I went to pick up shampoo the other day. The questions needed to complete this task came at me fast and furious:
Is my hair fine? Sure, I guess it’s doing OK.
Dry & damaged? Isn’t everyone’s?
Needing of fuller body? Maybe.
Fizz control? Shoudn’t have used the last one.
Do I want conditioning? Yes. I suppose.
In need of a silky sheen? Does it ever!
Dandruff? Who am I, my dad?
How much grey hair am I getting? (Oh yeah. Gonna be just like my dad)
Does it have cracked and split ends? How should I know?
How long have I been standing here? Hey, look! This one is cheaper. Now just to quickly grab a tube of toothpaste.
Wait. What the…!?
