I’ve been growing out my hair for SIX MONTHS now and I’m finally coming out of the awkward over-grown pixie cut mullet-y phase. A couple of weeks ago I had a handful of my classmates cut my hair and take some of the weight out of the back and it looks and feels SO much better! Props to anyone out there with the strength to grow out a pixie cut because it’s a long and grueling process.

So! Now that my hair looks like an actual hair cut again I’m sure you’re dying to know what my hair plan is for the rest of the year. My plan is to continue taking Hair, Skin and Nails supplements, NOT dyeing or bleaching my hair, and getting it trimmed 1/2 – 1 inch every three months or so.
My hair still has holes in the sides from where my hair was cut around my ears when it was short and originally I thought about chopping it out the next time I get my hair cut, but now that I think about it I think I might let it slowing fade out as I trim it throughout the year. As my hair gets longer I’m sure it’ll become less noticeable. Also, I feel like it would be really crummy if I waited so long to get my hair to grow out just to make a big chop again when I could just trim it a little here and there and let the problem (holes) take care of themselves.
My ultimate goal as far as length is concerned changes from week to week because I’m being super indecisive. Sometimes I want my hair shoulder length, sometimes mid-back, sometimes anywhere in between! I figure I’ll make that decision when I get there. For now I want it to grow shoulder length at least so I can do different hairstyles on myself!
I’m really excited about working towards my hair goals this year (my hair grows really fast too so possibly reach them ???). I’ve had a pixie cut for so long it’ll be nice to do the complete opposite. Between my hair, fitness, and career goals I’m going to be a completely different person at the beginning of 2018 than I was at the beginning of 2016 (and even 2017)! It’s crazy how much can change in a year or two!
