A dirty little hair secret

Call me Gretchen Wieners, but instead of everyone else's secrets in my hair, I hide my own.
What exactly do I conceal? The fact that my hair is always dirty. Call me a bad beauty assistant, but even with access to almost every shampoo on the market, I can't be bothered most of the time. Come over, have some tea, pull back my shower curtain, and take a peek. You'll find an overflowing shower caddy liable to break at any moment. Being a hoarder is pretty much in my job description.

The washing and conditioning? Easy! It's the aftercare I can't stand. Just the thought of blow-drying my hair makes my arms hurt. Section, round brush, and then finish with a curling wand? I'll pass.
So how do I convince the world that my most complimented hairstyle (simple Dutch braids) is just my "cool girl that cuts the line at Supreme drops" look and not my last resort? I don&'t, but if you see me with them, just know I'm five or six days out from a shampoo bottle.
Dove Hair research found that eight in ten women feel pressure to wear their hair a certain way. In order to break down the beauty standards that prevent women from loving their hair—and celebrate all hair types—Allure and Dove have partnered to feature real women in hair stories.
