Do you have a question for ThePinkLadyJ? This is the place to look for it. I created this Q&A database when I realized I kept answering a lot of the same questions over and over again and in order to not sound like a broken record I have made this easy to use page, which is ever growing. All the questions so far are actual questions that people have already asked me.
If you have a question for me and it’s not here you may private message me on youtube “ThePinkLadyJ” or you can contact me through my email firstname.lastname@example.org (NOTE: NO BUSINESS INQUERIES. For business inquiries see contact page). Inappropriate questions will be ignored.
You can feel free to ask non-makeup related questions as long as it isn’t inappropriate or controversial (sorry I just don’t feel like talking religion or politics).
Yes, I am married, his name is Richard/Dickie. He’s in all my J’s Travels videos and a few others.
Since December of 2004.
1. My channel is NOT the Disney channel. I am not children’s entertainment. NOWHERE do I claim to be children’s entertainment. I am a grown woman on my own channel, in my own home, speaking my mind, and doing a hobby I enjoy. If you want children’s entertainment try Nickelodeon.
2. It is actually against YouTube terms of service for ANYONE under the age of 13 to be on YouTube – either making videos, or having an account to watch videos. Don’t believe me? See this official YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI2tmiKdPnU
3. I don’t have anything against kids liking makeup in principle, but makeup is generally considered a grown-up/mature activity, and that’s mostly what my channel is about. Any kid too young to hear a bad word is too young to wear makeup.
4. Your child isn’t hearing their first cuss word from me – I promise you! If your kids come to me, on my channel, they risk hearing language, because my channel is my space.
5. Grown ups have a right to say whatever they want – its called free speech – and where I come from in America it’s very important. Of course I also believe in having good manners; which is why I usually don’t directly cuss at any one person, or to any group of people, because it’d be very impolite (well at least not in my videos I’m sure I’ve called people ass holes for nearly killing me on the freeway more than a few times). If I drop the rare occasional bad word, it’s usually to describe my opinion on an object or experience. I believe it was Oliver Wendell Holmes who said: “The right to swing my fist ends where the other man’s nose begins.” I try to apply this philosophy in how I act towards others – sadly they don’t always apply it to me.
6. I don’t even cuss all that much, or all that badly, and in MOST of my videos I never cuss at all. I mean really, my language is VERY mild compared to some of the other people you can find on YouTube. Shanedawsontv and other huge YouTubers cuss tons in their videos, and talk about all kinds of mature matter that children shouldn’t hear, and they pull in way more views than me. I’m the least of your worries.
7. I was an English major in college, and I know about language and how it evolves, and where words come from; and cuss words are nothing more than words that a puritanical society long ago decided were inappropriate, and the idea has just lingered on. “Shit” is no worse than “poop.” It’s just that society has decided that some words are inappropriate, but has no good reason of explaining why “shit” should be a worse word than “poop,” except that that’s just the way it’s always been, at least as far back as Chaucer’s time. Words only have the power that we give them, and language evolves all the time. I don’t believe in such a thing as a “bad” word. Words are just verbal symbols people use to communicate ideas.
+Don’t you think you should be a better role model for your younger viewers?
Children of the Night helps give wayward children adequate shelter, medical, and psychological care. These are children who run away from abusive homes, and end up on the streets, falling into prostitution, and often die young of diseases, drugs, and suicide.
The Ronnie James Dio Stand up and Shout Cancer fund is a charity where 100% of the proceeds go to cancer awareness and education programs. Most people die from cancer because they just don’t know what watch out for. Ronnie James Dio (my all time favorite artist) passed away from stomach cancer, which could have been prevented if it had been found in its early stages. This charity was founded by his lovely wife Wendy. The best way to fight cancer is to find it early, and knowledge is the key.
This charity excepts donations which are used to give abandoned animals the food, shelter, and medical care they need, and most importantly, the opportunity to be adopted into a safe and loving home.
In America, not all families can afford to give their children the medical care they need, even if that child suffers from cancer. This charity raises funds to help families pay for the medical treatments of a child suffering from cancer.
90% V/CF. I don’t buy anything unless I’ve done my research, and know for an absolute fact that my products are V/CF – BUT, if someone gives me a product that isn’t V/CF, I might keep, or use it, just so I don’t hurt that person’s feelings. But I would never use “my own” money to support companies that are not V/CF.
