I had a hangover* today. Thus, today I had hangover hair*. Hangover hair is my favorite type of hair style. It is the remnants of what your hair used to look like before a night out of heavy raging. Its a shaggy, chaotic version of your pre-party mane. I love it because its like a tamer version of sex hair. Sex hair is sweaty and frizzy and all over the place. Especially with my curly tresses, hangover hair works in my favor because when I sleep on my pillow at night, it presses on my curls holding them down in place. So, when I wake up in the morning I have perfectly coiffed curls with just a little hint of "I don't give a fuck."
I don't like things perfect. It pisses me off when my girlfriends are fixing their ponytails and asking me, "Is there a bump on the top?" and I'm all like, "Yeah, but who cares?" It satisfies me to see that bunch of hair that couldn't lay down straight on top of your fat head to make "The Perfect Ponytail". The perfect ponytail to me is, imperfection. And the best kind of hair is Hangover Hair.
*A hangover or delayed alcohol-induced headache describes the sum of unpleasant physiological effects following heavy consumption of alcoholic beverages. The most commonly reported characteristics of a hangover include headache, nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, lethargy, dysphoria, diarrhea and thirst. A hangover may also induce psychological symptoms including heightened feelings of depression and anxiety.
*Hair is a form of protein filament that grows through the epidermis from follicles deep within the dermis.
