Hats off to all those swimmers and divers who can manage long hair. I’m not one of them. One, I don’t have the patience. Two, I’m in the pool way too much, weakening my hair. And three, I don’t know how the hell you take off your dry suit anyway without ripping out half your hair — especially when it’s as fine as mine is!

For these very reasons, I came to the scuba-oriented decision that it was time for the hair to go bye bye.

And you know what? Everything IS easier. Swimming laps: no cap needed, and when I do use a cap, I don’t rip out half my hair. Helping out for DM training: no tying and retying hair and the mask doesn’t rip it. Dry suit diving: bloody bliss.

So here’s to the scuba version of #ShortHairDontCare
