Back story to this post
I recently decided to get some help with refurbishing my old posts and had a really great conversation as a result. My helper who is a statistician actually brought it to my attention that most times you my lovely readers agree with my posts rather than disagree. There is currently only one post where the disagree button was used more than the agree button. Out of 150 posts that I have done, can you guess which one attracted most disagreement...............dum dum dum........... Hair Growth Myths.
The conversation (interesting bits only)
Me : People are not supposed to agree with me all the time
Helper (very posh** accent): Well, statistically they do
Me (bored of science talk): Why do you find that so interesting?
Helper: Perhaps it is because overwhelmingly the agree button is used over the disagree which makes this particular post interesting.
Me: Ok what is the post about?
Helper (clicks away): Ummm........hair growth myths
Me: Ah well, I could have told you that, I think if I had researched and found out something that actually does make hair grow faster, I think the response would be quite different.
Helper: That is a strange answer.
Me (laugh): Why is it strange?
Helper: Women are strange, give them an answer they don't like for free and they will not have it. Give them something in a bottle tag it with an unrealistic promise and they will spend limitlessly.
Me(pause for thought): Hmm
1. Why the hair growths myth post? Is it hard to believe that hair grows at pretty much a steady pace and diet, hair products etc would not affect this?
2. Do women place more value on a result over and above the facts (damage, breakage, bogus, hole in your pocket?
3. How much is the most you have spent on a hair product or procedure, would you do it again? What is a normal price to pay for a product?
Feel free to contribute your thoughts on any part of this post and definitely expect to see more polls and posts exploring this issue.
**In case you try to renact the conversation - A posh accent has a clipped sound like the Queen or Prince William. Victoria Beckham (otherwise known as posh) actually has what would be called a 'common' accent.
