Thanks for all the encouraging comments on the hairstyle post I put up recently. I decided to go for it and had about 5 inches cut off my hair & tons of layering done. I love it! Most of the split ends are gone & it feels silky soft again. All I have to do to style it is wash, finger comb, and let dry. For a little extra fluffiness I can add a bit of hairspray or mousse. I think I'll keep it this way for awhile. Happy Happy!
