Oh gosh, do I know about that! In my teen years my hair was a bigger mess than my hormones -frizzy and out of control. After learning how to take better care of it, the right products to use, and how to style it people started saying "You have such beautiful hair!" all the time. It really went from being the bane of my existence to being one of my better physical features. It's amazing what some knowledge and a little product can do! ;)

Hair confidence makes me feel more confident in general. When I'm having a good hair day, it really can improve my mood. I feel more outgoing and just better about myself overall. The bad hair days can do just the opposite. When I'm not happy in my cut, color or style, I've noticed that it can influence my mood and cause me to be irritable and withdrawn.

Hair confidence and happiness means that no matter what I'm dressed in, whether it's a hoodie and jeans or a fantastic dress, I still feel good about my appearance. If my hair is looking good, than I feel good!

It may sound silly, but liking the way my hair looks and feels is super important to me. If someone drops by

Hair confidence means that I can do my hair in the morning and feel like it looks healthy and pretty.

Hair confidence means no need to carry around a clip or ponytail holder just in case. It means I can style my hair down and leave it all day without worrying about what a mess I've become.

I am a total product junkie and love buying things for my hair. Getting hair compliments means a lot to me and it raises my self-esteem a ton.

If I let bad hair days spoil my fun I'd never be happy. lol I always carry a hat or ponytail holder just in case because I know what could/will happen to my hair.

I had to laugh when I read your reply about your hair having the ability to kill any fun. It never fails that when I'm having a bad hair day at the office, my entire day usually goes bad. I can't ever think of a time I had a good day with bad hair. It gets me to thinking that maybe next time my boss is being a witch I should hand her a hair clip and some bobby pins.

My hair is the only thing I'm proud of. I don't do makeup, I don't dress up... but I DO have a waist-length mane of very red hair, that when I get compliments on it, I feel SO good. I actually had a client comment on my hair when I forgot to put it up before cleaning her house, and it just made me feel good!
