Since the last post, I cut my hair AGAIN. It was the textbook “feeling restless in my life, maybe a severe haircut will help!”

Never a good idea. (I know better, too.)

I was fine for about a week. In shock, but fine. Then a deep sadness set in and every time I looked in the mirror, I hated what I saw.

I loathe it.


It’s a cute enough cut. Shaggy. Edgy. I just hate it on me. I haven’t felt this ugly in probably 10 years. I don’t feel femme or pretty. Plus, I have to DO it, otherwise it’s very mullety/barn animal got a hold of my hair and chewed for hours – ish.


It’s just hair. It will grow back. It looks fine. Blah blah blah.

Magical hair growing advice welcome.

Per the article in Vogue, scalp massage and stimulation. The Donkey Chew always sounds good in theory. Very sexy. Sorry you are hating it. I think you're beautiful.

Doh! I just posted a comment and now it's gone.
Either way, you're beautiful!

Restless, been there, explains an ill-fated decision to spend a month as a red head (think Lucille Ball, not Debra Messing).

You look fabulous, with any hair, btw!
