My hair has been driving me nuts lately. Actually, more than lately – for at least a good year or two. In fact, just the other day it occurred to me that I cannot recall any point in time in my past that I actually loved my hair! I realized most of the time I thought my hair was “okay.”
Blonde. I was born blonde and was naturally blonde for many years. Then in my late teens/early 20′s, the blonde started fading to a “dishwater blond.” Ugly, nasty color. Time to turn into a bottle blonde, which I have been for the last half of my life.
It was strange – oh so very strange to see any other color than blond or dishwater blond on my head. After a while, I became used to it. I did like the color when I very first applied the red, but it quickly faded and turned dull. Back to the same ol’ problem… my hair is driving me nuts. Plus the style is too long and actually requires a few minutes of “fixing” in the morning. More time than I care for. In fact, I really don’t want to have to do anything to my hair.
So what can I do? Shave it!
I actually have shaved my head a few years back. Again, for the same reasons – it was driving me crazy and I was just tired of it. So, no big deal to shave it again. My boss just about had a cow, so I have bought several scarfs and I’m having fun decorating my fuzzy head.
I must say, though, it feel SO weird to rub my head. Soothing, actually, but very weird. I do LOVE getting up in the morning and not having to do a damn thing to my hair.
