Follicular dysmorphia

"Your hair doesn't do that," my hairdresser said.

After a lifetime of wrestling and scrunching and smoothing my snarling tresses I finally learned the truth. It was obvious once I looked in the mirror after she explained it.

"It does this." She said, the first hair professional to ever simply explain.

I'm adjusting to this new, old reality. I'll probably still try to make it do that once in a while, applying products and hot metals to the effort. But there is something to knowing that it just doesn't do that. And this is okay.

** And yes, L, this is an allegory, an allusion, an analogy, and a true story.



    It's not a bad hair day, it's Follicular Dysmorphia!

    ZOMG, love it, Laura!
