Bossy found this buried in her linen closet a few days ago and it made her laugh senseless. Here’s why: Bossy’s sister-in-law was an actress.
She acted in movies, and she acted on Broadway, and she appeared at least once in every major sitcom and police drama throughout the last decade. Like this:
And especially this:
Bossy’s sister-in-law the actress? Hilarious. And when not making Bossy laugh until her insides emptied, she negotiated Bossy’s entree into the world of upscale beauty regimes.
It was Bossy’s sister-in-law who taught Bossy how to pilfer makeup samples from Bergdorf Goodman, and how to use the Origins store as a place to wash her hands, just like she introduced Bossy to the concept of haircuts with Italian men that cost the equivalent of a plane ticket.
Bossy and her sister-in-law would often meet in New York’s midtown for a day of beauty—which always began with cream puffs and continued through
spring rolls with a couple of shoe acquisitions thrown in for good measure.
Well. It came to pass one summer that this certain sister-in-law met and began a friendship with Jennifer Aniston. And Bossy’s sister-in-law spent some time at Jennifer Aniston’s house. And one of the first things Bossy’s sister-in-law did while visiting Jennifer Aniston, was to throw back Jen’s shower curtain so she could study all of Jennifer Aniston’s hair products and report them directly back to Bossy.
Oh yes she did. And this was the main product she saw:
Which is why, a few months later, standing with her sister-in-law in the aisle of Ricky’s NYC, Bossy filled her cart with the stuff.
Because although Bossy and Jennifer Aniston do not have the same hair texture—or the same anything—Bossy’s sister-in-law reasoned that if this conditioner could keep Jennifer Aniston’s locks from hair dryer ruin, it would certainly be advantageous to a certain someone suffering from frizz.
So Bossy went home and tried the product—which she left on her hair for two entire hours, tucked under a shower cap. And Bossy was so satisfied with the smooth result, she took the following photo for her sister-in-law, as proof of the conditioner’s worth:
Anyway. Bossy found this conditioner the other day while wrestling the alligator that is her linen closet. And it made Bossy laugh because, although her sister-in-law lost her battle with cancer two years ago, giggling over Jennifer Aniston’s hair products would have been precisely what she would have wanted.
