Products I Enjoy #1 - Shampoo

So I always thought it would be fun to write about some of the great products I use on a daily basis. Think of these posts as my little contribution to the consumers of the world -- I feel I owe it to them since I don't really do the whole coupon/special deal/diaper giveaway thing. I will just write about things I love that haven't failed to meet my expectations (don't hold your breath, Kia Minivans...)

If you know me, you may be expecting a lot of entries about food. Touché. But this first item I'd like to feature isn't food. It's shampoo. But not just any shampoo...

If you look closely, you'll see that this is "special" shampoo. The product marketers over at Paul Mitchell probably worked long and hard at coming up with a name for this thing, and ended up going with the filler text the designer slapped in that space. Been there, done that.

At any rate, this shampoo really is "special." According to the lady that cut my hair back in November, this is the only kind of shampoo I should be using. "And you only need to use a little tiny bit each time, so it will last forever."

Yeah, whatever, I've been turning down upsell hair products at the "beauty shop" (as my mom called it) since I was 13. And yes, going to the "beauty shop" (i.e. Great Clips) at 13 is pretty much the lowest of low. You get to see your acne lit up in the mirror while you stare at yourself for a good 20 minutes. Nice.

Anyway, I fell for the sales pitch and decided to go for the Tea Tree Special. She was right! It has lasted 7 months so far, my hair feels great after a shower, and it does a nice little number on the dry scalp. But best of all? When I take a shower it feels like I'm bathing my head in melted York Peppermint Patties. Mmmm.

Maybe all these posts will be about food, after all.
