Okay, so here I am trucking along on the anti virals and feeling pretty crummy this past month on them. One reason why you have not heard from me in awhile, as well as my husband had a sudden case of pneumonia, in hospital and for the first 3 days they were not sure he was even going to make it. YIKES. He is home and doing well now, thank god.
Anyway, throughout the past 3 years of sickness..I was still vain about one thing and that was my hair. No matter how crappy I felt I always made sure it was cut and colored..as I got sicker I ended up with alot of gray. My hairdresser told me abx can do that to some people..
I wear my hair in a shorter style as it is very thick and ALOT of natural curl/wave. I am dark haired naturally and pretty much dye that way as well.
So today, my daughter who went to Beauty School for 4 years in High School, passed her boards and got her license tells me I am looking old. Gee thanks. She thinks I should be Platinum Blonde with low lights.
I agree..what do I have to loose. (How little did I know)
So, she slaps on the bleach ( I had not colored my hair in 4 months). Leaves it on for the alloted 50 mins...rinses and says...gee your tips are still a little orange, I am going to coat and leave on another 20 mins. OK...I am having no burning or any other type of issue.
Well we rinse after 20 mins and she is estatic. Color is perfect...then I hear OH NO. I open my eyes under the running water....only to find.........HAIR and lots of it in the sink drain.
HOLY COW...my hair is breaking off. And I mean BREAKING OFF.
She starts to cry (she is 25), my husband just stares (he always told me he would love me even if I was bald)...I calmly ask my husband to get me a comb and I start...It is really bad. I am in shock, daughter is still crying (they all know how I feel about my hair).
By the time I am done...I look like Friar Tuck from Robin Hood! I am still pretty calm (which suprises everyone) call my hairdresser and just by the grace of god she is still there at 5:)) on a Sat. night.
Zip over there...not a heck of alot we can do. Buzz & cut. By the time we are done...I am left with about 3/8" of gorgeous baby chick like fuzz.
Lord help...I have yet to holler or scream. However, it is pretty bad when your hairdresser hands you a wig book.
Not sure what I am going to do....This weekend coming we have a huge car show our club puts on that I have to work and in 4 weeks we are headed with our old cars to Panama City Beach for a 5 day show...They are gonna think my poor sweet husband is holding hands with a guy!!!!!!!!
