While My Hair Dries...

Why does it take so long for my hair to dry enough to style it? I've yet to find the perfect thing to occupy me while it air dries. I don't like to use the blow dryer on my hair too often because it tends to dry it out. So, I decided to hop on blogger this morning while my wet curls surround my scalp and the furnace pulls out the moisture.

So, you knew when you clicked on this blog title that you'd be reading about hair. Women are so fickle when it comes to our hair. We use all kinds of chemicals, curling irons, dryers, hot rollers, perms, straighteners, tints, and so much more just to make our hair look "better."

Why? Why are we not satisfied with what God gave us? I have a dear friend who has beautiful curly hair. It is thick and luxurious with a "just permed" curl. I love it. She hates it. She likes to get her hair straightened. I suppose if my hair were curly all the time, I might want to know what it would feel like to have my hair move around my shoulders. But, since my hair doesn't look like the models on television when it is straight, I try to compensate by occasionally getting a perm. Then I hate it. I can't do anything with it. The top doesn't blend with the rest because the top of my hair doesn't take a perm well.

So, here I sit writing a nonsense blog while I wait for my curls to dry enough to style.

What about you? Are you ever satisfied with your hair?

How strange. I thought you women with short hair never had to wait for it to dry. LOL. Just goes to show that the grass may LOOK greener on the other side, but it's still grass after all.

Have a wonderful day my dear friend. I enjoy thinking of you.

I just bought a straightening iron a few weeks ago and have never been happier with my hair. Truly. It goes under so much nicer now.

Sharon, you are so right with your analogy of the grass. I enjoy thinking of you as well. Hope to see you soon! God bless.

Jennifer, I'm glad you are happy with your straightening iron. I've always been dangerous with anything hot near my face. I manage to burn my neck, my cheek, and wind up with hair that looks...well...strange. LOL!
