I had noticed that my hair had become a bit knotty so I decided to give it a thorough combing. Now I have to say that I'm not wildly keen about looking after my hair. I love my curls and think it's fabulous to have such thick hair - but it gets so terribly knotted, can take a good 40 minutes to wash and even longer to dry, and then it ends up in one monumental afro boof! It all seems a bit 'oh the drama' so I don't spend much time bothering with maintenance. Until now...
Soon into the combing I realised that I had a bit of a problem. The knots were extremely painful to get out and it didn't take me long to discover the awful truth - I had dreadlocks! Yep, great big matted, knotted clumps of hair. I begged Mr C to help me. He was reluctant to get involved in something that would hurt me but seeing as I was already hurting myself I didn't really care. It took an hour or so of careful combing (and not so careful pulling and tugging) to get the worst of it out. By that stage I looked like Diana Ross in one of her enormous wigs. I'm pretty sure this isn't a 1940s style!
So it turns out that I am not responsible enough to own long hair. I've made an appointment to have it cut and was quite excited about the thought of having more easy-care locks. Except now I'm getting a bit worried and frightfully attached to my hair. I'm scared! The big question is should I maintain my Victory Rolls or get it cut even shorter??? What do you think?
My new hair cut?
It's always a bit of a gamble with my hairdresser - never sure exactly how much she follows my instructions! And I'm never entirely sure how the curls are going to behave. Still, it will be nice to have a bit of a makeover, particularly to get my hair dyed and no longer have depressingly grey locks peeking through. I am so vain.
