    That's true.. I just thought in the scheme of things letting hair grow for 3 months would not be a big issue for most. My apologies..Looking 100% presentable is not my strong suit even on a good day.

    I got my hair cut short just before the salons were closed. Went and bought 3 boxes of dye too. My hair color is growing out and I HATE how old the gray makes me look. Will color it tomorrow. I feel better when I look better. We do go for walks in the neighborhood and do "social distancing." I'm definitely not ready to look my age. It is so shocking to see people who are way younger than me that look at least 80. No thanks. Vain... probably.

    I am afraid to dye my own hair.

    When I told my sister of my plan she commented that as shelter in place progresses her neighbors seem less and less concerned with appearances. She has noticed several of them (male and female) who in the past always looked Ďput togetherí out doing things like putting the trash out for pickup wearing rumpled sweats with uncombed hair and the like. Hopefully itís just laziness and not depression.

    If your not going out or having people over no point in worrying about your appearance.

    I have been whacking on my hair since I retired so no great fear of not being able to get it trimmed for several months. Maybe a salon visit every six months for a trim but it is long and straight with bangs so easy to keep. I still get "presentable" even if I stay in - just makes me feel better. I suppose that may change if this goes on for months.

    Since I was working from home before all this Iíd already established a plan of showering and dressing every day, even though itís in casual clothes (usually shorts and a t shirt). Having to add hair styling to that routine is definitely not simple living. But for a silly project like this I suppose I will manage if it comes to that...

    The reality is that I will start getting Ďbed headí on the sides after about 3 weeks.

    I am hoping that this situation will redefine “presentable” a bit. Several of my students “came to class” in pajamas yesterday. One was curled up in a blanket on the couch and seemed so much happier than in the usual chair. OTOH, Dh has worn the same flannel shirt “to work” for three days. While I appreciate the reduction in laundry, I think maybe he needs to make more of an effort.

    I am making masks on demand, we have lots of requests from hospitals and nursing homes. However I am going to start to make some headbands too. I cut my nails short too. Nail salons and some hairdressers are open here but I’m not going. DH does his own hair with clippers. Best investment he ever made.
    I do get dressed every morning and go for a walk when the sun rises about 7 am so obviously I put clothes on, even if they are dirty. I plan what to make for dinner and check recipes with what I have in the house. Some things I know helps me not slip into depression.
