Generic Paul Mitchell The Conditioner
Hola Chicas!

Two quick points;

(1) I recently revisited PM The Conditioner (the Generic version from Sallys), after a 2 year hiatus.
I remembered why I loved it and why I ditched it. If you’re looking for VERY shiny, soft results, with nearly medium hold, give it a try. I’m talking amazing, predictable results. I was inspired to try it after recommending it to two curlies that later thanked me profusely.

Sadly, if you’re porous and very dry like me, it will not moisturize your situation for more than a day or two, so you may want to use a heavier conditioner on your ends. But for real, try this as your leave-in/styler for your next Twist-Out or Wash&Go and report back!

Random but equally important;

(2) I went to my favorite Sushi spot Friday afternoon to get take out, Gia in tow. I was looking all cute, sitting at the bar, folks walking over oohing and ahhing over G Babes, and she was hamming it up. And then it happened. She farts… and it was unbelievably smelly… truly a grown man fart. No sooner than she cut loose, in comes this sweet old couple. They immediately walk up to us, smiling at G and asking her age and what not, and all I could do was smile… knowing that of the two us, they assumed I was the culprit.

Later Gators,

    I use this condish with my miss jessie's curly pudding. You are absolutely right about the med hold which I love but yes the moisture is gone after a few days…I will continue to use what I have but I may look for something else in the future.

    How does the Garnier Fructis leave in compare to this for you?

  • shamigreen says:

    LMAO… Hey my grandma always says there's more room on the outside than there is inside of you. Let em fly G Baby!

    I love the way Paul Mitchell products smell… haven't used em since the permed days though. I might give it a whirl.

    I also used to try Paul Mitchel Generic Leave In and at one point even tried the real thing after having got a coupon to use at Ulta.

    I can't really tell the difference between the Generic and the Name Brand. They are both just wonderful! 🙂

    I ditched it because I am some what of a PJ and tried something else, but now that I am using it again, my hair loooves it! 🙂

    I agree with your comments on PM The Conditioner (generic)…good hold but not very moisturizing. It feels great going on, but when it dries, my hair looks ok but is dry and feels brittle to the touch. I really wanted to like it and I've given it a fair shake…half the bottle is gone. I've used it as a leave-in/styler on its own, as a leave-in under gel and under cream gel…no go. I won't rebuy.

    Hey Nikki, you might get a few extra chuckles out of this book (the title is a mouthful)– "Let's Panic About Babies! How to Endure and Possibly Triumph Over the Adorable Tyrant Who Will Ruin Your Body, Destroy Your Life, Liquify Your Brain and Finally Turn You Into A Worthwhile Human Being" by Alice Brody & Eden Kennedy. I gave it to a friend as a shower gift. She loved it.

    HA HA!!! Isn't it amazing the awful sounds and smells that come from such cute little bodies?

    But you just wait a few years. She will embarrass the heck out of you by SAYING something inappropriate. I was at the park with my then 4 year old last year and a very pretty plus-sized woman walked up. At first he asked "Do you have a baby in your belly?" I was mortified. She laughed it off and said "No." Then my son said, "Well, are you fat?" I. Wanted. To. DIE. I snatched him by the hand, apologized PROFUSELY to the woman and made a quick bee line to car.

    Hahaha! You need to get a dog to blame the farts on!
