1: give up all forms of chemical hygiene products as part of an alternate cancer approach.
2: discover that people wash their hair for a reason.
3: stick to your guns as your hair gets increasingly greasy.
4: think that you have reached a place of inner harmony and acceptance.
5: discover that sticking to your guns and accepting is much harder when your girlfriend can see you face to face instead of over a fuzzy video call.
6: try to ignore the constant comments like “do you think your hair looks a little greasy?” And “you could look really good if your hair wasn’t so… interesting”.
7: buckle under the pressure and agree to look into natural alternatives to shampoo.
8: question the wisdom of a shampoo made from lemon, green tea, and… olive oil? Surely that will only make things worse.
9: discover that it does indeed make things worse as you leave the house to go shopping with olive oil soaked, green tea flecked hair.
10: get left in the car by the girlfriend who is too embarrassed to take you with her.
11: blog about the experience in third person.
Goo one Jerome … then again, I had a flatmate once who swore by the olive oil treatment. (He didn’t though also use green tea and lemon!) What did them back in them thar days before chemicals do?
It is possible I did it wrong 😛 it is amazing how many “can’t live without” hygiene products are being introduced into a market that didn’t need them 12 months before.
I did a bit of research once and that’s how I came up with beaten egg for the wash and then vinegar to rinse/condition (and get rid of eggy smell). The vinegar alone might be enough, but then I really like the smell of it 🙂
vinegar is a good idea. Similar to the lemon juice in the other shampoo I have made but yet to try.
Back in them thar days they used lemon and water and in more recent times good old sunlight soap (I’m talking 1930’s). When I was too lazy to wash my hair (1970’s), I and my girlfriends used to sprinkle Johnson’s Baby powder on our hair-looked worse than the greasy mess it already was!
I think we thought it looked more blonde-no blonde jokes please.
haha, Amelia still does the baby powder trick. In the event I need a quick pick me up I will give it a go 😛
