At Susie’s request: Hair products

I’ll probably get some ridicule for this one, but it was requested by a hot girl, so I don’t care.  She wanted to know what hair products I use.  She wanted to know how my hair holds up so well under summer humidity and temperatures, such as those last night in Bardog’s basement, when a large gathering of people gave the air conditioner a challenge.  “I appreciate your hair’s performance the way you appreciate #tubetops,” she wrote on Twitter.  Now, in my world, compliments just don’t come any higher than that!

At the time I didn’t know… “It’s stuff in a tube,” I told her.  “I think Pantene may make it.”

Now that I’m home and have the camera, I can go into a little more detail.  Here’s a pic of the shampoo and conditioner I use.

Pantene Pro-V Restoratives, Breakage Defense is the name of the shampoo and conditioner.  I used to use the cheap stuff – the big $1.99 bottle of Suave I think – but every day, when I got out of the shower there’d be a small clump of hair near the drain.  I clearly wasn’t going bald, so I wondered what was going on.  I asked whoever was cutting my hair at the time, and he (I think it was Silver) said I needed to use better quality products.  It didn’t take long for me to get tired of paying $13 for a tube of shampoo or conditioner at his shop, so I found these premium Pantene products and they’ve worked well.  They sell for about $4 a tube at Target, not bad.

All right, with the hair post out of the way, it’s time to drink a beer.  Sunset Wheat on Fire Sale will work.  May stop by Bardog or Kooky later.
