When I was small, I had a fairy-tale book with a story about a princess who was cursed with short hair. When the fairy-godmother lifted the curse, she grew long, thick tresses of hair, married her prince and lived happily ever after. This story made a great impression on me, and ever since I wished that my fine hair would transform into something more princess-like. I have since made peace with the texture and limitations of my locks, and when I got married I decided to defy convention and have short red hair instead of the cookie-cutter Disney version.
Luckily I have friends who are blessed with long, thick hair, and so I can still indulge my fantasy through them
