I would have sworn I used to have thick hair but no more. Today I read a blog post that made me laugh out loud. I want you to stop now and read Of tramp tats and haircuts on the Aging Gracefully My Ass blog.
I have to say her haircut experience ended much better than mine. I recently had a similar experience that did not end so well.
These days hair is a subject I avoid if at all possible. It's never a happy subject and it's getting less happy by the day. I have very straight limp hair but when I had more of it I could perm, curl, or tease it to lift it a bit. These days it's as worn out as I am and no longer takes a stand.
I went about six weeks ago for a haircut. I usually get one monthly. A young male, full of body piercings and tattoos, was my lucky draw for the day. Though he was nice enough it was obvious cutting this old woman's hair ranked just above cleaning toilets with him.
I went through my song and dance about the cowlicks in the crown, cautioning him not to cut that area too short as I did not want to look like Alfalfa. Too late I realized he was too young to know anything about Alfalfa. Perhaps he thought I was talking about weed.
Last week when I got my hair cut again it had been five weeks and the hair in the crown of my head was still not long enough to cut, "don't touch that hair" I said to the new person cutting my hair.
I did not think it was possible for me to get a bad haircut on this awful hair but it happened.
Have you noticed your hair thinning as you age?
