Dear Meredith Grey...

Dear Meredith Grey,

Here’s the deal. You’ve got a lot of haters, but I’ve always defended you. The whining? Yeah, it’s a little annoying, but you’ve got some crazy shit going on! Scary mommy and daddy issues, for one thing. That’s got to suck. I’m sure I’d be a little angsty about that, too. And, OK, maybe you haven’t been the most discriminate when it comes to choosing men, but hey—we all have our way of dealing with things! When I’m down , for instance, I eat the entire contents of my freezer and re-watch the very special episode of Felicity where the Pink Power Ranger gets availability of the morning after pill re-instated at the student health clinic. Maybe if I’d always had so many gorgeous, dangerous men at my disposal, it would be a different story.

But, there’s one thing, one tiny issue, I’ve tried to put in the back of my mind for so long, and it just keeps pushing its way up to the front again. One small thing that I fear, if not dealt with, may harm our relationship irreparably.

Meredith, it’s your hair. It. Always. Looks. Terrible.

Look, I know that it sounds shallow, and I try not to be a superficial person. Doc died, and that was pretty sad, so maybe you couldn’t do much to it that day. Derek left you for his beautiful, charming, still-sorta-wife, and I’ll bet that was mildly depressing, too. If that happened to me, I just might skip product for a few weeks, too.

But the thing is, Meredith, your fellow colleagues are also dealing with a surprisingly inordinate amount of drama on a near-weekly basis, and their hair manages to come out of it unscathed. Izzie freaking lost Denny, her sanity, and (almost) her medical career! Yeah, she skipped makeup for awhile, and looked extra-tormented, but her hair: lovely.

But, I’m nothing if not helpful. My hair is pretty naturally terrible, and over the years, I’ve learned many tricks. A few that might help:

Blow dry hair with a round brush. Yes, it takes awhile, especially when your hair is all long or whatever. But, it’ll give your locks the added pep they so dearly need! Just let your hair get about half-dry, separate it with clips, and blow dry each section out with a round brush. Insta-volume and sleekness, Mer!

Invest in a CHI flat-iron. Yeah, OK, so you tried the round brush thing, and couldn’t get the hang of it on the first try and quit. I kind of expected that. After all, you fell in the water a few weeks ago and pretty much let yourself drown, so I couldn’t really expect you to keep at this for too long. An easy solution to sleek, straight hair: the magical CHI! Yeah, it’s a little pricey, and I know you’re on an intern’s salary or whatnot, but it’s worth the investment. Plus, we all know that Izzie probably squirreled away at least a tiny bit of that $8 mil that Denny left her. Ask her for the money. If she declines, tell her her muffins suck.

Ponytail and product. The biggest problem with your hair, Meredith, is that it’s just always kind of flat. A super-easy fix: Shower at night, and after your hair dries a bit, pull the top half up, tightly, at the crown, and fix it in a ponytail. Put a little—just a tiny, tiny bit—of mousse or gel on your roots. When you wake up in the morn, your hair should be dry, and when you take the ponytail down, you’ll have voluminous hair! Yay for pretty hair!

I know it may take a little getting used to, incorporating one or two of these tricks into your daily routine. But, you know, just put a little Snow Patrol or The Fray on in the background, and I’ll bet it’ll become second nature in no time.

Funny. Although I might suggest Meredith has many, many more pressing problems than her hair.

i happen to love meredith's hair, thank you.
she looks like a normal person, not so much the hot and voluptuous tv stars that people just long to drool over, making her more relatable and therefore more effective as an actress, and she is a wonderful actress.
if you are going to waste your time writing to a celebrity, who in fact will never read your blog or care for that matter, to tell them that their hair needs work, i suggest you start with the cases that need it the most, like... o i don't know... amy winehouse?

I googled "why does meredith grey's hair suck so much?" and this is what I got.
I love how anonymous missed your point. Writing to a celebrity? The celebrity, Ellen Pompeo, actually has fabulous hair. But for some reason, Shonda really wanted Mer's hair to friggin suck.
I'm glad that I'm not the only one bothered by this issue.
This was a very well-written post :) keep blogging, whether the people who you write the letters to are fictional or non.
