Should Terry Cut His Hair? [Poll]

Terry in 2009 and Now.

Three and a half years ago I started growing my hair on a bet. My wife wagered that I couldn’t go a month without cutting it. She was right. I lost that bet. Double-or-nothing and now my hair is over ten inches in length.

So… Should I cut it?

Human hair grows an average of six inches a year. That means my hair should be easily between eighteen and twenty inches by now. That it’s right at ten inches means my hair grows very slowly.

I’ve had short hair for most of my life. There was a mullet incident in junior high, and it was about chin length for a while in college, but for the most part I’ve kept it really short and been religious about cutting it.

Long hair has been a big change for me. I had to learn how to maintain it which lead to some uncomfortable questions to my female coworkers about haircare products. And women invariably laughed at me when I asked how they got their hair so smooth, what product they use, or how they keep it out of their eyes. Especially my wife.

I’m considering cutting it.

I do get a lot of compliments on it, and I honestly I do like it. My mom hates it, my sister calls me a “dirty hippie,” but my wife loves it. She says this is how I “should look.”

I’ve learned that if I do cut my hair I can donate the ponytail to Locks of Love, an organization that helps disadvantaged children suffering from medical hair loss.

What do you think? Should I cut my hair or keep it long?

*Note: the outcome of this poll will not automatically put scissors in my hands, but help me make a better decision. You guys are usually right.
