I just read a blurb on CNN.com that women who visit hair salons have a higher risk of stroke. I figured it must be something related to the chemicals used in salon, and since I don’t intend to start cutting my own hair I clicked to read the full story. Turns out, it’s actually tilting your head back to far in the shampoo bowl that could lead to a stroke. I mean, it’s rare, the story goes on to say. Like not as common as having a stroke during a chiropractic adjustment. Which is still really rare. But the salon thing is even more rare. Ok, like, it happened to this one lady.
I’m paraphrasing, of course.
I’ve been feeling recently that I’m not as in touch with the news as I used to be. Stories like this make me not miss it.
