Most of the time I have medium to long hair. Most of the time, I love it to death too but, every few years I get this completely ludicrous idea to hack it all off, donate it and have something shorter. Last year I went even crazier. You see, last October I got picked to be a part of a FDA study and got to have laser eye surgery for it. I had worn glasses since I was four years old and was darn near blind and due to extremely dry eyes I could not comfortably wear contacts. This was going to be my first time to truly see and wear cute sunglasses that I could get at any old store. So I had the surgery and at this point my hair was more than half way down my back. I loved it but had gotten into a rut of wearing it in ponytails. After my one month followup to my eye surgery I went out to dinner with my husband (who loves long hair) and announced to him that I was going to cut off my hair. Not just cut it off though. Oh no, that would have been to simple in my need for a complete makeover to go with my new eyes. I decided that what I wanted was a very short pixie haircut.

Me before my laser eye surgery and my brilliant idea to cut off all of my hair.

The next day I had an appointment and went, pictures in hand of Ginnifer Goodwin when she had her really, really short pixie. The girl did not want to cut my hair and I could tell. She must have asked me at least 20 times if I was sure I wanted to do this. I assured her that I have had short hair at different points in my life. She finally began cutting and when it was finished I hated it! It was not at all what I had asked for and not nearly as close to as short as I wanted. I paid, tipped her and went home and cried to my husband. He, being the good sort he can be at times tried to convince me that it did not look that bad. Bless his little heart but it was awful! So what did I do? I went the next day to one of those little cheap haircut places in the strip malls and asked the girl I got to fix it. I went to pull out my pictures and she said don’t worry I know what you want. I left it in her hands and when she was done it was cute. I loved it!

Hack! The hair is all gone!

So now I had this really, really short hair and after a month I missed my long hair but was not looking forward to growing it out. So I kept it short and in March of this year I decided it was time to grow it out. I waited for it to grow, and waited some more, and some more, and some more and finally it grew… in the back! Can we say mullet? Now it’s the end of the year and it is finally growing but it has taken forever and some extra help.

Headbands for the win?

Why oh why won’t this grow out already? This is all I’ve gotten since March 2013.

While at BlogHer at the end of July I spoke with the people at Viviscal. What is Viviscal you ask? Viviscal is the #1 hair growth supplement in the U.S. and they have an entire hair growth system to help you get tresses that are thick, healthy and shiny. They even have a special line just for men. Their products work so well and are so popular that celebrities like Miranda Lambert, Reese Witherspoon, Rob Kardashian and Miley Cyrus (who is also growing out a pixie) use it. The key ingredient is their proprietary AminoMar marine complex and it has been proven to double follicular growth.

So how do I know Viviscal works? Well, they were kind enough to give me some of the supplements to try. So how did they work for me? The sides of my hair are finally growing in nicely! Yes, the mullet is on its way out and a bob is on the horizon for me. This has really helped me to get to a point where I can do more than wear a headband to try to disguise the mullet. I am now able to wear it as is and it doesn’t look bad anymore. So what does my hair look like currently, since using Viviscal?

See, it’s finally almost chin length!

 It’s finally growing on the sides and I have noticed that I am seeing less hair come out too. So I would definitely recommend this to anyone trying to grow out their hair. The whole system would make an excellent holiday gift to any man or woman not happy with their hair currently.

    You are much braver than I. The most that I will do is cut my hair so that I have bangs.

    You have pretty hair. 🙂

    I think you wore the Pixie very well, it was adorable on you. I like the short bob and the long hair, too! A few months ago, I decided to get a Pixie, too. I’m in the process of growing it out but I’m finding that my hair is so much finer now that I’m in my 40s. I need to try Viviscal.

      My hair used to grow like crazy and was insanely thick when I was younger. This time it just did not want to grow on the sides or front and it was breaking so easily.
