It is no surprise to anyone who knows me that I love hair. To avoid gross references and inappropriate comments I will narrow head hair. It amazes me the depth of conversations that I can have revolving around hair. Just yesterday I had a conversation where I connected my hair care with the green movement with a little help from an NPR story. The story addresses how often Americans wash their hair (twice as often as many Europeans), how often we should wash our hair and then it talks about the "No-poo" movement which entails giving up shampooing completely. One person who gave up shampooing used baking soda as a cleanser and vinegar as conditioner.
While I don't see myself going "No-poo" anytime soon I do think it is important to realize we often do what we do more from habit than t be "healthy." I am trying to get my own hair washing down to twice a week, so if you see me please refrain from calling me a grease-ball, it may take awhile for my hair to adjust. Such comments may not only shatter my self confidence but also contribute to global warming and increase deterioration of the ozone.
Here is a familial etiology of hair:
Grandpa Campbell, he has a fine head of hair and still does to this day. In the picture below he is the one folding his arms.
My mom (in red) also had great hair.
