While I hesitate to use the word "perfect" in relation to beauty, when it comes to my hair, perfect is kind of what I'm striving for. After all, the better my hairstyle looks on the first go, the longer I can stretch it (thanks to dry shampoo, of course). Plus, if I'm going through the effort of washing and styling my locks, I expect them to look great and last as long as humanly possible.