80% V/CF. I try to avoid using products that aren’t V/CF whenever possible. But, sometimes I don’t know if a product is or isn’t V/CF, and buy it anyway. If I find out later that it is not V/CF, then I know to never buy from that company again.
70% V/CF. I try to avoiding products that aren’t V/CF whenever possible. But, sometimes I don’t know if a product is or isn’t V/CF, and buy it anyway. If I find out later that a product is not V/CF and I cannot find a product of similar or equal quality, color, or price from a company that is V/CF, than admittedly I might buy from that company again – but if I can find a V/CF dupe, I’d gladly make the switch.
60% V/CF. I like when I see companies that try to be V/CF, and I’d prefer to give them my money, more than some other company that isn’t V/CF. But, admittedly, I do give my money to companies that aren’t always V/CF, if I like their stuff well enough. I like the “idea” of V/CF, but it’s not something I feel passionately enough about to make radical changes to my shopping behavior. I generally mean well, but my purchases don’t always reflect my principles.
50% V/CF. I am indifferent about whether or not my products are V/CF.
40% V/CF: I often buy products that are not cruelty free, because I feel what’s done is done.
30% V/CF: I wouldn’t hurt an animal myself, but if companies want to test their products on animals I’m okay with it, because it’s for my safety, and it’s not like I’m the one having to perform the tests. My concept of animal testing is: “out of sight, out of mind” or “for the greater good.”
20% V/CF: I hate V/CF products, because I don’t trust something that hasn’t been thoroughly tested on an animal first, or I believe V/CF products are lacking in quality.
10% V/CF: I refuse to buy something that has not thoroughly gone through animal testing. My comfort, safety and convenience, are worth far more to me than some animal’s life, or if it suffers.
0% V/CF: I bite heads off chickens, and wear their blood as war paint.
I’ve had long hair my whole life. I have never had a significant hair cut. I was born with almost an inch of thick fuzzy brown hair all over my head. Mom & Dad never gave me a significant hair cut while it was growing out. By age 2, it was bra strap length (I wasn’t wearing a bra, that’s the length it’s called on adults but you get what i mean), by 3, it was at my waist, and by kindergarten it was down to my lower back. Through middle school, and high school, it was tailbone length, and after 18 it was down to my thighs. I trim 2” every 6 months to remove split ends and keep it healthy.
Nope quite easy, see my video on how I take care of it
I would if I could, but it seems to have reached its terminal length. Some people can grow hair to the floor, and beyond, but other people can’t grow their hair past a certain point, and that is determined by their genetics. Both my mother and father had/have long hair, and they both had/have a terminal length.
No. Locks of Love is a horrible scam. If you want to donate your hair, just don’t give it to them. Read these articles to see why.
And on and on and on – a million articles about why NOT to give to that organization. I frankly think giving money to children’s hospitals or charities, so families can afford to pay for their children’s treatments, does a far greater good than a bit of hair ever could. Donate blood, donate time, donate money if you really want to help those less fortunate.
I’ve had it my whole life – and I don’t want to cut it because
1. I happen to love it the way it is, and always have and always will.
2. Everybody else loves it – my friends, my family (with the exception of 1 family member), my husband, and even random strangers – of course the opinion that matters the most is my own, because it’s my hair, and my head, and I’m the one living with it.
3. It’s very easy to take care of.
4. It’s super inexpensive to take care of. I don’t use expensive hair tools. I don’t pay for salons. or stylists. or expensive products. Just shampoo and conditioner. and inexpensive shampoo and conditioner at that.
5. More people compliment my hair in one day. than most short-haired women get in a lifetime (and that’s not even counting online compliments).
6. You can do a lot with long hair styling-wise (lol well I “can” but I usually don’t. because I’m lazy).
7. Hundreds (maybe thousands of people by now) have come up to me and said “promise me you wont cut your hair.” so I guess I got a lot of promises to keep – so I will.
-Why do you have such long hair?
This isn’t quite the same question as “why won’t you cut it.” The answer is simple – I like it. Why wear bright eyeshadow? Why listen to Heavy Metal? Why do you like fantasy? Why is pink your favorite color? Why do anything that I do? Because I like it – not a lot of mystery to it – I just know what I like.
-Will you do another hair brushing video – slower/sexier/naked?
NO! My channel is not here to support the hair fetish demographic. If you want to watch my videos (for whatever weird reason) fine, but I’m not catering specifically to fetishers.
