8 lies I tell myself to avoid having to wash my hair
I hate washing my hair. I can’t tell you why exactly but I’ve always hated it. Although I have long hair, I can do the whole shampoo-conditioner-hair mask-styling thing in like 3o-4o minutes but I always try to get away with not doing it for as long as humanly possible.
I have come up with all sorts of reasons for postponing it over the years… Why am I doing that? I honestly don’t know. I just absolutely hate washing my hair. But the thing is, we all feel this way… right?
Here are 8 of my most brilliant reasons not to wash my hair
1 “You can do it in the morning”
Even if I have the time to it in the evening, I must be considerate of my neighbors - turning on the hair dryer might disturb some of them. Also, if I do the whole hair-wash thing I might end up going to bed later. Of course, I’ll have plenty of time to do my hair in the morning if I don’t hit the snooze button a hundred times and end up having my breakfast on the tube as per usual.
2 “It’s not *that* greasy”
I can convince myself of that any time. Yes, you read that right. Any time. Even if my bun stays on the tops of my head without using a hair band.
3 “Some dry shampoo can save me”
I hate using dry shampoo more than actually washing my hair but a girl’s gotta do what she’s gotta do...
4 “No one can see how greasy it is if I put it up in a bun”
We all know that a bun can save us from going through the tiresome process of washing our hair - the greasier your hair is, the better the bun, am I right?
5 “It is supposed to rain”
If I do wash and style my hair, the last thing I want is to get rained on. I am not that stupid… A rainy day is the perfect excuse not to wash your hair.
6 “I *might* go to the gym tomorrow”
Even though I’m quite aware of the fact that I don’t go to the gym very often and chances are my hair will start cleaning itself before I do, I keep telling myself that. But what if I suddenly become a gym bunny? Life is full of surprises, after all.
7 “I’ll braid my hair”
As a sleek ponytail or a good bun, a braid requires you to have slightly greasy hair. Oh, the fact that braiding my hair takes longer than actually washing it obviously does not matter.
8 “I’m going out to eat”
People normally like to look presentable when going out but think about it… I mean really think about it… Do you want your hair to smell of french fries and all kinds of food? No, you don’t. See?
