I finally took the jump yesterday and cut at least 4 inches off of my hair!
It was getting way too long and stringy in the front, now it's finally all my natural color.
I stopped coloring my hair in October 2008 and I have just let it grow out since then. I was never happy with the color when my hair is died dark so growing it out was a better option for me. The key was to have my girl color it darker and in a way that the color blended and wasn't a noticeable line. It's been a long process going from blond to natural but I'm glad I've done it.
