if i have one life, let me live it as a blond



my realtime friend Ellen, who is extremely politically correct and was raised as a second generation red diaper baby, used to keep on asking me when i was going to stop polluting the environment by bleaching my hair (i only had highlights then). after telling her, for several years, that i will continue to bleach my hair until i shape-shift and enter a parallel universe, she now just looks at me disapprovingly when i say that i'm going to get my all of my hair bleached.


15. if i have one life, let me live it as a blonde


to get all of the hairs on my head blonde, i have to have double process color, since my (gasp!) secret.gif natural hair color is dark, dark brown. this entails me sitting on a chair with bleach on my head for approx. 3-5 hours, depending on how long my roots are. i cannot sit with bleach on my head for more than 2 hours on any given day because if i do, my scalp will itch and my hair will break and i will have to go back for a new cut and another trim or two before i start the process again. head_hurts.gif in this case, i then feel like i'm a cat with eczema who's shedding and was taken to the groomer and given a bad trimming. yikes.gif


so now, after getting my hair bleached for only 1.5 hours, my hair is platinum at the ends and sort of a reddish bronzish blonde (or blondish red bronze) at the roots. Laurie, my hairdresser, and i agreed that i looked like a peach. Sob.gif at least it was better than looking like a chicken or a pumpkin. i am going back at 8 am today and getting my hair processed again. i am sitting here blogging with a large amount of dried conditioner on my head.


oh, the places i will go and the things i will do for beauty.

Sandy, there may be another way to go. My sister was county committee chairman for one of the political parties and this necessitated her always having her hair just so - at any given time. She started wearing wigs. Yes, they are bothersome to my way of thinking, but a lot easier than going through the bleaching. She never goes any place now without one (she has 2 so she can switch and for when one must go to the shop) Would this work out of you?

in another lifetime i had two wigs and wore them for a short while. they felt hot and uncomfortable to me. i would rather bleach my hair two days in a row then wear a wig.


thankyou.gif thanks for the suggestion, though
