My friends, I’ve discovered the most amazing thing and I know what you’re going to tell me:

Seriously, we’ve been telling you about it for the past 12,000 years. Where have you been, Garance?

Well, It all started when I lopped off all my hair.

 Oooookay, don’t get all crazy on me. I’m not as gutsy as you think.

I cut some off, like, to the shoulders. Longer than in the illustration. Change without changing, the thrill without the risk, new inventions of the same thing, yeppppp, worse than a presidential election, totally boring.*

But still, I cried a little** when I got back to my house. The texture had changed and it was totally weird. It was 12 times more frizzy and I needed to work on it for like 8 and a half hours *** to make them look, let’s say…Ok.

The problem is, 8 and a half hours later, it’s time to go to bed. Crap. My hair was almost looking good and tomorrow morning, after my shower, I’ll have to start all over again.

Yes, I wash my hair every day. I know it’s not supposed to be good for you but I just can’t do it any other way. If my hair isn’t clean it’s all I can think about all day.

It’s the worst. 

So I had no intentions WHATSOEVER of spending 8 and a half hours on my hair.

And that’s when I came across my golden ticket, MY DISCOVERY OF THE YEAR : Dry shampoo. I know. It’s been 12,000 years since we first started hearing about it. So as I listen to you a little, I had bought some Klorane dry shampoo on a full moon (???) but since I’m not the greatest listener, I forgot all about it in my beauty closet. But with that, believe me, I remembered.

From now on, I’m going to listen to every word you say.

So I did what it said, gobbed it on to the roots and had white hair like Karl Lagerfeld. I got a little scared, no lies told, then brushed it out and had my hair sticking straight out like Robert Smith. I got a little more scared (this stuff gives some crazy volume) and then just like that, everything fell back in place and my hair looked amazing.

Like, not at all its usual texture, but super amazing and great. It was thicker, had more body, yet was lighter and a lot less curly. It took weird but had INTERESTING shape and I liked it.

Love. Glory. Beauty.

And with that think I won’t have to wash my hair everyday !!!

Aaaaaah, no seriously. I feel like 2012 is going to be a really interesting hair year.


* One of my reasons for half-assing it has a first name that starts with an S and ends with a T and I had talked to you about it here

** Hiding in my bathroom seeing as my house is also Gawance Dowé Studio and it’s not the best if the boss is balling her eyes out, we’re not at RACHEL ZOE’s here!!!*

*** Under the frightful gaze of S—t. He says that no he’s not cynical, even though he always told me to keep my hair long, he’s as happy as can be with the change, even though he’s laughing a little under his breath.


* Yeah and now everyone at the studio is going to read this and will know just why I was so upset last week…
