dirty little secret (update to an update!)

ALERT! ALERT! I do NOT like the Buddy Rinse Conditioner. Used it today and the smell was not the same smell as the spray when applying to wet hair. Sort of smelled like it at first but then had a meat sort of smell. Not only that, I didn't like the way my hair dried after using it. My hair doesn't smell bad now that it's dry, but it's very dull, not shiny at all and limp. I still do LOVE the Spray but I'm only going to use the rinse on those with fur in this house. Tom???

Wrigs and I went to the pet store to get the animal's essentials so of course I had to stop at the shampoo/spray area and check out some more of the goodies. I'm opening bottles, sniffing them, then showing them to Wrigs so he could have a sniff too, (didn't want to appear too obvious that I'm buying this stuff for myself) and I found Buddy Rinse Conditioner, in the same scent as the spray. I popped it in my cart and headed over to the register. The sales girl says to me, "Oh have you tried the shampoo on him?" I tell her that no I think we'll just stick with the conditioner for now. Then she says, "The stuff smells so good I want to use it on my own hair." I think, should I go there?? Oh what the hell so I say, "Well actually, I'm buying this to try myself." I wait for strange looks but get none. She says, "I know people who do that. One of the girls who works here uses the spray on her hair all the time." I blurt out, "I LOVE THE SPRAY! I use it all the time and that is why I'm buying the conditioner!" She laughs at me and says, "Did you know there's also a bar soap?" I tell her, "SHUT UP I NEED IT NOW" and she takes me back over to the aisle. But unfortunately, the bar soap is sold out. Now I'm starting to wonder how many people are really using this stuff on their dogs. I think the secret's out. Has anyone been able to find it yet? If so, please let me know what you think! It's delicious.

Oh and I'll let you know how I like the Buddy Rinse, probably within the next 3 days or so.





Since I'm a lazy ass and don't like to wash/dry/style my hair unless birds start taking up residence...
I read somewhere that it's damaging to the hair follicles if you wash your hair too often so I typically wash and dry no more than 3 times a week. When my hair starts to get icky I use a conditioning spray that works WONDERS and makes it smell fresh and clean while adding a little sheen to the surface.

This spray is only sold in select stores. You won't find it at your high end salons, discount beauty suppliers, drugstores, Targets, etc. Nope, none of those places will carry it. But waltz into your local pet store and low and behold there it is...

Buddy Splash Pet Spritzer

My favorite is the Lavender Mint splash and I'm usually not a fan of lavender but it's so subtle and is one of the cleanest smelling sprays I've ever tried. Oh and Wrigs likes it too! Our local pet store carries it for $5.95 and I'm tempted to try some of the other scents.

I'll bring Wrigs along as my decoy.

OH MY HELL!!! I hope my PetSmart carries this miracle stuff! I'm with you. YOU know what a hot mess my hair is, it couldn't survive being washed more than a couple of times a week. I'm so excited to look into this. Thanks, Sista!!!!

I have such fine, limp hair that the only way it looks like it has a little body is to wash it. Sometimes I need to wash it twice a day! It's short, so it's not a lot of fuss, but I am going to try my local pet store for this product! That would be so neat if it works on my horrible hair! Thanks.

Anon needs the "Bump It" it sounds like. I used cat wipes one day on my hair. My problem is my hair gets pretty greasy after the 2nd day of not washing it.

anon: I'm not sure how it will work on fine, limp hair, but if it saves you from having to wash it more often that could be a good thing.

Have you seen the Bump It??

Here's a link, https://www.bumpits.com/?mid=586076&a=55959&s=

Looks like they work pretty well!

You are too funny! And I'm the exact same way. Wash my hair every three days or so... So, that being said, I'm totally going to check this stuff out! Mattie could use a spritz too. Its been about 6 weeks for her. Mommy's been a little preoccupied..

Thanks for the tip...I have been meaning to try some sort of dry shampoo...but the cost of some of those products have steered me away. This is such a great bargain. Can't wait to go to Petco and pick some up!

Thanks for the suggestions for the Bump-It. I have seen the infomercials about them. I forgot to mention that besides my hair being very fine and limp, I also have not so much hair on top and, even at my advanced age, it is oily after ten hours. You can't really see my scalp yet, but I suppose that day is coming. I fear that a Bump-It would not be covered by my existing hair--but maybe it would look like a crown! So those of you with lots of pretty, thick hair with lots of body, just enjoy it! It could be worse. (Luckily I am seriously not high maintenance and never have been, so it doesn't bother me as much as it should.)

I'm not sure if Petco carries this brand but worth a try. All the Best Pet Store and Next to Nature carries it here in the Seattle area. Mud Bay might also have it too. I can't wait for you guys to smell it and tell me what you think. I wish they made a lotion in this scent!!

Oh my gosh...you are too funny! I have some spray similiar to what you are talking, but I didn't get it at the pet store..haha!

Grace Matthews said...

That's funny. I might have to try that since I have been trying to wash my hair less nowadays.
