You see, it has recently come to my attention that I'm apparently somewhat preoccupied, shall we say,.. obsessed, with hair and hairstyles.
I'm not sure when it happened, but it seems that nine times out of ten, if I'm commenting on someone's appearance, I will comment on their hair. Their hairstyle, hair colour, hair thickness, hair longness or hair sleekness. It's disturbing to me to realise that this crept up on me unawares.
This is from someone who washes their hair and that's it. More often than not I put my hair up into a ponytail and never think of it again. I don't use products to defrizz it, curl it, straighten it, soften it, disentangle it. I don't regularly have it cut, dyed or treated. I just let my hair go on its merry, often messy, way.
Yet, if it's someone else. Anyone else. It could be an actor. It could be someone walking down the street. I will notice something about their hair and possibly comment on it. WHY?
