So… I’ve read all the articles. Checked out all the blog posts, watched all the YouTube videos with suggestions for how to keep the hair in the Jones household looking glossy and luxurious. I’ve purchased all manner of hair oils, leave-ins, butter, puddings, magic beans, etc, in my quest for that goal.
With no luck. I would use all of that stuff, in all the 50 million different suggested combinations, with no luck. Anywhere from 20 minutes to a few hours after application, my kids were looking like they just rolled in from playing in the dust. Their hair would look THAT dry!
So this morning, I took a stand. I went into my closet and pulled out
Pandora’s Box the big box of hair products that I don’t use anymore, because they don’t work. From that, I retrieved a little clear jar with a white top.
Trusty old Blue Magic.
For years, YEARS, I tell you, little girls were getting their hair oiled with Blue Magic, and those heads were thriving, ok?
I moisturized Izzy’s hair with the As I Am leave in conditioner. Combed it in, detangled, all that good stuff. Then, I greased her scalp. Her first ever real scalp greasing. It was quite nostalgic, actually, but no, I didn’t pop her with the comb for not being still.
Anyway, after that, I brushed it in, and her hair felt wonderful. No hay-like feeling, no crunchiness. WONDERFUL. And now, 10 hours later, after we’ve played, and gone to the park, etc, it still feels wonderful! Zoe’s too!
I may be jumping the gun, but I feel like I’ve had an epiphany. All this time, the solution to the dryness problem that’s been plaguing me for the last two years seems to be solved. We shall see, but in the mean time?
We’re glossy over here!
