suave challenge

the suave challenge ... have you ever taken it?

this should be interesting coming from me ... a licensed cosmotologist! so the suave challenge is this, times are rough economically for a bit many of us! including nate & I. i could even say the roughest they have ever been for us! at least it really feels that way. we are facing some harsh realities and hard lessons. in realizing that there really is no money to be frivalized on ANYTHING if we want to make it through the month. i have been contemplating the suave challenge. now i am a cosmo so i believe in the power of professional products! and not only do i believe i pay wholesale for them! thats still more then the cost of suave ... a lot more. so what if i needed shampoo and conditioner this month about how much would i save by doing the suave challenge? around $15-$20. how much would i save over a year if i did it all year? $150-$200 on just shampoo and conditioner. interesting isnt it? would my hair feel great and look great? who knows i have never done it ... am i going to do it? at least this month i sure am, i cant afford not too!

other things going on ... we are headed back to normal sort of.... i have been really sick with an ugly cold virus thats turned into something more i am sure for about a week. just barely coming around the bend. kids are doing great, healthy, happy and attending school for the most part! had SEP's this week and we are proud of our smart well behaved kiddos and i am so proud of myself for actually having and giving the time to homework and violin as of late. house is always clean, lots of people looking, no offers. almost already sick of being back on the market in such a short time. aunt is very sick in her last weeks of battling cancer, dad may come to visit. busy with consults, designs, and work for studio stems. writing english papers and trying to understand math. questioning wether i really have the smarts to get through lame school so i can be a nurse. nate is busy with his scouts and had a blast with them last weekend on a klondike campout. he is also busy with wrestling & stock. what else ... hmmmm i am sure i have forgotten a few things.

I am having a similar problem. I am in love and so very dependent on Pureology products. Love Love Love them, and so does my hair. But common on, $40 for shampoo and conditioner!

I believe I will also jump on and take the Suave Challenge. I hope my hair manages. (no punn intended)

You can totally do school! Keep going, even if it's slow and so you can take care of your family!

Hey Audrey,
I'm sorry I never got to that other paper. Life has been kind of crazy to say the least. But if you need help again, try me and I'll let you know if I can help or not. Now Suave, I've tried it and I had to at least bump it up to Herbal Essence or Aussie or something! Good luck with the challenge though. Oh yeah, I read a book and can't remember the author. I'm wondering if it came from your site. A girl thought the detective her dad hired to protect her on her way to visit her Aunt was a thief. Does that ring a bell with you? They went to the World's Fair? I just wish I knew who the author.
