That, and I've been struck down by some sort of malevolent plague since Saturday evening so I can't really leave my room, lest I unleash it upon the rest of the student population.
The Cold Fairy has a wicked sense of irony.
Back to the actual subject of this post. The story goes like this:
Girl is wandering about town centre by herself (no adult supervision, tut tut). Decides to pop into TK Maxx (known as TJ Maxx in the States) to ogle at the shoes that will not fit her.
As usual, she drifts past the hair section, as she does in Every Single Shop she enters.
But something is different. There is...wait, does that bottle say Giovanni? By gum, it does! TK Maxx is stocking the entire Giovanni shampoo and conditioner range (though sadly, not the direct leave-in. *sniff*)
However, the price tag is £14.99. Yep, that's right, 15 squid for 1 litre of product.
The girl tries to talk herself out of it. After all, she's never tried any of them. What if she hates it? What if she goes bald?! And it's £15! That's a lot of food!
Knowing that cosmetic products are non - refundable, she fights with herself a little longer.
|Bed's not made because I plan on getting right back in there *cough, hawwwwk*
And then caves in the biggest way possible. Someone obviously forgot their Willpower for breakfast that morning.
I've used it a couple of times on my scalp, and I like it (THANK GOD), though it does dry the hair out, so it's NOT a moisturising shampoo. It clearly reads on the description it's purpose:
Shampoo should clean hair. Really good shampoo should make you tingle from head to toe. With tea tree triple threat shampoo, invigorating ingredients wash in rejuvenation while washing away the previous day.
You're left with something rich, something clean. Something incredibly stimulating...for hair and mind. Think about it.
No mention of hydrating, because that's not what it does folks.
The Wonder Thing's thoughts on it: "It's....minty.'
The Faerie has used some too, and although she agrees that it's slightly drying too, she likes it because it helped her get the newly earned sweat out of her hair.
Yes, I'm sharing product with other people - may I remind you that it's 1 litre. Of shampoo.
And even though I'm happy with it, and even though it's more cost efficient that buying 3 of the shampoo for the same price and getting less product.... I still feel that I will forever think of myself as the girl who spent £15 on shampoo. It has a pump, for goodness sake! Which makes using it in the shower a breeze but still...it unsettles me slightly.
It kind of says "Hey! Look at me! I have a pump! Someone's obviously crazy obsessed here!"
