It’s recently come to my attention that some people think I’m vain because I have long hair. I was really confused by this, but now I think I see why they have that impression: they think long hair is a lot of work.
Nothing could be further from the truth! I spend far, far less time on my hair now that’s it long than I ever did with short hair. Long hair is the lazy person’s ultimate time saver. It’s so easy.
Contrary to what fashion magazines will tell you, long hair does not require a bazillion products and extra time. I use a very small amount of shampoo and conditioner, despite having very thick, very long hair. In fact, I just finished up a bottle of shampoo that I bought a YEAR ago. That’s right – one bottle of shampoo lasts me a year. Does my hair look greasy or smell funky? Not at all. You just don’t need nearly the amount of shampoo that most people seem to use.
So, the question is, how can people with long hair combat the prevalent attitude that long hair is a sign of a vain person who spends an ungodly amount of time on grooming? It simply isn’t true.
