These locks of mine.....
My hair started showing signs of acting like a truant child. But with a hair brush and some leave in conditioner, i made my locks behave somewhat. I think my hair got mad at me for the torture inflicted yesterday. Overnight, my locks had a meeting and decided to give me hell and make me pay.
This morning, i untied my scarf and my locks seemed harmless enough. Out came the comb and brush and i swear i saw some slight movement and felt a shiver go down my spine. . Okay so i just felt like typing that. Anyway, i combed my hair back. Step number one completed. Time to part the hair. That's when it became harrowing. I couldnt get a straight line. Okay. I managed with a curvy sort of line and then the leave in conditioner came out for a gentle spritz. My hair began to resist the efforts of the conditioner. My hair just refused to lie down. I used my little claw thingy to put it up and my hair was just falling over the place.
Oh for the love of .....Ah Ah. I ended up brushing the hair very severly and pulling it into a ponytail. Didnt look quite right either. So i tucked the ponytail under into a sort of bun like looking thing.
Drove to work. Came into the office. Brought out my powder compact and i couldnt believe it. My hair was swollen. I mean literally. It was bone straight and flat as paper when i left the house. So why was it rising? Looking like some afro puffs corralled into a knot. Out came the brush and and attempt to calm it down. Some sort of success but there are some tufts of my hair sticking out at the back. What kind of nonsense is this?
This would be one of the days that chopping all my hair off seems like a mighty fine option. Sheesh! I actually am pretty close to tears. Of frustration. I have 2 meetings today with clients and i will be looking like a golliwog.
