Well, it's done. Thanks to all of you who indulged me by voting. Just so y'all don't think I'm incapable of making up my mind, I was going to do something about the hair anyway & thought it would be a hoot to do the poll. Anyway, on to the results...
I couldn't believe how much lighter my head felt!
I'd forgotten that my hair springs up & is kinda wavy when all the weight is cut off. There's still a little perm left, but not much. Now I get to turn heads at work & church. (Insert evil laugh here.)
