I am weak

I couldn't take it anymore and washed my hair last night. I even used shampoo for the first time in years! My dreads came apart easily. Ah, sweet conformity! :D
aceofkittens: (burningman)
So here's my plan: I'm not going to wash my hair until I finish all my post-Burning Man cleanup. The playa caked into my hair will give me strength.

I will then most likely have to get all my hair shaved off. I already have dreads!

I really hoped that my first update for May would be one of those deep and meaningful posts that I keep thinking about writing (and then never do), but I really just want to express my sorrow about the fact that my hair care product line has been discontinued, and I am thus doomed to a future with sad, frizzy hair.

Carry on.

There is apparently a T-Mobile outage, which has disabled my precious, precious Sidekick, lifeline to the Internet! My SIM chip is also affected, so I have lost my contact list. Woe! Hopefully, it will be fixed soon.

Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] emmiepie cut my hair yesterday. She asked if I would mind if she straightened it. I said, sure, go ahead! I love it when stylists straighten my hair. It makes me look like Elrond! :D The double-takes were very satisfying (especially from [livejournal.com profile] toastmantom) and I really had a great time 'on the other side.' But, like always, this morning my hair is already creeping back into curl and I am happy to let it do so. I used to want stick-straight hair, but I am happy now with my tangled wild mane (even if my mother isn't).

Well, on to an exciting day of furniture shopping hell!

Earlier today, I got the best haircut OF MY LIFE EVER. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] emmiepie!

My mom was like: "What? I thought you were actually getting a haircut. You just barely trimmed it." WHATEVER! It is so awesome and looks great!

Pictures to come. Photos under the cut

I'm just not sure if the "no shampoo" experiment has resulted in my hair becoming mo' bettah curly, or just dirty.

It sure feels dirty. :(

I washed my hair with shampoo this morning for the first time in four months. I felt like such a traitor to my Curly Girl regimen, but I want to forestall the resurgence of a scalp condition that I have had before, which seems to be coming back. My hair didn't seem any less nor any more curly today after the shampooing. We'll see how it goes.

A lot of people seem to have strong opinions on what I should do with my hair in terms of style, length, and color. That's cool, but basically I like having long hair and I am content with its current length, style (or crazy lack thereof), and color. I did say I would cut it if I didn't get cast onto the Mark Burnett pirate reality show, and then I didn't get into the show NOR cut my hair. Ho hum.

Oh well, just call me Rapunzel! :)

For the photo meme, [livejournal.com profile] dreamervictoria asked to see pics of my hair and hair care regimen. I happily oblige!

Wherein I reveal that I haven't washed my hair in months )
Still need to post:I will post you! )

Ho hum

I feel like I should update, but everything I want to really update about would take so much effort - taking pics, uploading pics, etc.!

It's very annoying: my newly dyed hair barely lasted a week. I don't know if it was being in the desert or the NoRinse shampoo, or what, but it's faded almost completely. Dyeing it again seems like a lot of effort. Cutting it seems like a lot of effort.

Everything seems like too much effort right now, have you noticed?


But now I will blather on excitedly about meeting The King of All Mangoes )

Woo! Hair!

My hair is now streaked with purple and red. Woo!

I absolutely love it and may not cut it off like I planned originally. My corporate lifestyle be damned! :)

So, I'm going on vacation tomorrow and will be back in a week. Try not to burn anything down while I'm gone and ... well, I may burn some stuff down while I'm gone. :)

See ya in September! :)

For some reason, lately, various random people, friends, acquaintances, and so on, all seem to be very concerned about the length of my hair. I've had at least 6+ people in the last few weeks inquire a) if perhaps I might be planning to cut my hair soon and b) no? well I ought to think about it.

What gives? I mean, yes, it's long... and perhaps it's approaching Lady Godiva/Rapunzel length. But so what? I wear it up 90% of the time, anyway, so who cares? It's not like I can sit on it (yet). And even if I could, why does it matter? No, I just don't get this communal fascination with my luxurious tresses. ;)

Also, while on my pants-purchasing journey yesterday, I encountered a swarm of bees. No. Seriously. A swarm of bees. I ran from them like a little girl, squealing and flailing my arms.

I think this bodes well for the rest of the week.

Well, the new anus hasn't started off with a bang. Ha, ha, I just had to say that.

I'm bleh. The mean girl cat peed all over my room again today (my mom tries to defend her, but I just can't see any of the other cats doing it), and I can still smell it. Of course, earlier this anus, my mom's ill-fated experiment in home brewing exploded violently in our so-called "wine cellar" in the garage. And I can still smell that too! Yeast and pee -- two great olfactory sensations that go great together.

The good news is, I finally brushed my hair for the first time this anus, so it's no longer turning into one giant dreadlock/nest for small woodland creatures.

The wind seems to have died down, which is a good thing, because my window is broken and liable to just fall out any minute now, I think. I have to call the landlord, but his lack of English-language skills is always a deterrent.

When I was walking from my car, the gusts of wind were literally pushing me around. This high wind thing ended up with the power knocked out for at least four hours tonight, sending me into a tailspin of soul-searching. While I do have a lot of candles (and peeing by candlelight is always exciting!), electricity is what I'm all about. The laptop didn't seem to be discharging as quickly as I had feared it would, but I logged out to conserve the battery, just in case. Then I sat there, surrounded by candles, pining.

The computer owns me.

I think something has got to be done about my hair. I lost another chunk of it to a rubber band yesterday. I wonder if I'd still look absolutely horrible with short hair or if my newly rediscovered cheek bones would make a difference.

Mmm... marzipan.

...and the screaming that filled my head all day..

I'm listening to a mix tape someone made me a long time ago. Actually, it wasn't all that long ago, but it seems like it. It was just before burning CDs really took off, so in a way, I suppose it was back in the Dark Ages. Anyway, that's a line from a song on that tape.

Why I'm annoyed right now! )

The weekend's hair disaster )

Last night, the boy cats slept with me. One was on top of the covers, and the other burrowed his way in under the covers into the same spot. It was nice.
