I cannot be the only woman in the world who hates to comb her hair can I?
I mean I hate it.
I’ve hated it since I was a kid.
So much so that my mom chopped my hair off when I was 6, I think, because I wouldn’t let her comb it. I’m pretty sure I was a royal, tender-headed-whiner. Correct me if I’m wrong, mom.
Now that I’m all grown up, I comb through it with conditioner in the shower with a “detangler” comb, made for the shower. Then I toss some some Bed Head Hi-Def Curls leave-in conditioner in it, which smells like grape soda and is yummy, btw, and leave it be.
I also cannot be the only woman whose hair ends up with a big tangled rats’ nest where my collar meets the hairline on the neck? Or the only woman with super fine hair that tangles if the wind thinks about blowing, can I?
But I think I found a solution! Hallelujah! Tangled hair doesn’t braid very easily. All I have to do for it to become tangled is sleep on it. Seriously. And because my hair is taking FOR-freakin-EVER to grow out (can we say extensions, anyone?), I have now discovered the messy, side pony tail. And the best part, it not only works with a cap, but it also works with my cowboy hat! S-C-OOOOOOOOOOOOOO-R-E one for me!
Basically, I just take a ponytail holder, that matches my outfit (because matching is at the top of the list, right ladies?), wrap it twice, and then loop my hair back through it the third time. It’s off my neck, and so far the rats’ nest under my collar area isn’t getting as knotted up as normal, when I wear it in a braid, or a pony tail at the back of my head.
Also, I have realized I have to get out more. I’ve only been off the ranch twice this summer for social events (Art in the Park and a barrel race last Thursday). The photo below was from when I headed to the barrel race last week. I’m sporting my fancy new ‘do.
Here’s the million dollar question (or two)- Do you have the same hair problem that I do, and if so, what are your tricks or solutions?
Don’t leave me
hairing, um I mean hanging!
