Flat Out

This is serious: My hair is so weird, and I'm having kind of a crisis about it.  What's going on is that it used to be sort of wavy.  Like since middle school.  Then, like 13 or 14 years later, I got pregnant and my hair got really curly and then stayed curly for three years.  Then, I got pregnant again, and it got even curlier. I ended up kind of liking it like that, and I've been wearing it in a short style on which I've gotten lots of compliments.

Now, it's four years after that last pregnancy, and low and behold, my hair is going straight.  Maybe it's just a teensy bit wavy, but only over the ears. Otherwise, just straight and puffy.

So, I've been experimenting with various different hairstyles and I've decided to grow it out, which is a real pain. Last night, I blow-dried it, and then when I woke up this morning, I parted it far over on the right.  It looked very straight and kind of hung in my face a little.  Different and acceptable, I decided.

8th graders like to comment on every change in appearance, so naturally they noticed my hair.

"Oh my gosh!" said Will.  "Did you get a Brazilian blow job?"

Um, no, Will.  No, I did not.

I'm glad you're back in middle school. The kids to all the funniest things.

the hair thing. it has happened to me several times and also, i am always obsessing over my hair me. the change is probably hormone related AND it really could also be the change in the weather. my hair was curly all summer and now it is flat and straight. anyway you always look beautiful KC. xo

I have some strange, new hairs growing in since pregnancy. And they are gray. Every single on of them gray. It's annoying.

that is hilarious. the comment, that is, not the hair woes.

Hair Shmair, let's not compare.

I can get pretty down about hair sometimes, so I get this. Still, I thought
a little rhyme to help us through the hard times might be helpful in future.

You can't make this stuff up.

I'm so late on this post, but it seems we were having hair crises on the same day! Hair crises really can be a drag. But your new hairstyle sounds great!
