Have you ever noticed that once you've scheduled a desperately needed haircut, the unruly hair all of a sudden becomes perfectly behaved? The day or two before, my locks with frizzy tendencies will be smooth and the ends will flip in the exact right direction. Like it knows scissors will be taken to it soon, so maybe if it behaves they way I've wanted it to for the past 8 weeks, it can prolong the impending chop.

I've got a trip to the salon scheduled for today, and for the first time ever, my hair has adopted a "f*ck it" attitude. There's a chunk of it sticking out at a 45 degree angle exactly where it's not supposed to. And despite using a 'smoothing' shampoo and conditioner, we definitely have some frizz. Needless to say, I'm having absolutely no second thoughts about a haircut. I'm going to walk into that salon and tell my stylist to chop at will.

If my hair is going to cop a 'tude, so am I.
