Is Hair All You Care About? Pt. 1

Has anyone ever said that to you? Or has someone made a statement similiar to this? What did you say to it? Some women seem offended when another women knows something other than the usual about hair care. This could be deep conditioning, acv rinses, the difference between moisturizing and protein conditioners, etc. Why ask another woman about hair care if you really don't care what the answer is? Or if you're just going to bash the answer? Of course hair is not the only thing I care about, but I do care a lot about it's health... in the same way I care about taking showers, giving myself a pedicure, brushing my teeth, etc...lol.
Sometimes people ask me hair questions when I'm out and about or just in general....but do they really care to hear my answers? Some women reply with a "You do that???". Granted I am not an official hair care expert, but I am an expert when it comes to my hair. Okay maybe expert is too strong of a word, but I do know a lot about my hair...lol. I learn new things about my hair all the time. I just try to encourage others to do the same. A lot of things in life come thru trials and tribulations and hair care is no different. You have to try out products, regimens, etc so you can see what works for your hair. There are no shortcuts to obtaining healthy hair and growth.
What are your thoughts about this?

I think it is always funny when people don't understand what you are doing when it comes to your hair care regimen. I like to grease my scalp...some frown upon hearing that but it works for me. Especially when I bow to pressure and stopped. I developed major dandruff problem. One thing is not for everyone. Keep doing you and love yourself for doing that.
