I Want Her Hair

When I was growing up, I hated my hair.  It was too thick and curly, and I thought it made me look like a shaggy dog.  It didn’t help that my mother got me perms, which made it worse!  Why would any sane person put awful smelling chemicals into their hair?  Then there was Peggy Lipton, who was on reruns of The Mod Squad.  Her hair was thin, long, and straight — and cooperative.  I so wanted her hair!

Have you ever suffered from hair envy?  What hair horrors have you been through?


  1. I always wanted thick, wavy hair because I have straight, thin hair (though after having two kiddos my does actually wave a bit).


    • I suppose we always want what we don’t have! I’ve sometimes wondered if I had hair like Peggy Lipton’s, would I be wishing for wavy hair?
