Demi Lovato appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she talked about how cutting her hair helped her heal during her ongoing recovery from an eating disorder and addiction.

“I just feel so free. I feel more authentic to who I am. I also feel like I used to hide behind my hair.”

“I’ve talked a lot about my past being in recovery from an eating disorder, and I used to use my hair to hide behind. It would cover my body. So when I started doing all this work on myself, I thought, ‘What is something I’ve been holding onto my whole life that I need to let go of?’

“It was that and… yeah, I just feel more myself now.”
