Hairy Issue

I’m not sure what’s happened.

Besides turning 40, working full-time, and having kids – absolutely nothing has changed about me.

Except my hair. Actually this is not my hair. This is brillo that started growing on my head about a decade ago.  The hair that I was born with has left the building. I shrug and pretend not to care – while being totally and completely obsessed with it (sound familiar? story of my life?)

Last year – I found gray brillo.

So I decided to take the leap and get my hair highlighted – something to jazz myself up a bit.

You will or won’t be shocked to find out that coloring your hair results in über brillo hair. Who knew?

Apparently everyone but me knew. So I’ve been on a mission to debrillo.

I’ve tried expensive shampoos, deep conditioners – I’ve slapped on the Keratin, the agave, the coconut oil.

If you are my husband reading this – I’ve spent almost no money on all this. If you are everyone else reading this – I’ve spent a small, compact, American made car’s worth of money on it.

I think I’ve found it. IT. Actually – two its.

First of all – you can buy whatever shampoo/conditioner you want. . I think that all shampoo is the exact same.  And if you think it’s different or have proof otherwise, please don’t tell me.  I use a 2in1 in the shower – come out and use this little baby. About the size of a quarter’s worth worked through my hair. Smell it once – you’ll be hooked. It’s like my hair’s true soul mate. They belong together. I meant to take a picture when it was still full – but I use it fanatically.

Then, after you Biosilk it – but before you blowdry/iron/tease/shellac – spray this baby on.  You don’t tease your hair? You aren’t a 60’s housewife? Stop trying to edit this blog please – and read on.

And it really is a 10. It’s perfect in every way.

My hair isn’t what it used to be pre-kids, pre-marriage, pre-life … but it’s better. It’s less heavy-duty scrub pad.

    I will buy both products!! I too have a brillo pad on my head. I have seen the Biosilk, but where do you get the “It’s a 10?” I haven’t seen that product before…
