Hair-Party-Name

Poxy Title, but I've done "Bit of this - Bit of that" about 6 times now!!!

Anyhoo- On Friday, I had my hair "Chemically Straightened". Sounds scary!!! I was a bit frightened, I'd wake up Sat morning, with my hair all eaten away... but thankfully it's all good. My gorgeous hubs, bought me a gift voucher from my hairdresser, specifically to have this procedure done! He nagged me all January, "Why haven't you used your voucher?" Maybe he thought I was ungrateful? No way!!! Its the best present ever - but I knew it would take 3 hours, and there's no way I was dragging 2 kids with me, and endured them trashing the joint, while I couldn't move, for 3 hours!!! So, kids back at school - off to the hairdresser I went! I'm stoked with the result! Its VERY straight. And after the hairdresser straightened with the hot tongs/iron, its beautiful smooth and sleek! I feel like I should be in a Pan.tene ad!!! I haven't washed it myself yet, but it should still be straight, even after washing, but I'll probably need to hot iron the top layers, to cut out the frizz. I was blessed with super-frizz hair. Eww. She also hacked a few layers into the back, which is awesome, my head feels so much lighter!!! The hairdresser comments (several times, per sitting) "You've got so much hair!" "I can't believe how much hair you have!" I think she charges me more, coz everything takes more time, coz I have so much damn hair!!! I couldn't have it coloured on the same day as the straightening so I'm back there in 2 weeks to have my granny-grey roots done!!!



I took a photo of myself in the mirror last night - its not great - look at the hair, not the face!!! (I don't have big white spots on me... its the flash reflection in the mirror!) It was about 1130pm, I was just about to go to bed - EXCEPT the neighbours were having a kick-a.ss party, and had their doof-doof music blasting til I phoned them at 1.15am, and asked them to turn it down!!! I think I finally fell asleep around 2. I woke up at 3.30, and thought "Ahhh... it's quiet!" I'm such an old lady, when it comes to loud music! I like MY music loud, when I feel like it. But thats it. Everyone elses music annoys me!!! I'm 34 going on 73!!!


And lastly I thought I should tell you, that every now and then you may see "four2five" comment on your blog, with my little China Angel profile pic. Its me - Its just that I tried to change my email address on my blogger profile, and it says I can't use a gmail address as a primary address... then all of a sudden it's created a separate identity under my new email address, asking me to creating a new blog?!! What the?!!! If I can't use a gmail address - why can I set up a new identity including blog etc with a gmail address?!! Stupid. Anyway, four2five is an alias for OziMum. Depending on how I'm feeling on the day!!!

(four2five = family of 4 going to family of 5... just in case your wondering why I chose four2five!!! A Mum at school said she thought it was going from a 4 year wait to a 5 year wait!!! Geeeezz... don't wish that upon me?!!!)

You look fab!

And I now have granny greys thanks to Lana. I found that the couple that I graciously accepted decided to mate and invite the rest of the family on my head. I totally understand how women get wrinkles on their forehead - they're looking at the greys!!

You look beautiful (but then again I think you always do). I think it's your inner happiness radiating out or something. It shows up in every picture.

Special K said...

Love the hair. I had to laugh though because back in the day when "big hair" was "in".. I had to pay extra for perms because I had so much hair.. LOL

Linda said...

Your hair looks great!!! I used to get my hair straightened many years ago. Now I don't need to do that anymore..It's amazing what age will do to you!!! Enjoy your new look...Linda

Janet said...

It looks great! I can't believe you had to sit still for THREE hours! That would have killed me! LOL! It looks really great!

I have super thick, curly hair and my hairdresser keeps offering to do the same procedure - just for fun. I can't imagine myself with straight hair (well, maybe I am lying - go look at the pictures I posted for my Mom's birthday - I was ironing my hair at that age!!). You look MARVELOUS!! Great new look.
Let us know how long it lasts and does it affect your hair going back to natural curls - or do you have to wait for it to grow all out?

You sure are cute at 11:30pm! I look like death warmed over at that hour! :)

I LOVE your straight look! I never heard of chemical straightening. You're right, it sounds scary!

four2five is VERY clever!

krj said...

Welcome to the Geezer Club, I too enjoy the luxury of telling my neighbors to turn it down! You look FABULOUS for 73 girl!! LOVING the hair!!

Donna & Joe said...

You look great...even at that hour! Love your new straightened style. It should be easier to care for, right? I don't have curly hair, but it's wavy enough just to be annoying. I can't go without blowing it out unless I just stick a headband in for the day. Believe me, that's what I do sometimes on the weekend.

Debz said...

Love the new look! but your pretty anyway!



ps. I'm looking for a video that I seen on someones blog not too long ago that starts out with a mother in China writing a letter to her daughter by candle light before she sends her to an orphanage....do you happen to recall seeing it? I must have lost my marbles, I've seen it a dozen times but can't seem to recall where. LOL!
