I wish I could ‘raise’ my hair to be nice and obedient, to follow my directions, to listen to me.. But alas..haircuts and I have a funny relationship. I think I must have been cursed sometime.
The day I get a haircut, I feel like the most glamourous woman in the world. My hair cascades down(so what if it just about reaches me ears! – I still like using words like ‘cascading’ in connection to my hair;), just as it is meant to.. It is all shiny and glossy and well set. It swirls around when I swirl – and believe me, I do a lot of it the day I get a haircut It makes me look (in my mind, if not anybody else’s) like one of those glamourous women on TV The hairstylist assures me that it is perfectly manageable. All I need to do it run the straightener through it. or even without it – it should be just fine.
And then my luck changes.
Day 2 – A few locks of hair decide to defy all the drying and straightening. Not too bad, it just adds a little element of dishevel to the hair style.
Day3 – A few more follow the trend of defying all my efforts of taming them and following the original hairstyle.
Day4 -Hair in every possible direction! Gone are those swirly, cascading locks of hair. I hate my haircut!!! How on earth can this haircut be called ‘manageable’!!! Straightener goes into hibernation until the next haircut. Next time, I am having an easy to maintain haircut! No more fancy haircuts! And then start the laments – why can’t I have a haircut which stays perfect, why can’t I have cascading hair:( *sob sob*
I am so getting a manageable haircut – the moment this cut grows out!!! And so the cycle starts all over again:( and I will always wish I had the kind of hair that dreams are made up of and the patience to keep it that way..
Have any of you had this horrible hair-relationship?
