|Isla Fisher demonstrates frugal hair. OK, she probably paid someone to brush it for her.|
...OK, maybe not super-frugal. I mean, longer hair needs more shampoo, which costs more money. But longer hair needs less upkeep and less trims, which is more frugal.
One thing I know for sure is that embracing your natural hair is the most frugal thing, and I am totally on board that train. My hair is basically its natural colour (no hair dye = frugal!) and I don't straighten it very often (lack of hair product for straightening = frugal!).
But then there's the whole Haircut Thing. I mean, as I've discussed before, the Frugal thing would be to just grow my hair out wild and free, perhaps occasionally cutting off bits with a piece of broken glass I find on the street.
|It's like 1,000 free haircuts!|
However, I really like getting haircuts. And there's a reason hairdressers are able to charge as much as they charge, and why they have licenses and have been trained. They know what they're doing. This is part of why I hesitate to go to the haircutting school, although rationally I know that they will have teachers there keeping an eye on them.
I kind of did the Frugal thing already, in that I trimmed some of my split ends myself. And now my hair is kind of raggedy. Bang trims are always free, and I learned my lesson at age 15 that self-cut bangs are Never A Good Idea.

So I don't know what the solution is here. It's not self-cut hair, as my random hair ends can currently attest. And for Shopping Detox, it's not about going for a high-priced haircut. So I don't know? I do not know what the answer is here. But I do definitely need a haircut sometime soon.
