Hair Not There - HNT

It gets in his face and tickles his nose when I turn over in bed. I hear his "pffffft"s as he tries to puff my tresses away.

It is invasive, my hair. It gets in his mouth, and mine, as we kiss. It obscures my face, and his view, when I lower my head and trail my tongue down his body. It collects crumbs, twigs and small creatures with an efficiency to rival that of my cleavage.

It takes forever to wash, longer to dry, and I never brush it. It is best to let it run wild and free, untamed by styling aids. It writhes, Medusa-like, in thick coils and breaks combs, snaps elastic bands and trashes any hair accessory that tries to encroach upon it's hairy domain.

Yet despite it's bad behaviour and unruly nature, this is the good hair, the favoured hair. The hair I lavish expensive shampoo and loving attention upon.

The hair that grows in my armpits, upon my legs and nether regions is not given such tender treatment. Body hair merits some soap and water, if it's lucky. If it's unlucky it gets razored off, torn out by the roots or burnt away with chemicals. Such harsh treatment, just for being different, for growing slightly shorter and coarser and in unfashionable places.

It doesn't go meekly, though. There are little pockets of resistance. There are the ingrown hairs with their peaceful protests, pissing me off with their "hell no, we won't go" until I have to have them forcibly removed. Then there are the hairy ghettos that spring up in the most inaccessible regions. It is a constant battle.

Maybe one day I will learn to overcome my body hair prejudice and let it grow. A new era of peace will dawn and I will stop waging an unwinnable war and embrace the Chewbacca look....

I've recently had my waist length blonde hair cut to the shoulder and choppy layered and love it.

A lot of the thinking behind the radical change was that I used it to hide behind, including during blow jobs :)

Curvaceous Dee said...

Oh, but you do have beautiful hair - lovely and thick :)

And that's a very pretty shoulder, as well!

HHNT, xx Dee

Walker said...

Then we can call you Chewie. :)

I cut off a little over two feet of curls and broke weight watchers records for the week.

You can now see the muscles on the back of my neck bulging from the years or carrying the mop from the shower and waiting the two hours for it to dry.

The worse part was evicting the family of squrrels that were living there.
The rather unjoyed the hours of pink floyd flowing from the speakers and the scent of acapolco gold in the air.

Personally I like long hair and whats a little hair in the the mouth when you're having fun ;)

Helga Hansen said...

Oh wow!! There I was, slaving over my first HNT piece last night, and didn't post it, because it wasn't yet Thursday. So I jumped out of bed this morning, whacked the piece on, and then went and got dressed for work. Now I start exploring... to see you have done a hairy HNT too!! Great mind? Or fools? ~Don't feel you have to answer that - I prefer to be deluded!!~

You have lovely hair... I always did like curly hair... but that is possibly because mine is dead-straight and a nightmare to get decent curls out of!!

Happy HNT!

"A new era of peace will dawn and I will stop waging an unwinnable war and embrace the Chewbacca look...."

That cracked me up for some reason, lol. The mental image of me with a lot of body hair probably is what caused that.

I doubt I'll ever overcome my body hair prejudice. ;)

Great post and lovely picture of your pretty hair. Happy HNT!

bittersweet said...

Beautiful hair, and a lovely, strokeable line of skin too.

I like having wild curly hair - it seems to have taken on a personality of its' own.

Luka said...

Angela-la-la - It is liberating when you cut your hair, isn't it? I've chopped mine off numerous times, but it grows back so fast I don't really feel I get my m oney's worth.

Curvaceous Dee - If my hair reflects my personality then I could do worse than "lovely and thick" :) x

Walker - wow, I have squirrel envy. Yes, there's nothing quite like hair, and lots of it, for swinging about during sex or rock music.

Helga - given the number of body parts we each have to expose, there will always be a risk of duplication :) I think hair is a lovely one for HNT as it conceals as much as it reveals, is sensuous but not explicit and it easier to photograph than my own backside. Yours is lovely (your hair, I haven't seen your backside...yet).

