Dealing With Roots is a journal entry by Samantha Greenbriar, dated October 22, 1994. She uses this entry to talk about her growing friendship with Lonnie, the catalyst for which was the dyeing of Lonnie's hair.
Lonnie brought her hair dye over today. She said, "I need to fix these roots. Think you could help?" Dyeing hair is weirdly intimate. I don't know if I've touched someone else's scalp before. That's pretty intimate, right? It felt intimate.
We looked in the mirror together after and I expected her to say something about how it looked crappy, or good or whatever. But that's when she said, "You're so beautiful." And she was looking at me. Right in that moment, I wanted to say... something. But I waited, and the moment was gone.
- This journal is found by picking up the bottle of red hair dye next to the tub in the bathroom.
