8 Ways Low Cut Hair Actually Makes Your Life Easier

May 1, 2020

Low cut hair is so underrated. Keeping short hair literally takes your hair off the list of things you have to worry about, stress over and spend on. Low cut hair is legit one of the most budget friendly slay options out there and here’s why;

1. You spend less money on maintanance.

This means no charge for hair appointments, hair extensions, hair dressers, hair shampoos, hair this, hair that. That’s a lot of money you could redirect to something else, like good old sweet food.

2. You spend less time on maintanance.

Yassss, no wash days, no spending the entire day at the salon because you had to wait your turn. Then your hair took a while because it’s braids and there was traffic on your way back so you got home by 12 mid night. None of that dear.

3. You can pour water on your head when you bathe.

Once you do this, you’ll be mad at the rest of the world for not telling you how orgasmic a feeling it.

4. No headache from new hair styles.

You know that vicious headache you get from a new hair style because the hair dresser put too much pressure on your scalp? It is non existent with short hair. The only pressure your scalp feels with short hair is the breeze gently caressing it.

5. No awkward sleeping positions from new hair styles.

You know how when you make a new hair style your head suddenly becomes a source of pain? Low cut hair isn’t that petty dear.

6. You can throw on a wig on the go.
