My Hair Is Not Inherently Good

It's been 10 days since I washed my hair

The other day I was out with a group of friends and we started talking about the Hair Care Girl Lifestyle.  And I heard comments like:

“I tried not washing my hair but it looked terrible.”

“You know, my hair just can’t do it, it’s too (curly, straight, greasy, thin, thick).”

“You’re lucky, you have good hair for this.”

“You have such great hair, I could never do it, it’s too hard.”

Ladies!  Ladies!!!!  This just is not true!  I do not have inherently “good hair”.  In fact, to prove it I’m going to show a picture of my hair with absolutely nothing done to it.  In the picture below I was camping and had washed my hair with cheap shampoo/conditioner.  I was camping so I also used no product and no hair dryer.  Nothing.  Just shampoo, conditioner, and the sun to dry it.  And this is what it looks like au ‘natural:

Not so good, huh?  You see my hair is FRIZZY.  My hair has COWLICKS.

The reason the Hair Care Girl Lifestyle works for me is because I had to learn about my hair.  I had to learn what to do when it has weird kinks or my cowlick makes me look bald.  I had to learn what to do when it looks greasy and when it looks dry.  I had to learn how to wear it up all different ways beyond just a pony tail.  Basically I learned how to get really creative with my hair.  And this leaves me with so many options everyday I never stress about it.

Not everyday is a fantastic hair day but everyday is a good hair day.  Why? Because now I have tons of ways to wear my hair and I’m not attached to it looking any particular way.  Which is the essence of living the Hair Care Girl lifestyle…easy!

Bad Hair: In the beginning

My hair stylist told me… “Hair Care Girl, you should really stop washing your hair everyday”.

And I’m like, “Whaaaa??? No way!  Do you know how sweaty I get?  I mean, I work out!”

So my hair gal says, “Okay”.

…But I left that appointment thinking “What if?…”

This is the story of how my “what if” turned into a “how to” turned into a blog, because guess what?

People want to know!  How in the world do I have such gorgeous hair and not wash it?

I mean, isn’t that GROSS?
