I was a natural blonde for many years. I was proud of my hair. I may not be the most beautiful girl in the hair, but I sure did have great hair! All the girls back then wanted to touch it and had nice things to say about it. Some girls even said that I had “princess hair,” because it reminded them of the long, flowing blonde hair that many of the fairy tale characters in their childhood books had. Unfortunately, my hair has changed in recent years, so now I get natural hair extensions to help myself feel better about the way I look and present myself each day.
I never thought that I would one day look in the mirror and not feel happy about the reflection looking back at me. I guess that I was young and was simply happy with who I was. But now that I am older and am much more plain looking, the changes that have also occurred to my hair really had me feeling down in the dumps. It is true when they say that it is sometimes hard to grow old gracefully. If I could not get rid of the wrinkles on my face without doing something drastic, I knew that I could do something about my hair in a much easier way.
When I last went to get my hair cut and styled, I spied a wall full of what looked like human hair. I asked about it and was told that they were samples of hair extensions. Many women get these days, whether they are young or old. They said that I could buy them there, and I can take them home and put them in each day in just a matter of minutes. I can even come back and get new styles when I want.
