Everyone that knows me knows that I love, love, love my long hair. However, there have been two times in my adult life that I’ve cut it short. I don’t mean shoulder length short. I mean really, really, almost boy-cut short. Why would I do that? There’s only one reason. My hair was very unhealthy and the best way to get to healthy hair was to cut all the dead hair off.
It’s actually pretty significant to me because both times I’ve done this, I was going through substantial life changes in which I had to let go of something that was “dead” in my life in order to move into a better future and so I went to my hairdresser and told her to chop off any dead hair so I could start over.
Don’t get me wrong, just because I cut it doesn’t mean I was going to live with short hair forever. So I bought my Hair, Skin, and Nails itWorks supplement from my daughter-in-law and used pure, organic grape seed oil from Trader Joe’s to help grow my hair back as quickly as possible. I also started juicing again for additional nutrients. Thankfully, my hair has grown nearly two inches in a little over a month!
If you want my advise… get rid of the dead ends… whether it’s your hair, your bf/gf, your job… whatever is sucking life out of your life and supplement it with things that will help you grow.
