In Part 1 I talked about middle-aged ladies who envied me of curly hair.
True, thanks to my naturally curly hair, I spent little money on hair salon.
More exactly, I couldn’t. I don’t know all hair salons in Japan but a few where I went to told me “We can not cut curly hair like yours”…
How did you feel?
I just thought I had such special hair or difficult hair…
But when I was in college, my mom recommended one salon. She told the hairstylist that my hair was a difficult curly one. But he said “No problem! Come to my salon!”
I was excited. The professional hairstylist cut my hair!
Since then, I had cut my hair by myself. (When I was little, dad took me to the barber and asked to cut my hair, and his.)
Anyway, I went to the salon! And came back with straight hair!
Did you ask to apply straight perm?
Maybe no… I don’t remember about that time in the salon well…
I wasn’t used to going to a salon and just answered the stylist “Yes…OK… yes” though understood nothing in tension.
But, well, it was a good experience to have straight hair once.
How was it?
My friends in college said it suited me, but… I felt something like physical discomfort.
Curly hair is like spring. It’s like having many springs on your head. They spring every time I moved my head so I always suppose those reactions.
But in straight-hair-time, those hair reactions became so weak, though I unconsciously moved too strong.
Especially in the morning when I got up… although “straight hair morning” was once my dream.
Moreover, spring-like curly hair grew and I got to have CORKSCREWS on my head!
After that, I haven’t been to any hair salon and cut my hair by myself…
I see… open a wine bottle and let’s drink…
