my dogs shampoo and conditioner!
So in the middle of my shower last night, I realized we were out of both shampoo and conditioner…which is a major problem for my long and snarly hair!
I used it out of desperation, but the great news is that I now repel odor and should shed less!
So what crazy things have you all done out of desperation?

I’ve “washed” with baby wipes out of desperation… in the days when a shower and a good night’s sleep were non-existant.

I litterally just laughed out loud at work reading this. I would have probably done the same thing. I have used body wash before when I was out of shampoo, never thought of the pup’s shampoo! Creative thinking!!

I don’t think that’s that weird. I mean Mane and Tail is meant for humans and horses and I’ve definitely used Sauve on horses in the past.
When I went to Guatemala I didn’t pack a full sized soap, so when I ran out of my travel sized body wash I used shampoo for the rest of the month. My legs were really soft even when I didn’t shave at least.

@Eva Peron: haha, you’re awesome! Dogs always smell so good after they’ve been bathed. I bet you smelled just as wonderful!

@Eva Peron: Haha oh that is too funny!!
I can’t think of anything off the top of my head, but I know there are some things I’ve done out of desperation!

That’s brilliant! We have ‘Pet Head’ for ours, made by the same people as ‘Bed Head’ (Tigi). I don’t know if you get that in the States, but it smells really good, so if pushed, I’d probably use it!
Your coat should have extra vitality now…lol

the dish soap thing isnt so bad, my hair gets oily pretty fast so I add a drop of dawn to my bottle of shampoo and it helps get rid of the oil buildup of course if you use it too often its going to really dry your scalp out. sometimes I use conditioner in place of shaving cream and SO’s razor if I dont have one

@jjmomma: gotta do what ya gotta do!
@Treejewel19: I know right?! Might as well go out and play in the woods now 😉
@amber.woulfe: Great point about body wash!!
@Earlybride: Now thats awesome, I think we are on to something. I think everything is the same stuff just packaged differently to trick us into spending and buying
@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: LOL! Mane and Tail was what I was out of for conditioner. I also love using my horses Cowboy magic! Excellent tip about about shampoo on the legs, I have used conditioner too.
@brox: Thanks , Im feeling pretty good about my choice now!

Ran out of shaving cream and used bar soap—now that’s all I use. It’s way better for me at least!
And in the kitchen I’m always running out of stuff and making weird substitutions. Brown sugar for regular, salsa for tomato sauce, whatever spice I’ve got in place of expensive spice the recipe calls for. 😀

@Eva Peron: I think as long as you don’t resort to using blueing shampoo you’ll be okay
