Post# 7

It's been almost 6 months since I posted. 
All of my plans have been put on hold for now due to a family illness. I have been the main caretaker and have not had the right time to do my trim. I want to do it with a happy state of mind, clear thinking and not regret anything.
I also wanted to do some before videos and honestly, I just lost the drive to do hair related projects during such a difficult time in my life. I did get a few photos.

I hope anyone following this blog will understand the reasons for the pause. I fully intended on posting every month. My hair is probably about 84-85" right now.I honestly quit measuring it for now. It is longer than I ever imagined it would ever be. When I reached ankle length my family member began their downward journey. Other issues in my life also zapped my drive. Stress caused a major shedding phase too.My hair has been surviving things I have put it through. Having to jump up in the middle of the night to care for the ill several times, being away from home has made me start wearing my hair up in a bun to sleep, which I really hate to do. Combing, brushing and washing became a luxury. I never imagined my life could change so much so fast. Knots were the enemy from hardly combing it or having the patience to care for it. So I have left my hair alone and not been thinking about it much. That is how to get your hair long in the first place right?

I also was afraid to cut it fearing it would be unlucky during this hard time. I needed all the positive forces I could keep!

My hair journey has been long. When the time is right I plan to trim.
For now please enjoy what I have posted over the last 10 years online.

Finding my best hair length will continue...just with a pause for a while.

Here is a special Hair History Video for you which includes hair progress and some of my first bun photos. It ends at 2010 at about lower calf length.

Thanks for listening. I will be back...
Comments here will be approved asap so please be patient. Also visit my guestbook. Thank you.
