Cutting my hair tomorrow

Cassei23Cassei23 Posts: 8Registered Users
I'm getting a much awaited haircut tomorrow, and to say that I'm nervous is quite the understatement! My 2c/3a curls, at the length they are right now, are just too hard to handle, so I'm planning on cutting at least 4 inches off (to clarify, this is 4 inches when wet. Who knows what shrinkage will do). I know that doesn't really sound like much at all, but for my hair, even a trim causes a huge change. In addition, I'm planning on straightening my hair, for the first time in six years (last time I straightened it, it wasn't even curly yet). All in all, I'm anxious to see what will happen tomorrow. Wish me luck!

    hey, :) .

    i might suggest having the stylist do it dry so they can see your hair's pattern/density and allow for that while doing amount want.

    4 inches trimmed off wet might look like 8 inches off once dried.

    How did it turn out? Hope you are happy with it!
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    Did it! Currently not sure how I'm feeling, since my hair is now temporarily straight, and I'm anxiously awaiting the return of my curls. I know for a fact that (as I was warned about) my stylist cut way too much. My hair straight right now is about the length I was going for when curly, and I know the shrinkage is going to be insane... I tried to be very clear with what I wanted, but it was the stylist's first time working with me, so... Let's just say I may end up with considerably less hair than I intended. It's either going to be worse than I expect or better than I expect. Fingers crossed for better, though worse is quite likely.

    I'll probably post again on this thread once it curls up again.
