24 Festive Tasks: Door 8 - Penance Day, Task 3 (Bad Hair Day)

Another member of Team Unmanageable Hair here.

 

It actually started somewhat inauspiciously ...

... until age 2, I didn't have any hair at all.

 

When it did start to grow, though, it soon became clear that it was going to be a challenge to keep in check -- it's both frizzy and curly (and the curls and general frizziness multiply with the level of humidity they're exposed to).  When I was little, my mom tried the "keep it short" approach ...

... but that ultimately didn't really help, either -- the only thing it achieved was to make me profoundly hate going to the hairdresser's (to this day, in fact).  So ever since my childhood, the struggle has been real!
