Sunday night we celebrated my sister’s birthday. On each of our birthday’s, we exchange presents. It is a tradition we have had for a long time.
My gift to her was a clutch purse. Her gift to me was a collection of “product.” Some of them I have had before and love. Some were new to me, including this “hair gel.”
Monday morning, after I got out of the shower, I decided to use the new gel. She gave me two bottles of this gel. I snagged one from the gift sack and rubbed a dime size amount into my wet hair. I thought to myself how good it smelled–much stronger smelling than most gels I have every used.
As I began to dry my hair, I started to notice that my hair was acting dirty. It was hard to dry and stayed greasy where I had put the gel. I shrugged it off as “how it is supposed to be.” When I finished drying my hair, I pulled my hair back in a clip so that I could apply my make-up. When I removed the clip, however, my hair seemed to stay in place. It looked like I had not washed my hair in a week.
Fantastic. Getting back in the shower was not an option. And so, Monday was spend with hair that did not move much and looked super weird. I kept it in a ponytail and tried to forget about it. Everytime I would touch my hair, I would get a little grossed-out.
P.S. The stuff works great as shampoo. I am loving it!
