Have you ever gone to a salon to have your hair cut or styled and had the stylist tell you, "You really ought to use a better product on your hair."
"Better product?" I echo.
She nods vigorously. "Your cheating your hair by using cheap products."
Cheating my hair? Really? My hair wouldn't know what to do with "better products." It's accustomed to the cheapest products on the market. In fact, I don't use "product." Product implies fancy creams and shampoos in fancy containers.
"It's okay," I tell her. "My hair's menopausal. It's been cheated on for years."
