To Cut or Not To Cut…. That is the question!

26 Aug

So my latest dilemma in planning my trip is the length of my hair. Yes I know to some this might seem trivial but to those of us who have long hair and have had short hair there are pro’s and con’s to both lengths.

So here is the list, all opinions are welcome:

Long hair – or hair long enough to put in pony tail or braids

1- You are able to pull it up into a pony tail
2- You can where braids
3- You can pull it completely off your face and neck
4- If you go out you can have an evening look
5- You can make dreadlocks

1- You shed
2- It takes more time to brush
3- It takes more time and soap to wash
4- You have the threat of dreads
5- Sometimes its annoying to have a mane in hot weather
6- More likely the monkeys at the refuge can grab a handful
7- Being on the shorter side long hair is not always the right look for me

Short hair – or hair that is too short to pull off your face

1- For me the cute factor is rather flattering
2- I wear a lot of head bands so can pull the hair away from my face
3- Less likely to dread
4- Easier to wash and uses less soap
5- Is off your neck and you have no need of hair ties
6- You shed less

1- Often have stray strands that fall in your face
2- Wearing a headband can be too hot
3- You can’t throw it in a pony tail or braids

Decisions, decisions! But short of going bald and wearing a wigs there is really no way to have the best of both worlds. While discussing this important topic at work one of the vets did put in his two cents. He simply said, while rubbing his bald head, “when I went to work in Sumatra I had a pony tail!” So I guess that would be the other possibility, go there with long hair and hack it all off if needed.

What do you all think?
