    Equal parts uncomfortable and eye-opening.

    Hi, I'm Sarah and I hate washing my hair.

    Day 1: Started off strong, thanks to a trip to Bumble and Bumble salon for some fresh color.

    Day 2: To quote The Beatles, I "let [my hair] be."

    Day 3: I work from home because I'm not feeling too well, successfully avoiding human contact and anyone seeing my hair that day.

    Day 4: The oil has become inevitable. There is nothing else to say.

    Day 5: In which I learn how to tango with a questionable acquaintance: dry shampoo.

    Day 6: I'm ready to throw in the towel. Or throw a towel on me, more precisely. Like, after I take a shower.

    Day 7: Yay weekend! Boo matted hair!

    And...then came the WASH. *chorus of angels sings*

    So did I actually learn anything from this ~dirty~ week?
