Dirty Little Secret

Alternatively Titled: Clean Little Secret

I should not be sharing this little secret about myself.  Its not like I need to give anyone else another reason to think I am totally weird.

I just could not resist sharing this with you.

I have been doing something for about 20 years now. 

Yes, I started when I was still in the womb. 


I read the directions on shampoo bottles.

A normal, well reasoning person would have deducted that they might not need to read the directions at all, as applying a soap based product to your hair is a fairly simple process.  But even if they did want to reinforce accuracy, surely once or twice would have been enough.

Not me.  I read every single bottle I buy, and sometimes more then once. 

In my normal practice of things, I decided to try out this new (to me) brand at Target.  I try to go organic whenever possible, and when that cannot be done, make sure it is at least free of parabens. 


When I turned over the little guy to soak up the directions like a good book, I discovered this.



Shampoo daily on wet hair while singing.

And you know what?

I did.

It never felt so good to be weird.

    You know what?? I do too! I also do some deep thinking over the “repeat if necessary”!!! What a fun shampoo bottle!!

    That is awesome!! I am going to try giving my kiddos directions like that with the normal, “put on your pjs, brush your teeth, and dance into bed.” Sounds delightful!

    You’re so very obedient! Just think about how many people that do read that don’t actually sing!

    If you like to go for chemical free, have you ever tried shampoo bars? Here is a place with super high quality ones at the best price… http://applevalleynaturalsoap.com/
    I started using them almost two years ago and I will never go back to bottled shampoo. My hair looks better and it is cheaper than the spendy organic shampoos and you can use them as soap too.

    That is awesome! 🙂 I’m a directions-reader, too!

    Now I’m just sure my shampoo does not have singing in the directions. But I sing anyway. And, yes, it does feel good. *grin*
    Glad to be weird ‘with’ you.

    You crack me up. I read every bottle, too 😉 My philosophy product bottles are usually my favorites.
    P.S. Yes TO carrots is my favorite shampoo and conditioner. EVER. I honestly hated it at first, but then it transformed my hair.
