This annoyed me. For a bunch of reasons.
This was the number one reason.
It’s probably fair to say that many Irish women’s hair is overprocessed, heat-styled to within an inch of its life, dyed to smithereens and highlighted beyond recognition. And even if it is still in a relatively natural state, Irish hair tends to be quite coarse in texture – compare it, for example, to the silky manes of our Asian sisters.
So it is probably fair to say that if you’re Irish, you should be feeling bad about your hair.
This will explain the next blog entry which I will link here when I have written it, shortly.
