For years in lowland I had short hair because with the wind, having short hair is more practical. Then I started let my hair grow long enough that when I cut it short, I could donate my hair to Locks of Love, a charity giving out natural hair wig to kids with alopecia and cancer. Usually it takes at least 18 months growing my hair before I could donate them. This year, it's my third time donating.

Currently my hair is just above my shoulders' length. I want to cut it even shorter next month after my performance at GKJ.

Most (women) said I look better and fresher with my current hair. My boss just asked, 'what happened?' Both of my ojek drivers complained why I cut my beautiful long hair. It's funny seeing their reaction as I didnt expect they say anything about it. Some guys said it's better short, but the number of guys preferring the long hair is much larger than the women who prefer my hair long. Why is that?

Answer: because they still are just over-romantic sexual adolescents :).

Strictly personal speaking I also love long hair because it's beautiful and girlie. But as I'm not into teenagers but into women, I've to confess that short hair to me is beautiful as well as ( much more) sexy.

It wasn't just at random that I fell in love and lust with my wife; she had and has her hair cut short) :).

Frankly speaking I prefer long hair not just because I think they look beautiful, but I love to rub/stroke it.

uhmm.. i also had a lot of mixed reactions when i had my hair cut, or dyed, or curled... while it is fun to see their different reactions, just try not to let any of them put you down. it is YOUR hair and you have every right to do whatever with it, including balding your head. :) my family, for example, wouldn't hesitate to express their dislike of my long hair and would try to make me cut it short. but boyfriend prefers that i keep it the way it is (because change is so scary for some people). at the end of the day, we can't make everybody happy. so it's really a matter of making ourselves happy.
