Tomorrow's Forecast: bad hair

Don't you hate it when you get to the end of a good hair day? Because you know a bad hair day is sure to follow.

Maybe it's not the same for you, but good hair days never come consecutively for me. I can have days in a row of decent hair, hair I don't hate, nondescript passable hair. But actual good hair is always a fluke. It's that perfect accident of a great part, the right amount of natural air-drying before I blow dry, the length of time I blow dry it before I get impatient and flip my head upside down to speed up the process, and the perfect ratio of hair products. Today it all came together so well that even as the day winds down, it still looks good. I even got coffee on my hair got earlier (don't ask) and had to rinse some ends. Didn't matter. Still looked good.

Tomorrow, I'll try to reproduce this hair, but it won't work. The part will be all wrong. I'll wait too long then over-blow dry it. I'll put in too much of this product and not enough of that one. I'll get frustrated. I'll brush it too much. Then I'll end up putting it in a ponytail.

I get good face days. where I like how my face looks and the next it just looks odd and squished. But I have had days where I re washed my hair because it was annoying me so much.

Also I had caramel on my hair the other day. I would have preferred coffee. hah

Yep, I've gotten so pissed at my hair before that I leaned over the tub, turned on the water and rinsed my head so I could just start over. LOL. The really bad days are bad hair and bad face. Horrors!

I've always found fixing my hair to be somewhat traumatic. I've given up and always just put it in a ponytail now.

I've had extended periods of time where the ponytail was my main "hair style" for that very reason.

Oh yikes. I'll take coffee-soaked hair any day over petrol-soaked hair.

I'm all too familiar with having hedgey bits in my hair... Whenever I trim the hedges, I find little grassy, leafy, twiggy bits not just in my hair, but stuck to my arms and face, down my shirt and even inside my bra afterwards.

*giggles* Why you think I dunked her in the bath as soon as she came home?! ;-)

I think I'm going to grow my hair a bit. Kinda sick of short and non-descript. And then (about three seconds after tomorrow's trip to the hairdressers) I will be utterly sick of it and want it all clipping off again. My life is one long bad hair day. I'm not going to have it coloured again though. I think I'll just go grey slightly prematurely but gracefully...

Here, have an icon of Sarah having a lovely hair day to cheer you up ;-)

Petrol Hair Day...
I took the woman's car to fill the tank last night, and the automatic shut-off didn't. I splashed about a deciliter of 'petrol' down the side of the car, pants, shoes.

Those are the days I'm *really* glad I never took up smoking.

My kayaking companion married a woman with a beautiful mane of long, apparently straight black hair. During one visit she remarked enviously how awesome it would be to have "Hair-to-Go" like the menz. About six months later she showed up with a butch cut, because she couldn't be bothered to take care of the hair anymore.

Not that I'm recommending the butch cut...

Re: Hair-to-go
I have been tempted on many a day hair day to shave my head!!!
