I only wash my hair once a week.
Whether it needs it or not.
For a long time I washed my hair every couple of days, battling with the dryer and the straightener, and pretty much using precious hours that I could be sleeping or watching The Real Housewives of All The Places.
Or stalking ex boyfriends on the internet.
I still haven’t found any. They probably don’t have wifi in old peoples homes.
In summer I would have to take a shower AGAIN after beating my hair into submission, only to have it spring back to frizz with the slightest hint of moisture in the air.
Fuck that noise.
Back in 2009 when I sustained my first broken shoulder darlink, I managed to push it to 3 days maybe 4 if I wasn’t going anywhere. Just washing and straightening my fringe if it got especially manky.
Fast forward 4 years and I am fucking ECSTATIC that I am only washing it every Sunday morning.
Every Sunday I have my ritualistic ablutions:
Wash my hair.
Deforestation from my eyebrows to my left big toe (what the actual fuck is with the hairy toe, body?)
Moisturise from my forehead to my now hairless toes.
Only giving my hair it a spritz of water and a scrunch if I am wearing it curly, or a dousing of dry shampoo (OMG HOW MUCH I LOVE THAT SHIT) if straight, until the following weekend.
It is fucking awesome.
And my shoulders are pretty damn happy about it too.
So, tell me, how many times a week do you wash your hair?
And do you have a hairy left toe?
