Do you like your hair? I mean in general, the color, texture, thickness, curliness or straightness, do you like it? Most people don’t like their hair.
When I was a teenager I hated my hair. The color was great, a dark auburn, but it was curly. There was no way for me to have the fashion of the day, long and straight with bangs. I tried everything. Big big big rollers that made it nearly impossible to sleep. Ironing, which was dangerous to do yourself in the day before the nifty irons we have now. I used a regular ole iron that I used to iron my clothes, not very comfortable or safe. I also used straightening solutions that smelled horrible and did make my hair straight for a day or two then turned it to dry frizz.
Then in my twenties big hair was in. With fine curly hair this too was a problem. But I discovered “wiglets”; small hair pieces, that I styled in tumble curls. Voila! Big hair!
In the next hair incarnation I would blow it dry and use a curling iron to smooth it out. The style was fine but now the dreaded grey was an issue. So then color was applied every few weeks. What a bother.
Nowadays, I go for the natural look. Grey and curly. As long as it is short it looks pretty good. Of course, I seem to have a hard time getting to the hairdresser, I just don’t like going. Which is strange since I was a hairdresser for years in another life. But that is a story for some other time.
Today I think I am just rambling on about hair because I need a haircut and I am trying to talk myself into going to get it done.
And I am curious about how people feel about their hair.
