72 hours without shampoo and all is well. I'm having a hard time believing the changes that I can already see. First, I'd expect to be a greasy mess, but I'm not. I would also expect my hair to be fairly flat by now but it's actually much more wavy and the waves start at the top of my head instead of the middle of my ears. And although I'm wavier, I don't have triangle head. Somehow, I have a lot more wave, but my hair is hanging straighter. Which sounds impossible, but apparently, isn't. Before, my hair would hug my head until it got to about my cheek bones, then it would suddenly triangle out away from my head Rosanna Danna style. Today, not a triangle in sight. Now, if I could only get that one section of bone straight bangs to curl.... And if said bangs would ever grow past the tip of my nose...
Oh, and if anyone is curious, instead of my normal $6+ bottles of Pantene shampoo & conditioner, I'm now using 84 cent Suave Naturals. 84 cents! Apple something scent. If this experiment actually works, I may end up saving enough money to pay someone to dye the 'old age blond' out of my hair.
On a totally different note, I'm sure the kiddo's are excited. Their school books finally arrived today.
I shouldn't say they "finally" arrived though. It makes it sound like we've been waiting and waiting. It's only been 9 days since I placed my order. Which is really not bad. Nine days for what I'm sure is a very busy homeschooling company (Rainbow Resource) to take my order, gather the books, box them, ship them and for the snail mail folks to deliver them to my door step. Not bad, not bad at all.
Have I mentioned how much I like Rainbow Resource? Well, that's a whole other blog. Or more like a blog series. I Love Rainbow Resource. If you are reading this and are new to homeschooling, stop reading immediately and go order yourself a catalog. And if you are some kind of freak of nature long-time homeschooler that doesn't know about Rainbow Resource, well, you should stop reading too. Their catalog is something like 1,500 pages. And yes, that's fifteen hundred. The decimal is not in the wrong place. And in addition to the massive quantity of products they carry, 99 times out of 100, they will have the lowest price. And best of all, when you get your package in the mail, the box will be covered in cute little stickers. Totally homeschooler style. The phone number to order their FREE paper catalog is 888-841-3456, or at least it is as of this writing.
