"Mom," my twelve-year-old daughter said. "Can you get some horse shampoo?"
I raised my eyebrows. "Horse shampoo? Why do we need horse shampoo? Last time I checked, a horse wasn't part of our menagerie."
"I need it for my hair."
"Your hair? Are you a horse?"
She scowled at me. "No, Mom. I'm not a horse. Horse shampoo makes your hair long and soft. I want long, soft hair."
I took a good look at her hair which falls half-way down her back. "I don't think you need any help in the long-hair department."
"I want it longer. And softer."
All right, then!
(I have not gotten horse shampoo for my daughter, but I did do a little research on the matter. If you'd like to learn about horse shampoo because you want long, soft tresses, read here.)
