Sixpence None the Richer, "Kiss Me"
Yay! Finally located a copy of the original, "Jules and Jim" video for this lovely song.
(Looks like my old "Lipstick Page" photography, eh? It's not, I'm just saying.)
Ever the shampoo whore, I picked this up on a whim. Turned out to be cool stuff: an archetypal granola-flavored, health-food-store shampoo. Too thin in consistency to please conventional shampoo-ers, and too herbal in scent, this golden liquid feels almost oily on hair, yet rinses almost too clean (not looking for squeaky), leaving hair feeling pretty darn good.
It does build up, used daily over time, but who cares. Just switch to something else for a while.
I'm impressed enough with this to consider trying other Aubrey Organics hair products.
Dr. Hauschka Nasturtium and Lemon Shampoo, revisited.
Cannot laud this enough; even though, as a shampoo, it's a bit of a total rip-off (raised from $13 to $20 a pop). So, I don't use it as a shampoo, but rather as a scalp treatment, applying a small amount to the top of my head, and washing the main part of my hair with a cheaper shampoo.
This has "cured" that top-of-the-head itchy scalp thing I had, when used over time. I don't think it cured it--I think it just doesn't irritate the top of my head, the way just about every other shampoo does.
