First of all, Hugs!
After my husband had a sudden cardiac death and was resuscitated I went through some strong and confusing emotions.
I at first ignored my hair, then I tore every comb and brush through my hair causing so many splits, and then finally I just hated my hair. I would look at it and just despise it. I was holding onto the 2 week rule.
But fortunately, someone here who had befriended me, listened and prayed for me - you know who you are. She suggested I buy something special for my hair. How right she was! With a new hair product to pamper myself with I once again I began to remember why I loved to take care of my hair! I remember actually sitting down and slowly, patiently, lovingly combing out my hair. What wonderful therapy it was for me. I'm once again glad I have long hair.
I would recommend the 2 week rule, getting something special (a new hair toy or product to try), and use your hair routine to soothe away the stress. You may not be able to control things around you, but you can take care of your hair.
