I know I've told you before, but I'll just remind you again.
I have thick hair. Thick, coarse hair. And lots of it.
Now the thing about having thick hair, is that it seems to give hairdressers the impression that they can just cut sick at it with whatever sharp implement they have handy.
I remember sitting in the chair once and listening to my hairdresser discussing my unruly hair with her apprentice. Her advice was
Don't be afraid of the thinning scissors.
Here we go I thought, that'll be a good four months growing back to normal.
So last time I saw my hairdresser she suggested we razor my hair. Hard.
Ok I said.
Because my philosophy with hair has always been – it's only hair, it'll grow back. Well thats my philosophy when they're suggesting things to me. It's not usually my philosophy the next day when I'm looking in the mirror wondering why I thought it was a good idea to let edward scissorhands cut my hair.
Now I'm not really sure what happens when you razor hair. But a lot seems to end up on the floor. I left more hair on the floor than most people have on their head. When I bundled it up I couldn't wrap my thumb and forefinger around it. I was going to keep it in a bag to show my friend Jem. But then I thought that would be sick. And a bit strange. But I wish I did. It was impressive.
But now four weeks later I have to say I'm not a fan of the razor. Or at least not Hard razoring. I have all these funny frizzy bits sprouting about. And my hair feels too thin. I feel like an old lady with fairy floss hair.
So I've come to the conclusion that I'm never going to like my hair. I don't like it dark or blonde or thick or thin or short or long. I'm not sure what that means yet, I've only just acccepted the fact so I don't know where it leads.
Actaully my hairdresser will be here soon. For a colour, to cover the grey bits. And I'm thinking of doing a Christina Aguilera fringe. Have you seen it? It's about 1/2 an inch long. It looks hot. Well it does on her. On me it'll probably look like I let a four year old boy cut it while I slept.
