My muse has left the building. He’s fed up with my lack of being able to go with his flow. He threw his banana peel at me as he slammed the door behind him. I begged him not to go but he didn’t care. He said he’d come back and check on me in few days to see if I’m ready to stop sniveling and get to work. So what did I do? I immediately got to work and made a huge decision that I’ve been hemming and hawing about for years now. I’m going blond! Yep, you heard me, that’s what I decided to do.
I got to work immediately. I watched endless you tube videos of teenage girls going from dark to platinum. I learned a bit about the trends that are going on right now too. Could be some good material in there for my WIP or even a future book but for now back to going blond. I really wanted platinum just to see what it would look like. Most of these girls all had the same exact directions and advice on how to go about it and what products to use so I figured, well, there must be something to this. So I went to Sally’s Beauty Supply.
It took me three days, two boxes of color, two bleachings, two tonings and a hair cut. What am I left with you ask? Yes, I still have hair. It held up pretty well considering the torture I put it through. But after each process I did a deep conditioning reconstructing treatment so I think that helped. That was my idea. 😉 My hair is almost white with some slight yellowish tint. No. You’re not getting pictures, use your imagination!
My hairdresser was not happy with me. I told her to shut her mouth, I thought I did a pretty good job, just cut my hair. I’ll give it a couple of weeks to heal and then I’ll do the final bleaching, until then I’ll just have to get some great new trendy hats. I’ve always wanted to do a hat thing. Maybe you’ll get pictures then.
I just want you to know, I feel refreshed and ready to get back together with my muse.
I think I hear him coming in the door. Oh, he won’t even recognize me. I can’t wait ’til he sees what I’ve done with our time apart. I hope he likes my hair.
P.S. I did get about 3,000 words on paper today. Maybe I’ll be able to use five of them if I’m lucky.
