What did you do to your hair?!

Lately when I looked in the mirror I didn't like what I saw.

I saw this haggard looking woman, with messy long hair.

I could of course have tried to get some rest. But who has the time?! So I decided to force the issue, and get myself a perm! After all, if your hair looks perky, your whole look perks up!

But as is often the case with a perm, it takes some time to settle. In other words: right now I'm sporting a big afro.

It's been two weeks, and I'd kind of forgotten all about it when my aunt came to visit. As I opened the door to let her in, I saw her eyes widen with a mixture of glee and alarm.

'What did you to do to your hair?' she asked me.
'Erm… I got myself a perm,' I said, and tried to smooth my afro down a bit.
'That must have cost you a fortune,' she said.
'No, I went to a cheap hairdresser.'
She nodded solemnly and said with pity in her voice: 'That's what I thought.'

I felt a bit unsettled after this conversation. But you couldn't tell by looking at me.

Because my hair looked as perky as ever.

  2. Hahaha! I don't even want to think about what someone would think if they knocked on my door and saw my hair. I am in desperate need of a haircut and it shows. Too funny.

  3. My mom used to get perms all the time...we always teased her about it. We joked that she looked like a poodle haha. Well hope your perkiness stays & your hair relaxes πŸ™‚

  4. I have naturally curly hair so I have never really understood the drive to perm ones hair πŸ™‚ Having a sense of perky is neat though, i like that mindset! I think it is awesome you took a chance!
