Honestly, I’ve got nothing, just some random little tidbits that are floating around in my brain.
That’s what happens when you are up at 12:30 in the morning still trying to multi-task through several things on the never-ending “to do” list.
The thing that is occupying the most space in my brain at the moment is what to do with my hair??
The issue with my hair is two-fold. I am enjoying the length. However, it tends to have a good bit of frizz due to some over-zealous coloring on my part and also because I have been in denial for years that my hair has a natural wave to it. Both contribute to the lov-erly frizz halo that tries to pretend it is my crowning glory.
The other troublesome issue with my hair is the gray. I started noticing grays in my early twenties. By the end of that decade, I had a full-blown gray streak at the left front of my hair. This could be quite lovely. I’ve seen it work nicely on others. In fact, this month’s Cooking Light has an article with photos of a woman whose hair is stylish and fab in spite… no, BECAUSE of her streak.
Mine is not.
I’ve tried highlighting it to blend in with the gray. It worked for awhile. But it is a bit high maintenance. Something this mama to four doesn’t have time or money for, since we have other things we need like, say, food…
On top of it, my grays must have super powers because they resist hair color like it has some super defense shield up. I actually went to a fancy-shmancy hair place several years ago, and she tried several colors for grays on my hair. They didn’t take. And what does take, fades within a week and turns a nice shade of brass.
Which, last time I checked, brassy hair is still not considered a hot look.
Unfortunately, the hair place that I go is of no assistance. While the ladies are all very sweet and do a nice job of trimming my hair, there is a reason they are working at LeCheapHairCutPlace and not at some top-notch hair place downtown.
Y’all probably have more ideas and suggestions than I’d get from them. So bring it on. This mama needs some hair help.
Maybe someone out there can help me and can whisk me off for a much needed makeover?!!
