CG for 3 days! (pics) + haircut help please?

RenaBananaRenaBanana Posts: 60Registered Users
I know it's silly to be getting all excited after only 3 days of going CG, but....I'm excited after only 3 days!!!
The first two pictures are from before, and the second 2 are from after. Please excuse my goofy face. I was really surprised at how curly my hair was in the second photo, and couldn't really compose myself lol.

So now my other question is this...if I were to chop off my hair, how do you think I should do it? I've been thinking of going for a haircut that is an inch or two above my shoulders, which is the length that my hair is generally kept at. As far as what kind of haircut though, I have no idea. Any suggestions (descriptions or photos) would be greatly appreciated!

    You are adorable!!! Wow - what a great improvement in only 3 days! Thanks for sharing pics!!! That's a lot of hair to chop off...have you thought about donating it to "Locks of Love" or an organization like that?

    Here's a couple of ideas...

    Please please please let us know what you decide and we love pics here!!! :flower:

    Thanks so much kasden! I was surprised at how quickly my hair reacted to the change. Granted, the top of my head is kind of frizzy, but it seems like that happens to everyone in the beginning..

    Oh my gosh, the first picture is amazing. Her hair acts almost exactly how mine does at that length. I'm saving that picture, thank you!!

    edit: Whoops, I forgot to say that I am definitely planning on donating my hair. That's the whole reason I started to grow it :D Although, I probably will go for an option other than Locks of Love since the BBB says that they do not qualify as a non-profit organization.

    You could have it donated to that place that makes hair mats that can be used to soak up oil like the Gulf of Texaco.

    I vote don't cut it. But I don't have to deal with your your hair every day and can understand why you would want to cut it. I think either of the cuts posted by kasden would look good, but I really like the first one. Glad the CG method is working for you.
