Hello again, my first two posts seem to have gone down pretty well so I guess you are going to be stuck with my musings and ramblings for the foreseeable future. Well on manly Monday’s anyway. Apologies for the delay in getting this post up, let’s just pretend it’s a Monday. In the last post, I dealt with moisturising cream, this time I’ll be discussing some products for the hair and scalp.
For some strange reason a couple of months back my scalp got horrendously dry and itchy. I had never had this issue before, even whilst on roaccutane. Even the temperamental hormonal years didn’t affect my scalp so I was perplexed as to why all of a sudden it decided to act up. I also tend to wear a lot of black and dark coloured clothes, so the flaking and dandruff was extremely noticeable.
Instead of heading down to the local supermarket in search of some head and shoulders, I decided to have a secret rummage through Avril’s stash of hair care goodies. SHHHHHHH!! I had just attended a blogger event organised by the Irish Bloggers Association a few days previously with herself. I had sat dutifully at the bar, drink in one hand, phone in the other, as wifey mingled with companies and other bloggers. After some time she appeared back and plonked some products called Mane n Tail in front of me. It was the anti-dandruff version of these products that stood out to me from the stash. I looked pensively at the big bottle, studying the label which had silhouettes of horses on it and thought feck it, if this stuff was good enough for horses flowing locks it’s good enough for me.
Next I had a dig around for some conditioner. I had been chastised by my barber for not conditioning my hair. Supposedly, it’s not the best idea in the world to just use the same hair and body shower gel, who would have thought! Choosing a conditioner was tough. So many options. I sniffed my way through a few possible contenders. The conditioner that eventually caught my eye and nose was a small sample sized bottle called Sebastian Pentrait and had actually, so I was later informed, been a part of that month’s look fantastic box. Don’t get me started on those monthly beauty boxes.
