New(ish) do

It’s not that I care so much about my hair, really. No, really. But lately it’s been a trainwreck, and something had to be done. Roots of course are always an issue – I started going gray at 13 and it’s been an uphill battle since then – but that has been the least of my worries.

Lately my hair has been alternating between looking like it’s trying to flee my head, and like it’s tired. Could use a nap, perhaps. Can hair be tired?

We tried Keratin but honestly, that’s a temporary fix and when it’s run its course, my hair needs a good chopping-off.

So we chopped, and instead of falling down my back just between my shoulder blades, my hair is barely reaching my shoulder.

And while we’re at it, let’s just stop fighting the battle I can’t win with this humidity, and let it curl. Necessitating a bit of (gasp!) layering. But just a bit. Because last time someone cut layers into my hair, I believe I cried in the chair at the result.

So. Hair shorter. And curlier. And looking just fine as I come out of the hairdresser.

We’ll see what I think when I have to do it myself.

Ah well, either way it will grow out. Or I’ll shave it off.

Time will tell.
