Kirishima, Japan: A man named Kirishma, who’s lived in Japan for nearly 40 years, decided to stop taking his hair down.
“I just didn’t want to live in a world where people would have to wear plastic surgery to get a haircut,” he told The Verge.
His decision was to ditch his hair straighteners and instead use the hair shampoo he’d been using for decades.
In Kirishama’s words, the shampoo, which costs around $50, “can save a lot of money.”
So, Kirishika began using a natural hair shampoo that contains vitamin D, calcium, magnesium and zinc, which he’d previously been taking as prescribed by his doctor.
It’s an expensive product, Kirshima says, but he’s used it regularly for about a year.
The results have been dramatic: He’s reduced his average hair length to just over 1.5 inches, which, for a man of his age, is quite remarkable.
And it’s not just his hair that’s changed: He also lost a bit of weight.
So much so, that when Kirishime returned to Japan after a five-month vacation to visit his family, his new hair was noticeably darker.
He says it took about a month to regain his hair, and he still doesn’t think his previous hair would have looked this good without the help of the hair products.
Kirishama also discovered that he’s able to keep his skin looking healthy by using a lot more sunscreen, which helps keep his hair from becoming too shiny.
But even though Kirisham has taken drastic steps to save money on his hair in Japan, he’s also made sure to keep a few things in mind when it comes to the things that make life so difficult.
For example, Kiryas family has a small pool of money in the bank, so Kirishya can afford to buy expensive shampoo for his friends and family.
On top of that, Kiryu says, he tries to keep to a strict diet to help keep his health.
Finally, Kirryas family also has a good sense of humor, which allows him to laugh at the challenges that face him when it come to hair removal.
