the real poo .
the moment you walk out of the hairdressers you feel great. you know your hair is hot, and you’ve just gotten used to your face after staring at it too for long in the mirror, so you probably think you’re hot too.
so you flick your hair, strut away confidently and check yourself out in the reflections of the glass as you walk to whatever destination that calls.
you can feel the softness of your hair flowing around you and smile smugly to yourself as it brushes your shoulders and your face. you are beautiful.
unfortunately, for some reason, this feeling will not last.
i’ve never understood the reason for it, but after your next wash your hair is no longer as soft and beautiful. nor is it in the same place as the hairdresser placed it, leaving you without the extremely hot hairstyle that you walked out with. in fact, it leaves you with you, only missing that feeling.
personally i have been disappointed many times by the aftermath of a haircut. probably every single time. i never seem to be able to get my hair back to the state it was in when i walk out of the hairdressers, except when i walk out of the hairdressers.
i wonder if it’s all a ploy to get you going back.
but i don’t understand! what’s the secret? is it their shampoo? is it their conditioner? is it their special blowdry? or is it just something in your head, like a placebo, that tells you you’re hot but there’s really no difference?
if it’s the first two, will i start investing in salon shampoo and conditioner (which is extremely expensive)? and if it’s the last one…
who cares. i like that feeling.
