I Learned My Lesson About Cutting My Hair Too Much and Got Help As Well

Writing No Comment

After many years of not liking my hairstyle, I decided to get a drastic cut. I was unhappy with the way it looked right away. It made me unhappy every time I looked at myself in mirrors, windows as I passed by, etc. So, my stylist suggested that I try yet something else, which was to get a curly perm. I knew it would make my hair shorter, but I looked ridiculous. Desperate, I told him he had to help me fix it. He said that the best thing to do is to get curly weave extensions to make my hair longer.

After the first hair catastrophe, I made my stylist show me photos of what extensions would look like with hair that is as short as mine. I know what curly hair looks like just fine, however, I did not know anyone that had such a tight short perm like I had and whether adding hair would look good or not. Luckily, he had some other clients who had this same dilemma, and he had before and after photos. They looked fantastic. I made him promise me that he could make me look the same, and he promised. He even gave me a hug and said that he would help me out for free.

I was lucky in that he came over to my house that night after work to point out what exactly I should buy. We both sat down in front of my computer and visited a website that he knows very well. He said that their hair is human hair and fantastic quality. We went through many of the photos until we found something that looked like it matches mine perfectly. I ordered it, and then he told me to come back to his shop as soon as I received it. He was nice enough to keep his word, and he fixed me up and made me look good again on the same day that my weave arrived.

Getting Back into the Things of Normal Living

Writing No Comment

After my sister underwent chemo she lost a lot of weight and her hair. It took months for her hair to start growing back and for her to put some weight back on. She no longer looked gaunt like she did when the medication was at its peak. She is now in full remission. I know that there are joys in life that help us want to live life. My sister has always went out of her way to look good. When her hair did not grow back in full and thick, I bought her Brazilian hair bundles to have weaved in.

I was making her get back into the swing of living again. No more hospital stays, and no more sitting at home suffering from the pain, nausea and other side effects of the treatments. She was over that, but it was tough to break her out of the established routine. I got us tickets to a play she has been wanting to see, and I coaxed her to get the weave and to dress up for the evening.

I also convinced her to call a male nurse she met at the hospital. He really liked her. I could tell. She said he was just being nice because it was his job. I was right though. When she called, he asked her out right away. I suggested the play, and he was eager since he liked the theater as well. They already had a rapport and a lot of conversation under their belts from the time he cared for her in the hospital. Now he was going to see her all fixed up and looking great.

When he drove by to pick her up, his jaw hit the floor. He was amazed at how she looks now. We all went in his car. Me and my date and my sister and the nurse. We had a great time, and this broke her out of that shell. I don’t know if they will be together as time goes on, but I do know they are enjoying each other’s company right now.
