I have been growing my hair long for as long as I can remember. Besides a brief bob about five years ago, I have had long, straight hair for most of my life. And I was over it!
I felt like it was almost too long to do anything with. If I curled it the weight of my hair would mean the curls would very quickly drop and look flat. I felt like I was constantly wearing it either a ponytail or a bun….and nothing else. It was very much the same old, same old, and I needed a change.
