I hate when I do stuff like this. I needed to buy shampoo today. I know someone out there is probably going to think “Sheesh! She’s sure obsessed with her hair this week,” but this isn’t really about shampoo or my hair. It’s not about what’s on my head but about what’s in it, which apparently isn’t much.
I hardly ever buy the same shampoo twice in a row. I like to try different shampoos because I keep hoping that one of them will make my hair look just like that of the models in the shampoo commercials – smooth, silky, not a hair out of place. So I spent a long time reading shampoo bottles. I noticed a L’oreal “volumizing” shampoo that said “sulfate free”. I think maybe what really attracted me was the shiny green tube it came in. I guess sulfate is supposed to be bad now. I don’t know if it really is or not but I know I can pronounce it. I could not pronounce a single ingredient in this shampoo. Well, maybe one – water.
I also looked at Aveeno volumizing shampoo. The bottle isn’t as pretty but I can pronounce more of the ingredients. And other Aveeno products I’ve tried have all been satisfactory. I went back and forth between the Aveeno and the L’oreal for a while. Both are also supposed to strengthen your hair too. Eventually I decided to get the Aveeno.
And when I got home and was putting stuff away I realized that it’s not shampoo; it’s conditioner. Doh! So I still need shampoo. (Not urgently, thank goodness; I still have enough to wash my hair one or two more times.) I really hate when I do stuff like that.
