I did it.
Yesterday, I went to my hair stylist.
Gone is the unknown color invasion. The dry, unruly, and a bit scratchy pandemic hair. My should-have-been-natural color has been restored. My curls are soft and nonfrazzled. What’s more, I feel thoroughly pampered. I feel a bit less frazzled.
Interesting isn’t it? What was once merely something to be scheduled and maintained has evolved into an indulgent luxury. So what if I wore a mask the whole time? It didn’t deter at all from the moment.
(As a quick aside, I actually don’t mind wearing masks. At first it was a bit odd, but now it is just – well – what you do.).
Anyway, clearly I learned a little lesson about appreciation and self care – and one I will need to remember in the future. In the meantime, I’m already looking forward to next month’s appointment.
As always, thank you for reading and stay safe.
