Paige Gozon, 16, has gone viral thanks to her incredibly greasy and dirty hair.
“Greasy hair check,” says the North Carolina-based social media sensation in a TikTok video set to ABBA’s “Waterloo,” where she displays the oil that has accumulated on her scalp after not washing it for eight years 😖
The video has gotten over 590,000 likes — a significant portion of the 3.6 million likes she’s racked up on the social media network.
“It originally began as a defiance against my parents. They would make me wash my hair every night, and like the naïve 8-year-old I was, I just saw it as any other boring chore I didn’t want to do. Eventually, that defiance became a habit,” she says. “After a few weeks going unwashed, it basically turned into a game to see how long I could go. After a year, I simply declared it was my lifestyle. I really did embrace it.”
From January 14, 2012, to January 14, 2020, the teen fully refused to clean her hair as an act of rebellion and she proudly includes the fact in her TikTok bio.
