Grandma story...

unicyclistunicyclist Posts: 181Registered Users
So my grandmother is very, very nice and is quite generous. She's always buying me products, haha, even though I insist that she doesn't need to. She also gives me advice, but I don't exactly agree with it. She says conditioner is totally unnecessary and all you need is a good, high-end shampoo. She got me a sample of Biolage Shampoo (which has sulfates/cones.) I was going CG, and she said she didn't want me using anymore conditioner and just to use the Biolage poo.

Anyway...
Today I saw her, and this was after I did an ACV rinse, conditioned with KCKT, and styled with KCCC. I asked her how my hair looked and told her I used the Biolage (even though I really didn't :rolleyes:)
She said it looked awesome! Hahahaha. I kind of feel bad for lying, but she told me it looked so much better. Just thought it was funny.

    Glad your hair turned out well, but shame on you for lying. Now she'll go out and buy you a huge bottle of it!

    Hahaha! I hope she won't! AHHH. I'd feel so bad. If she does that, I'll...

    I'll return it to the store then use them $ to buy her a present. Win-win! :mrgreen:

    Oh dear, she might get you more of that shampoo now.
    I guess it's too late to make your hair look dry and poofy and tell her it's cause of the shampoo.

    I don't blame you for doing that! That might have been the only way to get an honest, unbiased answer out of her on how your hair actually looks! I'm sure it made her feel happy at the end. I find that trying to sway my own Grandma's mind is an impossible task, so I don't blame you for not trying to prove her wrong!

    I sympathize... My grandma is the one who tries to push shampoo on me the hardest...
