Hair!

Would this stuff work?

Should I try it?

Should I care?

    It sounds like a product that only Charlie Sheen’s hair would need. All that calming and soothing! Who’s hair is really that upset?

    Ookisa – A Scam or a Misunderstanding?: http://blog.americanhairloss.org/hair-loss/ookisa-scam-or-misunderstanding/

    The above link talks mostly about their business practices, but also refers to some customer reviews that say no new hair growth was achieved, etc. It also lists ALL of their ingredients to help you make a more informed decision.

    Be well!

    My husband is Asian and he has the thickest, shiniest hair. It’s gorgeous. And of course he’s always lopping it off — he is pretty conservative and likes a conservative hair cut. I beg him to grow it out, as it’s just such beautiful hair, but it bothers him if it gets too long. And it grows so fast! He just had it cut yesterday and I wish he wouldn’t, but it’s not my hair, it’s his, so he gets to do what he wants.

    As to needing a special shampoo, I’ve never met anyone who needs less special treatment for his hair. When I met him he was using Pert Plus because it was a shampoo and conditioner in one, and he didn’t like doing 2 steps! And Pert is a detergenty shampoo, just yuk. He is also cheap and would never buy an expensive shampoo, I’m sure. And his hair looks fabulous. Shiny, sleek, thick. No way, if his is typical Asian hair (and yes, his individual hairs are very thick compared to mine) does he need special products.

    I wish I had hair like his. Wish wish wish. You know Asian hair is the hair they use in the extension trade? It’s the “preferred hair”!

      My daughter’s Korean and has fabulous hair, too, except she always says she wants it to be like mine because I have a little bit of natural curl and hers is so straight. It’s like a river of silk when it’s clean and brushed.

        Yes, that’s exactly what my husband’s hair is like. We always want what we don’t have, right? Your daughter is a case in point. I think I’d love to have stick straight, black, shiny hair and a classic bob, but I have fine, slightly wavy hair and when I wake up in the a.m. it looks like a riot, which my husband finds amazing. So weird. Everyone I know with naturally thick, curly hair straightens it! And I got a perm. for years because I didn’t think my hair had enough body.

        Ugh. Never good enough!

    This Ookisa stuff reminds me of the part time job I was lucky to get this past Christmas season. I was also unlucky to get it, because I was pushing a supposedly “natural” line of body products sold in a huge department store, and I had to do the same lying that these people are doing in order to sell it and keep my job for my term of employment.

    On another note, it’s interesting how much the perception of hair impacts so many of us. I’m not immune either (which I acknowledge on my own blog in regard to Mr. Macy.) I wish mine was lustrous and easy care, and I struggle to accept healthy and then just chill out.
