Hello Dear Reader,
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a hair cut and DB and I went for hair cuts yesterday in our local salon. I used to get it professionally coloured every four weeks and I stopped that in July last year so I have a year’s growth. It’s odd that I felt compelled to colour it for so long but then it’s odd what women feel socially compelled to do. Men still don’t dye their hair and just go grey.
On the TV you’ll see male and female presenters and she’ll have her hair dyed and he’ll happily be grey. My grey hair is not me ‘giving up dying it’, it’s me being me. Oh, and I’ll keep hold of the £416 a year I was paying to get it coloured as well as the £5 a time tip, adding another £65 (£481) to that. I’ll spend that money on something a lot more fun than keeping up appearances.
So dear female readers, I’m not being brave, radical, subversive as this is just my natural state. Humans age and some of them go grey, white or lose their hair and that’s ok. We don’t have to have the follicular appearance of youthful hair as we are good enough as we are.
You can imagine what I spent the money I saved on…………I sneaked in an extra trip to France mid-term at the end of May, beginning of June, bought an French armoire, some beautiful lamps for my bedroom, a room sized rug, some lovely wine and entertained friends to a lovely supper. All with the money I saved.
So your hair, my hair, anyone’s hair/appearance/looks is their own and they can do as they please with it! We age and if anyone doesn’t like it, then they can spend a fortune and hours fight it. Me? I’m just going to own it!
Love Froogs xx
