Women: Slaves To Their Hair.

SCIENCE:

A whopping 650 days will be dedicated solely to creating a 'salon look' in her own bathroom. The average woman splashes out a monthly average of £10.08 on shampoos and conditioners, £14.03 on home styling products and £301.14 a year on haircuts and colouring.

She spends the equivalent of 41 minutes at home every day washing, styling and restyling. A third of women say their hair is the most important part of their appearance, and they spend more time styling their hair than doing their make-up.

The poll of 2,500 women was conducted by Boots in conjunction with the launch of the UK's first ever home lotion-based straighten kit.

Is anyone at all surprised by this? If so, you've never met a woman in your life.

Obviously, a woman with longer hair is going to have to spend more time on her coif than one with shorter hair. But regardless of length, women spend roughly 87 more hours a day on their hair than men.

Honestly, if I didn't have to shave, my total bathroom time would be on the order of three minutes. One minute to fill the bathtub, one minute to turn on the shower, and another minute pretending I'm in a submarine that got hit.

Speaking Of Submarines: Hey, look at this site-- a page dedicated to speeches in movies, including this one from Crimson Tide.

I can't believe they don't have Patton, though. . . sheesh, talk about an oversight.
