My scalp has been itching for several weeks now. I went to my barber to figure out if he could determine what was going on. He could figure it out either but told me to go home and check the ingredients on my shampoo. I followed his advice and guess what. For the past few months I have been washing my hair with conditioner. I was wondering why I never got and lather. I would scrub and scrub and no lather till I was beginning some inflammation. I called his back to tell him and of course he laughed and said go get a gentle shampoo and use that from now till the next time I see you for a haircut. If it doesn't clear up call my Doctor. I cannot figure out how I made such a mistake. I need to read bottles more carefully.
LOL! Your hair should be nice and soft and moist. I have done the same thing a couple of times. Kathy buys conditioner that is the same brand as her shampoo and the bottles look very similar. It doesn't take much of either to care for what hair I have left on top, haha! Sometimes when I am in a hurry I just lather my head with soap at the same time I lather my face.

Dagwood... if I didn't know better, I'd think you were moving into the 'Golden Years' where things like this happen more and more frequently. I'm in those years myself and believe me... you're not alone. I haven't mistaken conditioner for shampoo in a long time, but my mind isn't where it used to be any more either. When I make a booboo like that I just laugh, although it's really not funny. So welcome to the club.

I once put Ben Gay on my toothbrush. Thank goodness I could smell it before I got it to my mouth. I tossed the toothbrush and told Kathy not to leave the Ben Gay on the counter next to the Pepsodent. I can't even imagine how nasty it would have tasted. She got a good laugh thinking about me actually getting it in my mouth.
"The golden years." Those years when we can remember events of 50 or 60 yrs ago but can't go to the grocery store without a list or we come home with only half of what we went for.

I like to put a few shakes of cinnamon in my protein yogurt shake in the morning. Since I have moved the Smoked Paprika out of the way I no longer mistake it for cinnamon. Although the smoked paprika wasn't that bad tasting. I wasn't about to throw my drink away.
