Good news... and BETTER news!!

The good news is that I've found the shampoo of my dreams... Aveda Smooth Infusion. It has changed my life completely, mostly for the better (the worst part is that I'm now twirling my hair around my fingers again because it's so SOFT I can't help myself).

The even BETTER news is that I got a totally freaking awesome score on an NIH grant that I applied for... the application process was painful (and painful, and painful again) but it ended up being worth all the pain in the end... not only did I learn a lot from the application and revisions process but then I ended up scoring well (eventually)!! I won't find out for a few months whether I actually get money, and in this funding climate it's never good to assume anything, however I scored well within the range that was funded on the last round so things look good.

I love Aveda products--beware though, they are addictive. This is a problem because they are so expensive!

Congrats on your NIH score--good scores are hard to come by and you should be proud of it no matter what happens with the funding situation. Those applications really put you through hell!

Oh, I may look that one up when I need to buy the next bottle.

Congrats- that's awesome! (About both the shampoo and the grant score!) ;)

Glad to hear about your NIH score, that is awesome. And Aveda does rock. I use their hair paste stuff and it rocks.

Uncle KT - thanks! I think you're right about Aveda being addictive. It's like the fancy cocaine of street drugs.

Peggy - definitely do! it's a good one, especially if you have wavy hair that sticks out all over the place, like me. I also recommend the Rosemary Mint, which is also divine.

MJ - yes, I thought they were both good enough to put in the same post... thanks!!

Newt - I think I know of this hair paste you speak of. My Studly Hubby has used it of yore. Pretty much everything I've ever used/heard of from Aveda is worth the money.
