It's all about the hair. Always.

I now have four, count them, FOUR girls living in my house.
Four daughters. Four girls who's hormones are in full kick...even the younger ones.

Think about it. Really. Think what this means: four teenage girls under one roof at the same time. I can feel more gray hairs sprouting even as I type.


And that is how it goes, because really, it's all about the hair. All the time. It's the hair.

This concept baffles Coffeedoc. But it's true. For girls, it's all hair, all the time.

An inordinate amount of time attention and expense is put to hair. Discussion, comparison, griping, squabbling over products and tools, dreaming of styles, pondering changes or not....it's all hair. Consuming. The mere mention some days can bring on grins or tears....again baffling Coffeedad.
But there you have it. This can be considered a public service announcement.
For a teen, or preteen girl...when in doubt or confusion about what's going on - it's the hair.
You're welcome.

That's so funny! I thank you in advance, since we will soon have two girls in our home. There is already hair stuff going on with just myself & Mimi in the house. Poor Chris, he will be out numbered and just as baffled as coffeedoc very soon. ;-)

I've loved loved loved following you for quite some time now! This may be my favorite post :-) I have 2 little women who are up and coming upon adolescence and boy will things get interesting...especially since we currently have 1 bathroom for our 6 (soon to be 7) member family. I think that's my sweetheart husband's next project! Thanks for your faith, your family and letting the rest of us learn through you. By the way, all of your girls have gorgeous hair!

P.s. I'm going gray too - and you've inspired me to stay natural. Yea!

You have some seriously beautiful girls!
I'm always looking at my little one's hair thinking,"it's too dry", "it's to tight", "it's not tight enough", "it's too wild". UG I don't want to project that onto her!
