My curly locks had gotten down to my shoulder blades but maybe wasn’t in the best of shape. I had some damaged ends that were split and some chunks that didn’t want to curl. My stylist asked if she could clean up the damage and I said sure.
I lost quite a bit of length but she cut it while curly and I ended up with a mop that was much more bouncy and easy to style. It was refreshing and I got a ton of complements at work the next week. Lesson learned, sometimes you just gotta let go of the damage parts!
