te hehehe. You all should have seen me earlier this afternoon - when I went to a hair-salon to buy a bottle of shampoo (Shu Uemura), for my sister's birthday. I asked for a certain product and the women/stylist in the salon asked if I the bottle is for me. I said no, it's for my sisiter. Why you ask?
She said that my hair is too thin and the shampoo would not work for my hair.
That's when I frowned my eyebrows. Thin hair? Excuse me? Thin?
Having just asked my hairstylist (at another hair-salon) to cut me a Cameron Diaz-short-bob, having listened to my hairstylist who told me that he can not cut the Cameron-bob with my hair, because Cameron's Hair is thin and fine and mine is strong and thick and that Cameron would love to have hair like I have. My hair, thin? Excuse ME? May we have a word ...
I started explaing the woman that I am not naturally blonde, even though my hair colour looks natural – I am a brunette! And you know what? Brunettes don't have thin hair. You really think, this is thin hair? And I started to go through my hair with my fingers.
The woman was Persian. She said "You have European thin hair".
Oh yes, then she told me how to use a conditioner properly. She could not know that I am the Queen of correct usage of any product and that no conditioner ever touches my scalp but only the lenghts.
It's during moment's like this, where I like to have Larry David on my mind - when I start defending my hair towards a women I have never seen before who is supposed to sell me something. No doubt, the other person IS usually doing the right thing in the situation, only Larry/me is too convinced of his/my belief, one ends up arguing. Mostly on luxury problems.
When I left the salon (with a bottle of shampoo which she recommended, not without thanking her for her advice), I reflected upon Shu Uemura's products, how Japanese and Chinese women have thick hair, Persian women probably, too. In the eyes of a Persian women, my hair might, just might seem a bit thin. It's a global market. I had compared my hair to other Caucasian hair, not realising that thick might be thick in terms of Chinese and Persian hair.
Have a nice weekend and in case you experience any Larry David Moments, try to find the fun in them. Makes life easier and more fun!
