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!

Just call me Ms. Weaver


I had my hair done today.  This was such a treat because it has been H.O.T. and I had been feeling really uninspired by my wardrobe, my house, my to-do list, and pretty much anything requiring effort.

A few weeks ago my Hair Care Gal moved salons which is great for me because she’s closer to me now and on the way to Winco.  Since she’s close to the store and I was there on a Sunday I figured I’d just head on over and do my grocery shopping when I was done with my hair.  (Isn’t this what you do when you get your hair done?  Wait, did you say no??  Did you say you go out with friends, have a drink, or show it off?  Oh.  Okay.  Well, same thing, sorta.)

Anyway… my Hair Care Gal kept making comments like “Ooohhhh let’s get you all sexy for Winco”.  And I was like, “Oh yeah…LETS!” chuckling to myself since Winco is not known for it’s fashion savvy shoppers.

So there I was picking out some green beans when the produce guy turns to me and says, “Has anyone ever told you you look like Sigourney Weaver”?


I’m not sure I like the comparison as I’m not a huge fan of Ms. Weaver.  But out of all the pictures I could find online I’ll assume he’s talking about this version of her ‘cuz I don’t like how she usually looks.


After the Sigourney Weaver comment I finished my shopping and headed to the check out line.  As I pulled in the checker (male) looked up and said, “Oh!  I like your hair!  You’ve done something different!  It looks so good!  Boy, that looks GREAT!”

So I guess my hair looks good.  I’m still getting used to the dark.  After spending 40 plus years as a blonde it still takes me by surprise when I see it.  I like it, but it doesn’t feel like Me yet.

But I’m working on it.

Total time from shower to shoes: 0 (I didn’t have to do it!)

Total time saved: 60 minutes!
