I firmly believe that my quality of life and the quality of my hair run along a parallel path. Dandruff and split ends accurately reflect when I’m falling apart inside, just as shining, full hair indicates I’m killing the game.
Why I decided to hang onto the thin, crispy witch hair brushing my collarbone for so long is beyond me the split ends were truly hard to look at but I did it. I finally cut the dead strands off, turning my hair into a blunt, shoulder-length bob. I was left with a thick, healthy haircut that was actually on trend for once.
Another benefit to chopping off crusty hair is giving it the opportunity to grow out evenly. Short ‘dos are great and all, but I would love to have long, luscious hair swinging around my boobs. Now that my dead ends are in a landfill somewhere, I’m taking advantage of this summer as the season for growing out my hair. (Emotional growth can wait until next year you know, once my hair looks amazing.)
Assuming at least a few of my Internet peers intend on growing out their lobs this summer too, I’ve curated a selection of the best hair products in every category cleansing, conditioning, protecting, and styling.
