Clearly, I’m going to carry 2 finished object reports into the New Year, along with a handful of UFOs – unfinished objects. I was hoping to do one of those FO reports today, but I don’t like the photos and have already worn the item enough I need to make a minor repair, wash & block and try again…
Anyway, our TV somehow decided that if I wasn’t going to watch Charmed re-runs yesterday evening, I should watch Phoebe – er, Alyssa Milano – on an infomercial. It was for Wen hair care. I’ve watched Wen on QVC and other infomercials before, and I’ve always been curious… but not convinced enough to pull the trigger.
Whom among you is a Wen girl? I have fine hair, but a ton of it. It is wavy at heart, but it’s long enough now it’s behaving… most days. The problem is, my roots get greasy, and I’m not having any success with dry shampoos. I’d like to not wash my hair every day, especially in the winter when my skin is desert-dry anyway. Between color enhancement and heated styling, the ends are dry, so again… I’d like to wash it less often.
I also have a sulfates problem, not just because of the color I’d like to preserve. I keep telling you, we live in podunk. In this case, that means we have a well (three and three abandoned sites, but who’s counting?!) and a septic system. The septic has had to be pumped once in my 16 years there (three days after the new heat pump was installed rather emergently, of course), and I’d like to get another 16 years out of it or more before we pump again.
Anyway, that’s my story and I’m hoping you have input. While I adore Phoebe/Alyssa, I prefer fewer degrees of separation on recommendations.
