Today I went for a haircut and color to the same place I always go. My hairdresser wants to try a new color to tone down the brassiness. When she washes it for the third time time I say, "It's blue, isn't it?" Oh yes! Not light powder blue like we see some times. No, more like the blue in the American flag. The good thing it's not all over, just near the roots. I did not have time for a correction today but will go back after the holiday. I guess if I wear red and white this week end I will be dressed for the holiday week end. wink The funny thing is (besides the color of my hair) there was a time in my life that this would have really upset me. Now I think, heck there are worse things than blue hair that have happened to me. Have a great week end everyone.

Thank you for the laugh and smile! I've been soo stressed this week, I needed. I'm also having a flare up. Now, when you are wearing your red pants and white shirt, or white pants and red shirt, dont forgot to style your starts. :P

Think of the bright side, you got hair! I'm 29, female and No Hair! Darn chemotherapy. Course I did figure out if you read my post that there is no laws in making cops spill their coffee by pulling your wig off in front of them! I also figured out its a great way to mess with friends, just pluck a wig right off. Or a friend you havent seen in awhile, just show up bald. They jump backwards and go "Wooooahh".

Last week, I had a dental appointment. Anyhow, the poor guy is a very compassionate, and cute dentist. He's seen me walk in with my hair to the bottom of my rear, cut to my shoulders. Then recently (with my shaved head now lol) I decided to my appointment, just to walk in without a wig or anything. He looked at me turned to speak to someone, spun back around, looked at me agian and goes "Woooah what happened to your hair?" So I told him "what hair?" he laughed then I told him I shaved it for a children's cancer fundraiser since I had to do chemotherapy again. During the visit, a nurse came up informing him (jokingly) that she signed him up to work with the preschooler's. I started cracking up, knowing him way to well, he couldn't do it. He'd cry with the kids, really. He's the only dentist I've ever seen that sits there going "I'm sorry I'm sorry this hurts just a little bit more. I'm so sorry honey" when he is injecting that numbing crap. He's just too compassionate to work on children lol...but he's great with kids. He's played "dentist" (a cop out of "doctor") with my 6 year old boy as he was working on my teeth LOL.

Hee hee!  Now Puppylover, I don't know how old you are but I remember creeping behind little old ladies going 25 miles an hour down the road in their monster Buicks and blue hair...they used to use some rinse to cover the gray...Flex or something like that, and it ALWAYS turned blue...apparantly it was very stylish!
Yikes!  It just occured to me that I am now one of those little old ladies...Oh, the humanity!
I think you will look very patritoic and if I see you over this holiday week-end I will stand at attention and  put my hand over my heart.

Donna, I'm 64 and certainly do remember little old ladies with blue cotton candy looking hair. I refuse to think of myself as one of these gals. I think I'll look really" punk" riding my bike down the street, wearing red pants, white tee shirt and this cool blue hair. tongue

Squirrle, I've had orange, purple and pink hair before. When I was in high school I experimented with hair dyes a lot.

Smurfy, sorry that you are going through so much at such a young age. Good luck with the chemo. Not fun right now but you seem to have a wonderful and positive attitude while you are going through this.

Puppylover, you will probably start a fad among local teenagers with your blue hair and red and white outfit! Yes, I can remember being at an age where a beauty shop mishap would have really bothered me. Now, I would probably just go with the flow. I admire your healthy attitude and sense of humor. These things are so important in keeping our lives on an even keel. Smurf, I am sorry to hear that you are having so many health problems at such a young age. You also have a great sense of humor and a positive outlook.

Have a fun and safe holiday weekend everyone!
