By the time I was eight, I was getting Toni Home Perms, which turned my hair into a frizzy mess. Didn’t stop me, though—I did keep trying. Don’t worry, it’s not my portrait to the left!
I was very amused when I woke up with this hairdo one day several years ago, and I made it my Facebook image for quite a while.
On the Colorado River raft trip through the Grand Canyon, I staggered into the “kitchen” from my sleeping bag for my wake-up cup of coffee. The guides started hooting when they saw this hair, eventually deciding it looked like the wave in Horn Creek Rapid!
