So I was posting earlier about my adventures with home highlighting kits and henna. I've had the bright red look for a month or so now, and I'm pretty happy with it. However, I have some hair loss from meds, perimenopauase, whatever, I'm not really sure. I used to be quite upset with that, but then I got more accepting, and lately the coloring adventure was making me like my hair again.

Well recently I got some photos developed, and I started obsessing about the hair loss again. My hairline looks different in the pictures, particularly on one side where the temple has receded quite a bit. I'm afraid to get out old pictures and compare, but I know it looks different. Mind you, I don't think anyone would notice this but me. I complain to my T and she says I still have more hair than most people. My hair is pretty thick and wavy. It used to be super-thick, so even with the thinning, it's still pretty thick.

But I spent some mirror time examining my hairline and comparing the good side to the thinner side, and wasn't happy. I decided to cut my bangs differently to try and camoflage the thinner side. So I gathered the bangs, twisted it together, and snipped it right below my nose.

It looks OK, but it got really pouffy. My hair is wavy enough, that the shorter it is, the bigger it gets. It reminds me of an 80s look or something. But it does hide the thin spot. Now instead of a thin spot, there's a big pouf hanging over my eye.

So I started freaking, thinking what have I done, nobody has bangs anymore, except really non-stylish women, or women like Goldie Hawn who are hiding their facelift scars.

I swear, it's tempting to just give myself a buzz cut.
