Funny Story

So the other day at work, one of my regular clients came in for his haircut. I have cut this guys hair every other week for a year now so I know his hair pretty well! As I was shampooing him, something just seemed different. I couldn't put my finger on what it was so I just let it go. As we went back to my chair and I started cutting his hair he gets really excited and tells me that he and his wife went up to his parents house for the weekend and as he was taking a shower there he noticed that his mom had this stuff in her shower he had never used before. So he decided to use it and he loved it. THEN.. he looks me square in the face and says.. "have you ever heard of conditioner before??" hahahaha.. why yes i have! Turns out he has never once heard of or used conditioner before in his life and just started using it. He tells his wife about this and asks if they can get some at home and she informs him that she has always had some in the shower! (I do her hair as well and we got a real good laugh out of this a couple days later when she came in!!) Then I realized that was what i noticed at the shampoo bowl!! His hair was quite a bit softer and his cowlick in the front of his hair line was laying better than I have ever been able to make it lay in a whole year. I educated him some more on what conditioner does for the hair and now I think he is hooked for life! It really was a whole lot funnier in the moment, but it was the highlight of my week!

2 weeks ago we went on our summer vacation to Cancun Mexico! It was such a blast. We just layed on the beach most of the time, played in the crystal clear water, went snorkeling a couple times, on a couple boat rides, went to a couple flee markets and ate lots of food! We cant wait to go back sometime!
