As anyone could guess, it weighs a ton and took me a while to get used to. Typing was the hardest adjustment-I worried for a while that my s and w keys would be broken, but they’re fine. It’s been well received by everyone-literally everyone-who sees it in real life (and not so much online, but that’s ok. To the person who called it “hellaciously ugly”, what you say is what you are, anyone who read that comment was thinking the same of you, I promise) other than my boss’s mom who can not wrap her head around a skull ring as engagement ring. The dark acid wash has faded quite a bit, especially on the side that rubs against my pinky ring (another piece of jewelry from Shannon, made in our Stainless days). That side is bright, shiny silver. There are also a couple dings on the head from it being bashed occasionally. Like I said, it’s heavy.
2. My hair.
It’s great! We’re still going the no ‘poo method and I’ve never been less stressed about my hair. I used to battle it every day but now I just let it be. Every Saturday morning I brush it out before I get in the shower (which, I know, goes against the rules, but if I tried to comb it in the shower I’d be there for days) then I get in, wet it and lather up with conditioner (we found Suave which is cheap and smells great). I let it sit for a few minutes then rinse with cool water. I squeeze as much water out as possible, bent over the tub and sometimes I even give it one quick pat (but not a rub) with my towel. Then I plop, or, wrap my head in a clean t shirt. I hang out like this for no more than half an hour, then let it down and put some curl defining gel or cream in it. Done. I think in warmer weather I will do it twice a week, but for now, I can not leave my apartment with wet hair (it freezes). It might sound funny, but I haven’t used shampoo in almost 3 months! Yay!
