It's just an issue of a teenager's priorities, and possibly a lack of discipline. If it's clean enough for them to use, then they just don't see the point in doing any extra work. Plus teens aren't the best long term planners, so realizing that it will eventually build up to be more of a chore they will be forced to deal with just often isn't on the radar.

And the teen brain continues well into the mid-twenties, as the whole "18 means you are an adult" is an entirely arbitrary concept not related to biology, which is why the number has been different in different eras, and even now isn't consistent across all places for all issues.
