I am no minimalist – at least not in the truest sense of the word. I love the idea (many of us do). As a matter of fact, it is the newest ‘it’ thing these days.
On YouTube you are bound to find someone sipping an expensive glass of wine or drinking some form of herbal tea you can only order directly from China showing you a closet that used to be filled with clothing from H&M and Forever 21 now drilled down to a few basics, some jeans and one pair of boots.
The problem with this new phenomenon is that we all do not know how to clearly define it, we don’t know if its only about what is in our closet vs indulging in bottles of expensive wine. Or is it about not having a TV or internet and living from food from your own garden.
Minimalism for now is what we want it to be, but the premise and the source of it is what is most important. I saw this quote online:
“We waste so many days waiting for the weekend. So many nights wanting morning. Our lust for future comfort is the biggest thief of life.” —Joshua Glenn Clark
I understood it to mean that we are always worried about the next thing and not being present in the situation that we are in.
If we define minimalism the way we want to for our life we can apply it in ways that can save us a ton of time and money and that can allow us to truly have the best of both worlds. On one hand we achieve all our goals and other hand we save time so we can do other things.
Our hair regimen is one of those things that can get pretty involved, we can spend an entire day, Sunday or Saturday mostly doing hair stuff and some of us miss out on other things that need our attention.
This post has 4 simple suggestions or tweaks you can make to your regimen that will save you time, energy and ultimately money. The idea is to help you become less ‘involved’, still allow you to meet your hair health and length goals and at the same time minimize the expense, (time and money) of hair.
