quickie! DIY Leave-In Hair Conditioning Spray

In a spritzer bottle mix some of your favorite conditioner to water--
1:4 ratio in the summer
1:3 ratio in the winter.

I read a "hack" online that suggested using fabric softener as hair conditioner... (4 tbsp. fabric softener mixed with 3 cups water for a leave-in conditioning treatment and detangle spray)... and my advice for this is NO! DO NOT DO THIS ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE DYED HAIR! Fabric softener stripped the pink and purple semi-permanent dyes from my hair. Scary.

Anyone remember Lady Lovely Locks? Forget My Little Pony lol I'm not lying when I say this girl has been my life-long hair-inspiration! Those cute little chipmunks, birds, and bunny Pixietails gave her golden blonde hair the most beautiful streaks of purple and pink and blue, she was so lucky!!

I want to talk about being a professional adult with crazy colored hair for a minute. When I was young (like 20yrs ago) I was constantly told I wouldn't get hired with pink hair. I have a degree in chemical engineering- I was told they'd only hire me if I had normal hair and no piercings even tho the job was working in a lab where nobody would see me. WHY DID IT MATTER?!
So what did I end up doing? Wigs. And we all knew how ridiculous it was but it confirmed to the rules. Life shouldn't be so stupid but sometimes it is. Looks matter. Then the old people in charge of us die 🙂 and we can change the rules. Play the game, get to the top, and change everything!

Fast forward 10 years and I found the best answer: be your own boss. Anyone can be an entrepreneur. Go for it! Why be a slave to someone else? Start a side hustle today and become independent. You do you, boo! Provide a good service or product that people want, and your hair color won't matter. Like I'm a landlord now 😎 renters meet me and they've got pre-conceived ideas that I'm not smart or I'm beneath them 😂 well I wrote the iron-clad lease, I know the laws, and I'm not the one who will end up homeless, so 🙋 bye, Felicia!

Recently society has become more accepting of wild hair colors and piercings and tattoos. The president of my state's lawyer association has pink hair. I love how things have changed and there's less discrimination ❤️
