My hair was damaged, and it got progressively worse over the last month. My hair was not gummy and stretchy, but instead chronically dry and would split if i so much as looked at it.
Today I decided enough was enough after taking my ponytail out and seeing a big matted knot that was nothing but white dots and split ends. I could see a halo of broken off hairs. I had about an inch or so of outgrowth, and the clippers were calling me. After 3 hours I thought screw it, and shaved it off! I feel much better now. Once I was done shaving I felt relieved, and it's nice to see my virgin hair in all it's mousy glory!
P.S: If anyone knows how to tell what colour and level my natural colour is, please let me know :)
