I am currently growing my hair (a) because I am too lazy/cheap to get it cut and (b) to see how long it will grow (my mom’s hair reached her ankles at one point, so the genes are there).
However, once it reaches your waist, the length changes very, very slowly. On one hand, the long hair is nice, because it fits with my SCA persona quite well. I don’t need extra hairpieces, and I don’t have that bangs problem I did before, which is that I needed to pin them back when wearing garb, and could never slick them down enough to satisfy my own vanity (alas, DEP gel, once a staple in my hair arsenal, is not easy to find so no shell-head for me unless somebody’s got an alternate solution).
On the other hand, it takes two days to dry, a lot of hair dye (I want to switch to indigo, but it would cost ~$75 each time, just for the indigo, in order to dye the whole length), gets tangled around my neck when I sleep, and is nearly long enough to brush the toilet seat when I go to the bathroom (I know! gross!). Obviously it is decision time.
So, Hive Mind, what should I do?
Note: any of these options will be an at-home affair, because while I am willing to be un-lazy, I am still cheap.
