    i finally did it today.

    ive always managed to stop myself, knowing that cutting all my hair off would be a bad idea. it looks awful, but i dont really care. but now when people see me, i know theyll ask me questions about it and i wont really know how to answer.

    Well, Not Chop Exactly....

    When I get really pissed off I want to SHAVE my head. Completely. And if not for the fact that most of the time someone's there to stop me, I probably would! LOL

    Chopped It Off Too!

    My hair was shoulder length. And I cut it very short with a pair of scissors over a week ago. I did it myself of course. But i did it more out of frustration since I have untameable hair.... My hair is wavy and tends to frizz up, and it gets on my last nerve, even though its...

    Well... I Kinda Did

    Things have been a little on the crappy side for me lately, although there are some good points too.. I decided I needed a change!  I cut about 10 inches off of my hair, gave me a funky new look and called it good..  It's shoulder length and layered now..  It feels...

    I Actually Do This.

    When I am feeling really upset or something, I will cut inches off of my hair.  Gets rid of the dead ends, I guess.

    I Actually Did Once...

    I don't remember why, but I was so frustrated & so stressed that at one point I ran my hand through my hair & ripped out a huge chunk of hair. I hadn't meant to pull that hard. It was an accident. When I saw how much hair was in my hand, I started crying. It scared me. I'm...

    I Just Cut My Hair...

    I have had the urge to cut my hair so many times before, but this time, I really did. I only cut off a few inches, but it took everything I had not to just shave it. I'm pretty upset that people at school wont know that I did it myself, I don't know why I even care. I was just so...

    My Experience (i Shaved My Head)

    This happens to me too. Whenever I get really upset or feel depressed about life I feel like cutting my hair. I often end up doing it, too. The latest time I went extreme. I completely shaved my head. And guess what? I don't regret it. I had been having nightly episodes where I'd...

    Scissors! Gimme!

    "Off! Off! I must chop it off! Every strand. Make it nice and short. Bob. Even shorter than a bod. Just get rid of it all!!! I don't need a hairdresser. I'll just do it myself." My poor hair has to hear my mind think that so many times and hear my mouth mutter that often. I think...

    Like Britney Spears

    When I'm upset I do get the urge to either chop my hair off short or just shave it off. Thankfully I haven't done it, cause I know I would regret it later. But at the time, I just feel like it would be shedding part of myself or my problems or something. Maybe one day I...
