I'm in the mood - on a search - for a new Summer hat.
I'm growing my hair longer and it's a painful process! It's seems to be
taking forever to get to a manageable length, plus, for the first time in
my life, after years of stick straight hair, it's going wavy.
I've been having the tiniest trim bi-monthly to keep the ends blunt
and healthy. I just don't want to look like an old woman who's not
caring for her hair.
Why on earth would someone of my advanced age even want
longer hair you ask. It's usually the time when we women are
expected to have a short, easy wash 'n go style. Well you
may recall I tried that a few years back, not me at all, and
in fact I had to fiddle with that style even more than my
ear-length classic bob which I've had forever!
This time it's more a question of holding onto the hair I have remaining - removal
of my thyroid 2 years ago, now being on permanent thyroid medication, and a
scalp condition, have all brought about hair loss. . . . . . . and this makes me sad
as I always had a thick head of hair.
Currently I no longer wash and blow dry daily to hopefully keep hair loss at a
minimum. Last year I decided to grow my hair to a length where hopefully
I can at least tie it back on hot summer days and not have to worry about styling
it with products and more heat.
I don't think I'm anywhere near a ponytail yet, however I've come this far
so will keep going a while longer. . . . . . . . unless I have a hissy fit one morning,
jump in the car and go get it cut off again!
Fortunately I do LOVE hats and have many.
But I'm looking for another after seeing these two - I really love
them - and am heading out to H&M and Anthro later today to see if
by chance they're in stock in my local stores.
Love this outfit but it would be even better, and safer, with a
beautiful hat to ward off the rays!
We'll be off on the road this Summer doing what we
promised ourselves, more USA travel to places in this
beautiful country. We've visited all 50 states however
there are plenty of places in those states we would love
to see again, and some new areas where we've yet
to leave a gentle footprint.
The way we used to fly off into the wild blue yonder!
So dear readers, any hair length stories to share - long, short, in between?
How about turning grey or coloring - or shall we leave that part for
Are you traveling, flying this Summer?
Do you plan ahead diligently like my hubby - who should find a second career
as a travel agent - or just 'fly by the seat of your pants' (read the history of this phrase)!
