Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “hair.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
I can remember back in my childhood, a case of hair today gone tomorrow. I went from having quite long hair that was often styled in a ponytail, pigtails or plait, to having a totally cropped style. It made me look very boyish so did wonders for my self esteem. Particularly when I often had to wear boys shoes to accommodate the bunions on my feet.
To add insult to injury we suddenly changed to this foul smelling shampoo. I couldn't fathom what was going on.
It wasn't until years later when it came up in conversation with my Mum that she admitted that I had come home from school with the dreaded signs of nits! In her wisdom she felt I would have been mortified to know I'd got them so she just decided to take action. Drastic action!
Personally I think I would have coped better if I'd known. I might have put up enough of a protest to keep my hair.
