Is there anything called a pre-midlife crisis? I already have been through a quarter-life crisis when I turned 25 and I’m nowhere near turning 50. So this has to be a pre-midlife crisis.
Maybe I’m being overdramatic. I’ll tell you how I reached here. I just had a “hair treatment” done. I am also thinking of getting my hair coloured. It’ll probably be something everyone’s getting done like red or blue or something popular (or not maybe). And maybe some mani-pedi, some facial, some spa and some massage. Just a little bit of Makeover. That’s not a cry for help right?
It’s cliché to have a mid-life crisis. People usually go for the tried and tested options like having an affair or having another kid or quitting their job and travelling the world or having a makeover. Oh wait, I guess I am going the cliché route.
I am not usually the maintain yourself type. I am a don’t care about my hair type but I think I was getting bored of the same usual hair I’ve had for more than three decades now.
People usually find Salons and getting your hair shampooed in salon very relaxing. But I don’t. I just don’t get relaxed when someone else is washing my hair. Salon trips don’t relax me. Ugghh..
Is this like a sign or anything? Does this mean I am craving a change? I don’t know really and I did not want to overthink it because it’s just a hair treatment. People usually get it done often. It’s like a Keratin treatment but a little more elaborate than that (the salon guy tried his best to explain it to me but alas).
And it is better than having an affair because I am nowhere close to being bored of my husband. And I need to clarify that because he will probably read this blog. So no affair only hair. That’s where we stop (for now).
It’ll take a few days until I know if I like my ‘renewed hair’ or not but till then I’m probably going to obsess about what this means and if I’m ageing before time.
