Pixie Cut to Rapunzel- Will this newbie make it?
Jan 9th, 2010 at 10:56pm
 
Hello, everyone!  You all can call me Katherina, and I'm new here.  Smiley

About this time last year, I was forced to cut off nearly all of my hair, thanks to a very bad over-the-sink dye job.

Now it's a pixie cut.  A very comfy, carefree pixie cut, I must say, yet I miss my regal braids and French twists.   Sad

I'd like to grow my now dye-free, medium blonde hair to perhaps a few inches past my shoulders.  Any tips for a Rapunzel-in-training?  How can I keep myself from chopping it all off in frustration?  How can I gracefully grow out my bangs, without looking like a punk rocker?

I need help from as many hair experts as I can find... and I believe that I've come to the right place.  Smiley

In general: regular trims, good conditioning, and quality products. Oh yes, and loads of patience. Roll Eyes

Some say the best method is to play the waiting game. If you still want to cut after 2 weeks, then cut - just not too much. Sometimes a little trim is all it takes to feel less frustrated.

But really, if you want long hair badly enough, you won't chop it all off.

They're called headbands. Roll Eyes Barrettes work too. And bobby pins! And just what is wrong with looking like a punk rocker anyway?

In any case, welcome aboard. I'm sure the others will chime in with their own ideas soon enough. Cheers!

Welcome aboard!

I third a lot of the information already given. Another trick I loved to use to grow out my bangs were micro claw-clips. I'd use two or four clips to just twist and clip them back. They'd make cute little accents above my face.

Not really sure how to help with the chop urge. I absolutely hate going to the salon, so I usually put off trims for as long as possible.  Smiley
