So here I am with my daughter. I love everything about her and can pretty much do everything needed for her upkeep. Everything except her hair.
If you notice if you go back through our blog, her hair is usually in her eyes. That’s all me. Truth be told, I used to have long hair in my late teens, early 20’s as I lived my rocker lifestyle. I like to think I had great hair.
But the problem is I haven’t had hair since I started shaving my head close to 20 years ago. The idea when I started was no maintenance. Didn’t have to pay to get a hair cut, didn’t have to buy shampoo or conditioner. Didn’t have to buy a hair brush or comb. It was a great plan at the time.
Then our daughters hair started growing and I realize, I have no clue how to do anything with it.
Me and my wife both have full time schedules. I work two long day shifts on the weekend, one overnight Monday into Tuesday and am home all week for the most part. My wife works during the week Monday through Friday so rest assured, our daughters hair is a mess 5 days out of the week.
It truly drives me crazy to see her hair in her eyes throughout tue day. I have tried but for one, her hair is thin so clips seem to slip right out. Couple that with the fact that she fights me when I even try to work on her hair. It’s as if she knows I don’t have a clue because I have no hair of my own to style.
So I’ve been surfing the web, YouTube and notice that some of those resources make it seem so easy. Not the case for me. None of it seems to pan out.
Maybe it’s just me though. My wife will tell you, I don’t get frustrated at much. Not being able to figure out how to do her hair is the one thing that drives me crazy internally.
When we go out, I’ll brush her hair back but it always ends up back in her eyes. Sometimes I wonder if people look at me and say that guy doesn’t take good care of his daughter.
That may sound silly but I am willing to bet there are other guys out there who may feel the same.
In the meantime all I can do is keep trying and hope I get it one day. I know I will get better with her hair but it won’t happen overnight.
