How To: Gross Yourself Out

by Shannon

Hot tip for all the new moms out there: don’t collect all the hair you lose in the shower each day just to see how much you lose in a week. It will not be pleasant.

Hair, there, and everywhere.

How To: Find Trust In Your Friends

by Shannon

Just observe the insane amount of hair you’re pulling out in clumps, as you’re 15 weeks post-partum. Ha, you thought the hair loss stories were just jokes, but it turns out your friends are legit, and you are now balding.

Now, go apologize to them and buy yourself a steak (get that iron, girl).

Hair today, gone tomorrow.

What’s Yo’ Beef #44

When you don’t know how much dry cleaning costs so you get a Groupon thinking you will save money, and in the end you actually lose $3 because it’s SO EFFING CHEAP! I lost money on a Groupon deal… How does one do that?

Man, so I got a sweet haircut today. Probably the best one I’ve ever had. A woman even tapped on the glass of the haircutting place and mouthed she loved my hair – SERIOUSLY. But now I have nowhere to go! (Okay, I did have a BBQ invite, but I’m headachey so am not going.) Wait. Is this now about haircuts and nowhere to go, or headaches? I can’t decide. Both! Everything!

How To: Care For Curly Hair

by Shannon

I originally meant this to be a snarky post, all like, “If you find out, tell me, because I have severe difficulties.” But then I thought, you know what, my hair isn’t that brutal errrrrryday, so, I will take a note from my new blog friend (OMG) Jess and explain my daily routine.

This all started because a co-worker of mine couldn’t believe I didn’t wash my hair. As in, I haven’t touched a bottle of shampoo in about two years. My hair just doesn’t shampoo well. It gets dry and feels weird and just doesn’t feel like hair anymore to me. The oils and shiz that build up on straight-hair and make you look sick and gross and weird happen to help weigh my hair down to a somewhat manageable volume.

I also don’t brush my hair. It’s impossible. Sometimes I let my mom do it when I go home to visit my parents, but that’s more for the excellent scalp vibe (you know what I’m talking about, don’t lie and be weird) than the brushing itself. Brushing is instant death to curly hair. It rips the curl, it blows it up, and then it just vomits all over it. If you have curly hair, and you have issues with it, FOR THE LOVE OF KEANU REEVES STOP BRUSHING YOUR HAIR.

Man, that took a lot out of me. Forget things to do, just don’t do the above and I’ll get to other tips later, yo.

In the meantime, my curly hair is still far from perfect, so if you do have great tips, send ’em through!

And God said, Let there be curls

How To: Hike Up Your Water Bill

Spend about 45 minutes in the shower detangling some weird dreadlock that’s been growing in your hair that you had no idea about.

How To: Pack For A Weekend Getaway

by Shannon

Seriously, I would love some advice.

Headed to Boston this weekend with OMGmYHuSbAnD!LOVE4EVER and I have no idea what to pack.

Here’s what I’m planning on:

  • Seven pairs of underwear. Sometimes you need a thong, and sometimes you need a regular pair, and sometimes you need a pair that doesn’t ride up your butt no matter what
  • Nine shirts. Sometimes I don’t like the ones I already own so I have to try a different one
  • Four bottles of hair product. I have a lot of hair and stuff
  • One pair of pants. Well come on, it’s not like you wash jeans anyway, amiright

Obviously I’m a really good traveller.

The road goes ever on and on, and I didn’t bring enough to wear
