Lather Me Up Baby
TWO women walk into Boots and pick up the exact same thing – a bottle of baby shampoo. One of the women is a new mother, complete with the baby in tow. The other is a young college student with no children. Both need the shampoo, but for different means. It seems that the name is duping us a little and that baby shampoo isn’t just for the young wans running around the house or screaming from the Moses basket in the corner. This little bottle of yellow liquid can go a long way to sort out even the most unusual conundrum.
Except your taxes. It can’t do those.
Colour Stripping – Ok, not all of us are pros at the DIY dye job. If your hair is now a bit too dark and completely washing your skin out, throw a bit of baby shampoo in before starting your regular shampoo and conditioner routine.
Dirty Dishes – Running out of Fairy liquid? The grease neutraliser in baby shampoo makes it a handy alternative.
Product Build-up – If you’ve been using a lot of serum or leave in conditioners on your hair then baby shampoo will be your saviour. If you use it regularly it will make your hair healthier in just a few weeks, cutting through any residue left over from previous care.
Eye Make-up Removal – No, really. With it’s ‘no more tears’ promise, baby shampoo will wipe away the glittery eye shadow you layered on for a night out without stinging you.
Better Brushes – As well as the make-up on your face, baby shampoo is good at tackling the bits left behind. Pour a drop on your make up brushes and wash with hot water for a cheap alternative to the pricey cleaning solutions offered by cosmetics companies.
Getting Plastered – Taking a plaster off is no one’s favourite task. Let some baby shampoo seep through the air holes of the next plaster you put on for a painless removal.
