I seem to have sparked a bit of a debate on Twitter this morning with this@
Haircut at 9.30am. Still have to shower and wash hair though. Tell me that is perfectly sane.
I got inundated with responses. More than I have received for any other question on Twitter recently.
90% of the responses told me I was sane and that this was perfectly acceptable.
Two ladies told me I was crazy and should use the time to have another cup of tea. As much as I love both those ladies, they are both barking mad, clearly.
One bloke told me that he had it on good authority
a bloke in a pub told him that actually you should cut hair that is dirty as it is easy to cut. If that is the case why do we always have our hair washed? Twice. Conditioner applied and our scalps massaged. Answer me that.
No, I am sorry there is no way that I am walking into the hairdressers with dirty hair. That would have meant leaving the house and doing the school run AND driving into Fleet, parking my car and walking to the salon, with “bed head”. What if I ran into somebody I know and they stopped to chat? What if I got hit by a bus? No, I am sorry that is not a risk I am prepared to take.
Two other responses were “If I had a cleaning lady I would clean before she arrived”. Check. Have done that in the past.
And “It is no different from cleaning your teeth before going to the dentist”. Exactly.
So the jury is in. I am not as insane as I thought.
What do you do though?
Hair appointment at 9.30am…. wash first or bed head?
