I’m getting to the point where I’m tired of my hair…again. I’m thinking about cutting it off…again. Those that know me know that around the time my hair gets to about the length of my armpits, I go for a really short hair cut. I’m not sure why this is. I guess I like drastic change, even though very few guys like short hair.
Personally, I don’t think a woman needs long hair to be feminine. I also think that long hair is often tied to vanity. In Korea (and other countries), I feel like long hair is just pressure to fit in with the social norms. For some reason I feel something crying out to be different. Of course…I already am different and stand out as a non-Korean in Korea. However, I wear their clothes, my hair is the same color is theirs, I’m short like…most of them, and the list continues. Am I feeling myself being pulled into the this conformist society and am continuing to allow my hair to grow? Or is it sheer laziness on my part? (Party yes.)
To be 100% honest, here are some little known facts about me and my hair.
- I don’t wash my hair everyday…and you SHOULDN’T…it’s so bad for your hair. Tap water is filled with metals and a lot of people lose hair thickness while living in Korea…I guess it’s even harsher here. So, I wash my hair about twice a week.
- I rarely style my hair. I might do this once a week…or every other week…or once a month. *shrug*
- I don’t brush my hair…nor do I comb it. What!? *gasp* I know. *shrug* I occasionally run my fingers through my hair, if that helps put your mind at ease. Conditioner takes out pretty much all the tangles. It looks fine…most of my friends are surprised to learn that I don’t brush my hair. haha. I have a comb in the bathroom that I might use during my shower (when I wash my hair)…maybe…once every 2-3 months. Unless my hair is just all crazy, then I might comb it. Or just throw it in a ponytail.
- I hate blow drying my hair. #1 It’s bad for your hair: it dries it out and makes it break easier. #2 It’s a waste of electricity. #3 I find it to be a waste of time. If I can, I just wait for my hair to air dry…unfortunately that can take up to 3-6 hours depending on humidity.
So…yeah…with that….wanna help me choose which hair cut to try? Red? Yellow? or Blue? I’m in obvious need of some bangs. hahahaha
