memories and Farrah hair

farrah_fawcett1My hair smells like a Dole fruit bar. My daughter left her Herbal Essence shampoo and conditioner in my shower, and if you can believe it, I borrowed it this morning just for sentimental reasons. Not to smell like my daughter, but to remember.

Seventh grade English wasn’t that fun. My boyfriend, Russell Wilson (who got that title just by asking me to a church valentine banquet once) sat behind me. That was also the year that Celeste with the long blonde hair moved into the ‘hood. How did she know that Farrah hair would be so cool long before we’d even heard of her? Celeste evidently used Herbal Essence shampoo because all Russell could do that year was ask me what kind of shampoo I used and tell me how Celeste used Herbal Essence and her hair smelled really nice—all while sniffing my hair, but drooling over Celeste. I obviously hadn’t gotten the memo and was into daily scrubs of Head and Shoulders and gallons of Sea Breeze due to oily hair with bangs that split if they had to mop up the adolescent forehead.

I’m sorry. Do I sound bitter? Don’t hate me because my hair smells like a popsicle.

  1. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…I used Wheat Germ shampoo and conditioner…you know the one that had the commercial which said I told 2 friends and they told 2 friends and so on and so on or something like that…

  2. I thought the Farrah hair style is back. I flip my long hair out more now like I did back then. I like experimenting with different shampoos. But by the time I’m through spraying all the other chemicals in my hair, I can’t smell the shampoo any more. 🙂

  3. Hee hee! I remember trying to have Olivia Newton-John hair. It never really worked.

    I guess I thought I would miraculously begin to look like her and all the guys would go wild. Didn’t happen.

    Oh well…life can be hard.
