  Monday Morning Mirth  

from the lies my mother never told me file…


Part of Deep Spring Cleaning here @CHicKnits is the inevitable HairCut! What happens when you go PAY for the HairCut? You fall into the Product SinkHole that is right next to the cash register!

    Oh, yeah, I just remembered… treating it with mayonnaise on the ends (wrapping it in plastic wrap for a bit) and how could I forget the beer rinses!

    Lucille Ball was a “Henna Rincess”!! For some reason that was the first thing that popped into my head when I read your post. Long live the Product Whore, which is what I have sometimes been referred to by pervious stylists and colourists.

    we used the lemon juice rinse when I was a kid…it enhances sun-bleachedness. We were blonder than blond!

    Hey, what did that bottle just say about us brunettes? My french is a little rusty but– didn’t it say we’re fat??!!

    YIKES! I think they probably mean mainly brown?
