Hair Gone Wild

This blog through the years has brought you updates on various physical conditions-- my stomach, my liver, my weight, my toe, and my hair. I think it´s time for a hair update!

For those of you who don´t know, a quick recap. Last year I was very sick, and as a result of sickness, most of my hair fell out. So last April I cut it all off to even it up with the new hair I was growing.

It´s kind of funny to me to look back at pictures from when I arrived in Brazil. My hair was so much shorter! Here´s a reminder--

Pretty short! Well clearly over the months it has grown, seeing as how this picture was taken 4 months ago.

As my hair has grown, I have become keenly aware that I am certainly my father´s daughter as far as hair goes. Well, how my dad´s hair used to be... :)

For example, yesterday I was downtown walking in the rain. It wasn´t pouring, but a normal rain. I have wavy hair, and so rain tends to freak out the hair. When I got home and looked in the mirror, this is what I saw--

It was pretty straight when I left the house in the morning! Here are some more photos to demonstrate how my hair can be--

Also notice that my hair has come back with cool highlights!

I´m not sure if my hair has come back more wavy, or if it is just like this because it´s so short. Really, I´m tempted to keep it short. It´s so low-maintenence!!!!! I think a sign that I´m getting old is that I just said those words. But I think I´m going to grow my hair out again for a while. I want to have and enjoy long hair while I´m still young. :)

My hair is to a length also now where I can blow dry it semi-straight, which is nice for options. Here´s a photo of my hair more straight and pulled back.

So what do we think? Do we like the short hair, or should we go long again for a while? I hear that guys like longer hair, and we know how I need a man to kill the bugs in my life. :) Ha, thanks for all the comments on the previous post, guys.

I think you need to post a picture of you with long hair so people can be well-informed before they vote!
