When I sat in the chair, I just couldn't do it. Instead, I had a good 6 inches cut off the bottom line, and lots of thinning was done...lots, and lots....trust me....there is a lot of hair gone now. It's amazing how much lighter my head feels after that shearing. :oP
I'm wearing my hair straight, instead of curly. I dry it straight, then use a flat iron. It takes a little time, but, it's not so bad, since there isn't much hair there anymore.
I like it..it's easy. It's different. Different is good.
