My hair, oh my goodness. It seriously looks like an electrocuted badger has been fastened to my head, but a real haircut would cost me a minimum of $25+tip, at least an hour of my time, and a 17 mile drive each way to the place with the $25 haircut that's worth getting.
Yeah, hi. I have 5 kids and only one car. Nice to meet you.
|not waves- dreadlocks, folks|
Meaning, of course, that I have been all set to hack my very own hair off using my very own untrained hands (hello? That's why God created YouTube tutorials, isn't it?), but keep stopping myself due to the fact that there is an infant attached to my chest and I've had very limited mobility and would hate to do something (else) that would make me cry. Anyway. So what's an electrocuted-badger-head to do when hubby takes 80% of the children away from the house for two hours?
At home deep conditioning treatment, of course!
"This is gonna be great. Super affordable and it'll work really well and I'll be like one of those girls on those Pantene commercials. Eva Mendez better watch out, yo!"
So I googled it and saw some recipe that called for mayonnaise, eggs, and olive oil. Well, I had no mayo. But do you KNOW what mayo is made out of? Eggs & olive oil. Nice try, makers of mayonnaise.
Note: if you are a postpartum nursing woman, this may or may not (WILL) look like something that's about to be delicious. And your tummy may grumble. Consider yourself warned.
Slap it on your head and cover it with
Then wrap the whole shebang in a towel for the ultimate in stylish stylishness:
Let it cook on your soon-to-be luscious locks for at least 30 minutes, then wash and condition as usual. When your hair dries it'll look.....
...exactly as terrible as it did when you started. Just look! Clearly taken after the shower, what with the new, clean shirt on and all. But the hair. The hair is still a total wreck! Cheap at-home conditioning treatment fail, folks. FAIL.
The bright side is that you'll probably have some eggs and olive oil still left in the bowl, and you can scramble them and eat away your sorrows.
What am I missing? Help!
