If you know me and my child, you also know that she's never really had a haircut. She's 3 by the way. (I trimmed it once to even out some weird growing baby hair) but she has REALLY long hair (I think I'm rebelling against the Dorothy Hamill haircut my mom made me get in the 70's.)
She has nice hair, it's very long and wavy now. Recently it developed a huge knot in the back that I have been struggling with. I've tried everything-Lots of conditioner. Johnson's No More Tangles and lots of brushing. Her hair is also too long and she's starting to resemble an Appalachian child who should be wearing a flour sack.
I know she needs a haircut and I have been dragging my feet. I was also all embarrassed about the knot. Besides, I was thinking this evening, I don't really want a different style for her it's pretty as is. I just want it shorter. So after her bath tonight I sat her down and cut her hair. I took off about 3 inches so it is still long- it just looks much neater. It was really easy actually. She had fun playing beauty shop. And it was completely FREE.
