Important Announcement at end of post!
Yesterday I spent the entire day relaxing, watching Netflix, painting my nails a bright colour, gave myself a facial, and wrote. I did it all so I would feel relaxed and calm today. You see I’d been worried about going out all week, the lady I was going out to see is absolutely lovely and we always had a great friendship.
I’d stopped speaking to her as she was friends with a girl I went berzerk at as I was holding a lot of anxiety in about things she had done, this is why I couldn’t sleep all weekend, although part of it is the clocks going back and messing up my sleep cycle, the majority of it was this. But her best friend and I are now on speaking terms and she reached out to me over a week ago.
I have been meaning to reach out to her for a while but I feel bad because of how my mental health ended her friendship, so when I saw her message I thought it was about time I spoke to her. She asked me if I still had short hair as so doesn’t know anyone else that is brave enough to cut there hair short.
Thankfully I got my hair chopped about eight months ago so I said I would help her, I was anxious that she was just reaching out to me for a favour, but we have spoken almost constantly since then so my mind was set at ease. When I appeared at the college I was very nervous, a ton of students where outside smoking and the building has changed so much in the past few years.
But she totally put my mind at ease with a huge smile and a big hug, we spoke for a bit before she took me to the salon side of the college, I was blown away with the little run down college I went to for a specific higher had changed so much, it totally distracted me from how anxious I was because before it hadn’t been painted since the early seventies.
When we went into the room it looked like a proper salon, they even had technology to tell you what kind of hair you had, it was busy with a lot of students and women who where also being worked on, but I made sure to hydrate as I was walking in otherwise I would have gotten rather dizzy, and I was put at ease by my old friend.
I didn’t have to wait around as I got my hair and scalp checked which made me happy because no one had ever told me that before, then we went and washed my hair which involved a scalp massage. This completely relaxed me and I felt like I was on a bed of relaxation, we were there for a while as it included a hair mask.
My hair was super soft by the time we got back to the chair, we continued chatting a lot and we spoke about all the new things we still had to catch up on. It was really enjoyable for me as when I get my hair done by my hairdresser I never get a blow-dry because my hairdresser has done my hair since I was young and she only has a certain amount of time to cut myself and my parent’s hair.
I can’t go to a salon to just get my hair blow dried because the thought scares me, so this really helped me today as I know the person that’s doing it and I got the chance to indulge a little for free. She did a fantastic job on my hair, I really like it, volume but not too much and smooth. She actually got a commendation for it so I am ever happier I helped out.
