Bad Hair Day

I just washed my hair and I can't do a thing with it! Can you believe this? Everyone said my hair would grow in curly, instead it's growing in squirrely. How are you supposed to style this? I know it's "normal" but it looks really funny. I don't even want to talk about the gray. Where the hell did that come from?

Time for us to see a new picture. Pretty soon you will be able to make a little wave in front and look like Rachel Maddow.

I had to chuckle when I saw this. I myself have been plagued my whole life by two very prominent cowlicks, one at each edge of my forehead. When they are at their most unruly, it appears I'm sprouting horns. For about a decade I had very long hair, and now I keep it really short. These are about the only two options I have.

When my son was born it did not take us long to realize the poor kid inherrited this trait, with one unfortunate modification. The two cowlicks merge right above the center of his forehead. I've always described it as a hair hurricane. There is a full 360 degrees of rotation. And while it is devestatingly cute now, the poor boy is not going to have even fewer options than I when he gets older.

It looks like a satellite weather view of an impending storm. Actually gray is very least that is what I said when I started going gray.
I think onnce it is all grown in, you will find that you will look just fine. If you are not happy there is Clairol. More important than your hair and its color is that you are a survivor.
