Placenta????

Seriously, I don't know where this is going, hopefully just to a good laugh. All the girlie girls in our house  take our  hair pretty seriously.  Running out of condition can cause an uprising.  Last week the unspeakable happened and for several days thanks to a very absent minded mom, we were left with shampoo only.  Of course I remembered we were out of conditioner right after I shampooed, rinsed and went to reach for the conditioner that wasn't there.  Only to make a mental (useless) note to remember to get conditioner. Finally Olivia, "calmly"and "politely" reminded me for about the fiftieth time that she could no longer live with out conditioner. 


Peter was out so we made the call to Dad to please pick up  some  conditioner on the way home so life could resume it's tranquil flow in our home.  Now let me state that Peter has picked up everything from conditioner to nail polish remover for his "girls". I can say with confidence that he is pretty darn good and comfortable with himself on the "girlie "isles in the store. 


But something must have distracted him this time. We are a Suave family.  We use the shampoo, conditioner, kids products and hairspray, and body wash. It smells good and fits into our budget. But Peter deviated from the well worn path of Suave and came home with something different. I didn't care or notice at first. It was a huge bottle and I figured it was on sale. Good shopper, Peter! 


after Olivia took her shower she came into the kitchen to announce that the conditioner Dad bought smelled like poop!  "Come on Olivia, it can't be that bad" I said. Stop complaining!!!

Well, I eventually got a shower and was very thankful when I saw this enormous bottle of conditioner. I lathered up. Then I could smell it. What was that smell? The conditioner? EWWW! It did smell like... what Olivia said!


Then for the first time I actually took a look at the bottle. I wanted to see what the name was. 

This is what I saw!








Placenta???  Could that explain the odd odor?  OK, now I realize that the word placenta must mean something else in another language. I googled the Spanish meaning and got the same as English.  I thought this was so stinkin' funny! Does anyone know what this word means???  Other than the obvious. 


And as of now, Peter is on probation. because as you can see he bought not one but TWO bottles of Placenta!!

"Hask placenta is made from sheep placenta or the after birth of the baby lamb. The placenta is taken after a mom sheep has her baby. In no way does it harm the mother nor the lamb. Normally the placenta would just be discarded and thrown away. In this way, the product is eco-friendly as they are reusing something that used to be chucked. The product is also all-natural and biodegradable!" Oh,My bud, thank you for always making me laugh...I love you and your ways and guess what...I am now going to purchase some placenta conditioner!!! Seriously, good call Peter!!! XO

gross! but very funny!
It reminds me of the movie my roomate in college used to watch, Boomerang (funny, but totally inappropriate), w/Eddie Murphy. Anyway, there is a scene where Grace Jones's character, Strange, is trying to market her new line of perfume which she wants to call "after birth". --
Anyway - does your hair at least look and feel silky smooth if doesn't smell good?

Bulldogma said...

Yes - in many Latin cultures placenta is a *must* for shiny, strong hair. I've read about it, but have not yet put a sheep's afterbirth on my head.

stephanie said...

Marianne! No it doesn't work well!!!
Just smells bad!

Maybe this was Peter's sure fire way of never having to visit the girlie isle again. WOW seriously TMI on that conditioner. Thanks for the info I think I will skip that one, I don't need shiny hair that badly. LOL

Denise said...

Ahhh...thanks for a good laugh today!! It is so funny because in our house we always run out of shampoo way before we run out of conditioner. We obviously have very different hair types, don't we??

Lacia said...

ummmm...EWWWWW.

Oh, dear. Your girls' hair was gorgeous before rubbing that stuff on it. Next time you're in a pinch, grab the mayonnaise, for crying out loud.

And tell your husband not to consolidate his beauty errands with his to-do list at Bass Pro shop anymore.

Oh, I can't stop laughing.

Don't I know the story of running out of conditioner, except I'm the only one who uses it in my house considering my dear hubby doesn't have any hair and Vir nor Saira have started on conditioner yet!!! But this story is the funniest, can't believe no one had checked the bottle before actually using it, shows how much you guys trust your dear husband/dad on making such purchases, first thing I would do is check the bottle if I had left it up to my husband!!! Thanks for the laugh, what are you going to do with the rest of the one and half bottles???

Ha Ha Ha... this has me cracking up... and kind of gagging all at the same time! ;)

way too funny! hope you were able to get out for a new bottle of good smelling suave conditioner soon after this incident :)

Melissa M said...

Wow, I didn't know this existed, but I don't know that I will ever ask hubby to buy conditioner now!
