Because I started getting gray hair in my 30’s,
let’s just say I have spent
a great deal of time since
standing in Walgreen’s or HEB or Wal Mart staring at hair color models,
stopping people on the street and asking them who does their hair.
Some people go to Las Vegas.
I gamble with hair dressers and hair color.
I guess that means
I create my
OWN BAD HAIR LUCK.
Here is a recent timeline:
*About two months ago – went to one of my two mainstay hairdressers for haircut.
She outdid herself.
All is well.
*Went back recently for a trim and highlights-
Hair cut different and my entire head is blonde.
Tried to talk to my daughters about my hair.
The youngest actually implied that I talk about my hair too much…
*Asked a friend where she gets her hair done.
Went there and asked for lowlights-
(see? now I am coloring my hair backwards!)
All of my too blonde hair is now a grayish green.
*Couldn’t handle that.
Went to different hairdresser.
She colored my hair chocolate brown
and gave me chunky highlights.
You know how I feel about the word chunky.
She also gave me a short hair cut that I am supposed to blow dry
‘wildly with my fingers to create wispies…’
I grew up rolling my hair on orange juice cans, after using beer as a setting lotion and then sitting under a bonnet hair dryer for over an hour.
What is your color story?
Can anyone relate to this?
