I have had a problem with my hair for a very long time. I like to have it short and spikey. However, since I was diagnosed with sleep apnea about 10 years ago, the headgear I have to wear messes with my hair. My hair is very coarse and really has a mind of its own. My latest problem is a line of flattened hair in the middle of my head. Nothing will make this hair stand up like the rest of it. Given that I have struggled with this for 10 years, I decided it was time to do something about it after I had purchased every single hair care product and unless they are coming out with and instant dry steel like substance nothing is going to change.
The only solution is to grow it out. Knowing that there will be several awkward stages along the way, including right now, hats seemed like a good solution. I have never worn a hat, ever. I have never looked good in hats, or so I thought. Deb and I went hat shopping and we found 5 hats. I got a couple of fedoras and a cloche hat. I am not sure what the others are however Deb probably knows.
Having never worn a hat in public it took me a couple of weeks to work up the courage. On Sunday, I decided to try out wearing a hat. It went ok so on Tuesday I wore one to work. Most people like the hat and complimented me on it. I kept in on all day. Later I happened to take the hat off in the bathroom to scratch and I noticed that my hair was flat! The line was gone. My version of hat-head is actually an improvement. Only in Shihtzustaff world! So now I just need to wear a hat for a bit and my hair is flat and looks just fine. I am going to grow my hair out as it really is time for a change.
