Yup! Eventually 🙂 I’ve been “threatening” for waaayyyyyy too long. And then I changed my mind, and then I changed it again. But two weeks ago, I finally cut my hair and I donated it to CANSA in honour of my dear friend who lost her battle to cancer last year. [Side note: this was a personal choice and not something that I’m looking for recognition for, I’m just writing about it here on my blog, as this is where I share all my thoughts]
Now I’ve short hair before, this isn’t a first, but I’ve had long hair for so long that I’m kind of battling to manage the shorter style. Not that it’s unruly or an effort to actually do, but I’m finding it difficult to blow into the style that I chose…
And then my biggest problem is what to do with it at night when I go to bed!! When I had long hair, I would just pin it up or make a loose bun or whatever. And the next day – whether I had my hair loose, curly or straight, pinnned up, in a grip, whatever – I would just brush or comb it out, style it and go…okay, a little bit more effort than that when you have “coloured hair” ;-)…but minimal fuss! Now that my hair is short, it doesn’t all fit into a pony tail and I’m not used to sleeping with my hair loose. Not to mention the fact that when I do sleep with it loose, it just looks like a mushroom (and sometimes a very wild one :-)) when I wake up!!!! The hubster suggested last night that I put a swirlkous (a.k.a stocking) on and I was flabbergasted. I haven’t used one of those since I was like 12years old, or thereabouts. I have idea how to even swirl my hair. And then the horror of having to sleep next to my husband with that thing on my head. Arrggghhh, I just don’t know.
But maybe I’m going to have to do it in order save time in the morning. I mean, I cannot spend ages in the morning trying to get my hair to co-operate. At this rate, I’m going to have to start waking up at 5am just to sort my hair out 😦
What do you do with your hair when you sleep? Do you wear a swirlkous (just thinking about it makes me want to laugh)!!! Do you spend ages getting your hair perfect or is it the least of your worries in the morning?
