How many days is up to you

Day 3:  How often do you wash your hair?

Here’s the thing.  Your hair is your business. If you wash it everyday and you like it, and it’s healthy, and it’s easy to do, then how often you wash is working for you.

The Hair Care Girl lifestyle is for those people (I’d say women but there are Hair Care Guy readers too!) who aren’t happy with the health of their hair.  Or they have other things they’d rather be doing than shampooing and fixing their hair.  Or they’re tired of the same ol’ same ol’.  These are the people I’m talking to.

The reason I bring this up is because I keep meeting readers who actually apologize that they are still washing their hair everyday!  Ohhhh, it makes me cringe when they do this.

On the other hand I also meet people who say they’ve been wanting to reduce their shampooing frequency but are scared or inhibited, or don’t know what to do if they wake up and it looks bad.  It’s these people who inspired this blog in the first place.

Let me say this… “I don’t care how often you wash your hair”.  Don’t get me wrong.  I do care that you’re happy with your hair.  I care that you know there are options.  I care that you understand, deep in your heart, that you don’t have to be a slave to your hair.  And I really care that if you read this you’re entertained, or inspired, or something… Just please, don’t read this and then feel *gasp* guilty.  You gotta find what works for you.

The Hair Care Girl lifestyle is all about options.  It’s living with luxury (time).  It’s living with choices (shampoo or not? how will I wear my hair today?).  It’s living without attachment to looking a certain way.

That’s all.  Oh, and it’s fun!

Day 3: A Place of My Own

Day 3: Just a touch up will doThis is what my hair (almost) does naturally.  This is how I like my hair!  I do love my hair straight after I get it done.  But try as I might I’m not so good at maintaining that look.  Long wavy hair is a natural fit for me.

Today’s hair (Day 3) is curly because I went on a run.  In the rain.  Then I put it up in my trusty scrunchy (scrunchie?  scrunchi?) for a bit.  When I took that scrunchy out it was already wavy.  All I did was use a large barreled curling iron on the ends in the back to get them going in the same direction. It turned out great with just a smidge of effort.

One of the biggest misconceptions of the Hair Care Girl lifestyle is that people think they won’t have to do anything to their hair.  I have never said this.  I just said you aren’t going to wash your hair.  The goal is to reduce the damage of stripping your hair through over washing and then making it worse with excessive heat (a.k.a. your blow dryer).

But here’s what I’m really thinking, “Who knew I had so much to say about my hair?”

“I did”, says Hair Care Girl’s Hubby.

So you can see why this blog is a good idea.  I have a lot to say and Hair Care Girl’s Hubby someone is tired of listening to me.

Total time from shower to shoes: 30 minutes

P.S.  I’m thinking about putting scrunchies on my product list.  I’ll get to that after I put my leg warmers away.
