blogust the tenth: super-magical power!

Day 10 – If you could have one superpower/magical power, what would it be and why?

Hmm, I’m going to have to troubleshoot for when I don’t have enough time in the day to post the day’s challenge. Once I go back to work on Monday, I think I’ll be seriously lacking in time. I’ll get through this though! Booyah!

I know many people like to Go Large with their desire for a superpower or magical power, but I tend to stay on the simple side.

I would LOVE to have the ability to change my hair (style and colour) at will.

I know. I’d be like, the least helpful member of the X-Men.

I don’t care. I am always fussing about my hair. Even now, when I’m showing so much silver roots, I don’t know what I want to do.

I can’t decide if I want to stay all purple, with pink ends. Do I want to start going back to black with the purple & pink highlights? And as always at this time of year, I get the itch to cut it all off and go short, short, pixie cut. That always happens to be in August and September. I don’t know why. My hair is the longest it’s been in a long time right now. (which means it goes slightly past my jawbone). I don’t like it this length because it bugs me. I have to decide if I want to cut it or let it grow. I don’t know.

I don’t know what colour to keep it.

I am in constant fluctuation when it comes to my hair. Curly. Straight. Black. Pink. Purple. Red. I just can’t pick one thing and go with it. I change my hair more than anything else and it’s FUN to me. It’s hair, so I’m lucky enough that no matter what I do, I’ll be able to change it again and again if I don’t like it.

I would love to be able to change my hair with my mood. Mood hair! Long. Short. Blue! Brown! Fire!

So out of all the regular answers of flying, telekinesis, teleportation, strength… I choose the ability to change my hair at will. I always have and I always will. I won’t save the world with the powers and I suppose it’s a rather selfish power to want, but it will keep my ever chaotic brain happy and I’d have one less thing to obsess over. 😉

As for the grey and silver in my hair… I’ve had grey hair since I was 16. It wasn’t as much as I have now, but it was enough that the hair dressers would tease me. It was one of the main reasons I stopped going to hair salons and started cutting my own hair at home. I hated the hair dressers I went to. Back then you could smoke in the salon, too. So they’d be teasing me, smoking away and cutting my hair in styles I did not want because they thought they knew best. HATED THEM. It took me forever to get over my fear of hair salons. That’s one of the reasons I love my Awesome Dan at Salon Pure. He’s friendly, fun and will let me tell him what I want and if he can do something better, if what I wanted wasn’t quite right.

I’m just so undecided about my hair right now. Some days I love that it’s all purple, some days I think maybe I need to start bringing back the “normal” colours. Part of me loves living life with Jem and the Holograms hair, since I have wanted hair like this since I was 10. I am lucky enough to not have problems with this at work (thank goodness) but I just DON’T KNOW!

Just know I have to do something soon, because my roots are bugging me to no end. So is the length. ARGH!

And hence, why I would love to be magical enough to change my hair at will. It would be such a helpful power!

  • Being able to change your hair at will WOULD be really kick-ass. I can’t color my hair anymore because I have such sensitive skin, but I really wish I could. The witch in DISCOVERY OF WITCHES has that power and never uses it. Totally lame.
