So, it’s October, month 10.  I haven’t caved yet but there are days…  Due to my lack of interest in styling my hair, I’m still struggling with the awkward growing out stuff.  I have purchased a brush which I have used once – with a blowdryer! This is big stuff for me.  I also bought some root lifter product, also used exactly once.

Each visit to the Dollar Store (I buy my dog’s Pepcid there and thus a frequent visitor…), I have spent about a dollar  on a new accessory, most of which I still can’t use.  Beth, probably tired of hearing me complain about my hair in my face, bought me this adorable bejeweled headband shown with some of my Dollar Store finds.


My version of styling – wash (or not), if washed, part with hands, air dry:


Which results in this later in the day – hair in face:

In the face  

Which leads to a headband the moment I get home.  Add that to my ritual of immediately removing all jewelry and donning pajamas as early in the evening as possible.  It’s a good look.

For those who think my hair isn’t growing fast, check out a pic from last year’s Booklovers’ Ball and one from this year.  And yes, someone else did my hair.  If she had seen the before picture, she wouldn’t have kept asking me if she was making it too short with all the curls!  Yeah, right.
