I've recently gone CG and I've had my first Deva CG haircut! It was a fantastic moment and I'm definitely happy for finding a salon that understands my hair type.

The bad news...
My cut cost $60. I've never had a cut over $30, and since I'm only 15, my parents are obviously supporting me in my financial needs (haha, nice way of putting it, I think!). My dad doesn't at all understand the importance of taking care of my hair. When he found out about this website he thought I was being narcissitic!
How can I explain to him that taking care of my hair is something important, and not some self-indulgent thing?
And when I need to get my haircuts, how can I convince him to let me go to that salon again?!
Thanks!! Any answers welcome
