Beanie just walked in the room and said “Mom! You’re hair’s CRAZY!”. Funny. I had just taken it down from it’s perpetual “knot” on top of my head and shaken out the mess of nappy curls. It’s not a pretty thing. It was also apropos that he should comment, as I’m considering a challenge given me by Jen at Mythbuster Beauty.
Jen has challenged me to love my curls. I don’t. I hate them. They are messy, nappy, inconsistent, and I always feel like a wild woman when I let ’em go curly. Usually, my hair is in the Knot simply because I don’t know what else to do. Occasionally I’ll blow it out and it’s lovely- I get tons of compliments- but if there’s any humidity at all, it’s POOF city, and all that work is up in smoke. To anyone who doesn’t have curly hair, I’m speaking Greek, but there it is.
The picture above is a glamorous version of the Knot. (it is me) Also, of how my kids usually see me, but that’s another issue. Don’t get on my bad side.
So, Jen has given me a three-week challenge. She swears if I follow her rules, in three weeks I will love my hair, and my life will be transformed. Well, OK, maybe I made up the transformed part, but I can always hope. It’s time to end the three decade hate-affair with my hair.
