The Part of Me I Like Least

My hair is the thing I like the least.  I have a lot of it, so that's fine.  But it's completely white or silver (or whatever) in front.  It's like I'm ninety-two-friggin years old.  Yet I'm only half that.

Sure I dicked around with DIY men's hair color treatments.  But it fades quick and my white roots show in a couple of weeks.  So I need to reapply it often to keep it looking real.  Also, the stuff tends to look green in strong sunlight.  AND, it's filled with chemicals that might just one day tip me over the edge into the abyss of chronic illness.  In fact they even tell you to try a test application on your arm just in case you have a dangerous reaction.  Oh, and please call them if you do because you're their guinea pig.  Not tested on animals?  Well, I'm an animal!  Yo!

Anyway, Square Peg Person started me on all this belly aching.  In fact, this post started out as a comment on her latest Body-Part Wednesday post.  So if you have hair that bugs you, go over to Square-Peg Reflections and comment.  And if you have hair that you love, please tell me what drugs you take!

What a hoot! Guys do look better with some grey/white/whatever. But I'll tell you this. If you are job hunting, color that grey!! Men need to try to look younger when competing with a younger workforce for jobs. Worked for my hubby! He no longer colors the goatee but he did when he was job hunting (his hair is pretty much still black except a little on the sides -- he's 57).

Funny. On a whim (& absent of alcohol) I decided to darken up my hair... not good. Not good at all. A bottle of Pert and some peroxide was recommended... worse, much worse.

The Lord giveth with one hand and taketh away with the other. What little hair I have on my head is all grey. I however have a luxurious beard and mustache which is mostly grey with a few salt and pepper areas. I am told that I look like Santa Claus.

Maintaining the beard is the most painful process after every shower!

Sorry, I use fertilizer for my beard.

I had a beard when I was in my 20's, rummuser. I was a lot of work. I would shave parts of it to keep the neck clean shaven.

Now I have a moustache but no beard.
