This Makes Sense

I only like to wash my hair on Wednesdays and Sundays, which is why I am thankful for "PSSSSST!"

Don't look at me like that. It makes perfect sense.

No, really stop it. I am NOT crazy. Did my husband tell you I was crazy? Because there are plenty of things I could tell you about him.

Okay, I'll explain.

Since my hair has gotten longer (epically long in my opinion, but that's another story), I have cut down on how often I wash it so it doesn't become a static cling nightmare. I have figured out that if I wash it every three days then I don't look like Yahoo Serious, or an oil slick. Because I work at the crack of dawn, I prefer if only one of these days falls on a weekday.

My plan would be perfect if there were only six days a week. Damn Saturday.

In my previous world Saturday meant either washing, and then washing again on Sunday to set the schedule right, and the static balance of my hair wrong; or NOT washing, and looking like a walking rendition of the gulf coast following the BP spill.

Then, I discovered "PSSSST!"

No, it's not a spy firm, or a porn firm, or a compressed air firm. It's a dry shampoo. Several sprays on Saturday means I don't have to wash my hair, and no one thinks I am going to ask them for money. Oh, and my schedule stays in tact.

See? It makes sense. Right? When I told my husband about it he asked me if I also like to drive slow on the driveway and if I buy my underwear at K-Mart. You don't think that though, do you?

Do you?

Oh, god, you do.

I haven't tried dry shampoo yet but I've had a friend who's been trying to get me to do it for years. I wash on about the same frequency as you do.

I think I'm a Tuesday and Friday girl. Sunday is a toss up. That might be my dry shampoo day.

I am not going to admit that this OCD stuff is hereditary, just ask you where you get PSSST, as Luke's "day on/day off" schdule gets me crazy, when there is an extra day.

I've given up bathing all together. Doncha wanna smell my feet?

Also? I haven't thought of Yahoo Serious in a gazillion years. 20 points for that wicked obscure reference.

I wash my hair once a week.


I wear a cap all the time, so no one can tell it's filthy!

My baby fine, thin hair has to be washed daily whether I want to or not. Even when it's longer. I am a crazy sleeper, and no amount of anything will get my "fraggle" hair to lay down the correct way.

One of the only things I miss about having long hair is having to wash my hair every day now. I used to be able to do the twice-a-week thing, too. I cut my hair super short a few months ago, and every day, I wake up and hope I can just let it go, but I apparently sleep with spider monkeys who paw through my mane while I sleep and they leave it so I look crazy when I wake up. I have a cabinet semi-full of dry shampoo cans and, I'm not even kidding, I sometimes stroke them lovingly and ponder growing my hair back out.

Man ... I didn't know they still made Pssst! Do you still have Tab out there too? If so, I'm moving west.

I'm an every other day type of girl and I wish there were only 6 days to the week too!

And God has entrusted you with a female child to give tips on grooming? Just sayin'...

I'm on pretty much the same schedule-Saturdays are either ponytail or hat day!

Today I made everyone in my family wash their hair with the flowery scented hand soap from the downstairs bathroom. Only because the Walgreens has limited parking and i wasn't waiting for a space JUST so they could have clean hair.
Anyway, I'm off to find the PSSST. That sounds like the code name for some sort of stress disorder.

What's wrong with KMart underwear? ;)

I've never used dry shampoo, but I'm SO curious! My hair ends up in a ponytail more than I'm willing to admit.
