“I love washing my hair everyday, I know it’s terrible and you shouldn’t do it, but I still do. But in 2007, I was in Kenya for a missions trip working with medical missionaries and orphanages and I didn’t wash my hair for a good four to five weeks. I had it in a bun and pretty much wore a bandana. Your glands stop producing oil after a week or two. It’s pretty gross. But there was no running water so no one was showering, it was just like, we were all dirty together. I finally washed it when we were visiting someone in Nyrobi who had running water so we all had a minute shower—it was the best feeling ever. I literally want to start rubbing my scalp right now just thinking of how amazing it felt.”
