Le monsieur was looking over my shoulder as I was pinning this image and asked (for probably the 43,834th time since we’ve been together), “are you going to let your hair grow long like that?”
My answer was the same as it’s always been, “my hair doesn’t grow long.” Which is the truth, actually. I have really baby-fine, thin hair that disappears under its own weight once the length gets below my chin. I did grow it past my shoulders–once–when I was fifteen. It hit its maximum length, then started to fray. I cut it back to chin length when I was sixteen.
But I have to confess: for the first time that I can remember in my adult life, I’m happy with my hair right now. With both the color and cut. I’m not obsessing over what my next hairstyle will be. My hair is thinner than in my youth, but much less oily too. Still, it can look lank if I go more than a couple of days without washing, so in between shampoos I still use this “banana milk” from Leonor Greyl every other day or so to lift the hair a bit. It’s very gentle, and doesn’t dry out my hair or mess with the color. You only need a tiny bit, just massage on the scalp (not the ends). The bottle lasts for several months.
