So you might not know this about me… but I used to have long hair. Really long hair. That flowed down my back in ringlets and, if I left conditioner in it, sausage curls. Basically, I had captain hook hair.
And of course, I had all manner of people taking an interest in my hair and what I did with it. Generally, if someone took an interest, they were going to tell me I needed to cut it.
