I went in for my yearly hair cut a little early this year (I usually realize how long it’s been around my birthday in September). I know that’s really bad, but I always put off getting my hair cut because I want to be Rapunzel, and then by the time I realize my hair is getting ratty, I keep forgetting to make an appointment, and then next thing you know my birthdays here and it’s been another year since my last cut. This year my hair was longer than ever. No only did I have to stand up while my hairdresser cut the length, but even with my chair all the way down, she had to stand on her tippy toes while stretching my hair up to trim the layers. And it took almost an hour to blow dry my hair, poor girl. I definitely left a good tip for all her trouble. I’m 5’6 and had hair down to my butt when I went in, and now it’s just past bra strap level. And even though it pains me to see even those 4-5inches go, I know my hair looks so much healthier now.
Anyway, I had brought this, cold brewed, with me to the salon. Flavor wise it’s a little thin, but considering that it’s Acai, it kind of works. I always think of things that are acai flavored as lighter and more gentle in taste. The flavor is a little fake, but not all together bad. And there’s a nice lingering fruity aftertaste, that funnily enough packs more punch than the sip itself. The flavor isn’t my favorite, but it’s not bad, and is a good mellow option for staying hydrated when cold brewed.
