New hair...

I got up early this morning, which turned out to be much too early, and I had to go beck to bed for just a little while before I went to the hairdresser. I wouldn't have made it otherwise, because I would have fallen asleep in the chair there while she cut my hair. 

I dozed in bed for an hour and a half and then got up and had a cup of coffee. That was enough to return me to the living and I got dressed as soon as it was possible. It only takes me five minutes to walk to the hairdresser, maybe less, and when I got there, I was attended to immediately. 

The woman who cut my hair has cut it often and she does not need me to tell her what she needs to do. She knows enough about my funny hair to know what to do with it. How on one side it always wants to stick out and how that needs to be thinned out extra well so it will lie down flat. 

She cut off an amazing amount of hair, because it had really grown a lot since I had been there last. It had only been about six weeks ago, but my hair grows fast. I saw myself emerging as she cut it. That's my favorite part: watching her cut my hair with the different scissors.

As she cut my hair and it dried up, it got lighter and by the time she was done I had very blond hair again. I don't know why that is, but it always happens. It had gotten a bit darker during the winter and it was a joy to see it brightened up. It matches my face and eyebrows better. 

I now have very easy to manage hair and it will be a breeze to take care of it. Washing it will be so easy and it will not be any effort to style it, because all I will have to do is rub it dry with a towel. I've got a spunky hairdo. I had picked the clothes to match my hair beforehand, so I looked good when it was done. 

I'm one of the few women I know who doesn't completely redo her hair when she's been to the hairdresser. Or maybe there are more of you who don't and the story that there are is just a myth. 

Tyke smelled my hair when I got home. He must have thought that it was just a bit of an unfamiliar scent. He laid down submissively and I scratched his belly. Gandhi just wanted a bowl of milk. She didn't care one way or the other. Cats are uninterested in those things.

I'm now waiting for the Exfactor to get here. I never know when he'll show up. I can start doing my chores in the meantime. I'm still a little bit tired and I think I'll have to take a nap this afternoon. At least my hair will be in place when I get up. 

Have a good day.

I rarely get a totally new look when I go to the hairdresser - at least not enough to shock anyone. But it does feel like it is totally different.

Any my cat loves to chew on freshly shampooed hair.

I got a new look twice this month already...cut my own hair.

I would love to have some time to relax and let a professional do it, but...

its good when you get a style you like.
I have a hairdressing friend come to my house now. She does it just the way I want it.
Rabbits wouldn't like it if I smelled different. They seem to base many things on smell.
Have a good evening.

Nuts in May

Glad you are pleased with your new haircut. Great that it has gone blond. My kids' hair is the same, going blong in the summer and darker in the winter.

When I have my hair cut I have loads of layers put in it and it goes nice and wavy. I can always tell when I need to get it done because the waves go out of shape.

Hi Bev, it's good for people with wavy hair to get their hair layered. It brings out all their natural curl of which I don't have any.You are lucky to have some. What color is your hair?
