More than Splitting Hair(s)
Saturday, September 15, 2012
I've noticed among the ladies I follow that have lost significant amounts of weight (50, 100, 150 lbs or more) that their hair often lengthens and lightens as the weight comes off. This is not always the case, and I'm certainly not saying long hair is necessarily more attractive- everyone has preferences and can look awesome with differing do's. But the transition to long and blonde is something I see quite often... and I have a theory as to why this is so. Having healthy, long, color-treated hair takes patience, time. It often requires budgeting and consistent maintenance.
Weight loss is no different. I think as we take better care of ourselves we learn that we are worth the time it takes to look and FEEL a certain way. Flowing locks are just a symbol of the inner transformation. We begin to say, "I am beautiful, I am worth the time and energy it takes to look and feel this good."
Someday I hope to put the short auburn look behind me...
