I’ve not updated you on the great hair battle for some time, this is probably because I forget about it as its always under a cap nowadays. Hair loss has slowed right down and, importantly, its not because I have run out!
Hair washing is slowing down now, I am still using the mad products but starting to allow my hair to get dirty before its washed. Those of you that know me will know that I am not a great fan of hair washing and have traditionally considered that getting my hair wet suffices.
I have a way to go but I do believe I am starting to edge back into man world, I am starting to edge away from the mad hair products isle. Now ladies its been a blast, hell it may even have been educational and I thank you for your support, your advice and for opening the door to your mad world, even if it was just a crack.
I have tried to engage with your bojo berries, your pre conditioner, plant essences, syrups and serums but I am afraid I’m just not equipped for those aisles in the chemist. There’s no logic to the potions, the colour code used on the bottles is meaningless and serves only to confuse, it really is all some sort of weird alternative language.
I thought that as an Engineer who understands the complexities of the world around us I could decode the thousands of products available for hair care, or at least find a path through it. The truth is that I am no wiser, no less challenged by the hair product isle than I was before the accident. I don’t slowly browse the aisle in the chemists like the girls whose natural environment it is, I still charge in select the product I want and exit without pause. Its not just because of the funny looks from the security guard that I treat shampoo purchase like a ram raid I am genuinely intimidated by the rows and rows of products, this from a man that is happy ordering food from a menu in a foreign language that he doesn’t understand.
You can keep your hair care regimes, your scary product isle and the unintelligible language that you have developed to explain this madness, I shall back slowly towards the door clasping a bottle of shower gel.
