And then you scramble to get your beautiful, thick, and long hair back. Because the truth is, with all the exposure to smoke, solar radiation, and pollution, heat, and additional sebum only make matters worse. Everybody starts with a haircut, tries different hairstyles, and ends up freaking out because of their dull hair.
