The Psychology of Hair

Last weekend, while walking with my fabulous friend and her nine-year-old daughter, I was called in to "co-parent" (I love that my friend refers to me as that - such a privilege and so generous!). You see, for the first time in her life, little Miss Nine wanted to cut her very long and luscious, thick brown hair which virtually touches her bottom it's that long! The girls at school all have hair just below their shoulders and her mum worried that perhaps the only reason she wanted to cut her hair was to be like everyone else.

Earlier this year, six-year-old Scarlett (she's 7 now!) wrote to us at The Psychology of It asking a very important question - "Why do people live if they're only going to die?"

You can see it here.
