I don't know what initially happened to it...too many hair products, dyes, maybe the fact that I pulled a chunk of it out when I was angry once, but I had some broken hair strands that were the perfect length to just stick up when I put my hair in a pony tail and they were annoying me...I stupidly took a pair of scissors to my locks, thinking that by cutting them, they'd just disappear within the longer strands and stop sticking up. I didn't think it was that many to be noticable. I was very wrong...ever since I cut it, I've been wanting to die like never before. Mostly because I know it'll be forever until it grows back and looks okay again. In the mean time, I have to brush it back to hide the damage I've done. I can't put it up, can't part it, etc. I've always hated how I looked. My hair was all I really had. Now I don't have that anymore either. Fiance says he doesn't even notice anything but that's because I've been hiding it by styling my hair certain ways. I'm seriously considering overdosing over this. I don't think I can take it. It's not something I can get used to. Not for a long time until it looks better anyway.
