Dear Hair,

Dearest Hair,

We need to talk about this unhealthy relationship we have with you. Why is it so hard to cut you? Why do we have a harder time letting go of you than we do of going to the doctor or worse the dentist?

I think it stems from the fact that once you’re gone, for the majority of us non rich folk, you’re actually gone. It takes months and months to grow you back. Or maybe that’s just it. Because it takes so long and we take care of you constantly that we’ve grown attached to you, all of you. And you’re not like a piece of clothing we can just replace or wear when we feel like. We wear you every day, and we have to like you as you are.

So when it’s that fateful time to cut because you’ve become too much of a hassle, or because winter is coming and the last thing we want to deal with is staticky hair all over our faces. It’s just easier to deal with short hair. And in time you’ll grow back.

I’m sorry to have to do this, but it’s time to chop some of you off.

I will always love you,

Your human
