No, not this:
Yep, good old Blue Magic Conditioner … Hair Dress (wtf is the “…” for?). I visited home this past weekend and saw a big jar of Blue Magic chilling on the sink at my aunt’s crib. Man, I can’t tell you the last time I felt the need to grease my scalp, particularly with something so thick and heavy! Growing up, however, this stuff was a staple in our house. Pretty much in every home I visited in my neighborhood, someone had a jar of Blue Magic in its blue or oddly-named green version. The ingredients in Blue Magic are: Petrolatum , Lanolin , Lecithin , Mineral Oil , Fragrance , and some blue stuff (Green 6 , Violet 2).
Nowadays, I don’t put much of anything in my hair after I leave the salon. When I wear a natural style, I use Aveda products or some local stuff like Buttershine from Salon E’tae.
By the way, if you’re in Philly I suggest you stop by for some of the products. They used to have a salon, but if you call, they can tell you the other salons in the area who are E’tae Concept Salons, meaning they use the E’tae method and products. If you’re outside of Philly, just order the stuff. I promise it’s GREAT!
Still, I couldn’t help but open the jar and take a whiff of that good old, familiar Blue Magic smell. Ahhhhh. Memories.
