I tried to get my husband to put my hair in a ponytail the other day cos my hands were feeling particularly crappy. He was rubbish at it. I do have trouble with my own hair, like Tina, I have lots of it. Plus I have an aversion to hairdressers. The last time I had it cut (about 8 months ago, had about 2 inches cut off) I absolutely hated it. It was even worse than before it was cut. So I’m starting to worry about how to tie my own hair back if my hands get much worse! Think I’ll have to go with my OH to the barbers and get a number 2 buzz cut each month!
I was actually remembering earlier what it was like when I was a little girl, with mental curly hair. If it wasn’t tamed and properly brushed, the other kids used to say I looked like a tramp. I suspect this happened only once but in my memory it was often. But it was the 1970s, before conditioner was invented, never mind all the products I have piled up in my bathroom cabinet for curly frizz prone hair.
I reckon Tinas’ suggestion about them doing their own is a good one, if they’re old enough (or each others?). Or Alison’s about Alice bands, depending on what’s allowed at school. Otherwise, are there any easier ways to fix hair in place? Maybe have a good look round Claire’s Accessories? There might be some scrunchy type things that are easier for weak hands.
Or persuade them that short hair is really cool!!
