Only 7 Percent of Women Love Their Hair

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Dove just released the results of a survey they did entitled Make Friends With Your Hair. It sounds like they picked a good title, because only 7 percent of respondents said that they "love" their hair. Here are a few of the other stats:

·58 percent of women use more than three hair products a day (do tools like blow dryers and straighteners count in this?)
·20 percent of women say that they have skipped a social function because of a bad hair day
·45 percent of women say that their hair routine is more important in the morning than breakfast, and 35 percent say they'd rather get their hair looking great than nab a few more minutes of sleep

And this, everybody, is yet another reason why I love hats.
