I hate my hair, its straight, thin and takes FOREVER to grow. Its been red, egg plant purple, blue and blond, straight, permed and just spiked out. I get to a point where I am ready to shave it off and go all GI Jane style! The only thing that has kept me from actually doing it is I am afraid my head is all bumpy or lop sided.
A few weeks ago I was talked into putting extensions in by one of my fabulous customers. The process takes about four hours so I set up child care just to find out that she canceled last minute on me. This happened twice, so i figured external forces were at play and should just take the hint.
So I have been putting gunk and blow drying and curling my hair for the last few weeks but its getting old. I have four kids, that means no time to be messing with my hair. You are lucky if I get to shower!
Discussing my hair dilemmas with my boss, she feels strongly that we are born with the hair that best suits us. She has convinced me to give my hair one week to figure out what it wants to do naturally. The plan is for one week, I am going to shower, shampoo, condition, comb it and see what happens. I am calling it the Boss Hair Challenge, and guess what you get to witness the massacre here!
So that's it, I am going cold turkey starting tomorrow. Here is one last look at my "done" hair!
