Friday, a friend offered me the rare chance visit a local factory that produces high-end hair care products. Since they are an employee, they were able to get me into their 'seconds' area, where a tote-FULL can be purchased for $5.
|Let me give you some background info here so that you can fully appreciate this whole scenario... (I'm NOT bragging, mind you, I'm just REALLY LUCKY!! and it's a good thing, because I'm REALLY LAZY when it comes to my hair!) *My hair tends to be on the long side (around shoulder to mid-back length) - short hair would require more than an annual or semi-annual trim to maintain a 'style', plus I wouldn't be able to just pull it back into a pony-tail or braid it on mornings when I was running late! *Being almost 45 and of natural light-streaked hair I have never colored (okay, in the 80's I did do a neon orange thing with my rat tail, but we don't have to go there!) or highlighted my hair - and have only found (and promptly pulled!) one Grey. *Through friends I found this Great Lady who cuts hair out of a salon in her house for..... $5 !!! |
Getting the picture??
LOW MAINTENANCE... NO FRILLS, What-so-Ever!!
So, that is me. J is 'hair-challenged'... need I say more? Yet, he is pickier (sp? word?) about his shampoo than I am! My main splurge is on 'Leave in conditioners'. SO - I filled a bag with each 8-) !! There were names there that I had never heard of (Ion? Joico? Kpak?), but an aisle over was a Factory Sales Rep doing their thing for a 'potential customer', so I eavesdropped, and learned more about hair products than I EVER needed to know!!!
I DID make sure to go find some of these MINARDI line that they were talking about ;-)
