Have you heard all the squabbling that is going on over at The Stir over whether women should leave the house with wet hair? It is not to be believed. Michelle Zipp has an article over at the Beauty and Style forum (?) saying that leaving the house with wet hair was something she would never do before she had kids. She would NEVER leave the house with her hair wet-it just didn't look professional and made it seem as if you were too slovenly, hung over, etc. to care about what you look like.
I had to go and take personal offense (LOL), because my hair is NOT dry when I leave the house. I used to chemically straighten it, blow dry it, beat it down some more with the ceramic iron, the whole nine yards. I don't do any of this anymore-it is naturally curly, and beating it into submission was not beneficial for it, to put it mildly. I wash it twice a week, and on non wash days, I have to spritz it in order to apply 2 styling products to it in order to activate the curl pattern in it. So yeah, it's gonna be damp when I leave the house.
I've never had anyone accost me about why it was damp when I got to work. Granted, it is not dripping wet and it's not straight, so it will look different than someone who has bone straight hair that just got out of the shower. But honestly, all this nastiness about whether someone's hair is wet or dry when they go out in public, it's just crazy.
Do you guys think wet hair sends the impression that you don't care what you look like and/or a boss would take one look at you and figure that you can't do your job properly, because you can't even attend to your own grooming?
There is an awful lot of meanness flying around for a topic that should be really unimportant, IMO.
