Welcome to most women's, and my very own, hair nightmare.
Recently we have been seeing that there has been a trend amongst women's hairstyles. It's elegant, it's face framing, it's the empowering, and equally dreaded, pixie cut.
But what if you went for the big chop and decided it's not for you? Or maybe you just feel like a change and want to go long again?
This is where our problem lies. The painstaking wait we as short haired women must go through.
That's why I'm here to help you. Here is your pain-free guide to growing out your pixie cut.
I know how you feel; I'm also in the process of growing my hair out from a super short pixie cut. And I can tell you it doesn't have to be an unpleasant process. You can have fun with your hair on the way.
Start with step number one: Have a hair game plan
Although you may think you want to avoid your hairdresser when growing your hair, they will be your best friends when growing out a pixie cut.
Talk to your hairdresser about your ideal hair length and they can help you work out the stages to get there. This will give you confidence in knowing you'll never have the mullet effect!
Number Two: Distract with colour
Talk to you stylist about adding a little colour into your life. This will give a distraction to yourself and others while you're waiting for your hair to grow.
Number Three: Accessorize
My favourite way to help my hair out while it grows is using accessories! During this period I've found bobby pins and headbands to be my best friends. They help cause distraction and keep the hair out of your face.
Number Four: Eat well
There is one way to make your hair grow faster and that's by speeding up your metabolism. Exercise and a balanced diet that's high in protein, iron and zinc will have a positive effect on your hair growth cycle.
Lastly but most importantly: Be Patient
It may be hard to wait, but your hair grows approximately one inch per month. So keep cool, and hair fun watching your hair grow back healthy and happy.
I hope my tips have helped you realize that growing out your pixie cut isn't that terrible. There are many things you can do to grow your hair out gracefully.
