So, I took today off and worked outside in the garden. I have long curlyish hair, and usually after a day stuffed into the top of my hat, it comes in dried out and Brillo-like.
So, I have a thought–people put oil on their hair as a conditioner–why don’t I just put a little cooking oil on my hair, and have an instant hot oil treatment! Hair stays put, and gets silky, to boot.
So, I slather my hair up, stick it in the hat, and out I go. Bonus: I smell like a pizza!
Works great–hair is not all dried out when I come back inside 5 hours later.
I shampooed my hair, and the oil is still there.
In fact, I don’t think I have ever been this greasy in my entire life. I’ve cleaned my neck with alcohol several times, because it’s driving me crazy. I’m just going to stick a towel on my pillow, and hope it comes out tomorrow before I go to work.
Looks like I’ll be wearing my hair in a French braid for the foreseeable future….
I thought I would share this, in case you happened to be considering a similarly brilliant idea.
The photo is what’s blooming in the garden right now; and the post title is what I am going to call my autobiography, whenever I get around to writing it.
