Why? Because your hair shrinks, stretches, and just generally has a pissing contest with you every other day of the week. And you can guess who wins. It ain't the person attached to the hair!!!
I am at the end of my second month and I learned this the really hard way. My forelock on one side of my head I naturally keep longer than the other side because the longer side I like to tuck behind my ear and let the other side go free. So I noticed that the side I was tucking behind my ear, that whole side of my head was not knotting up at the same rate as the other side of my head! Furious, I trimmed about two inches off that forelock and for the next few days I tucked the forelock on the OTHER side of my head behind my ear and let the other side hang free. By day three I was horrified at what I discovered: my hair has a mind of its own!
Oh it started knotting up alright- the forelock split, created two new separate locks and the one that is behind it is significantly shorter than the one in front!! I look like a dipshit three year old who hacked at their hair with child's safety scissors! ROFL
Ok, so live and learn, folks. Preferably learn from other people's mistakes.
Don't touch your hair with scissors-- You cut any length off and you're going to end up regretting it!!!
