So, this is the day when things in England are supposed to be opening up, including hair salons. As everyone will be rushing to get their hair cut as soon as possible, I think that I might wait awhile. I need to decide what to do with my hair!
Here is a very candid photo to show you exactly what it looks like at the moment. As I am so ill, I only manage to wash my hair every three or four days. When it is first washed, my hair is quite curly – it used to be very curly when I was younger. Over a couple of days, most of the curls drop out, leaving a few at the ends.
My hair has always been fine, but was much thicker when I was young. Its colour was naturally a dark blonde or “mouse”, but I dyed it regularly and all kinds of shades from dark brown to golden blonde, from auburn to mid brown with pink streaks. It is now a dark grey with silver strands near my face. As I have got older, my hair has thinned on top quite drastically, mainly due to a really serious attack of blood poisoning in my late thirties. At that time, my hair fell out almost totally and grew back much finer and thinner than before.
So, what shall I do with it now? I tried to ask Lovely Husband, but he refused to commit himself to an answer, saying that it is entirely my decision. Well, that is a very gallant position, but it doesn’t really help!
Can anyone assist me? Should I just have a trim and leave it longer or cut it short again like I used to wear it. My scalp will always show through, whether my hair is longer or shorter. My hair curls more when my hair is longer, which is a bit strange. Maybe I’m getting a bit obsessed and over-thinking. After all, I am in bed most of the day so only LH and ES see my hair on a daily basis!
Anyway, here are four photos of different lengths. Only one is “straight from the hairdresser” – I expect you can guess which one! Which do you think is the best?
OK, that’s enough self-indulgence for one post!
Love and best wishes,
