Big Hair, Don't Care

Cee F. -  - Big Hair, Don't Care

My hair. It is thick, somewhere between wavy and curly, generally frizzy and, if it had to be summed up in one word, that word could only be unruly. I have spent my whole life fighting it with moisturing treatments and flat irons and anti-humidity sprays. And none of it has ever worked. Anyone else would have just accepted their hair for the natural, prone-to-tangles, mess it was, but I'm stubborn. I never appreciated what I had, and persisted in trying to make it something else. That is, until I lost it - literally. This past fall, my hair started falling out in clumps. Whenever I combed it - which was never an easy task to begin with - I had to pull handfuls of strands out of the comb. To say that it was terrifying is an understatement. In the time it took to diagnose a severe iron deficiency as the reason for my hair loss, I helplessly watched my hairline recede and my part widen by two centimetres. Finally, it occured to me how lucky I am to have such thick hair - if I had started out with fine locks, I would have been bald by the time I started by iron supplements! So these days, my motto is big hair, don't care. I'm not going to lie, when the wind blows a chunk of curls into my mouth and they stick to my lipstick, I'm still not thrilled about it... but at least I have hair to blow around in the wind. I'm sure I can't be alone in this - are they any parts of yourself that you've struggled with but eventually accepted, flaws and all?
