Zofia has a perpetual “rats nest” and hates having her hair brushed. Awhile ago, I mentioned that if she cut it short, it would be a lot easier to brush out, but she would have none of that. Then, in the past couple weeks, she’s started telling me that, maybe, she’d like to cut off “a little”… to her shoulders. So, despite seeming somewhat distrustful that I would cut off too much, she decided she wanted to liberate herself from the tangles (a little) and we chopped off about five inches. Thankfully, she is happy with the results.
