A 2nd mortgage......for shampoo

I finally got in to get my hair highlighted and cut. Very sweet of Tony considering I totally forgot when my appointment was and called to ask him, 1/2 hour after I missed it. But he forgave me, and didn't even take it out on my hair :)

However, I have been a tad lax in getting out and getting shampoo and conditioner. Not that I do not have any in the house. I have a "hair product graveyard" full of enough shampoo and conditioner to fill my pool. I just don't like them. So I pawn them off on Drew, who shaves his head bald, so they end up in the guest bathroom.

So last week after I realized that no matter how much I shook the conditioner bottle- it was empty- I ran downstairs and raided the bathroom. The only matching products- Suave (eek). Needless to say I got quite a STERN lecture today about that crap ( yes- I am a product snob).
So we walk over to the case to buy the Bumble and Bumble shampoo and conditioner that he used once on me and I looooved. Quite misleading since they should have it locked up behind bullet proof glass.




$25.00




PER bottle




PER 8oz bottle. (little factoid- a can of Coke is 12oz)




Note to self #4- Spending $50.00 on 16 oz of shampoo & conditioner could land me in divorce court. PUT THE BOTTLE DOWN!




So off I slumped to the "value" section ($26.00 total for Big / Sexy Hair Soy Milk).
On a good note- I did come home and weigh myself- down another 1.5 pounds (probably from shitting my pants after finding out the price)

Thanks for your comment on my blog. It gives me so much hope knowing that your baby C was given the same diagnosis and is sleeping soundly in the next room. ^_^
Your babies are sooo adorable, you are such a lucky mommy to have three little ones!

no, i do not have triplets but i can relate to this.
i am a product snob too. i blame my first born and her career choice. the fact i can't get out too often to have my hair done proper-like, i blame all the other stuff in my life that i must juggle. the fact that i can't afford the product i crave/need i would say is because of the five clowns in my circus act here. for them i will suffer.
i'm glad i found your blog. i'll be back.

I used to be a total hair product snob. Now I just get the Costco Vat O' Shampoo, thanks to the thought of paying for 4 college educations.

Joselle- Did you know that the mark up on that shampoo is 100 percent? Did you know I get all mine for WHOLESALE? Muhahahahahaha

Nice going on the 1.5 pounds! I can't wait to get a load of you at our next dinner. Oh wait, I won't be at the next dinner because I'll be in MANHATTAN without any KIDS!!! Man, I'm so sad. LOL!
