Ok, I’m lame. I had a totally rad post planned for today. And then I got a bad cold (again! What’s up with this getting sick crap?). And I needed to make dog food (remember, that’s quite a process at our house). And I needed to pick up two of the bonus daughters (who were a big help with the homemade dog food thing) and they needed to be fed (they’re crazy like that – this needing to eat thing). So my awesome, totally rad post went right out the window. But fear not friends. I have a back up plan, as usual (and I’ll work the rad post into the rotation in a few weeks).
I had my hair colored and cut again this week (took another inch off!). I love a hair cut and my stylist is amazing at the hair color thing. My highlights look like I was born with them. But the hair nazi (as he loves to be called – he gets a huge kick out of it) always quizzes me on what I’m using on my hair to be sure I’m following his directions. Which are crazy. Or at least, I thought as much when I first started going to him.
You see, he wanted me (and still wants me) to wash my hair with cream shampoo. My very fine (but lots of it) straight hair. The very hair that can appear greasy if you look at it wrong. And not just any cream shampoo. Infomercial cream shampoo. Yup, he demands I use Wen.
When he first told me, I thought he was insane. Cream in my hair?! And I order it from the TV (I’ve since learned that you can order it from Amazon too)?! It will be a greasy mess. But he used it on my the first time he cut and colored my hair and I didn’t have to wash it again for three days. THREE DAYS! I had been able to go two days before with the help of some dry shampoo (which we’ll talk about another time, because I have one I LOVE), but never three.
So to recap, my hair nazi has convinced me to join a shampoo cult (ok, it’s not really a cult, but the stuff just shows up at my door every so often, which kind of freaks me out). But my hair? It’s never looked better! I now swear by it and won’t use anything else (except a clarifying shampoo every six weeks or so to get the minerals from our yucky water out of my hair). I love the smell of the Sweet Almond Mint! Like really love it.
So trust me on this one. Call the Wen folks and they’ll tell you which variety is the right one for your hair and just order it. You’ll thank me. And you’re welcome.
