As I was coming out of Wal-mart in the garden section, the very elderly Wal-mart greeter motioned for my receipt. I knew she was going to ask for it, ...duh? But without thinking, I'd stuck in my pocketbook. She said to me, "Oh, looks like you are going to be painting!" "Yes mam," I replied, as I bent over to sit both paint cans on the ground, attempting to locate the receipt. When the lady caught sight of the top on my head, she said, "Oh, it looks like you have already started!" ....."NO, I haven't, I just have really bad roots that are in dire need of a touch-up!" Well, I didn't actually say that to her, but that is what I was thinking! LOL!
So off to the salon I went Saturday morning, foregoing all but one beloved yard sale, to get my roots done! As I was sitting with my head over the wash bowl, ...processing, my SIL walked in. I proceeded to tell her about my slightly embarrassing experience at Wal-mart, in which she replied, "that was awfully rude of that lady!" Notice, that I made reference to her age at the beginning of the story. I can only hope that due to her age, she wasn't being rude in the least, but because of her eyesight, she honestly thought my roots were of the same dark paint I was purchasing! "smiles"
No, it isn't a display of products AT the salon, it is my stash....all the goo that goes in my hair!
Shampoo to maintain the color, one product to make it silky, while another gives it a healthy shine. One to lift my roots and keep them from drooping, another keeps the rest of my hair from frizzing. One to hold the style as I blow-dry it, and an extra hold once it is complete. Luckily I have "connections," and get my products half price! ;)
I would love to hear if you have any humorous "Hair Tales!" I'll share another with you later in the week! ...or how many products it takes to keep you going. How many of you remember what your natural color is??? LOL!
It may appear that I am high-maintenance, but really I'm not! :) I do my own nails!
Kevin you can get out of the floor laughing right this minute! LOL! ...please!
