True love doesn’t stop, even if your skin turns wrinkly and saggy, or even if your hair turns to silver-gray.
Unfortunately, the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus has brought the world nothing but chaos. It sure is saddening to see the death toll rising each and every day, but that’s just one of the devastating effects of the deadly virus.
Countries started to implement health protocols and guidelines in order to stop or at least slow down the spread of the virus. There’s home quarantines, community lockdowns, travel bans, social isolation, and much more.
Another thing is the temporary closure of some business establishments, those that cater to a large number of people on a daily basis like fast-food restaurants, bars, and even salons. When talking about the services these establishments offer, especially salon, most people resort to finding ways of getting the job done for them without going out.
We’re pretty sure you or maybe someone you know have asked a relative to probably do their nails, cut or dye their hair.
Just last year, amid all the virus scare, a 92-year-old husband happily helped dye his wife’s hair.
Hair dying is not as simple as it looks, especially if you don’t know the basics of it. It gets even more difficult when your body is not as youthful as it once was, as this loving husband’s.
A decent amount of preparation goes into the hair dyeing process, including pre-washing, brushing, and ear, neck, and hairline coating, generally with something like Vaseline. Sometimes the dye needs to be mixed with a developer before application. The entire process is something taken for granted at your local barber and salon.
Chances are, Husband has little to no hair-dyeing experience. But that doesn’t mean he’s going to disappoint his spouse. Fortunately, there are revealing photographs, courtesy of their grandson, of the Israeli couple going through the process together.
All young couples out there, this is what a matured love looks like.
Without skipping a beat, the husband takes care of his wife, even if asked to do something a little out of his comfort zone. It’s likely a new experience for both of them, especially him. He controls the fate of her hair in his hands, literally. And we gotta give credit to the wife for even giving him the chance of proving his salon skills.
Although he doesn’t have all of the professional tools, he tries to make it work.
This isn’t the typical salon job. Plus, the ambiance is much homier.
A good hairstylist can do it all – even dyeing outdoors. Before the coronavirus, oh so long ago, people would walk into salons, demanding the world from their skilled stylists. Sometimes the customer wants blonde, sometimes pink… or maybe a combination of pink and orange – it doesn’t matter.
Some stylists can transform anybody’s hair into… well, anything.
But this clearly isn’t the same dyeing package applied by our Israeli couple.
Husband’s work is a little more… subtle. Although it isn’t exactly a salon, the household procedure gets the job done. That’s love – dyeing your 90-year-old spouse’s hair during a global pandemic.
Her hair turns out great!
It honestly looks completely natural, despite her inexperienced husband’s handiwork. He probably did a lot of necessary research beforehand. Maybe he has some prior experience? I mean, the man does have 90+ years of life under his belt. Who knows what little tricks he learned along the way.
Nobody knows when this pandemic will be over. In the meantime, let’s hold our loved one’s hands closer and just stay by each other’s side. More than the cure to the virus, we need this kind of story, this kind of love, it will surely help us go through all.
Who knows? One day, we will all wake up to a covid-free world. And what’s best about it is that we are all together to celebrate that much-awaited day.
