So the home hairdressing appointment went ahead as scheduled yesterday.
Robin turned up with a large bag full of goodies that I'd like to have in my bathroom cupboard and set up. Then she took a bit of the bulk out of my hair before she coloured it, then after we'd squashed in around my laundry tub with me leaning over it and her washing it, she cut it.
The first thing most hairdressers want to do when they see my hair is get amongst it with the razor and the thinning scissors. And they usually leave me feeling like I have a skull cap of hair with some rats tails clining to my neck and shoulders. But Robin kept herself well in control and when I washed it this morning I still had a LOT of hair.
And I did sit at the kitchen table and talk to her while the bleach did its thing. But as happens in a small town we discovered we both had kids in the same class, so we had plenty to bitch about.
And I did the fringe. And I like it. Even though it does feel like I've had an insect creeping around my forehead all day.
So I'm seeing her again in about 4 weeks. She tells me it'll take about 4 goes to get it up to blonde. Without turning it to jelly.
She wanted me to let it dry naturally but that takes about 3 days so after she left I gave it a blast with the dryer. And I have actually put the straightener through it, but it resisted.
So today I straightened it again. Which I'm sure was good for it.
