So, I was getting a replacement ID the other day, and the woman taking my picture was this old chinese lady with a very heavy accent. She commented on my giant, frizzy hair how she loved it, how it was so alive (Yeah, it’s an entire entity – side story: So, back in the day when I would go out to the crowded bars of Pittsburgh with all my friends, I would make sure my hair was giant. Like super-giant. Like the ’80′s called me up and wanted their hair back and I said suck it ’80′s giant. And I would walk around fluffing my giant hair in people’s faces saying, “Excuse us….EXCUSE US!” Meaning me and my giant hair.)
Anyways, so this old chinese lady was telling me about how she used to have a perm and she would do a —– rinse and it would condition it better than any conditioner one could buy. Even the expensive stuff. But I couldn’t quite make out what she was saying. I got that you put a little —– in a tall glass, fill the rest with water and then rinse before you get out of the shower. I got that you could buy it at the grocery store, a big container, super cheap! Okay, okay….can you write that down for me? You know, so I don’t forget it. What, I never used —– before? No, No I never have. Well, what do you put on your salad?
OHHHHHHHHHHHHH, vinegar! Oh yeah, of course….I ummm mix it with oil…am I supposed to put oil in, too? By this time, I totally get it and am just trying to cover up the fact I didn’t know what we were talking about for the past ten minutes. But lo and behold, the old chinese lady’s ancient wisdom finally sunk in and let me tell you:
Rinse. Your. Hair. With. Vinegar.
Just a little mixed with water. Like your salad. Except no oil. Oh, and no lettuce and other vegetables, either.
