I have legitimate bangs. Like the rest of my hair is long but among my layers I have a relatively short "layer" in front that I wear as a bang. I go back in forth in my head, and sometimes to innocent bystanders, about how I may let it grow out. I may let my hair grow this time for real. I may not cut my bang back...
But then... I cut my bang back. About a month ago now. I said I wasn't cutting it then one random day, it was there, and too long, and welllll- I cut it. And I love it still. I am re-committed to it to tell the truth. No matter how my hair is looking I can refresh that front section in minutes and have new hair. It's liberating and saves me on a bad hair day. It gives me a different look to play with, concerning makeup and earrings. And how about this... It makes my bead head not so bad lol. I can leave it out and fix it easily so I have a cheat.
Last week when I did that twist out I really didn't want to wash my hair again before the week was up. So it slowly went up into a high bun.
So the next morning I let it get a little wet in the shower, parted my bangs out and rinsed just that part of my hair out. I re-shingled it with the power gel since it's still sitting on my dresser. I used castor oil and layered it in. I made a low bun with the too-through twistout to reduce stress on my nape.
But I definitely appreciate my bangs. Just wanted to share. Don't be afraid to cut. A strategic snip or two can make a head-full of hair a lot easier to handle.
