hair-lema

About once a year I have a hair-lema. I'll be in 'I'm growing my hair long' stage and doing fine but maybe a tad frustrated because it never seems to grow. Then I spot images like this and I want to chop the little 'long' length I have all off. 


And I know it's the same story every time. It's all fun and cute - the cute-I-like you feeling lasts about a week or two. Then it's all BOO! I regret it because I really want that long long hair again.

Or I see images like this, and think why?!

Just in a hair rut I guess! Am I alone, how do you resist the scissors - or better yet: How can I make my hair longer faster?! 

Kicking off what will sure be a fun long weekend with a trip to salon this morning! Will be followed 4 days of  out of town friend fun, group dinners, drinks (lots) and a Football game {Go CHARGERS! Boo Bears!}

  1. I totally feel you, Taylor... I always see photos of great styles and want to achieve them but then I get it cut and cry a little inside.

  2. i read somewhere that using biotin oil can help and that mane & tail shampoo really work (i think it's available at cvs and other pharmacies). that being said, i feel your pain! but to have hair like that pic of jessica biel would be amazeee! enjoy your long weekend, especially the game! so fun to tailgate!

  3. I take biotin and hair vitamins from solgar. They work well in adding length, although they're not the miracle you may be looking for. I'm always in a hair rut, because I have really thin hair that I constantly wish was thicker...

  4. I go through the same thing lady, only with color! Every single fall I tell myself I want some sort of rich auburn-y color, and I hum & haw and people talk me out of it, so I stay blonde year round. One of these days I'll take the plunge... I do LOVE Olivia's hair here though, so soft & swingy! But am definitely a long hair fan in general!

  5. I can completely relate. If you're one of those girls who can pull off both looks then I say just go with it! It will always grow back. If you're looking for better results I hear prenatel vitamins hair growth are awesome for that (I know, it's kind of weird).

  6. Haha, I love the title of this post. I can totally relate, hair choices can be such a difficult decision!

  7. I get the same thing - I grow it out all year & then chop it off during the summer heat wave. It's a vicious cycle!

  8. Story of my life! I spend years growing out my hair, only to (quickly) get tired of taking care of it and chop it off, and immediately regret it and work on growing it back -- over and over again. I'm about half way through that cycle right now!

  9. I have the opposite problem, I never want a haircut! I'm a bit too obsessed with my long hair. I've heard that prenatal vitamins are the best way to get your hair to grow faster. And I use olive oil on the ends about once a week!

  10. My vote is to hang in there and grow it! So worth it! But I am biased as I always think that EVERYONE looks better with long hair...

  11. I have a hair post going up next week, but I'm actually chopping mine similar to OP's that you posted! Very excited...and who am I kidding, a bit nervous, too. If you really want long hair, just be patient, resist- it will grow!

  12. i'm currently trying to grow my hair out and my best pick-me-up is to go and get the layers cleaned up and the ends trimmed a tiny bit. it has worked so far to prevent me from chopping it all off!

  14. Same story here. I went to get a haircut last night and I wanted to cut it all off, but I was strong and I only got 1 inch off, I've been growing out forever. So stay strong and be patient.

  16. stay away from heat styling - that helps my hair grow faster and allow for less cuts :)
