So I’d been growing my hair for a year now. From a 4-blade all over last October I’d managed to grow a shoulder length mass of thick wavy locks. I was trying for the Peter Sagan look, but I’ve had to admit defeat. I just don’t have the swag that man does!
Hats off to you gals (and guys) with long hair who manage to keep it under some sort of control during and after training. I just couldn’t do it. It got to the stage where it was getting in my eyes as I couldn’t get all of it into a pony tail. A sweaty, sticky birds nest was the result of any exercise and it was generally wreaking havoc when cycling.
Pre-work morning sessions were a pain as I’d need to wash it afterwards and with no time for it to dry properly. Blow dry? Not my locks, I’d be rocking a 70’s afro! Stuffing wet hair into a full face motorcycle helmet to ride to work? Ergh.
After a year of scissor avoidance, I’m back to a decent short back and sides low maintenance cut. I did save this little plait as a reminder of my long haired days. Maybe I’m just lazy, but short hair is SO much easier to manage!