-What brand hair brush do you use, and where can I get one?
Mine is a “Goody” brand brush. I’ve had it a loooooooong time, maybe since before Jr. High (wow damn I guess its a very durable brush it never looses bristles). I think I got it at a Target, or K-mart, but seeing as it’s been with me so long, I can’t be sure. I went to their site www.goody.com and they still sell brushes, but I didn’t see mine specifically. Mine is a bristle brush, it’s better for volumizing straight or thin hair. Any bristle such as a boar bristle should be of equal effect.
-What hair products do you use?
Inexpensive shampoo and conditioner. I used to use Suave, White Rain or Vo5, but these days I’ve been enjoying Organix. And a regular bristle brush. Yep that’s all!
-How often do you brush your hair? Do you brush 100 strokes a day?
I give it one quick brushing in the morning before I wash it (washing tangled hair = disaster). I give it one thorough brushing after it dries, and then sometime during the day I’ll give it one more quick brushing, in case it gets untidy. That’s about it. As for 100 strokes a day, hell if I know. I don’t count; that’d be way too tedious for me. I like to think about other things while doing my hair, I’m not that focused on it.
-Why wont you do a tutorial about your hair?
Because there is NOTHING to do a tutorial about. I wash it, I brush it. That’s it! You don’t need a tutorial showing you how to do that. NO, I will not wash it for you to see. That’s unnecessary. And as for brushing, I already made a video showing my morning hair brushing routine:
And no, I will not make MORE videos showing me brushing my hair because ONE is enough!
I have done one hair style tutorial because that’s about ALL I can do. I don’t do much with my hair style-wise (I get more compliments just leaving it down and natural anyway), so there isn’t much I know how to do:
-Will you (or why won’t you) do more hair videos? Brushing, flipping, washing, dunking, trimming, etc…
Alright you guys lets get one thing straight right here and NOW! My channel does not exist to support the hair fetisher demographic – PERIOD! If you guys want to watch my videos, FINE. I don’t mind. If you want to enjoy them for whatever pleasures they offer you – FINE! If you want to subscribe in hopes of me posting more hair-related videos – FINE! But, please understand I am NOT going to cater to your fetishes. That is NOT the point of my channel. I am NOT here to provide sexual thrills for men. If I show my hair at all it is to provide actual information; about myself, grooming tips, or other such USEFUL information involving hair care or style. I am not going to show myself, washing, dunking, trimming, flipping, twisting, playing, or doing other such stupid things with my hair just to get your jollys off! Sorry wrong channel!!! You can enjoy my videos that are there for what they are, but I will not take requests that I deem of a sexual nature. And no, I will not make more videos showing me brushing my hair. I have made one (to depict how long my morning hair routine is), and ONE is enough. Do not ask me for more.
-How long is your hair?
As of 8/4/10 it was 37” but then as soon as I was done measuring it I had my Bi-annual 2” trim and busted myself down to 35”.The measurement was taken with a tape-measure starting at where my hair parts at the top and spanning to the very ends. If this isn’t how you measure your hair, or how “experts” measure their hair – oh well! I only measured to answer this question, which people kept asking, and I did it to the best of my ability. I’m not trying to get any world records, and I don’t want the world’s longest hair. If you won’t consider my measurement accurate enough, then at least consider it a good estimate. The measurement I took on 8/4/10 was actually the first time in my life I have ever even bothered to measure my hair, because before people started asking, I never even cared.
-What hair dye do you use?
3 or 4 times a year (or whenever I feel like it) I’ll dye just the front parts of my hair pink using Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink. I like it because it’s not that harsh of a dye, it’ll show up over my hairs natural color, AND I know for a fact it will 100% wash out after time.
-Why wont you dye all of your hair?
Because it would take 10 jars of dye, 4 extra pairs of hands, and a professional clean up crew. Just doing the front parts is already way more effort than I like, so I don’t get in the mood to do it too often.
-Why don’t you dye your hair “insert color here”?
I like my natural color just fine. I use Pink if I want to play with something unnatural. Any other unnatural colors won’t show up in my hair unless I bleach it, and bleach is permanent, so that is not an option.
-Why wont you cut layers into it?
