Hair Story by Samantha: I cut when I experience emotional trauma

I’m Indian and growing up in a predominantly black country, my hair was especially of notice. I was praised for it, it was my {identifier} Whenever I experience emotional trauma, my first instinct is to cut it. This mens break ups, failures, abuse. I cut it.
I cut it because when bad things happen I feel as though I lose myself, so I take away what people identify me by. I was raped. I want to save it all off.
