Works for Me Wednesday

So I remember that my grandma used to tell me that rainwater was the best hair conditioner. I have never tried it, due to the easy availability of conditioner in little bottles at the store.

But yesterday, as I walked out of my office to catch the bus home, the skies opened up in a downpour. So as I walked to the bus stop, I got thoroughly soaked. I learned that rubber flip-flops get VERY slippery in the rain - in fact, I had to take them off and walk barefoot (in downtown Denver - yuck!). I caught the bus and dripped all the way home. Luckily, I was wearing a t-shirt under a nicer shirt for work, so I was able to take off the top shirt and be a LITTLE less wet.

But anyway, back to my original point... this morning, my hair was really soft. I can only attribute it to the rainwater rinse. So apparently rainwater does make a good hair conditioner... but I think I will stick with the stuff in the bottle. It's just easier that way.

So this post went off on a bit of a tangent, but there are a few tips you could pull out of it:
  • Tip #1: Keep an umbrella handy.
  • Tip #2: Use rainwater as hair conditioner.
  • Tip #3: Don't wear flip-flops in the rain.
  • Tip #4: Always wear layers.

Or, you could just check back on the next Works for Me Wednesday when hopefully I'll have real tips again! =)

I have never heard that rain water makes the best conditioner. I will try it when it rains again. I love the rain. Especially down pours. They're the best!!!!

My grandma used to always say she wished she could wash her hair in rain water because it wasn't rusty (we had bad water when she lived with us).

So I guess for the most part you are saying, learn from your mistakes, and your hair was pretty today. hehe

I totally believe it, because growing up with a cabin on a lake, we'd often sauna and then wash our hair in the lake. It always made my hair soooooo soft. So it was in fact a true works for me wednesday, except I'm not sure many people are going to shower in the rain. :)
