The Cheap Way to Deep Condition: Grocery Bags

 Old pic of me dc'ing w/ a grocery bag

My mother used to collect our plastic grocery bags in a drawer after we would come from the grocery store. I never understood why she did it, I just did what I was told. Now I do it. My husband doesn't understand my obsession with collecting grocery bags. It's funny how we pick up things from our parents. So I came up with my own purpose of collecting them: to deep condition my hair. :-)

When I first started my healthy hair journey, I had a dome hair dryer, but that sucker conked out on me in the 1st year of my journey. I've always wanted a Pibbs or something similiar. If you don't know, the Pibbs hair dryer is famous in the hair world! It's known for being an amazing hair dryer. On a bad note: They've just always seemed to expensive and not justifiable. They usually retail for around $300.....yeah. With The Munchkin on the way, who knows when I'll be able to get one...But anyway, to make up for it I use grocery bags as a substitute. I love them because they're effective & FREE. Well, after you buy the groceries they're all yours. I just wrap 2 around my head and deep condition for how ever long I feel like-usually around 2 or 3 hours. The heat from your scalp contributes to the dc'ing process. Because the plastic bags are indeed not a hair dryer, I deep condition with them longer.

If you collect grocery bags like me and don't have a hair dryer, try dc'ing with them. I know there are some ladies that use the grocery bags in addition to the hair dryer. That's fine too. Try it out and let me know how you like it! :-) ...or if you hate it.

Oh and here's a pic of my collection....lol. I will say this: I never run out!
Make sure you are following me on Twitter & Facebook for more of my ramblings about hair and anything else I want to talk about. :-)

My grandma collected plastic bags and so do my mom. They mainly use them as trash bags for the trash cans throughout the house, but I use them for that as well as baggying my hair. It's cheap an inexpensive. :)
