We’ve all done it. Given an undeserving man chance after chance, practically begging for his love.
To those of you who just shook your heads and proudly proclaimed, “Not me.” The rest of us say, “Quit lying!”
It’s been a while since I’ve made a fool out of myself over love, unfortunately, not so in the beauty department.
With its slick, sexy packaging and intoxicating scent, I really wanted Pantene’s Relaxed & Natural Breakage Defense Deep Conditioning Mask to be my everything.
My stylist applied the mask to my freshly-shampooed hair and covered my head with a plastic cap. She then stuck me under the dryer for 20 minutes. After rinsing, drying and styling, my hair looked just fine (keep in mind a stylist is going to send you out the door looking decent), but it didn’t FEEL fine. It simply didn’t feel soft or moisturized, but the exact opposite.
I didn’t want to believe it.
So I talked myself into thinking it wasn’t the man’s… oops, I mean the mask’s fault and gave it another chance.
This time I did my own hair. Same mediocre results.
Finally, I got the message. My short-lived relationship with this deep conditioning mask wasn’t going to work out. So I opened the jar and took one last whiff of its heavenly scent, before tossing it in the trash.
If you still want to give it a whirl, I found a 7.7 oz jar of this conditioner for $4.99 in the hair care aisle at Walmart. Who knows? It was no good for me, but it might just be your hair happily-ever-after.
FYI - The deadline monster is looming so I’m headed into my writing cave. Basically, that means shutting off the WiFi and working on a computer with no internet access. So I’ll “see” ya’ll in about a week.
Oh, if you bust me at the library or Starbucks sneaking on the internet to buy something off Sephora.com, feel free to pop me in the back of the head and order me back to work!
