I have pretty much had short hair for all entire life. For some reason (I think it was an 80’s thing) my parents cut my hair short as a child I have never been able to grow mermaid length hair since. About 10cm past shoulder length is about as much as i’ve been able to achieve in my past 30 years on the planet. I also cut my hair in to a pixie style when Jordan was 2 years old and it’s taken another two (WHOLE) years to grow to shoulder length. I have longed for really long hair for years and have never been able to get it to the stage of being truly happy with it. It just grows far too slowly and heat styling definitely doesn’t help it.
