Yes, it happens to the best of all of us. We somehow get bored with our tresses resulting in the hair yucks. What to do you say?
Many people think of cutting as a first option when suffering strand boredom. If you have long hair you've nurtured for years, the absolute worst thing you can do is search for a hairdresser equipped with a pair of scissors or to reach for your own.
Beware of cutting in haste and repenting in leisure. It's a very real hair syndrome.
If you must consider scissor action, take an armed hair guard with you, or a friend you can trust. The worst thing you can do is wake up after a scissors session and mourn the hair you've spent many years growing.
