I’ll shell out $40 for a decent haircut at the local Aveda. I will. And, hell, I’ll even admit to going to Aveda. Well, let’s clear that up right quick: After my last visit, with my stylist telling me repeated times how hungover and tired she was, I will not be going any longer. the last thing I want to hear from someone holding a pair of sheers and chopping my locks is how unfocused they are on the job they are doing. That said, I’m looking for a barber. Suggestions?
Back to the fundage: What gets me about hair product is the price of the damn stuff. I use Crew. I have been for years. Which is the point of all this. I bought my initial can of pomade (not pictured, as I just finished it) some 3 years ago. And I just finished it. That got me to thinking: “Product may seem ridiculously overpriced at upwards of $20. But when you consider it an investment versus a purchase, it’s easier to drop that scrilla*.” Used sparingly, as any product should be, it lasted that long. The other three cans (pictured) have lasted just as long, if not more. I admit, I use them even less, but the point remains.
*I only use the term “scrilla” when thinking to myself.
