Never has my hair been worse.

First world problems, I know, but hang with me here.

I’d like to blame my broken locks on quarantine, but I always go 6+ months between trims because I like to let myself look as terrible as possible before doing something about it.

Apparently the dry Colorado weather is v helpful in breaking my ends – not that they needed much help. It’s also not holding a curl here so my super long, lanky, lifeless hair is doing wonders for my super long, lanky lifeless face. I have not had my hair done by anyone other than my usual Memphis gal in 10+ years. Minus the one time I tried to get it done in WA and the woman berated me for filling in my eyebrows vs. threading them. It was a treat, really. But I couldn’t wait until I go to Memphis next. & my what a pleasant experience it turned out to be! I forgot what a luxury it was to be shampooed by another. She was also brutally honest – “Umm I’m going to have to take a lot off…is that OK?” But nary a word about my brows & for that I am grateful!

She also suggested I stop wearing my hair up and I need to connect her with my 5th grade boyfriend who also suggested I stop doing that because he thought it looked ugly.
