Here's a pic of the progress so far . . .
When I was coloring my hair, it seemed to grow so fast. After three weeks, I could see the roots. Now that I'm not coloring, it seems to be growing so slowly. This is after 9 1/2 weeks of no coloring.
So I decided to get it cut, just to try and speed things up a bit.
It's hard to get a decent selfie, but at least here you can see the roots. I've left the bangs long to keep some illusion of length for myself, but the sides and back are really short. In fact, all the color is off the lower back, at the neckline.
So the bangs could still take forever, but I think the back and sides will be all grown out by Thanksgiving.
I had about 2 1/2 to 3 inches cut off, which saves me almost six months of growing out time.
Some days I like it, some days I don't. At least I'll have lots of time to get used to it, at this rate!
