Well, I’ve finally crossed over into the twilight zone. I’ve been letting my hair grow for about 3 years with random trims. But it’s now reaching mid back (wet). When it dries, my curls shrink a bit. But I’m terrified someone will cut my braid off or cut a chunk of my hair, so I’m starting to hide it under my cardigan or under a scarf. I’ve had a couple nightmares too. It’s even stopped me from going out.
