Short Hair Care Routine


About a month ago, I did something pretty spontaneous — something I don’t do often — and decided to chop my hair. With the majority of my time spent chasing around a very busy baby, I quickly learned how difficult it was to care for my long hair and often ended up throwing it in a ponytail or messy bun to avoid getting my hair yanked out by little 8-month-old fingers.
