Aussie Hair and “Sh*t Girls Say” want women to ditch the drama

Women have complained of bad hair days for decades, and now a new survey shows that hair drama has a big impact on all areas of life, from parenting to social activities to even personal safety. According to an Omnibus survey conducted by Aussie Hair, 69% of women admit to refraining from certain activities – such as rolling down the car window or wearing a helmet – to protect their hair. Through the release of a new video from “Sh*t Girls Say” star Graydon Sheppard, Aussie is encouraging women to #DitchTheDrama and spend less time and energy on their hair and more time living life!

Tress Stress

The Aussie #Hairprobs Survey uncovered insights into how women really feel about their beloved ‘do’s and how this tress stress affects them: they make social sacrifices, run late and sometimes miss out on enjoying fun activities.

  • Women run late an average of one day per week due to hair drama
  • One third of moms (35%) say their hair requires more time than getting their kids ready in the morning
  • 40% of women under 40 cried at least once over their hair in the past six months
  • Seven percent of women admit to avoiding getting intimate altogether to preserve their hair style
  • Women spend 20 minutes per day on their hair, translating to a full work week each year

High Mane-tenance Hair Humor

To bring the drama of these #hairprobs to life and inspire women to kick them to the curb, Aussie is unveiling a new video from Graydon Sheppard, creator and star of the “Sh*t Girls Say” video series, to show the comical scenarios that result from hair drama. Featuring the return of Sheppard after a two year hiatus, the new video, “Sh*t Girls Say About Hair” is designed to spark conversation around how complex hair routines can get in the way of living life to the fullest and inspire women everywhere to #DitchTheDrama and get back to soaking life up.
