11. How Much Conditioner Again?
“Use a dime sized amount of conditioner.” Right. Who writes on the back of these labels? Better yet, who is actually able to use a dime sized amount of conditioner? Washing the first time you follow the directions but then you feel your hair and it just doesn’t feel conditioned enough. After using an entire handful of conditioner it then becomes difficult to wash it all out. Well at least her hair is going to be super soft… she hopes. What if it’s weighed down from the conditioner?
After looking at the ingredients she starts to tell herself that maybe switching to paraben free or organic would be most beneficial and make her feel better. Every time she gets in the shower she tells herself this. She never does it as the products are outrageously priced and don’t work that well. They also smell like patchouli and kale–not something she likes.
Should she use the thickening tonic or lift spray post-shower? Firm hairspray or semi-firm hairspray to tease? Why are there so many products? She wishes she could be like the women that only use coconut oil on their hair—and for everything! Coconut oil for hair. Coconut oil to eat. Coconut oil for brushing your teeth. Coconut oil to clean their counters.
