“Women Think About Their Hair Like Men Think About Sex”

Empress Sisi knew what was up

I want to begin this by saying that I actually cannot remember if I brushed my hair or not this morning.

But I guess I would remember if I spent $7,000 a year on blow-outs, which apparently some women are doing?

It’s okay! It’s just because women think about “their hair like men think about sex.” At least they do according to blow-out king Arsen Gurgov. Apparently:

Blow-dry addicts fret so much about Gurgov’s physical and mental state that they call the salon in advance to monitor his mood and general well-being. “ ‘He seemed a little tired yesterday. Is he OK today?’ Or, ‘He seemed to be blinking a lot, is he up for this?’ ” laughs Gurgov, “as if I were a brain surgeon performing a life-saving operation on the pope!”

Oh, my God, I think this is the best thing I have ever heard. This is all I want. I want people making frantic phone calls to insure I am not a little tired. You go, Gurgov. Your client base sounds out of their minds, but I think you could form a weird little religion, like they did in The Master. I still haven’t seen The Master, but I reckon it’s something of a how-to guide for people like you.

Look. Here is a secret. If you want straight, manageable hair, get it Japanese straightened. You’ll have to deep condition you hair every other week or so, because the treatment is drying, and you have to have it retouched every six months, but it only costs $350, which up until now I thought was kind of extravagant, but I now see is a total bargain. Here. If you are in New York, London or Tokyo, I really recommend Hayato.

    Wait, so your hair is Japanese-straightened? I need to know more! I’ve been thinking about getting that done, but have been too afraid that my hair will begin falling out or something. How “drying” is it? More drying that flat-ironing it every 3 or 4 days? What is the natural texture of your hair?

      No, no, I think it actually looks SO MUCH MORE HEALTHY than when I was flat ironing it all the time. They do recommend deep conditioning to keep it in good condition though, but if you don’t mind sitting in your bathtub for half an hours every two weeks, that’s okay.

      Ah, good to know– thank you!

    I don’t know about that quote. I think women think about their hair like men think about their hair. Men’s thoughts about sex are far more like their thoughts about food.

      That made me laugh. I imagined how my boyfriend eats….and then applied it to sex. I’m still laughing.

    You know, I’m fairly sure I think about sex like men think about sex.
    But then it would be nice to have some clarification as to HOW we supposedly think about these things. Does he mean with the same frequency? The same…horny-ness? I think about my hair quite a bit (in between thinking about sex and panicking because the printer isn’t working) but I wouldn’t say it’s a turn-on.

    Its an insult to men to classify them as unable to evolve out of their instincts and remain unable to find their id. However it statistically seems to be the case. Food and sex.

    I had my hair Japanese straightened three times and I ended up losing a significant portion of my hair that never grew back. That said, I’m not going to drop that kind of cash on blowouts and the woman who gave up a night out with her friends to save cash for one is nuts.
