I’ve had periods in my life when personal hygene wasn’t on the top of my list. There were times when I’d use anything that lathered to wash my hair if I was out of shampoo or better yet, something else was closer. I even was told that seawater and toothpaste makes dreadlocks so I ‘bathed’ in the ocean for a week with a tube of Crest.
So, that being said… I’m not all that disappointed when I’m forced to improvise in a hotel.
There are times when you get all decaf and no regular coffee for the coffee maker. Sometimes you get two fitted sheets on the bed that wrap around you like a burrito. And then there are the days when there is no shampoo but two hairnets.
Today, I will lather twice and rinse once… with soap.
And if things don’t work out and my already nappy hair turns even nappier – I’ve got a hat I can tuck it all up under.
