tangles. Instead always brush the ends first. The bottom 4 inches, and only when they are clear, brush the next 4 inches into the ends, and so on up to the scalp. That way, you may find that your ends are no longer rubbish at all. Doing this also distributes the natural oils which helps prevent breakage.
Thank you so much for asking this question - you are a breath of fresh air here!

I suggest not. Style meets chemistry meets biology: We're talking hair coloring.
Playing with chemicals is not like playing with clothes, or doing a manicure, there are penalties for playing chemicals in the lab. Even hair color experts at the salon are not rocket scientists, they do a bang up dye jobs to their clients or their own hair.
Example: "My hair is right about armpit length as it is, but I've severely damaged it by bleaching it all at once. As a student of cosmetology myself, I would have to say that it was probably one of the worst mistakes I could have ever made."
Another example: ok i did my hair yesterday i DIDN'T bleach it ,but im not sure what its called but she took the color out of my hair and then dies it a blond color and my head was on fire it killed me so after that i hated my hair color so i colored it my self a darker color, it looked so ugly and it burned me again it rully hrt so after i washed it my mom checked it for me and found small spots of blood all over my top scalp like over 20 of em now im scared and don't know why its there is it from the color am i sick and something is wrong ??

The allergic reaction was caused by a well-known brand of semi-permanent hair dye Chloe used to turn her hair black for a Hallowe’en party. . . . . called for beauty bosses to ban hair dye chemical PPD (para-phenylenediamine) from the shelves. 11-04-11
The chemical is not new and is present in a number of brands of dark hair colours, acting to help adhere the dye to the hair so that it doesn't wash out. It’s made from coal tar and is used in both permanent and semi-permanent hair colours. It’s well-known to be a cause of serious allergic reactions -- including something called contact dermatitis which can lead to rashes, blisters, and open sores.
PPD is sometimes added to black henna tattoos and that using them is not safe. Allergic reactions usually begin within two to 10 days following application. One bad reaction can lead to sensitivities to other products such as hair dye, sunblock and some types of clothing dyes. Oftentimes, it's using the product a second or third time.

I think it would be extremely beneficial to get your hair cut. It will make it healthier, noticeably healthier to others, and hair thats too long (and I'm assuming yours is considering you haven't cut it in 13 years) can look not so great. I think everyone looks great with hair right below the shoulder, so if you're feeling brave enough go for it!
Get the ends cleaned up by a professional and ask them what the minimum length they would recommend cutting off would be. If you get a trim, your hair will look prettier and fuller.
how long is it?? ... well if u havnt cut you hair in 13 years then i would want to keep my record.. but it would also be kinda cool to go to the hair dressers for the first time.. u could get it specially done.. like curl it or krimp it !! :D ..
plus it would be MUCH easier to cope with your hair if it was shorter... but its completely up to yoou :D xxxxxxxxxx
