The biggest vice

"Bye Hannah, have a good night alone. Don't throw a party or I'll give you a lobotomy."
Judy, walking out the door.

My hair is my biggest vice.
When we talk about poverty and such, I generally feel like I can do better. Sure, I donate to charity here and there, but I can do better. Maybe I didn't need the new dress or new shoes. Maybe I can go to the library instead of buying all my books. But when it comes to my hair, I feel absolutely no shame.
My hair is my biggest vice.
I unashamedly spend obscene amounts of money on it. Cut and Color every 5 weeks (6 if I can't get an earlier appointment), 3 different shampoos/conditioners that I rotate throughout the week so I don't get buildup (I think purple pureology is my favorite), Sundays are for deep conditioning my hair (Kevin Murphy born again is the bomb), and the last friday of every month is detoxifying rinse day, and, of corse, the everyday products (the leave-in spray conditioner, the matte texture paste, the finishing serum, etc.)
My hair is my biggest vice.
But I think that's okay. I think we all need a few vices here and there. The joy trigger vices, that make even the worst days bearable.
So what's yours?

  1. Books. I still buy books despite the Kindle, the library, the small space. I have never felt guilty buying books.

  2. Shoes. Whether they are cheap or are going to cost me an arm and a leg.
