DIY Hair Mask

A white drawstring trash bag clings to my shoulders like Superman’s cape. My hair is a sopping, slimey mess as I attempt to peel the stubborn plastic from my shoulders and wrap it around my head. Coconut oil runs down my back as I feverishly try to finish this task before someone finds me hovering in the kitchen, greasy and flushed, wearing workout gear and orange zebra striped socks with slip-resistant Skechers on my feet– in true Michael Jackson fashion.

New Wet N’ Wild Collection

I swear, I can spend forever just strolling through the makeup aisles of CVS. I do the same at ULTA and Sephora (when my wallet permits), but there’s never any crowds there and I hunt for BOGO deals and discounts.
