Stay strong! When I finally got a haircut after my lengthy knee fracture/surgery recovery I got my naturally curly hair cut really short and regretted it for the over two years it took to completely grow back out.It is finally totally over and done with! Resist the urge to do anything drastic unless you are super sure. I have told my hubby to physically restrain me if I ever mention cutting my hair short again and within the last couple of months had a nightmare that I cut my hair! That was one scary dream!Hope whatever you decide to do you love it!
