Yes…that is from the musical, Hair. Most of my posts have been pretty miserable and depressing lately, so instead, let’s talk about hair instead. But don’t worry, I’m sure I can make this post miserable and depressing, too (joking!).
To be frank, I need to cut my hair off. Right now, I have medium-length hair. I’ll even show a picture…this was before I got sick six months ago. I have so few pictures of myself, because I’m not a fan of the way I look. But..here we go:
Why do I need to cut my hair off, you ask? FIRST of all….thanks to my medications, my hair is falling out in clumps. And I mean CLUMPS. I may be dating myself here, but every time I get out of the shower, it looks like the Dee Snyder from Twisted Sister was just in the tub:
Soon, it’s going to be very obvious my hair is getting thin. Also, because of my extreme heat intolerance, blow-drying it kills me. My other option is to let it air dry, and while my hair isn’t THAT long, it literally takes hours for it to air dry…I have no idea why. These are all good reasons to get a nice, cute pixie cut. This is what I’d like:
I love Halle Berry’s hair! Cute, but a little funky and messy. How perfect. Here’s the problem…I obviously don’t have her facial structure, and I am CERTAINLY not her size. I HAVE had relatively short hair in the past, and that’s one of the reasons why I’m so nervous about this…..I didn’t really like it because I felt it made me look masculine. When I had short hair, from behind, someone once said, “Can I help you, sir?” and that traumatized me!
I felt like my short hair made me look like a fat, masculine, pin-head! I like the way my hair looked, but I didn’t think it looked right on my frame. But I just can not do long or even medium length hair any longer. That picture of me above is a rarity, because I never wear my hair down any more, because I can not stand it in my face or on my neck. At all.
I need to get rid of this hair, but I’m afraid I’ll look more like this than Halle Berry:
Decisions, decisions!! (I have to admit, the warthog above makes me laugh!)
