So angry at my mother, I stripped my hair almost white


September 19, 1964,Saturday. Stripped my hair

Slept until 2:00 in the afternoon. Mommy was in the worst mood. She wouldn’t let us leave the house and we got in a big fight. I told her off again and started crying. Plus my cold was twice as bad. Nobody recognizes my voice. I didn’t get to buy Dianne Block a present for her Birthday tomorrow. Don’t know what I’ll do. Then, tonight I was supposed to go to a bunch of parties with Sandy, Dianne and Pearl, but Mom still wouldn’t let me out. I almost hated her, but she doesn’t feel food either. So, tonight I made my sister Donna an invitation to the Saffron Tea, then I stripped my hair, but it’s so light now, I wish I hadn’t done it, it’s kind of yellow. Oh well, I’ll see how it looks tomorrow in the daylight.
