If you're like me, you love changing your hair on a monthly basis. I love wearing wigs and box braids. I love cutting and dying my hair as well.
It's a way of expressing one's self and provides creativity in a fun way. When changing your hair often is a way of expressing yourself, it can be pretty difficult when others judge you for it, especially if it's your significant other.
Here are some things that have been said to me that you shouldn't say to your girlfriend or loved one if she decides to cut her hair.
1. "I liked it better when it was longer."Giphy
No. Just, no. There is no way to magically grow it back in one second so don't try to make her regret it.
2. "You kind of look like a guy."Giphy
REALLY? If your girlfriend identifies as a girl, chances are she wouldn't like being called a boy. Don't do this, please.
3. "Why don't you wear a wig or extensions?"
I love wearing wigs but if you tell me to cover up a haircut that I paid for because you don't like it, then I probably will have to go back to being single.
4. "How long do you think it'll take to grow back?"Giphy
Probably longer than you're relationship will last if you keep asking dumb questions.
5. "Don't cut it again."Giphy
Having a girlfriend doesn't mean having a piece of property so don't even attempt to tell her what to do. It's the same with loved ones as well.
6. "You must be insecure with yourself."
This hurts coming from anyone. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be in a bad place in your life to want to randomly cut your hair down short.
7. "You look gay."Giphy
It's 2018 people. Girls can have short hair, guys can have long hair, and "gay" IS NOT an insult.
8. "I don't like short hair on a girl."Giphy
Everyone is allowed to have a preference but if you've already made her your girlfriend and you care more about her hair than her, then you shouldn't be dating her.
9. "If you don't stay consistent, people will think you don't know yourself."
All in all, it IS just hair. It will grow back. Why can't I change my hair often and also know exactly who I am?