Layers are a fad, and I don’t happen to like the way they look. I don’t think my hair would look better with layers. I get a lot of people literally angry with me because I wont conform to modern hair trends and do what all the fashion magazines say is popular. They tell me my hair is boring. What’s boring to me is having the same hair everyone else has, because it’s “in style.” Someone with hair over three feet long, isn’t something you see every day, so it’s far from boring as far as I’m concerned. If you want layers – get them for your hair. I like mine the way it is, and I’m the one who has to live with my hair, and I’d rather do my own thing and be happy than do what everyone else is doing.
-Why don’t you want bangs?
I had them up until I was in the 2nd grade, and I fricken hated them. I hated how they constantly needed to be trimmed, and how unless I fussed with styling them, they hung there like a limp curtain – no thanks. Been there. Done that. I asked my mom to let them grow, and I’ve never looked back since.
-Is your hair heavy?
Generally, no. Most of the time I don’t even notice it. The only time my hair ever feels heavy, is if it’s wet, or if I were to change the part in my hair – when the weight isn’t evenly distributed it can feel too heavy on one side.
-Does your hair cause you to have headaches?
-Why don’t you part your hair differently?
I like my hair parted in the middle. I know a lot of people have a hard time accepting that. You’d be AMAZED how many people don’t want to accept that, but it is quite true – I like my hair parted in the middle. I tried parting it more to one side when I was younger, and I didn’t like it. I didn’t like the way it looked, or the way it felt. Believe it or not, parting my hair in any other way than the natural part down the middle is quite painful. Your hair grows in certain natural directions on your head, and for me forcing my hair to part in ways that it wouldn’t naturally part, causes the follicles on my scalp to hurt. Not to mention my hair – when parted down the middle – doesn’t feel heavy to me. I’m quite comfortable with it. But if I force the majority of my hair onto one side of my head, then yes, I can feel it being heavy, and it is a little on the uncomfortable side – probably because the weight isn’t being evenly distributed.
-Does your hair feel too hot in the summer?
Nope, and I’ve lived in Southern California my whole life. I do notice that I feel colder if its winter and I wear my hair up in a bun though. I’m more used to warmth than cold but that just comes with being a Californian I think.
-Do you hate short hair?
I’d hate it if it were on me. I don’t have the face for it, and I love my long hair. But contrary to what a lot of people think I don’t hate short hair, or different hair types, or hair styles, on other people. I have friends with hair of all lengths, colors, and types, and on them I really like their looks. Just because I wouldn’t wear something for myself doesn’t mean I dislike it in general. Everyone has to do what works best for them, or what makes them happy, and if you like straightened hair, permed hair, layered, asymmetrical cut, fairy tale ends, blunt cuts, bangs, no bangs, long, short, and everything in between, then by all means rock that shit!
-Why didn’t your parents cut your hair when you were growing up?
Well, my mom desperately wanted long hair ever since she was a little girl, but grandma kept whacking it all off, so finally mom won out in high school and grew her hair long – and she loved it – but then after high school she cut her hair into a bob and positively hated it, and really missed her long hair. Eventually she grew it back. It was lower back length for the rest of her days (she’s since passed on). But when she had me, she didn’t want to do to me what grandma did to her, so she let my hair grow (with the exception of cutting bangs for me – which I hated).
My dad had similar parental issues. Grandpa was a military man, and all his boys had to have crew cuts, and my dad grew up when the Beatles were getting big and he so desperately wanted a “mop top,” but grandpa wouldn’t have it. Finally around high school grandpa loosened up and let dad grow a bit of hair. Not too much, maybe a few inches, but that’s a lot compared to a military crew cut. He was really enjoying it up until he joined the navy. Bzzzt there goes all the hair! As soon as he got out of the Navy he started growing it long. He has waist length hair now. He wishes he could get it longer, but it’s at a terminal length, and he loves it. I think it’s cool that he has long hair, and does his own thing (I think my dad looks like a medieval wizard – and that’s awesome by the way LOL). Naturally, when I came along, my dad was all for letting my hair grow. He’s always been of the opinion that women look better with some hair (which is probably why he liked mom so much).
I guess I’m very lucky that I had two parents that supported me growing my hair and I’m very thankful to the both of them for that.
-Will you curl your hair?
Nope. Curling my hair would require 1 of 3 possible methods.
Dry curling: where you put your hair in curlers after washing it and when they dry, they hold a curl. But, dry curling doesn’t work on me for more than an hour or two because my hair is so long, and so heavy, the very weight of my hair flattens the curls out. Not to mention, I wash my hair in the morning, and dry curling is something you have to do at night. I couldn’t sleep comfortably with curlers in my hair. I live with my husband and I don’t think he’d find “curler head’ very attractive either lol.
