    I had beautiful long curly hair

    and one day, I decided to donate it, and I have kept it short ever since, because my hair doesn't curl anymore! It's just really frizzy and poofy, and nasty wavy crap! But, at least I'm growing it out now just to see what it does! I hope I can get my curls back!

    Donated It

    About a month ago, I went with a friend to donate my hair. My friends braid was 10 inches and mine was 12 inches. It was for a good cause, but I so miss my hair. Long hair is so much easier. All I had to do was brush it. Now that my hair is so much shorter I have to blow dry it...

    I hate my short curly hair.

    It looked better when it was longer. I usually do straighten it but I still wish it was longer. I cut my hair thinking it would look better but no.

    My long nappy hair was a security blanket

    that made me accept that I have deep insecurities & lack confidence or ambition. Masked acceptance

    I've always had long hair.

    I believed it was the one thing that made me feminine. When I ran Cross Country in high school, it felt like a pat on the back. So thick. So red. So long. I loved my long hair. It wasn't until much later that I discovered my hair is actually naturally wavy!

    My hair was as long as my butt.
