Good Hair Day

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

If you’ve bumped into me lately (sometime in the last 8 years) you can attest to the fact that my hair looks awful. Somehow, in the grand scheme of Mother Nature’s blessing…I inherited moody hair. Yea, like hormonal crazy straw blek!

Everyday is a bad hair day. I loathe it!

By the way, have you ever took a gander at either of my daughters? They have amazing hair! They are pretty much known by their signature curly long locks! Both of them stick out like a sore thumb no matter where we go. People stop them and comment on their beautiful hair.

Yea, they’re my biological children. I promise!

Recently, I’ve been doing a little “grow out”. I haven’t had a haircut in months. I’m determined to let it grow. So far–so good! It’s getting long and I really like it.

The problem? It won’t style!

I shampoo, blowdry, hotroll, and then I even spruce up with a flat iron. All that results in…..frizzy or flat gack! I look as if I rode with my head out the window. Just crazy! Did you happen to notice my hair in my beach pictures? Total frizzball, the entire trip. 🙁

Last week I bought a new HAIR DEVICE!! I can’t tell you how much I’ve spent trying to get my hair to do something. I purchased a new large barrel curling iron. I blew spent $26 on it (simply as an experiment)!


Because for today…..I just received the sweetest compliment! “Mrs. Galloway, Your hair is so pretty!”.


It appears to be a helmet…

Ok, remember my mantra about getting my hair done last week?  Well, I did it.  I went to my favorite salon in the woods to see Sheila.  She knows my hair (and that’s a sad relationship if I ever knew one) because…I don’t have “good” hair.  It’s been hormonal and unruly my entire life….so I can’t blame it on the perimenopausal state of my being any longer!  My hair is it’s own worse enemy!  Never are there any comments such as…..”Oh wow, your hair is awesome!”.  That’s just not compliments that I usually hear.  I’m ok with it.  Really.  I can take it.  I’ve lived with this hair a loooong time. 

I just go with it.  I mean, what else can I do?  It’s just hair, dangit!  I’m not that shallow!  🙂  I have my priorities in order…….sleep, eat well, rest, blog, laundry….look half-way good and work.  See?  I’m balanced!

So, the haircut goes well.  I show her a picture of the magic I believe she can perform.  She snips, clips and buzzes.  I look at the result….not quite the exact style.  She clips some more and sprays it in place.  Off I go….to the color store.  I should’ve just went home!

Once inside Sally’s…..I had a complete brain meltdown.  I studied and searched the different choices.  But there was no memory of the color that I used last time.  I picked up two that I thought were the right one.  It could’ve been either one.  I just couldn’t remember.  So, I just picked.

Yea…..I have BLACK hair now.  I mean……really black.  And when I style it….it looks like I’m wearing a helmet!  Not a goodlooking helmet…..something sturdy and withstanding!  I would post a picture but I don’t have my camera handy.  Maybe soon.  Cause I’ll pretty much be like this for a while.

It’s a good thing….I don’t find my self-worth in places such as my hair.  I’d be in trouble.
