December 5th

The Schwarzkopf calendar held a 50 ml shampoo bottle which smells super weird. Like sweet dirt or something? I like that it claims a pH of 4,5 but the ingredient list is just awful with high scores for acne, irritants, mostly yellow and several red ingredients.

Hair is freshly CO-washed and super slippery, so it's in a simple single braid for now.

As annoying as that freshly washed slipperiness can be, it still feels good when it's as close to "soft" as my hair can ever really be.


  1. Oooh, I had shampoo from this product line a couple of times (gifted), they all have this weird smell: sweet and somehow slightly rancid, with some foody undertones.
    My scalp didn't like it, hair also was pretty unimpressed. I got that weird fluffiness from it I get from certain cones where the hair feels dry, fluffy and tangles like hell, but is also weirdly slippery.

    1. That's what it smells like. Yes, exactly! All I could come up with was "This smells super weird. WTF".
      Ugh, that doesn't sound good. I'll either give it to someone or clean the bathroom with it then.

  2. The braid is majestic! I believe it is what many long hairs dream about. Than you for educating and inspiring long hair. ♥
