    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...

    Relief, Guilt , and Confusion

    I have been in a fifteen year destructive cycle of attacking my hair with scissors.  I do not understand why I make myself look like a freak when I really want beautiful hair.  I have been married for 21 years and the marriage has been a ruthless one.  When I first...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    When I got married I had been growing my hair for ages, trying to make it look gorgeous. It was lovely and long and brunnette and shiny. Unfortunately, I shouldn't have married my husband when I did. We have been married for over 2 years now, and I think we are more or less happy...
