Jenn with long hair

In Which Jenn Runs With Short Hair(!)

I have had long hair for the better part of two decades. For the last 10 years especially, I mean long – like almost-to-my-butt long. And I like it like that! It feels very me. I call it my Fairy Princess Hair. Well, I don’t have it any more. I hacked it all off last week. WHY??? you scream, flecks of spittle hitting your monitor as you shake it with fearful rage. … Okay, maybe you don’t care about my hair as much as I do, for some reason.

In Which Jenn Has A Sweaty Hair Epiphany

Several years ago I read a supposed statistic that something like 50% of women don’t work out because they don’t want to mess up their hair. Now, I don’t know if that’s a ridiculous fabrication or an equally ridiculous truth, but I CAN tell you that I recently had a Workout + Hair Epiphany. It happened when my roommate joined the legion of people, both Real Life- and Media-Based, that insist that you shouldn’t wash your hair more than, max, three times a week. It strips your hair of necessary oils and what have you and you’ll have a...
