Definition from Merrian-Webster is that trepidation is a nervous or fearfil feelin of uncertain agitation or apprehension.

So I have a bit of trepidation about getting my hair cut unexpectedly tonight. Each of us has our vices, our vanity about something. Mine is my hair. I've always loved my hair. Long, blond and healthy. Only lately it's not been so healthy. I recently noticed that something was amiss about my hair. The left side seemed to be getting thinner and shorter than the right side. I didn't really pinpoint it until this morning while talking to a co-worker and playing with my hair. We both noticed when I parted it in the back and let the sides hang down in front, the left side was definitely a lot shorter and thinner. The another co-worker noticed it looked even worse from the back, almost as if someone had hacked or sheared it on that side of my head in places. (I have no kids so it is either the husband or gremlins and the husband loves my long hair.) Last time it was cut was in September/October, so it's not the stylist's fault.

Actually I may just have to blame myself. emoticon Last year I got a perm and that was great for a while. Then the last few months I've wanted it back to being straight, so I've been trying to blow dry it straight and I use a hair dryer with a little brush attachment and I've been using a flat iron. These things have been harsher on my hair than in the past, and I think I've just been slowly losing hair and not noticing. Yes, I see some on the floor all the time, but not clumps.

So in order to "fix" this, I don't see any other option than to get it cut evenly across. This could be a good 6-9 inches of hair gone...... emoticon But, because I do have an impatient side and can't stand the way it feels and looks, I will be heading to Great Clips tonight after getting my nails done to have it chopped. No salon because I don't want to wait for an opening. So I have some trepidation on that hair cut and how it will turn out. I know it's only hair, but it's been my pride and joy for a long time.

    Foods and certain nutrition (and lack thereof) can be a factor in the health of our hair also. emoticon

    Since it's a straight cut, so to speak, you should be fine. How crazy that your hair is reacting this way. I hope you can find peace of mind in the short-term, and answers or a solution in the long run.