A Curling iron: Any product that uses heat – at all – is completely out of the question. Nothing damages hair worse than heat. I know they sell products to help protect your hair from heat, but the heat can still do damage, even through the best of products, and I don’t feel like damaging my hair permanently for a temporary look – no thanks.
A Perm: Believe it or not; when I was in the 5th grade my mom took me to a salon where they gave me a spiral perm. The stylist found it quite cumbersome trying to perm hair that was as long as mine, and warned my mom for hair my length it might take a lot of work to take care of it after the perm – and she wasn’t kidding. I positively HATED that perm. I had actually wanted curly hair before I got it, because I have always believed curly hair to be exceptionally beautiful (I still believe this actually), but it just wasn’t meant for me. I like hair I can just brush quick and go, and curly hair takes a lot more time, and completely different brushing and combing methods than what I’m used to. My best friend has hip length, super thick, and super curly hair, and I don’t know how she manages it and keeps it so beautiful, but for me curly hair was the worst thing I had ever done to myself. I have no desire to repeat the experience.
-Do you flat iron your hair?
Nope. It’s naturally straight this way. I have had some people tell me I should flat iron it anyway – – – why? I mean really, I don’t get why I would want hair flatter than it already is. I think girls these days are really enslaved by the flat iron, and I blame modern trends and fashion magazines. Apparently if you don’t have hair as thin and straight as a sheet of paper you’ve sinned against fashion – fashion can take a hike.
-You should cut your hair just to thin it out because it’s too thick.
I know that’s a statement and not a question, but I get it enough to where I think it needs to be addressed. I LOVE how thick my hair is. I don’t see why in the world I would ever want thin scraggly hair. Long hair also tends to look much better if it’s kind of thick. Super long hair, that is as thin as a pencil when put into a braid or pony tail, just isn’t my thing. When I see thick hair, I think healthy. Thin hair doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy, some people just have hair that is of a very fine texture, and even though it’s not very thick their hair is always the softest of the soft. My hair is of a medium texture, and so it naturally tends to be a bit thicker – that’s just the way nature made it and I don’t see the point in trying to change that – especially when it would look bad for my hair type. I think the people who tell me my hair is too thick are also the same people obsessed with having the flattest flat ironed hair possible. That’s kind of sad, because I think if people have naturally thick, wavy, or curly hair, they should embrace it and wear it the way it is. Thick, wavy and curly hair is very beautiful, and I think it’s kind of sad that modern fashion tells girls they should hide or destroy it all with a flat iron. I can’t wait for the flat iron fad to go away.
-Can I touch it?
No creeper. Seriously I’ve had strangers touch my hair before, and it is NOT cool. That is a major violation of someone’s personal space. I don’t mind if friends, family, and loved ones touch it, because I’m comfortable with them – but strangers – absolutely not.
-Do you use coconut oil?
I’ve tried it a couple times but it didn’t seem to do anything for my hair – and I hate hate hate the way oil (good or bad) feels in my hair. Yuck.
-How often do you wash your hair?
Every day. I have a super super oily scalp. And yes, I have tried washing it less, because supposedly over-washing can cause more oil production – it didn’t work. I tried washing it every other day, every two days for weeks on end to see if it would change or get better – it didn’t. Some people, believe it or not, really can produce just that much oil. I also tried using oil in my hair (like coconut oil) because I heard that helps – it didn’t. My hair just has to be washed every day, that’s all there is to it. To combat all the washing I just make sure to let the conditioner soak in for the duration of my whole shower, and my hair doesn’t really feel or sound dry at all.
-How much shampoo and conditioner do you use?
If you mean – in one washing – then I use a palm-full of shampoo and a palm-full of conditioner.
If you mean – how long does it take me to go through a bottle of shampoo or conditioner – I go through about a whole bottle of both in a month’s time – which isn’t much of a hardship because I use very inexpensive shampoos and conditioners.
-Does your hair take a long time to wash?
Nope. I shower every morning no matter what, so while I’m in there I just whip in a little shampoo and conditioner at the start of my shower, and rinse it all out at the end. Probably takes me no more than 3-4 minutes tops. Most of my shower time doesn’t even involve my hair.
-How long does it take for your hair to dry?
