wash away

It takes me at least 15 minutes to wash my hair, so it's lucky that its freakish thickness and general ungreasiness means that I only have to wash it every five days or so. Anyway, I always see washing it as a big hassle, because it takes so long and involves lots and lots of rinsing to make sure all the shampoo and conditioner is out. How about you?

I see it as a hassle only because it absolutely must be washed every day - it's very fine, very straight and generally greasy, and I look like a horrible adolescent freak if it isn't freshly washed. But actually washing it, per wash, isn't hassly. It takes ages to dry though, because it's so straight that it all sticks in one clump and needs to be prised apart with a hairdryer. If I can't be bothered with that and just put it up in a clip half-dried, it'll still be wet when I take it down ten hours later. Ick.

If I'm not pressed for time I don't mind washing my hair, as it always looks better freshly washed and dried. When I'm in a rush it's a hassle though, as the time-consuming bit is the drying afterwards, which is completely necessary because otherwise it'll dry to be a thin and frizzy mess. Meh.

I don't know what you consider long - mine goes just past my shoulders.

My sister has super-thick hair - it takes her hours to wash and dry it. She had something done called tunneling (?) where they took pieces out from closer to her scalp to make it lighter.

Mine's just above my shoulders - the longer end of short, or perhaps the shorter end of long. It'd probably go past my shoulders if I, I dunno, attached weights to the end of it, as it's kind of boingy.

I don't really mind washing my hair - it's all part of the morning gradually-waking-up-in-the-shower process (though the fact that I'm half asleep means that I do occasionally accidentally condition it twice, or emerge with one shaved leg. Not to mention the times I've got into the shower with my glasses on...). I'd probably find it more arduous if I had to do it every day - any more than every two or three days and it turns into a giant ball of frizz. And my hairdrying process just involves ensuring it's not parted sideways and that my fringe is where it's supposed to be, then letting nature take its course - again I'd probably find it more hassle if I engaged in Actual Styling.

I hate washing my hair so much I once paid for a haircut I didn't want just because I knew it would mean someone else would have to wash my hair instead of me. The thing that would make my life better would be a personal hair washer.

Individual washes aren't a hassle, cos mine's short and fine, but having to do it every freakin day from utter greasiness is annoying.

Washing my hair is never a problem, although I remember when it was longer (it's just below my shoulders right now) that it was harder to work the shampoo through and rinse it out. I don't like washing it because that means I'm going to have to deal with it after. I don't really like touching my hair when it's wet - it just feels odd - and trying to give it something resembling a style is such a pain.

Never a hassle, just because I love my hair when it's freshly washed so much. The only thing that's annoying is that I can't wash it every day, because then it would just get weird.

And! I was using Neutragena Clean Moisturising shampoo and conditioner for ages, and really liking it. Then a couple of months ago the cheapie toiletries shop didn't have any, so I've had two or three different ones whilst waiting for it to come back, and I thought they weren't as good. Then on Saturday I managed to get the Neutragena Moisturising one again, and I was right! It's just as great as I remembered! My hair's not frizzy on the day I wash it, and it's not greasy the day after I wash it! It's purrrrrfect!

I am far, far too excited about this.

I find drying my hair more of a hassle than washing it. My hair's naturally thick, but even after I get it cut and thinned out it still takes ages to dry because it just seems to absorb water really annoyingly well. I let it air-dry for an hour or so, then blow-dry and flatiron it. Luckily I only have to do this every 2-3 days; if I wash it every day it gets dried out.

My hair is short-ish: I get it cut in a sort of rough bob with a fringe and then every morning I wash and rinse it (no conditioner, takes about 3 minutes) and styling it consists of me rubbing it really hard with a towel and tucking the resultant bird's nest behind my ears. I use Lush solid shampoo because it is cheap per wash and hard to spill.
Sometimes I do comb it though. For interviews and things.
