Change and a Contest

Change.  It’s hard for some of us.  It takes courage to go a different route.  To choose differently.  To trust that something new and different will be okay. I’m not talking about huge life decisions.  Buying a house, or moving to another state.  I’m not talking about quitting a job, or trying a new genre.  I’m talking our hair.

I have an appointment today with my hair dresser. And I’m already feeling antsy.  Every time I go, I think this time I’ll tell her to do something completely different.  To go a little crazy.

And then I don’t.

I have friends whose hair is different every time I see them.  Sometimes I really like it, sometimes I don’t.  But I always admire their courage.

Now, I have excuses.  I have fine hair and, therefore, the number of styles that actually look good on me are limited.  I could go short and spiky?  I just don’t see myself as a short-spiky-haired girl.

I could have it dyed a different color? Yeah . . .  No!

So I’ll go and I’ll probably ask her the same question I ask every time.  “Any recommendations?”

I know she’ll offer something, and I’ll listen and then I’ll say . . .  “Just do the regular.”

What’s wrong with me guys?

I mean, I don’t shy away from change in other areas of my life. I jump genres, I recently moved from the house I’d lived in for twenty years.  I’m not afraid to travel.  I’ll try different kinds of food.  Heck, I ate toad soup once.

But my hair?  I never venture too far from what I’ve always had.

Any hair style advice for fine hair?  Any advice on taking a leap of faith at the salon?  Are you like me, afraid of a new hair style?

CONTEST!!!

So, I have a little contest for you. Would you like to win an Ancestry DNA kit?  You know, the ones that check your DNA and tell you if your Irish, Italian, or whatever. Pre-order In Another Life and send a link or a screenshot of your order to me a christie@christie-craig.com and you’ll be entered to win an Ancestry kit. I’ll be closing this contest on March 25th.  (Sorry, but this contest is limited to U.S. residents only.)

  1. I would love a DNA kit. I have a hard time doing anything to my hair.. I want a different style, but not brave enough. I love long hair

  2. My hair is fine in texture and I found that if I use conditioner every 3rd wash it tends to help it hold style. Also if you want to try something drastic but afraid to harm actual hair there’s shampoos that “dye “ your hair colors but if you use reg shampoo it’ll start going back to normal color. A fun way to experiment with color is to get extensions and dye those. You can also then cut them to your hair length to keep the style you like but with a colorful twist
