I’ve had virtually every hairstyle out there. It started when I was still in elementary school and my mother took me to a salon to get a Dorothy Hamill. From there, I’ve had bobs, boy-cuts, braids, a spiral perm, long, short and everything in between.
I’ve spent a few years growing out my hair, and I’m very happy with the length… basically. But the problem is, my hair texture has changed – and is still changing – drastically. I’ve gone from baby-fine hair and lots of it with just a tiny bit of wave to coarser hair with quite a bit of wave and a mind all its own.
Oh, I do have good hair days, where it is mostly smooth and shiny, but more often than not, I have days like yesterday where it looks decent when I leave the house, but over the course of the morning, it morphs into a mop and I look like some make-over show should be swooping in to save my wavy, shapeless wad of hair from itself.
I repeat, I don’t want to go short, but I am pondering bangs or something.
My old work computer isn’t playing well with Flickr, but there are plenty of photos of me around, and there are a couple of really good “as good as it gets in the humidity” photos here. (I’m in the yellow.)
I keep thinking it’ll be better in the cooler weather, and then I remember that this “new” hair is also drier, so it remains frizzy in the dry heat of winter too.
What’s on your mind today?
