Fear of Round Brushes
I went to get my hair cut today. I go back and forth between chin length hair (sometimes shorter) and long hair. I like long hair because it requires no haircuts and it can easily be pulled into a bun or ponytail, but I have super fine hair and it looks best short. I've hit a rut I hit every two years or so when I decide I need to chop my hair off because I'm sick oh how it looks in a ponytail EVERY DAY. So I chopped it to my chin again today. Well, I didn't do any chopping, I paid someone to chop for me. And when I was sitting in the chair, contemplating my new look, I realized that I'm a bit afraid of round brushes. You know, the ones you use to blow dry your hair under or straight. It all goes back to about third grade when I had this awesome new round brush in a rainbow of pastel colors. My mom was brushing my hair under before school and the brush got ... stuck. Yep, stuck. I was late to school that day because we spent the better half of the morning trying to figure out how to get the brush out without having to cut out a huge chunk of hair. We cut out some of the bristles, but in the end we ended up having to cut out a block of hair. Luckily it was under all my other hair at the base of my neck, and it grew back. Hence my fear of the round brush... I'm still a bit hesitant when using a round brush, when having one used on me, or when using one on my daughter's hair.
