Hair Today?

“I'm lovin' the 80s ~ Week 4 of April!!"

Alright, I know you're looking at this and wondering "What the...?"

Well, in my younger days I had a gorgeous, thick, mane of dark brown hair, Very full, heavy and luxurious. My crowning glory so to speak. I have since lost approximately 60% of the volume of my hair, and it is thin and lifeless unless it has a lot of help, but that's not what this is about.

Back then, my hair was so think, that I could wrap it around a finger, hold it for a bit, then spray a bit of AquaNet on it and voila! Instant ring curls. Likewise for small tiny braids, and I never needed to spend the money on a perm, and I could get the "big hair" look whenever I wanted, which was usually only on roller skating nights at the rink.

So here's me, braiding my hair into tiny little cornrows, getting ready to go roller skating that evening. Anyone else ever spend and hour and a half just on their hair?

Goofy picture, I know, but at least I finally found one without a guy in it.

    Yay to great hair! Isn't it amazing how with age our hair makes that change along with everything else? I too, used to have great was pin straight and so shiny. When I got pregnant with my daughter, it turned wavy and awful. Anyhoo, I love the pic...way to earn those points, my friend!

    What a lucky girl! I tried and tried for years to get some volume into my hair, but it was so fine it wouldn't even hold a perm for long! If I used a curling iron on the whole head of it when I had long hair, it took an hour and a half, easy. Cute pic, Tracy! :)

    Ha! That is soooo awesome!! Yes, I've spent an hour and a half on just my hair on more than one occasion, especially back in the day. Today? Wash and wear, Baby...I don't even use a hair dryer (sorry June!)! Even today I'm all about Big Hair simply because I have no choice...Love the pic!!!
