I Cut 3 More Inches, or Meet “Gloria”
Sooo…on Tuesday I went to Hair Rules Salon for a keratin treatment. Girls, the two-textures thing is just killing me. It’s so hard to manage! So Hair Rules’ famed, freckled owner Anthony Dickey persuaded me to get a keratin. Keratin treatments basically just infuse hair with tons of nutrient-rich proteins that smooth your strands, removing the puff and frizz from the new growth. It’s a great option for Grow-Out Transitioners like me, because it smooths my roots without chemically altering the curl pattern (a’la relaxers)…so the difference between my unrelaxed and relaxed textures isn’t so jarring. And now, when I wash and dry my hair it’s so much less tangly and super-manageable!
So that happened, and then I cut three more inches of hair. Can you believe it? I was just like fuck it, I already cut a foot! Let’s go bananas! I think it’s too short to be a lob, but it’s definitely too long for a bob. I’m not sure how to classify my new cut. But I’ve named her Gloria. Ladies, this is Gloria. Gloria, these are my girls. Play nice and don’t talk about me behind my back.
