I have waist-length hair and trichotillomania. I've always wanted to shave my head, but put it off because I'm kind of afraid to draw that much attention to myself, and also wanted to see how long my hair could get. Plus, if it looked really bad, I wouldn't want to have to go to school every day while it grew out. So, I decided to wait until I graduate highschool (this june) until I take the buzzer to my head.|
Buuut recently my symptoms have been getting worse and it's tempting to give myself a drastic hair cut so that I won't pull my hair out. Even though I still want to see how much longer I can grow my hair, and everyone I voice this too says "Nooo, don't cut your hair!"
So basically, should I
*keep growing my hair and try and cope with triggers etc. in another way, and keep waiting until grad to cut it
*cut my hair short now and shave it later
* or shave it now and devil take the hindmost?
Or do I have some other option? I'm not afraid of being ~super traumatized or anything when I cut it, I'm not crazy attached to my hair.
