I'm not really a high maintenance gal. READ: Make-up is too much trouble and I wear my IronMan t-shirt every day. But, and this is a huge but - as opposed to a huge BUTT, which is a post for another day, I guess - I've always at least tried to maintain my hair in a reasonable, I-can-be-seen-in-public kind of way.
Seriously, though? It really is a lot of trouble.
I like my hair best when it's in the red/chestnut family of hues, but I have found that those do fade very quickly. I've been considering letting it go gray for a while now, and I'm considering it even more and more often lately. Like, I think about it all the time. ALL. THE. TIME.
But something keeps holding me back, and that's kind of pissing me off. So I keep coloring it. And I keep having gray roots all the flippin' time. All. The. Time.
See, a few weeks ago, my roots were getting in a BAD way, so I picked a box of something called "root touch up" at the grocery. Don't judge me for making my hair care decisions in the middle of Kroger. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. Anyway, I got this box of stuff, a bargain at $5, no less, and came home to try it out.
"COVER YOUR ROOTS IN AS LITTLE AS 10 MINUTES!" the box promised. "MATCHES ALL SHADES OF REDDISH BROWN HAIR DYE!" It proclaimed.
Lies, I tell you. All lies. LIES.
What I ended up with was a stripe of dark brown right at my part, which made me look for all the world like a backward skunk. See?
Which, I guess, was somewhat better than the non-backward skunk I looked like before I did it. I guess.
So anyway, my hair is getting on my nerves.
And this post, which is totally narcissistic and pointless, is also getting on my nerves.
I think I'll go find something more productive to do than worry about my hair.
