I bought some weird Asian shampoo at the Chinese grocery store. Don’t ask me why. I guess I thought that if anyone knew how to make shampoo for Chinese people, it would be the Chinese. Anyway, two things stand out about this stuff.

a) It’s black. I can live with that though. It lathers up into white foam like any normal shampoo. It was just mildly shocking when I first saw it come out of the bottle.
b) The label says “Irritation: Unnoticable.” I don’t know if I should feel reassured, or nervous.

I’ll let you know if I develop any unusual scalp rashes in the next few days. My hair HAS been more cooperative since I started using the black shampoo though. It might be worth the unnoticable irritation…
