A little less than a year ago I made a huge change and chopped off over 8 inches of my hair. It was a big leap for me but I enjoyed it and I didn’t regret my decision at all. I think that’s because the timing was right for the change. If you are thinking about chopping some hair but you aren’t sure if you’re ready, I encourage you to read my post that I wrote right after I cut it, because I think it sums up how I knew I was ready to do it. I mean to be honest it was still scary, I definitely peed myself a little while it was being cut and there was DEFINITELY an adjustment period after, but it felt good overall.
Now I am well into the process of growing out a lob, and I think I have some pretty good insight on this hair journey as well.
But first if you don’t feel like reading that previous post, here are some photos of how much I chopped off…
It was a lot. I think I lost 5lbs in an hour. There was a healthy sized muskrat of hair on the floor around me. It looked like we killed a Sasquatch. Sh*t got real.
I kept it short for a while, trimming it along the way but eventually I decided this experiment was over and I was going to start growing the long hair back again. Deep down I had always loved my long hair, but I needed some time away…if you love something let it go right? Right.
Now my hair is about halfway between the long hair I started with and the lob, which is around boob length I guess. But instead of describing how it lines up with various body parts, how about a photo? This is how long it is now.
At this point I’m a few months into the process of growing it out and here is what I have learned about the ins and outs of growing out a lob along the way.
That’s it, it’s really pretty simple. Hopefully you found some if my insight helpful if you’re currently growing out a lob. If you’re frustrated, don’t worry you got this! And if you need to, feel free to leave me a comment about how frustrated you are and I’ll do my best to give you a pep talk. I’ve been told I’m pretty good at those. #quinnspiration ?
