It’s been a long time. I know. Blame the woes and joys of being an entrepreneur  for my absence in the YouTube world. If you’ve noticed, the blog updates have been really slow as well. My bad!

While on this hiatus, I cut my hair! You can actually see my ends looking quite wispy in this video about 6 months ago and I had to get rid of it all!  To avoid trauma (lol), I did it over a period of 5 months. It was originally a 3 month plan, but I got a little scissor-happy. It’s a true sickness. Each month I trimmed at least an inch of my remaining thinning ends until there was no more.What happened, you ask? See below.
