I got hair extensions, like the weave in kind that African Americans get. My short hair is now down past my shoulder blades. My husband told me he couldn't believe I did such a spontaneous thing. I have not done anything this drastic in many, many years. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. I have a huge appreciation of what weaves entail and what women who have them go through. I'm just not sure how long I will be able to keep it in. My goal was to do it as long as possible to give my hair time to grow, but I don't know if I handle it.
