Starting Over....AGAIN

Well, I did it. I'm takin' the plunge. It's past time. I've been remiss in my responsibilities these last few weeks and it's time to just get 'er done.

'Er being my hair.

I finally broke down yesterday and called the local salon - same chain I was visiting in Orlando. Tonite is the night. Cut and color.

Holy shit.

The idea of some strange woman standing behind me with sissors....and control....YIKES!

I told the girl when I scheduled the appointment that I get really nervous the first time someone does my hair.

She promised they'd be gentle.

I wonder if they use that line on everyone?

I know what your going through.

I've been going to the same person for 16 years now and I still get a little freaked out that she is just going to spaz out and cut all my hair off.

And of course I told her this once and now everytime I go in for a cut she always says "oops, oh well it will grow back".

Crap, I stopped going to hair salons ages ago. Being ....non white....and getting my hair straightened left me with scabs on my scalp, brittle, dry hair, and $60+ light in the pocket.

They always used to hack off a HECK of a lot more than they said they would when "trimming". 3" is not a friggin' TRIM.

Now I HAVE to go cause I need to get my greys dyed. I've had them since 22-23, and recently I've had literally 6-8 people make comments in the last 2-3 weeks. I can't do it myself cause the dye doesn't seem to takes (Learned that from trying to dye it blue once, many, many years and piercings ago).
