I Confess, I Hate My Hair – Sometimes

hatehairI’ve been told I have beautiful hair on many occasions.  It’s long.  Super long.  Right-above-my-butt-cheeks long.  It’s blonde.  Naturally curly; something that I’ve been told every girl dreams of having.   While all those things may very well be true, I have to say, I hate my hair – most of the time.

It can be a pain in the derriere to fix in the early morning hours before work.  It tangles.  Frequently.  To the point that there is a great deal of pain to get the brush through my personal rat’s nest.  I must pull all of it over one shoulder to brush the full length of it because, let’s face it, my arms do not bend in such a fashion.

I know what you’re thinking – how is any of this important?  In the grand scheme, it probably doesn’t have much weight, but I will say, that just yesterday, I was so pissed at my hair that if I had had a pair of scissors handy, I would be sporting a butch hair cut today.  Logically, I know that I could improve my feelings for my hair if I just got it cut shorter, but I hesitate.

My hesitancy stems from the 6-inch scar that runs from the base of my neck up to middle of the back of my skull – it was a gift from the neurosurgeon who performed my brain surgery in 2004.  This is not something that I want to explain over and over and over.  Not to mention the weird stares and gawking that would surely accompany a substantial scar that is visible through the hairline.  So, no, I will continue to wrestle with my disobedient locks.

With that decision, I’ve made my bed and will lay in it, but I don’t always have to like it.  It’s something all of us must do when we make a decision.  Where any choice we make doesn’t result in the happiest outcome.  Where we must choose the lesser of two evils.

For now, I hope that I don’t have another one of those truly bad hair days any time soon.  Maybe I should just whip out my straightening iron, and use the force of heat to make my mane submit to my will.  What is more likely is that I will twist in into a bun and secure it to the back of my head – like I do most days.
