I feel like writing a blog post today, but to be honest, I don’t have anything to say.
That didn’t used to be a problem back when the weekly photo challenge was still running. I’d just look up the week’s theme and post a photo. Perfect for wanna-blog-nothing-to-say days.
I liked the layout of the challenge page, too, which made it easy to check out other participants.
Something from yesterday springs to mind:
Hairdresser 1: Hi there! I hope you’re not allergic to dogs! (pets two dogs with wiggly tails)
Me: Umm, actually I am… (surprised to see animals at a hairdressing salon in Helsinki)
Hairdresser 1: Oh, no problem, let me lead them into the other room here! I’ll be right back!
Hairdresser 2: The dogs are mentioned on our website. You should’ve looked it up.
Me: Oh, I didn’t notice… (not feeling very welcome anymore)
Luckily Hairdresser 1 was so nice that she neutralized any initial bad vibes. I was trying out an eco hairdresser for the first time: fed up with chemicals, it’s been years since I last dyed or highlighted my hair.
But Hairdresser 1 told me even eco products can give you an allergic reaction, if you are allergic to for example pollen or if you’ve previously had a bad reaction to normal hair dye. I am and I have, unfortunately, and – though unlikely – I wasn’t in the mood for any risk-taking. So I decided to skip the dye.
Instead, she did a seaweed and tea tree cleansing mask accompanied with a head massage and coconut oil for moisture. And she clipped my hair a bit shorter.
When it was time to pay, I wondered if it would be less expensive since I didn’t get my hair dyed. On the other hand, I did use up 2 hours of her time. I ended up paying 130 euros… for basically a haircut.
