Know what I don’t have time for sometimes? Well, lots of things. Cooking dinner. Pooping. Eyebrow waxes. But today we’re talking about shampooing.
Yes. Sometimes I don’t have the extra 10 minutes it takes to shampoo. Mostly, though, I just don’t because I’m lazy. Also because I’m trying to grow out my hair and I read that you shouldn’t shampoo every day, and that’s a good enough reason for me.
Know what, though? Hair gets gross after a few days. Enter the amazing Jillee.
I’m seriously not picking on Jillee here. I know I tried her frozen yogurt dots and they didn’t work for me, but you all know that when stuff doesn’t work on this blog, the blame can sit squarely upon the tester, not the pin. Plus, Jillee is forever posting super-pinnable stuff on her blog.
So, yesterday I decided to try this… after I went on a 20-minute wild goose chase for the empty spray bottle I knew was somewhere in the goddamn house.
I was sorta right. It was in the garage. Yeah, I don’t know either.
To get started, I dumped the corn starch in the bottle. Or, well, tried.
In hindsight, mixing it in a bowl would have been the better choice. Don’t judge me. I was tired.
Anyway, I applied liberally and then blow-dried my hair. Keep in mind that at this point, my last shampoo had been three days earlier.
Much to my amazement, it totally worked! Reviews from people I saw and asked included, “Fluffy!” and, “Uh, it looks normal to me.” Also, today (a day later), it still looks good.
Sure, it smells a little bit bad. I mean, it has alcohol in it, so you know. My sister-in-law suggested using vodka instead of rubbing alcohol. Then I would just smell like me, so that could work.
Anyway, I’m keeping a bottle of this around because, honestly, I think it even works better than the actual dry shampoo I bought from the store. Jillee FTW.
