Arghhh!!!! I want my year long heat-free track record back, jerks!

Sigh. I knew you guys would understand:-)

I swear my hair feels drier and more angry now, even after one go with the dryer.

Use a good moisture treatment, it should be all good. I say pretend you never blow dried, your allowed on day off with that record. :) I'm sorry after all that you didn't get the job.

I am heat free, accept when I step into the car during the summer. My mini thermometer says 120 to 135!! some days :(.

I think to myself, surely this is drying my hair out as badly as blow dry. I feel terrible and then I think... screw it! This is unavoidable, I don't do anything else bad to my hair, I'm not counting it.

I think having a professional blow dry to try and try and improve your chances of getting a job is forgivable, and probably considered unavoidable by some. Don't be upset about it. And better luck next time around! :cheese::cheese:

It sucks having to make yourself fit a mould, doesn't it? Just have to keep going, and throw in a few deep moisture treatments along the way. :)

Well put. It really does. Oh how I would have loved to have shown up with a damp coconut oiled bun! Sigh. Society.

Thanks for the support guys:o

Today doesn't count as a blowdry day so you can have your record back. Things we do to get a job don't count!!

For your amusement: a friend with long hair, beard, and casual dress was getting ready to interview for a job he really wanted - psychology associate at an inpatient treatment facility. He cut his hair, shaved, and bought new clothes. The guy who interviewed him had long hair, a beard, was dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, and kicked back to put his motorcycle boots on the desk during the course of the interview. Oh my; did my friend ever feel dumb!

I blow dry twice a week or more and I do not think it damaging my hair, well at least the healthy 4 inches from the roots, LOL

It doesn't count. Those dummies! I hated it that I had to blow dry on low for a few minutes today because I only had 45 minutes to shower/ get ready for work after swimming this am. At least you had a better reason than me.

Use a good moisture conditioner and then oil your ends! You'll be ok. Sorry about not getting the job!

You know what I learned? Never do this!

My tale of woe...I was meeting the "big boss" at my office and decided I needed to look a little more professional. Long story short - horrible experience at hairdresser who razored my almost BSL to shoulder and threw in some nasty highlights.

The kicker is the appointment was canceled!!! Cut my hair for nothing! :disbelief

So moral of the story...never do anything out of the ordinary (or your comfort zone) in order to get the prize. It will just elude you even more....

But be kind to yourself...I'm sure you can condition it back to health. :)

I'm so sorry you didn't get the job :( next time you could do a French twist or chignon for the interview instead? I think polished updos might leave a better impression than perfectly blown out long hair.
