I rinsed out the dye and noticed that my hair was the color I had so actively been avoiding the past few years.
Yesterday, on my way to work, I saw not one but two women with remarkably long hair. Like, past-their-butts long. They weren't together--one was on the R train, the other in the lobby--but the rarity of seeing of two adult women with Crystal-Gayle-esque hair within about 20 minutes united them in my mind foreverrrrrr.
As I've mentioned, I wore my hair super-long until fifth grade. What I didn't mention is that I grew it back out to my waist when I was a freshman in high school.
Although I've gone back and forth between short and long hair since then, my hair's never been THAT long again. It's not that I think I'm too old for super-long hair or that I can't get it to that length again--I actually can. But my hair just doesn't look and feel the way it did back when I wore ridiculous casual attire.
Maybe that's the trade off. Maybe I have to dress like a '90s nightmare to get my hair so healthy-looking again. (Probably not.)
ANYWAY, today's Quick Question: What's the longest your hair has ever been? How old were you?
