This is almost three years of growth. I stopped getting haircuts because I'd had very short hair for about seven years, and had grown bored.
I guess I got bored again, of how long it was taking to wash, how much shampoo I was using, dealing with constant tangles, and my hair getting in the way all the time. So I decided to donate to Locks of Love.
My goal with my new haircut was to still be able to get it into a ponytail, which I can just do. It's nice to have my head be lighter again, and I'll probably do a bit more styling than I've been doing lately, since it was so heavy and thick.
