I'm sitting here with the giant sweaty rats-nest that my hair is now, after a week of bizarre, no-rinse hospital sponge-bath shampoo, and I'm thinking "I could just cut it all off." It sounds so damn tempting. First, because my hair has always been the first thing I've altered when unhappy with my appearance or how I feel about my body. Secondly because it's long enough to get in the way when it's down OR up, since it's not quite long enough to put completely up out of the way. Third, because I'm feeling overly warm (probably a wee fever) and it's always so nice to suddenly not have hair on your neck...
The cons of course are it is *just* getting long enough to actually wear up - it's so fine that there has to be a fair amount of length present before even hardcore product will do much of anything useful. I like how it looks long, and it's been quite a while since I had the fortitude to grow it out past my shoulders. But damn do I sure remember why I went and had it chopped short-n-cute before the gbs in 1999, and then shaved it completely (well, down to the 'blending' guard) not too long after.
I think my clippers are still mucked up, too. I took them apart to clean and then couldn't get them back together properly - sigh. So I'd only have the scissors, and it would be all patchy until I could get ahold of whoever's got a working set, and... there, I've exhausted myself by merely thinking about it, so I should be safe for the nonce. A good brushing out, shampooing and conditioning should help as well, so I'll put it on the agenda for later today. Damn it, where's that valet I requested?
