Update on pull free status
I just wanted to post an update and say that I am now one month pull free. :-) :-) :-) This hasn't happened for me for a while. I think I was ready for a pull-free period, and it came to me, and I accepted it. I've had a few moments here and there where I really thought of pulling (just one hair!), but luckily I thought it through and realized that it is just not worth it! I can never stop at just one hair, so not one hair can leave my head.
I am in the process of growing out my hair after a really horrid hair cut, so my hair looks pretty funky. I think if I lighten the roots, it would help a lot. The ends of my hair are dry and need a hot oil treatment. I still like to look through my hair to find the split ends and snap those off. I sometimes live for my evenings alone when I can sit in the lamplight and snap split ends with no distraction. I really get into the zone. I don't think this does a lot of damage, although I probably shouldn't do it. Right now though, I'm just happy to not be pulling. There isn't a whole lot of change in my bad spots, just that they are all filled in now. The hair is still slick and downy, so there is still a lot of growing to do.
I'm hoping that this pull free time will last a long long time. Maybe forever, even though this seems to much to hope for. I'm thinking of asking the folks at the 700 Club to pray for me. I would need a miracle to stay pull free forever. My longest stretch was nine months at the beginning of keeping this journal. I look at pictures of myself from then and my hair is just like, allllll over. It was beautiful. Full. Sticking out in all directions. I want that! It was messy, but it was NORMAL. All my hair was the same length.
Baby up. Gotta go. Until next time.
