    Kerastase everything!! I resisted them for sooo long because of the price tag, but it works so well.
    I would also go to a salon to get my roots touched up. Bleaching my own hair is a pain in the ass, and no matter how slow I go or how good my lighting and mirror situation is, I always seem to end up with one or two little leopard spots. Plus in a salon they could add Olaplex 1+2 to my formula, which I can't get on my own.
    And I would try a Brazilian blowout at least once, to get that silky straight texture.

    At this moment in time (because I had already answered this before), I would do the exact same thing. Still shop frugally and maybe maybe I would buy some Kérastase and Davines items; but that's it.
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    I would get some hair implants to help with my balding hairline. O maybe just buy a really gorgeous wig.

    Cut it more often. Even when growing it out, I'd like to have occasional trims in a nice salon.
    Hair is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

    * buy more silk (I have 2 scrunchies and 2 pillow cases so far)
    *get a house-wide water filter system (but in this case I would have to buy my own house first )
    *get fancy hair cutting scissors (i have $40 sally’s ones that are fine)
    *try some top of the line conditioners, sustainable, plastic free, biodegradable and great for the hair. Or maybe hire a team to make a line like this super affordable and readily available. I do use bars already, but get the cheapest I can find and get on sale, 3 at a time, but have them shipped to me in tons of plastic
    *Maybe I would get highlights or balayage and pay for the olaplex, k-18, whatever I need to keep it from breaking… but maybe just once, cause bleach is bleach whether DIY or salon.

    A house wide filter or RO system would be fantastic. I'd go for really high quality extensions until I got past all the worst growout stages

    Oh boy, I had just two thoughts to start with:

    Pay someone to S&D for me

    Buy an Elymwold stick and try one of his forks (the main reason they're too expensive right now is because of VAT and postage, I don't think they are inherently expensive items, not like TT).


    Then I had further thoughts:

    Pay someone to wash my hair for me; it would save my arms and energy and I could do it more often. They could thoroughly scrub my scalp which would be great, and they can take their time and gently detangle and everything. I'm not keen on people touching my head or doing my hair but this would totally be worth it.
    - Commission someone to design a washing system that can easily accommodate my hair while I'm reclining in bed, save my whole body not just my arms, and obviously have that system installed.
    - Actually this hair person could enable me to try things like catnip rinses without exhausting myself.

    Move somewhere with soft water, ideally Wales or the Lake District. I could pay for my whole family to live there without needing to find new jobs - they could if they wanted to, but they wouldn't *have* to - and my hair and skin would be so happy. I could employ a chauffeur to drive (and I'd install an electric charger in the house, to have an electric car) so my parents don't have to worry about windy and hilly roads, although I should fund a cure for anxiety so my Mum can enjoy all the journeys instead of only sometimes. Again, they could still drive if they wanted but they wouldn't have to. And yes this move really did start with thinking about my hair people say water softening systems aren't as good as naturally soft water. I'd like my own chauffeur too so I can have my independence. And the hair person I hire would be able to saturate my hair in distilled water before going on the beach, then wash it immediately after which would mean I could get it wet in the sea without worrying!

    Get someone to formulate my holy grail conditioner - it would probably end up pretty much like a mix of the ones I currently use, with a custom range of scents (mainly rose and bergamot, I think).

    Get my two broken Jeter forks fixed.

    Commission someone to make flexi clips out of the ridiculous amount of supplies I have but don't have the energy for making. Then I could give them away completely free because I could cover the postage.

    I could try different shampoos to see if any higher end ones worked better than what I currently use, without worrying about them being a waste of money. And if they don't work, my hair person could find out if any shelters want them, again saving my energy.

    Try some different hairtoys that interest me, and then whichever ones don't work I can again give away for free.

    Put out an ISO for MapleBurl forks, not worrying about the value and customs charges.

    I could also go quite ruthlessly through my current hairtoys and be able to give away the ones I don't use, not worrying about getting any money back and being able to cover the postage. The hair person I hire could take the photos and write the descriptions for the post as well, saving me energy.
    - [This hair person is beginning to sound like a PA. I do need one, but the situation isn't right even if I could get the funding. Whereas if we moved and started over somewhere else, it would hopefully be fine.]

    Buy a Furnival helix.

    I'd probably commission some other forks from different makers as well.
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    Since I practice benign neglect and NW/SO I don't have "hair" expenses...

    I'd buy more fish to eat - or go to the local place that sells good fish dinners. I don't go often enough now because it costs so much and makes me crazy to spend half a week's food budget on one meal.
    Opting out of Friend Requests, thank you very much!

    I wouldn't change too much although I like the idea of having my own conditioner formulated. I'd probably stock up on conditioner first.

    I would also buy some expensive hairtoys that I can't afford. Maybe get expensive S&D scissors too.

    I'd go to a salon and have the galaxy colors professionally applied.
