The nape of my neck has secrets

Day 8: Thick and luxurious, if 'they' only knew!

Day 8: Someone asked me today, “So how greasy IS your hair?”.  The emphasis was on the IS as though this is some big secret I wouldn’t share like my weight or how much money I make. Now, before I answer the question take another look at that picture. 

Does that hair look greasy?  Does it look dirty?  Does it look like I ignored it all day, left the house with it soaked at the nape with sweat and oil?  Does that hair in any way say anything other than Fabulous?


But the answer to all those questions is “Yes!”.  If you don’t think that by Day 8 you won’t be questioning your sanity you’re wrong.  By this time it’s not unusual for me to flirt with the idea of throwing in the towel and washing my hair.  But I never do.  You know why?

Because it takes too long.
Because my hair will ultimately look worse.
Because nobody really cares what my hair looks like anyway.
Because one day of bad hair is worth many days of good hair.
Because this is my lifestyle baby and I like it!

That hair up there in that picture?  It is so heavy with “natural oils” that it feels wet.  Gross huh?  Take another look at the picture.  Do I care?  No.  And today was an exercise day so it was also sweaty.  Do you know what you get when you mix sweat with eight days of “natural oils”?  Thicker hair.

And that’s why my hair was super great today!

I’ve got your back

Day 5: I've got your backIsn’t this fabulous?  I don’t know what to say.  (Well I do know what to say but I don’t know how to say it without bragging).  The Hair Care Girl lifestyle is full of surprises.  Today was a good hair day. I could have sworn today was going to be a ponytail day.  I had no time to  devote to my hair  plus it was rainy, rainy, rainy today.  But look what happened!

I’ve learned that I can’t get attached to what I want my hair to look like.  It is what it is, and it’s always changing.  Today is Day 5.  Day 4 is missing because I worked from home yesterday and didn’t get out of my sweats.  Which means I also didn’t get out of my scrunchie.  And I went running in the rain.   This was yesterday.  Today is the result of utter hair care laziness.  I think the pay off was totally worth it.