If you saw my hair care video you know I air dry because blow dryers are damaging. My hair takes about 1-2 hours to dry, depending on the weather. I happen to live in a very warm and dry climate, so I think that helps a lot because I’ve had people who live in cooler, or more humid climates, tell me it takes their hair 6-8 hours to air dry. Another thing that might help, is that I wear my hair up in a towel for 5-10 minutes, and that absorbs a lot of the excess water. Then when I take the towel down I rub my hair all over with the towel between my hands to help get even more excess moisture off, and that also helps separate the strands. Hair that gets into the “wet hair dreadlocks” takes longer to dry because when the strands are all bunched together the air can’t reach the individual hair strands as easily.
-What’s your hair washing routine like?
I wake up and the fist thing I do is brush my hair (1-2 minutes) with a soft bristle brush. I don’t use combs. This removes any knots I might have acquired in the middle of the night (I don’t have much of an issue with knots), then I jump straight in the shower. The first thing I do in the shower is work in some shampoo but just from the neck up, because that’s where all the oil production is. Then I let the shampoo run down the length of my hair. Then I ring out the length and put conditioner into the length of my hair – only from the shoulders down because with my oily scalp I don’t need conditioner anywhere but the length. Then I proceed with the rest of my shower while the conditioner and shampoo have time to soak into my hair. After I’m done with all the rest of my shower routine I just rinse out the shampoo and conditioner. Of my whole 10-15 minute shower, only 3-4 minutes of it actually involves doing anything with my hair. I take long showers because they’re relaxing mostly so I hate to rush. I thoroughly wring out my hair, then I get out of the shower and I wrap my hair up in a towel (turban style) for about 5-10 minutes while I do my skin care routine and get dressed. The towel absorbs the majority of the excess moisture. When I take off the towel I rub my hair all over with the towel to separate all the strands and pick up any other excess moisture. Then my hair just air dries while I do the rest of my morning routine: eat, coffee, email, makeup, get my stuff ready for the day etc. The very very last thing I do before I walk out the door is brush my hair (2-3 minutes), that way my hair will have had the most air dry time possible. If it’s still a little on the damp side (in the colder months of winter it may take a little longer than normal to dry), then I just do a very light gentle top layer brushing and wait until I get to my destination to give it a more deep and thorough brushing. A soft bristle brush is VERY gentle on the hair so I can brush rather quickly without doing damage. So, all in all, my hair takes about 7-10 minutes out of my entire morning including brushing, washing and drying. Most people with shorter hair take waaaaay longer on their hair in a day, and most people don’t even wash it every day like I do. So you see long hair really isn’t hard to take care of, and is quite quick and easy to take care of if you know how. If I wanted to put my hair in a braid maybe add 5 minutes to that estimate, if a bun add 15 (I’m slow at buns). Mostly I just leave my hair down. It doesn’t bother me to have it down. I might give it one or two mid-day brushings to keep it tidy, and at night I throw it over the back of my pillow where it does a good job of staying out of my way and manages to have an easy time of avoiding knots – I know this seems like a lot of explaining for doing so little but for some reason people have a hard time believing how easy and quick it really is.
-Aren’t you supposed to cut your hair every 6-12 weeks?
The reason most people have to trim their hair every 6-12 weeks is because most people these days use things like blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons, or they brush or comb their hair while wet (very damaging), or use harsh dyes, bleach, and take regular trips to salons where stylists torture their client’s hair with harsh chemicals. If you don’t do any of that stuff – then you don’t have to trim more than 2 or 3 times a year. And the people who say 6-12 weeks, are usually the people working in the salons. Of course they’ll tell you to come back every 6-12 weeks because 1. That’s more money, more often, for them and 2. They’re the one’s probably causing most of the damage that’s being done to your hair.
I never use ANY heat tools on my hair, no bleach, no chemicals, no products other than shampoo and conditioner, I never brush or comb it when wet, and I always let it air dry. I occasionally will use a mild dye to color just the very front of my hair pink, but that’s about it. Because I don’t punish my hair, my hair stays quite healthy, and I only really start needing a trim after about 6 or 7 months. When that time comes I only trim 2” which removes any split or dry ends and helps the hair look more full and even and healthy.
-How do you use the toilet with hair that long?
This question is pretty much always of a facetious nature. I mean seriously – You can’t figure out that you just MOVE IT? Surely you can figure that much out? If the concept of moving something out of the way is really too much for you to grasp; you must have an awful lot of shit in your pants.
