I have a dilemma…the new mom hair dilemma. A little hair background, over the years I have consistently changed my hair from blonde to brown to red, from short to long, from no bangs to all types of bangs. Let’s just say I’ve never been shy about changing my look. Maybe I’m just having a bad hair week. I’ve been blonde or a version of blonde for the past couple of years and I love being blonde, but my roots are out of control. The worst part is I don’t have time to get them done. My bff Leslie offered to watch Maggie yesterday so I could go to the Salon, but Maggie has had a cold and I ended up having to take her to the doctor instead. No complaints here, I’d rather hear the doctor say “Her lungs look great”. Than my stylist say ” You look tired…the highlights will help”.
One thing is for certain, I understand why so many moms just dye their hair darker again. They don’t have the time to go to the Salon. Last year my neighbor Heather darkened her hair and mentioned that I would too. At that time, I didn’t know what to say to this. I was pregnant and already nervous about my life changing. I remember this sending me into a mini panic attack, I was about to lose control over my hair! Sounds silly, but for years I felt the need to have my career delegate my look. No more. I want my hair power back.
I might be a new mom, but I’m in control of my own hair destiny. I’ve had plenty of bad hair colors, styles etc… Now it is time for some fun. I’m keeping my blonde hair and I’m going to add some funkiness to it. I don’t care if I have roots occasionally, Maggie delegates the rest of my life (I’m actually totally fine with it) there’s no way I’m going to let her delegate my hair style (unless it gets too hard to upkeep)
I will not succumb to new mom hair! If I do anything for myself this year, I will keep my hair sexy! Okay, my hair hasn’t been sexy since 2000 when I was rocking the Betty Page look, but dammit it’ll be sexy again.
Take that new mom hair!!!
PS… I’m slightly worried Maggie won’t recognize me if I do something too drastic, so I’m probably just getting highlights.
