We've all had them... the worst haircut or hair mistake ever! It didn't just go away either... Travel back to that tragic day that your hair went wrong. What happened? How did you deal with the problem... did it take a long time to work it out or grow it out?
The first thought that came to mind when I was remembering bad hair was the Summer of 1984. I went with my mother to my aunts house out of town. Her daughter was taking care of a church member's pool (my uncle was and is a church of Christ preacher)... I don't think she managed the chemicals properly because one day (really one hour) in that pool and my hair was florescent lime green. It was terrible!
We tried a few home remedies that didn't help at all. The front was still blond, and the back remained really bright green. I wore it frenchbraided that night for a movie outing. My braid looked yellow and green striped.
It was terrible!
The next day my SIL (who had taken cosmetology in h.s.) had the genius idea to pull hair bleach through all my hair. Gobs of green bleach came out of my hair.
It was terrible.
I was left with very very light, very very brittle, very very damaged hair. It took almost a year to recover back to normal. I cut it into a short bob to get the worst off and this all happened the weekend before I started my first year in High School.
It was terrible!
One thing I can say I know while traveling back to this situation in my mind is that it was all fine and my hair grew back... I also thought about my friend Melody. She got butchered years ago at the beauty shop and left crying with the shortest hair she's ever had. I don't know how long it took to live through that one... AND then the time I ruined Matt's hair. We were newlyweds and I didn't know to put the guard on the clippers, so I went straight over his ears and shaved his sides bald. He had really thick, black hair. We had to cut it 1/4 in. all over and blend the bald sides. It was pretty bad. The worst part is I couldn't stop laughing. He didn't appreciate that much. I think I laugh sometimes when I maybe should cry :o)!
Can't wait to read about your hair follies.
