So, here's how it goes... [Dec. 16th, 2010|11:02 am]

A new shampoo, trying to economize, and yeah, using it, I can tell it sucks. But, whatever. Except that by the time I get to work, take off the coat and scarf, my hair has decided to have Medusa-like static cling. I don't mind the flyaway part, but it keeps flipping up and clinging to the bottom of my chin. Which is unacceptable. I can't even wear a turtleneck, much less one of my own HAIR.

So, I pull out a Bounce fabric softener sheet, which I find to be way more handy than any anti-static spray, although it does have a propensity for making the Naproxen kept in the same drawer taste like Bounce. But whatever. I wipe the sheet quickly all over my hair and along my neck. And the sheet prompty snags on the spiraly part of my earring.

And, of course, that WOULD be the moment one of the VP's comes to ask me a question. I thought about just ripping the earring off, but went with "Yes, it's been THAT kind of a day already. What can I do for you?"

Excellent suggestion. I'd never tried Bounce and the static guard spray makes my asthma go all oh helllll no outta da pool.

and yet, somehow you make MedusaStaticHair sound sexy. How do you DO that?!

I was considering suggesting a dryer sheet, then got to the second paragraph.

Kudos on keeping your cool in a very awkward situation, though. :)

I use an expensive Aveda shampoo and inexpensive organic conditioner about every third or fourth day and in between I "wash" my hair with a 1/2 cup of baking soda plus warm water and after rinsing, rinse again with 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar plus warm water. Right now I'm using an Aussie leave-in conditioner but sometimes I add some Aveda leave-in conditioners, too. My scalp won't tolerate most shampoos and even the Aveda stuff can set it of. Now my scalp is happy, my hair is really happy, shiny and not too frizzy and only smells a little bit like salad dressing until is dries.

But I bet MedusaStaticHair is dang sexy on you so why change anything?
