Shampoo-less v. 2

14 12 2009

Day 2,

Today I managed to get some apple cider vinegar before my shower and used it according to the second part of that recipe. First thing first, I have no clue what’s in my cider vinegar because it doesn’t mention apples, does not list the ingredients but it does have pictures of apples on it. And it has the colour of watered down cider. That counts for something right?

So I smushed more baking soda goo into my hair and rubbed it in, and I think I need more baking soda to make a bigger goo because I don’t feel that a tiny spoonful is going to cover my entire head at all. Rinse etc. And the same thing happened as day 1, a soft, not super squeaky, clean. Next came the vinegar, which I stupidly used COLD water to dilute. Sigh. When I first poured that on my head I breathed in in shock and ended up with vinegar up my nose. Ah joy.

For some reason, now my hair feels lightly greasy. How did this happen?! Did someone put grease in my vinegar without me noticing?! Well, it’s not all that bad, but my head does smell like vinegar. Although the actual hair part, when I rub my fingers on it, still smells like shampoo from… that’s 3 days now isn’t it? What DID they put in it?

To not smell like a strange salad vinaigrette, I sprayed some perfume onto my fluffy short locks. I’m going out to buy some fabric today and let’s see if my mom notices the vinegar scent during lunch.

On another note, I started using my FCUK perfume that I bought on sale a long long time ago. It smells quite nice, hence why it’s in my room the first place.  I also fell in love with Marc Jacob’s Lola and Miss Dior Cherie L’eau. Not the actual Cherie eau de parfum, but the L’eau version. Majority of recent developments from Dior has strange things in it that my nose likes to object to. And by recent I mean the past 5 years, the original Miss Dior included.

Cherie’s mid notes are really really strange and strong, while the base note is closer to the L’eau, which is a lighter version (with a different recipe). Here’s Cherie’s eau de parfum and the l’eau’s notes comparison:

Miss Dior Cherie: Top notes of green tangerine and strawberry leaves. Mid notes of violette jasmine, pink jasmine, carmelized popcorn, and strawberry sorbet. Base notes of fresh patchouli and crystalline musk.
Miss Dior Cherie L’eau: strawberry leaves, pink jasmine, caramelized popcorn, strawberry sorbet, and patchouli. Sorry I couldn’t find the separated listing.

I’m guessing both of them have patchouli in the base and pink jasmine and the popcorn in the middle. It would seem that I probably dislike the tagerine or the sorbet, which is strange because I thought for sure I’d be objecting to the strawberries and popcorn.

Dior J’adore (bonus): Top notes of Calabrian Bergamot and citrus. Mid notes of rose. Base notes of gardenia.
