My hair started as a security blanket. It’s long and straight, dark brown and it used to be my curtain from the world. When I was 16 I moved in the States for school and I decided it was time to break the shield I had. I started slowly trimming one side and then shaving it off. I haven’t had long hair in about 5 years. It’s been dyed many colours and has become a feature and not something I hide behind. It’s been a long journey but it has aided me in loving myself.
