Haircut

In other news, I got my hair cut today. Had something like 20 cm cut off it, possibly more, so it's gone from bloody long (i.e. waist length) to just long (armpit length). So much hair. Growing hair and finger/toenails is the thing I do best. I'm sure I'd be better at repairing myself if it wasn't that all the protein I eat seems to be diverted into growing hair and nails.

I'm now feeling very, very disabled. My mum had to come round and do my hair because I can't go to the hairdresser, and hairdressers can't cope with me. I can't sit still for more than a couple of minutes at a time because of pain, and having to sit with my head perfectly level makes my back hurt even if it wasn't before. I move and twitch involuntarily. It hurts like hell to get my hair washed in a basin. I freak out from having my hair touched, especially by someone I don't know, even more so behind my back. I dislike having my back touched, when the person cutting your hair goes to brush off loose bits. The majority of ordinary haircare products make me wheeze unbearably, and I'm even allergic by skin contact or by inhalation to some of the hippy nonsense ones with all the ingredients clearly listed on the back. A hairdressing salon, especially one that does nails as well, is a mess of allergens that makes my eyes puff up and lungs give up within minutes.

Feeling really fucking abnormal right now, and need a cuddle or ten.

Hundred virtual hugs coming your way! I *hate* hairdressing salons and the smells therein, even if they don't actually half kill me, so I can imagine what torture it must be for you. I guess I can understand why you feel frustrated by that, though I can't for the life of me understand people who voluntarily spend hours at the hairdressers or having their nails done etc. I gave up the struggle years ago now and opted for butch styling I can do myself or with minimal help. Not that growing hair was ever one of my strong points. Mine was always thin and fine and couldn't hold a style for ten minutes.

My dad cut everyone in my family's hair when I was growing up. The first time I had someone I didn't know cut it, I did have to nerve myself up a bit; I don't like being touched by strangers, especially strangers with sharp impliments. I think I squirmed a bit.

Anyway, know you are not alone in your dislike of hairdressing salons. I remember holding my breath when I had to walk past one when I was a kid.

And *cuddles*
