Every winter has its spring. And every problem has its solution. For example, if you are foolish enough to put product in your hair and then cover it snugly with a scarf and make a 30-minute slog to the bus stop in 15F weather, and arrive at work to discover that you now suffer from the worst hat head in the universe, and that both comb and brush are inexplicably, horrifyingly absent from your handbag…
You can always comb your hair with a plastic fork.
Ha, that’s about the only use for the damn things! I can’t eat with them! I’ve just resigned myself to the fact that I’m going to be having bad hair days until around May 😉
Well, at least you have long hair. With short hair, the BHDs can be extreme!
The fringe can be a problem though!
You are cracking me up LM. Where is the photo of the ‘worst hat head’?
Well, so far I have not “outed” myself. I would rather my students and colleagues not know about Linnet and her naughty books 🙂
Totally get that LM…I can stick with imagining hair combed with a plastic fork. Wild.
It works surprisingly well!
For hat hair you could try taking a small water spritzer a small towel to your work. Lightly spritz your hair and fluff dry it with the towel. It works pretty well if your hair is short enough.
That’s an idea! And I think it will help if I stay off the hair products until I get to work 🙂
Haha…my hair would break the fork. But I have learned a trick for combs and I suppose a fork would serve this purpose as well: I keep one in my hiking pack in case I need to extricate a piece of jumping cholla from my person.
Smart move on keeping your identity from your students. You’d have a whole crowd of guys coming to your office hours with expectant smirks on their faces.
LOL. If it would get them to actually crack a book, it might be worth while!
In Beauty School, they taught us whenever all else fails, and there’s nothing near to hand, use your HANDS! Your fingers are a natural comb.
Yes, but the product was my downfall. I needed something to break through the clumps. The fork was surprisingly useful 🙂 I’m just glad it wasn’t a spork!
Just imagine what you could have achieved with an egg whisk…!
That would have broken up the clumps…

Every problem has a solution … What a positive thought 🙂
It would have to be a pretty sturdy one for my rats nest. 😉
Yes, I failed to take other hair textures into account!
I exaggerate. 😉 Mine is just a bit kinky sometimes, that’s all. In a pinch, that might actually help. I am just seriously lazy about the hair.
I vote next time you keep your hat on, dim the lights, and introduce your students to the Life of Brian. After class, the youngins will think you the most favorable prof they have, and likely not dare to criticize your choice of head covering.
And now I can’t get the tune out of my head …
That reminds me of the time the Long Suffering Husband walked into his class and said, “I had a terrible weekend. Starting with this haircut.” It defused the situation quickly, which was imperative because the haircut was a doozy.
