I'm about a week away from making a GIANT decision!  I want to chop my hair off. I've BEEEEEN wanting to do it forever, but for some reason, all of a sudden, I have this urge to do it now!

I think I just care less about the 'what if it doesn't look good' part. 

I know it will grow back and I have always thought about how amazing my hair would look if I just chopped it off and let the new, healthier stuff grow in.

The only thing holding me back is that I want to be sure a short cut will be LESS work.  I don't mind styling it every morning.  I just want to be sure it won't take me forever to do it.



-Less time washing my hair

-Less time blow drying and styling

-A different look


 But I'm afraid it will look like this instead:


-Could make me look older

-Could make me look heavier


Does anyone have any advice about chopping their hair? Did you love it or hate it?  Any words of wisdom?

I have wavy, super thick hair...not sure if that will be a good or bad thing.
