Cutting your hair can seem like a great idea but there are a few things to think about before the shears touch your strands, especially if you are considering something drastically shorter. Click the notes for the 5 reasons not to cut your hair. –– Kelly Rowe

Skipping Washing Won’t Be An Option 

Like to skip days washing your hair? Cut your hair short and the ability to skip days becomes less and less the shorter you go. Because there is not much length, your hair looks greasier quicker, and messy and spiky hair from sleeping takes washing it to reset the style. A simple brushing won’t do.

Big Braids

Braids require a lot of hair. Even girls with long hair can have trouble plumping up their plait. If you cut your hair say good bye to big braids and hello to micro ones.

It’s Going to Take Extra Long To Grow Back

Hair grows ¼ inch to ½ inch a month. Remember that when you cut it all off and calculate approximately how long it will take to grow back.

A Break Up/Quitting a Job/Anything Traumatic

The sudden urge to change your hair when something monumentally bad happens is a common story. We seem to think that if we cut our hair we will somehow get rid of the bad memories. But if you actually take the plunge, waiting for it to grow back can become a constant reminder of those bad things that happened.

You Have To Turn Bad Hair Days Into Good Hair Days

Long hair leaves you options for ponytails and buns to hide a bad hair day; short hair…not so much. You are going to have to style every day.
