Lots of hair

My oldest son has let his hair grow for the past 4 years and when it is combed and conditioned it is fabulous loose Shirley Temple curls. Now when he gets it braided and wears a scull cap for months and doesn’t comb it that’s a whole other situation­čÖł. He resigned himself to cutting it off and last night it happened, I first had to cut off all the braids one by one to even get to what was a huge dread underneath. He just kept complaining about It hurting, ugh yeah. So here is the small animal I cut off his head. I think he is 10lbs lighter at this point and it sure has to feel better.

Hair updates

If you follow my blog you are aware i am in the process of going blond to blend the wonderful skunk patches of white that keep appearing. If it was all white I would love it but its not so as a licensed cosmologist (not my profession however) I just go to the beauty supply to get bleach.
Last weekend as the man golfed and the pie baked I bleached (multitasker right) and my hair just sits at canary yellow because it is the most resistant hair in America. Can you say burn, burn, burn. My scalp has now demanded coconut oil nightly. Recommendation, do not put bleach close to your scalp, I do it because i can but this is not the proper way and it will burn the crap out of you. Here is stage 2 and 3, man my nose looks long and i need botox but color is good 

Hair adventures

I went to beauty school almost 20 years ago and swore when I started that I was not going to be the hairdresser who always changed her hair, well I was dumb and the career in a salon was short lived but I did develop an addiction to changing my hair. Nothing crazy like purple with shaved sides but the color changes at least one a month and when I was in college and a full time mom I developed some natural blond (white). This month for my 49th birthday I am going back to light because it’s now impossible to cover the natural blond but there’s still enough dark to not be able to go platinum (I’m dreaming of this day). Since my hair is short I try all kinds of different things, this hair color was a 2 step process, first high volume peroxide with a light brown last month to lighten the dark roots and then today a beautiful batch of purple bleach, twice to get it to a strawberry blond. Luv the color.
