We have entered mullet territory

Anyone who's every grown out a pixie will tell you that it is a long, slow and painful process. :P  You go through the short, cool and manageable phase (6 months for my ultra short pixie).  Then you slide into OMG I have a mullet territory, which is where I have finally arrived.

It's been 7 months since my last cut and the dreaded mullet has appeared.  I'm cheap.  Too cheap to go to a salon for two snips at the back of my head, so last evening, I took care of business myself.

Mullet land....
Neat and trimmed
Add a cute little braid to keep the bangs back and we have reached sustainability! :D  I read somewhere about the braid idea.....really like the way it adds that soft touch that's lacking mostly, with the short hair.  Plus I miss braiding!  Oh, I used to have hair that I could put two French braids in, one on each side......some day. :)

Plan is to keep the back trimmed up out of mullet-land while the rest catches up and then just let it grow!

The "almost one year" post

Close enough, right?  It's been almost one year since I last dyed my hair with the henna and 7 months since my uber short pixie cut that I got back in August of 2014.

Here's a collage from May of last year through this month showing the progress.

Day to day, it doesn't seem to be growing at all.  I guess it is though. :)  I'm just impatient.  I haven't regretted the decision to stop the dye for one second.  The pixie.....maybe once or twice. ;)

I'll be glad when I can just pull it back in a p-tail and forget about it.  I'm "that" into my hair.  Hehehe.

I'll do another update on March 15th, which is the true one year anniversary of my last dye job.  After that we're on year two!
