Should I cut my hair?

So after about 5 years of having waist length hair I am seriously considering cutting my natural hair.  I have 2 children and a busier lifestyle than I did when I first decided to grow my hair long.   Yes I keep it simple but caring for long natural hair still takes time. Overall I am starting not to like the shape of my hair and the length of time it takes to do long term styles like small twists.  I want to wear my hair loose and curly more and I’m trying to decide the best option.

Reasons to keep hair WL

  • Easy to do buns, ponytails, and quick updos
  • Super big twist outs and braid outs (I like big hair obviously)
  • More length/”hang time” when I wear braids or twists
  • It took me a great deal of time and effort to grow it

Reasons to cut my hair

  • Better shape of hair style when curly (see more pics of my hair journey here)
  • Less detangling/styling time
  • Fewer issues with knots and tangles
  • Easier to flat iron on the rare occasion I want to wear my hair straight

So what do you think should I cut it or leave it be and wet set my hair for a shorter look? Vote for the length you prefer by typing the number 1,2, 3 or 4 below or vote on my Facebook or Instagram.
