(Edited next day at bottom)
When you coat your hair with a pot of Neutrogena intensive lip repair salve, it becomes a solid oily mass. And it doesn't come off with shampoo. The hot water only melts it, making an even larger oily mass of hair.
Just so you know.
Talc doesn't "bind" the oil, easily rinsing out as the tip on the internet suggests. (Knew you couldn't trust the internet...). It just makes a bigger, grayer mess.
Guess I'll have no choice other than whip out my precious bottle of "Goo Gone," brought over from the USA, used only in emergencies (such as the hands covered in gum on Thursday...).
At least the hair will then smell of citrus instead of medicine.
Guess "Rachael Ray" will need a break before her next "television" appearance.
Edited next day:
The Goo Gone actually worked wonders. It made her hair greasy all over, but after a few separate hair washings, she now looks (and smells) great.
And OH, MY, Olga! I can't believe Leo dyed his hair BLUE! I can just picture you struggling with him--and his hair--in your sink! You must have been FURIOUS! He must have been ridiculed at school, though... "Leo the Smurf"... Best punishment you could ever give!
There's probably some color in my parental future... I'll never forget the last time Katya seriously butchered her hair, requiring professional intervention. As she sat in the chair FUMING about having her birthday party canceled (used that money instead to pay to have her and her sister's hair--which she had cut off to Natalia's dismay--fixed as much as possible), I tried to contain my anger and seriously prayed she had learned her lesson.
Instead, she surveyed all the pictures on the salon's walls and said with tone of voice full of awe and first discovery... "People can COLOR their hair???!" I looked up and saw her focusing on a blond model with blue and pink streaks... and I knew right then and there that I was doomed!