Amorous Rocker - I think if body hair was given the same luxurious treatment as head hair, it might well have the glossy look of Chewbacca. I am willing to give it a try, in the interests of science.

Bittersweet Me - wild hair has definite advantages. I could never have the patience to sit still while I blow dried or straightened it.

nursemyra said...

all the women in my family have long thick hair and we all depilate our legs though I let my armpit hair grown a little. I kind of like some armpit hair - not a lot, just enough to trap a few pheromones.

the best lover I ever had was a very hairy man. if you'd told me when I was 20 or 30 that I'd fall for a man with a hairy back I would have been repulsed. when did this preference for hairless bodies take over from being natural? do you think it's mainly a western culture thing?

Z Mascota said...

the luckiests girls among us (me, too!) have wild curly hair that reflects our wild sexuality...i'm the same way with my locks...never ever brush it!
HHNT!

Luka said...

Nurse Myra - that's a very good question. I think much of it is to do with our current sanitised ideals of bodies. We are all taught to feel shame about natural processes like menstruation, odours or hair. It's partly culture, mostly marketing.

Z Mascota - absolutely - leave the locks untamed, like us!

Vi said...

Go one, go for it let that hair grow. Then you can platt your pubes!

Katie :) said...

What an amazingly beautiful head of hair you have...

HHNT!

MarcelloNYC said...

Your hair is beautiful!.

I agree with Mascota - wild hair screams passion.

HHNT!

Luka said...

Vi - I think that would be a good look. I could put little diamante clips in it too.

Katie :) - hello! Thank you! It looks ok when it's not full of foliage and breakfast.

Marcellonyc - wild hair suits wild women, it's true!

Vixen said...

Beautiful!

Keyser Soze said...

Fantastic! :-) HHNT!

Luka said...

Vixen - thank you!

Keyser Soze - a man of few words, but good ones :) Thanks!

Long beautiful, wild, sexy incredible hair that falls all over me--yes! Wouldn't have it any other way. Hair like that is utterly glorious. And it looks like that is exactly what yours looks like.

Beau on the phone to a lovely with hair like that.

Biscuit said...

I love your hair. I would give anything to have wavy/curly thick hair!

Biscuit's HNT

Greg & Sheryl said...

Sheryl wishes she had the patience to maintain such a huge and impressive mane of hair.

Lapis Ruber said...

My wife would give anything to have hair that would grow long like that but every time she tried it just went frizzy and horrible (or so she thought). I was amused by the (unintentional?) juxtaposition that I first read as one sentence "when I lower my head and trail my tongue down his body. It collects crumbs, twigs and small creatures...." Happy HNT.

Luka said...

Beau - I can sense this is a subject you feel passionately about :)

Biscuit - Thank you - yours looks amazing in your HNT though!

Greg and Sheryl - the strange thing is, it takes more patience to maintain shorter hair, I find. I can neglect my mane and find it still looks ok!

Lapis Ruber - hehe, I hadn't spotted that! I rather like it, it makes it sound like I lick tramps. Which I might do.

Luka: Passionate doesn't quite cover it: mad about the girls: yours, Biscuits, the redhead next door, my long-black-haired grey-eyed lover/wife who is no more; but that's another story from a faraway place that exists only in my now and forever heartsoul.

Beau remembering

Luka said...

Beau - if you ever want to tell me that story I'd be honoured to hear it. Or anything, really, you have some a poetic way with words. I could listen for hours.

Anonymous said...

Luka--you're sweet--thank you. Let me think on it.
Beau

Luka said...

Beau - it's not often I am referred to as "sweet", (not online, anyway) so I shall take a moment to savour that.

Anonymous said...

Luka: what interest the story has is only probably in the end in its meaning to me..but, should you like to, I'll send it.

Beau

Lucia said...

I love thick, lustrous and gorgeous hair, which you have in abundance :-)

happy HNT !

Luka said...

Beau - I would be interested to read it, so, if you wish, I have an email address on my profile page you can send it to.

Luka said...

Lucia - thank you very much! In abundance kind of sums me up!

Anonymous said...

