I remember a Chris Rock comedy on this a few years ago, great movie. We, as People, look at each other and make up 97% of the character, inside and out, desire, trust, etc. in just a few seconds. We pay $10k to $50k to fix our teeth, Hair is so much more of a factor when we look at some one verses teeth. Men spend many, many thousands to fix THEIR hair!!! Why can’t women deserve the same respect with our hair. You can see a women with “Good Hair” from a few blocks, how close do you have to be to someone to judge their teeth?
I think it’s a trap…if you can’t afford it up front, why are you trying to finance it? YouTube tutorial goddesses have provided us cheaper options. There is no reason to go into debt to have flawless hair.
