Today was a good, but weird, day. Second day curly hair (I just wet my hands and gently wet my hair, put a small amount of extra product in, and used the diffuser to set it). The nice thing about wearing my hair curly two days in a row without washing it, is that, if it set well on the first day, the small addition of more product and setting it with cold air, makes the curls even nicer.
I’m telling you, I’ve worn my hair curly for four days now and today around 10 coworkers said something to me. That’s a huge number, comparatively to every other day…even when I wore it straight. The large number of people really loved my hair today and told me I should wear it like this all the time. One of my co-workers, with stunning curls, even asked me what product I use. I couldn’t believe it. So interesting.
But here’s the problem…1/4 days had my curly hair looking good enough to bring more than 1 or 2 people out of the woodwork. My hair never does the same thing twice when it’s curly. Everything from the water quality, to the shampoo I use, to the humidity in the air, affects how my hair looks that day. It happened to look great today. The other downside to constant curly hair to me is that, especially today, it feels like it has product in it. I like being able to run my fingers through my hair. I’d want a partner to want their fingers through my hair. It’s not really feasible when my hair has this much product in it. Thankfully, I use hair “lotions” so my hair doesn’t maintain that “wet curl”/”crunchy” look, but it’s also not “run you fingers through my hair” soft.
It was weird how many people came up to me today. I feel like all of them. All of the people came up to me to tell me to wear my hair like this.
Anyways…Number 10 tomorrow! I’ll do a bonus 11 and 12. 11 to catalogue my therapist’s reaction and 12 to catalogue the reactions when I go back to normal (despite it all, I still consider this to not be my norm) Monday.