In abundance? oh my yes, I say that pretty accurate. lol

Beau

Ro said...

Nice photo, Luka ... what else can I say that hasn't already been said?

Luka said...

Beau - what can I say, I am generous in every way!

Ro - you could say, "I see you have orange bedding, how quaint" or "your skin looks great, do you use Oil of Uglay or just chip fat?"

rob said...

Dreamy pic. Let the pubic hair grow! Dark pubes are beautiful.

HHNT

Luka said...

Rob - hello! Thanks. I agree, and I must add how nice it is to hear from a pubic hair fan! So many seem to want it slashed and burnt into oblivion.

Ro said...

Well, if you really want me to ... ;^)

Anonymous said...

Luka: Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow. Wherever. YES! Slash and burning just don't get it, for this man anyway. I love my nose to be in lushness. Oh my that was naughty!

Beau: dammit! I'm blushing.

Bunny said...

You do indeed have beautiful hair!

I was regretting mine earlier this week, as it fell in my face, got in our mouths, obscured his view (wink, wink), etc. But I'll just put it in a ponytail next time. ;-)

HHNT!

Luka said...

Ro - oh, those who visit the Boudoir are always encouraged to speak as they find :)

Luka said...

Beau! I can feel the heat from here!

*fans self*

Bunny - heheh - excellent idea! It's the only time I wear my hair in plaits...

naughty said...

Loved it! Very expressive and impressive!!

HHNT!

Luka said...

Naughty - hello! Thank you kindly!

Anonymous said...

Luka: you can feel the heat huh? me too--oh my yes. The Chewbacca look--roflmao! I think I'll head next door to the pub and see what I bloody well can do about "the heat". There was this redhead the other night--brainy and lovely. See y'all.

~Helga pops in and moons her not-so-small botty~

Trust me, the only Rear of the Year contest I could win would be the one that recognises Arse most likely to be confused with a small country!!

Luka said...

Beau - good luck in your endeavours!

Helga - I find that very hard to believe, given your shapely back in your HNT :)

Miss O said...

mmmMMMmmm
I feel the same about my mane,
& have found peace with the Chewie look ;)

May we link?

Miss O

I Smile 2 Much said...

Evening said...

You have beautiful hair. I am a hairdresser, that is a professional opinion :)
HHNT.

exile said...

ooooh, hair like that is just begging to be pulled

HHNT

Luka said...

Miss O - hello! The Chewie look is the next big thing, I'm telling you!

I Smile 2 Much - glad I made you smile! Thanks for the compliment!

Evening - Thank you! In that case I shall print it out and have it framed! Then I can point out that I do actually have lovely hair, despite the tangles and toast crumbs, and it's official!

Exile - be my guest, I like a bit of hair pulling.

Jackie Adshead said...

What gorgeously luxourious hair you have Luka! And an absolute delight to see, as well as the photo of you in the basque. Mmmm... I like! I know you won't pose for me, but you're very photogenic and would make an excellent sultry subject for erotic art!

Ms Robinson said...

You have lovely hair and I understand what you mean about giving in to the other hair but I wouldn't do it. Never. Nope. It is the beginning of the end. Then you will put Tesco bags on your head when it rains.

Luka said...

Jackie - Thank you! Now, how do you know I won't pose for you? :)

Ms R - I do love your way with words! You made me smile, broadly.

Jackie Adshead said...

Luka - Ok then, that might have been presumptious of me. I was basing my comment on a comment you made some months ago. In that case..... would you like to pose for me? With or without your basque? Or any other piece of clothing (or equipment!) you deem necessary ......

Luka said...

Jackie - I could be persuaded...

Jackie Adshead said...

Ok then.... er, how much persuasion do you want? Does it involve me buying you your favourite expensieve chocolates or would you just like to discuss it by email? If the latter, email me and I'll gladly chat with you about it jackieadshead@btinternet.com

Luka said...

Jackie - I shall email you, me dear! When I am compos mentis and not all silly on painkillers and champagne.

Jackie Adshead said...

I shall look forward to that very much..... (the email I mean! I never find you silly or lacking mentally).
