29 June 2011

Pranking the significant other [More:]Mrs. Trurl e-mailed me a shopping list today that included:

- hair conditioner (a BRAND NAME please)

Smarting under this familar charge of cheapskatery, I plotted my revenge...

We just finished the following text exchange:

me: got a good deal on Suave

her: nooooooo!!!

me: ?
me: Suave is a brand

[actually got Tresemme, for having sponsored Project Runway]
Technically, I have to side with you - Suave is a brand. Not a generic.

I like Tresemme, Dove, and Guarnier Fructisse for hair products. For a long time I've been trying to wean myself onto organic stuff from the crunchy store or high-end stuff from my hairdresser, but my inner Depression farm wife just cringes when I think about paying $14 for what is, at the end of the day, some pretty basic detergents and oils.

I have often wondered if the marriage would have lasted if I had just bought the hair conditioner she wanted.

I've only ever used Suave shampoo and conditioner. It's cheap and works and doesn't smell like a fruit basket. Wife uses other stuff but buys it mail order and would never trust me to pick up the right thing.

I don't know about the rest, but Tresemme doesn't test on animals. So that's good.

I enjoy Suave shampoo, it's my favorite of all the cheap shampoos.

Because I do mostly conditioner-only hair cleansing (shampooing only every once in a while), I use a cheap, cheap giant bottle of non-brand conditioner (which tries to make itself look like the BedHead range) from the 99p store for the first 'wash', followed by a richer conditioner for the actual conditioning.

A lot of people find Suave harsh. If I'm going cheap I go with Tresemme, but I'm currently wondering what difference it really makes in shampoo. It's conditioner that stays on and tends to matter if you need it.
