    Serious HELP! Addicted to cutting off ugly Hairstrands
    Bugzy2013 posted:
    I am going INSANE!! whenever I get bored, I start searching through my hair looking at how UGLY and unruly it has become.. Whenever I find a wavy-curly-unruly-rough-bent hairstrand, I immediately run for the scissors to cut it off!

    so my question is
    Should I continue to cut them off so they grow "Normal"?
    Should I leave them alone?

    If i continue to cut them off will my overall appearance of hair look messy?
    If I leave them alone, will they go back to "Normal"?

    PLEASE HELP! i feel like i shaving off tons of hair-ends
