It might sound ridiculous, but hair care can be a lot of work. People who have frizzy hair usually need longer to get ready. They can’t just roll out of bed and leave because they need a hair dryer and lots of patience.

Lily and Jessica are discussing the basics of hair care. Read on to find out who’s a slob and who’s not in today’s English lesson about hair.

No. I don’t think Lily is a slob. I like her style.  The easier the better.


   It  is just the difference of living habits and customs  between Lily and Jessica. Some ones like simple life and others like go through channels. Some ones pursuit beauty and then willingly spend time and money on it.  Others don’t. 


   My life likes Lily’s.



   But I know some ones like Jessica who spend long time on delicate makeup every day . It seems that it couldn’t go out without fine makeup.  I understand that just as you won’t get into the next unless finishing what are doing especially what you love doing.

Well I think Lily is not a slob, It’s just that she doesn’t need to spend as much time as Jessica because she doesn’t have curly hair. Curly hair requires special treatment and that means more time. It’s good lo look put together even though sometimes it might take more time than you expect.


My type of hair is wavy, so I need little time to diffuse it. It’s easy to put together,I really like it.

Lily and I are on the same page. Of course she is not a slob and even better she looks great. Beleive it or not the last time i used a hairbrusher came back when i was 16 years old and now, i’m 27. Only thing what I do in the morning is to change my clothes and rool out of my bed. Indeed, I take pride in my appearance.

Maybe  I’m a slob cause I never  get up earlier every morning  to diffuse my hair :) All I do is  just brush them up and fix then  with a  clasp pin or with a band.Really, it takes less time for me  than to put  on some make up on my face :) But it doesn’t mean, that I neglect my hair care, it’s  not so !  To be honest,  my curls are what I’m proud of :)

I understand Jessica’s situation, but she should use some chemical products on her hair, for example, like Brazilian Blowout; that would make her hair less curly, less frizzy , messy and she wouldnt have to spend so much time doing her hair at morning.

Tip : If you really want to save some time, pick out an outfit the night before. This helps you get ready even quicker in the morning! :-)

I cannot say if Lily is a slob or not, it will depend in how much she has to do to look put toguether. I have friends who don’t spend much time getting ready and they look great becuase of the kind of hear they have or something like that. But I also have friends who spend a lot of time because they have curlie hair, have to use special creams, etc. So it depends in how much care you have to take in order to look well.


In my case, I don’t spend much time getting ready. Since I have short hair, I just apply gel to my hair and give it a nice style jeje!

It is useless to take care of my hair at all. It is so… soft and straight. It is no use diffusing or arranging my hair… But on the other hand I don’t have to spend a lot of time to get ready in the morning :-)

I think Lily is a slob, She should wasch her face, brush her hair and teeth. That is the basic in my point of view. Jessica is right in taking care of her appereance. As man for me is very easy take care of my hair, after shower I just brush it, as simple as that…...But my wife is like Jessica. She spent a lot of time on her hair….

When I immediately roll out of bed, the first thing to do is to brush my her, I’m put together.
