Really Bad Hair Day

Oh the lessons we learn.....

Claire has been using a flat iron every day for at least 2 years. She turns it up full blast thinking that this is the most effective way to get a straight, straight mane. Last week, her hair rebelled. It has had enough of being fried. I took a good look at her and saw a mass of frizzy burned ends that had no hope of recovering. It reminded me of my 1965 Barbie doll that survived at least 7 years of my creative hair-dos. There's only one option for fried ends like that -- and it is this:

Snip, snip, snip, mingled with boo, hoo, hoo.

Claire is not happy that she now sports a bob. We came home from the hair salon and Eden said "Hey, you look just like mom!!!" That made it 100 times worse. Claire is now hiding under hats. She vows she will do this every single day until her hair grows out (which will probably be sometime around 2014.) I guess it's time to buy a hat wardrobe.

Beware of the flat iron.... this could happen to you!

Yes, you!!!

Surely you aren't talking to me. I safeguard against this exact problem by only mustering up the strength to do my hair once or twice a week.

Claire has the cutest hair ever - I would say it's worth the trouble!

Its worse when your hair is already short and there is nothing you can do. Ah, growing up is fun!
