Are you defined by your hair?

Do we pay too much attention to our hair?


Although it's not a new epidemic, I have recently become more aware of the immense attention that women, including myself, pay to our hair. I am all for healthy hair but when is enough, enough? It is so easy to get caught up in the whole excitement of a hair journey and spend hours on youtube or hair networks such as hairlista.com and then spend hours treating our hair and then some more hours looking for products and  then minutes to spend money on products that we heard were Amazing... believe me I know. Knowledge is power, right? BUT Does our hair have power over us? 



I remember when I was in 1st year university and there was an incident where one of my housemates burnt her hair on the cooker and yelped, "No! not my hair I'd rather have burnt my face." -_______- It was like really, your face over your hair, personally I'd rather not burn neither but I'm sure you get my point. I've often been told by the older generation that hair is a woman's beauty and although that may hold some 'truth', as women we shouldn't forget that true beauty comes from within. I don't know about you but I would much prefer to be described as "the woman with the kind heart" as opposed to "the woman with the nice hair."
