If I have one true obsession, this is probably it. Which is strange, because I really don’t fuss over my hair. I like my dreads because I can hit the salon once a month, spend an hour under the drier, and ignore it for the next thirty days. So it’s strange that I call this an obsession.

But the truth is I love hair. I love to see it on other people’s heads, to touch it, to run my hands through it. I saw this Citi Hoppa conductor yesterday, a tough gangster-looking chick with a killer bob – I couldn’t stop staring! It was weird that her coiffe was so girly, but it just looked so perfect!

I wish I had caucasian [or at least Asian] hair so I could make it stand, dye it purple and pull a Roxette, just like my avatar. But, of course, if I actually had Caucasian hair, I’d probably still ignore it. I like my Sailor’s hair because it’s brown and softly spiky, I can run my hands through it, and he never has to comb it. Perfect!

Back to my own head. The short look has grown on me. And thanks to selective perception, I now notice all the girls [and boys] with long luxurious locks. Kind of like that scene in Ally McBeal where Georgia cut her hair, and then Nell came and twirled hers in the bathroom mirror.

But the odd thing is that I’m not jealous. I actually like my hair like this, even as everyone asks why. I think it’s because everyone asks why. I’ve always liked going against ‘them’, standing out for all the wrong reasons. In a world where the ladies either want their hair deliciously long, intricately bobbed, or rebelliously shorn, I kind of like being inbetween.

So, I think I’ll keep my hair short after all. Unless I change my mind. Or unless my Sailor says otherwise *wink* He’s surprisingly quiet on the matter. But then again, he’s a guy. Do you think he’s even noticed?

  1. I recently cut my hair after 7 months. It still feels odd to walk with no hair on my head.

    And to answer your question, men do notice. He will notice.

  2. With the weather warming up, am kinda trying to figure out what to do with my hair. I grew it out from last Fall because I didn’t want to be bald in the winter weather.
    Now am trying to figure out whether I should keep growing it, or just cut it. If am to grow it I guess I’ll go your way and get dreads. Maybe…

    There has to be a way you can remove me from that

  9. Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally
    confused .. Any tips? Cheers!

  10. Hello there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to
    find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
