Wet Hair. Does it offend you?
Since adopting the naturally curly hair care method I have avoided using a hairdryer. It has been over a year since I have used a blow dryer to straighten or flat iron my hair. I have discovered more curl in my hair than I ever knew I had, and the qualities of my hair have vastly improved. These changes include having less hair breakage and overall heat damage, hair that feels much softer, shinier, and has hardly any frizz.
We leave the house with dripping wet hair. Yes, curls should airdry. Yes, that can take forever. So do it the night before, or wake up early. Or use a diffuser on your hair dryer or roll your wet hair into a bun. But please do not go out into public with a dripping wet head.
Is wearing your hair wet in public offensive? After many divided comments at that post, she elaborated her complaints further in a second post titled, “Drip, Drip, Drip: Should One Go Out in Public With a Wet Head?” Julyne writes, “So I have a beauty pet peeve. I don’t like it when women with long, wet, curly hair ride the subway. If the subway jolts, I can’t help but imagine a bunch of wet hair slapping me across the face.” The comments on both sides have been fascinating. Clearly there is need to educate and clear the air.
Does it offend you when someone at work or around town has wet hair? I am not talking soaking wet, straight-out-of-the-shower wet hair; I mean clean, damp, neatly styled wet hair. Does having it cut short or long matter? I am also referring to this hair being “first thing out the door morning hair,” not on your way to a formal evening event, or to a professional business meeting.
If you would have seen me today, this is what I would have looked like dropping off my daughter for kindergarten. Would I have offended you? I really would like to know.
