About every 6 - 8 weeks I go to see Colleen, my friend and hairdresser. I get a trim and she touches up the colour. Today I got more blonde highlights for summer and I really like the look. The cut is just a teensy bit shorter than it was and I'm happy with that, too.
However, it seems that every time I get my hair done, Colleen puts in so much "product" that by the time I get home, my hair feels icky sticky and dirty. AND the worst thing is...my head is so itchy I could scream!
Usually, I try to ignore the itch and shampoo my hair the follow morning. Then it's like ... AAH ... no more itch and squeaky clean hair. I seem to be able to style my hair basically the same way Colleen does by blowdrying it and putting velcro curlers in. Then I do my makeup and when that's finished, I take out the curlers and brush it out, using a bit of hairspray to keep it in place.
I think I might be allergic to the dye she uses. Has anyone else ever had this reaction? Should I stop colouring my hair? EGAD! PLEASE DON'T SUGGEST THAT!!! Or maybe it's the brand.
HELP!!! I can't wait until morning ... I'm going to shampoo my hair now!

As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball.
