An Ode to the Chemicals in Herbal Essence Hairspray
Dimethyl Ether Alcohol
Rolling off the tongue, you do enthrall
Plus, you keep my hair in place and all
If I had your name? I’d have a ball!
Amino Methyl Propanol
My follicles will never fall
My hair it stands up straight and tall
Thanks Amino Methyl Propanol!
My hair’s tough . . . like linoleum
You’re better than petroleum
Now come here and take the podium!
Do I need to tell you that you’re great?
My hair conforms to your mandate
(Perhaps you are my hair’s soul mate)
You’re name’s so long it’s quite insane!
But you’ve got my hair on a ball and chain
Your the next best thing since urethane
I think you gave my hair a spinal?
Either that or it’s suicidal
Whatever the case, your say is final
My hair’s addicted to you alone
And wondering if you’d give a loan
Cause it needs to buy some methadone
Until next time . . . I love you

Hi Linda, happy new year, best wishes for 2016
Isn’t it sad the stuff we have to use to make ourselves look beautiful….but we do it most days don’t we…..have a good one my friend…
Thank you Michael. I wish you all the very best in this new year!! It is sad all the toxic chemicals we have to use to keep us looking our finest! What I don’t understand is where they come up with all these chemicals and how do they mix them all together to come up with hairspray. But then I never took chemistry. But something tells me even if I would have, I still wouldn’t have a clue.
I can’t wait to see what rhymes with the bat feces they use in mascara. 🙂
Say what? Really? Bat feces in Mascara? Holy Bat Feces!
Bat Feces!!!!! The poem is great and so true!!!
Thank you Chris. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Now I want to get a hamster or a gold fish or something just so I can name it Dimethyl Ether Alcohol.
Being a proud son of Baltimore, you had me at Hairpsray
Really? So Baltimore is the hairspray capital of the world?
I wish this was how every bottle of shampoo listed their ingredients. I’d never have to buy a book again! I’d just read the label while my body ingested each entertaining ingredient in the bath.
LOL! I me an entertaining ingredient! 🙂
Don’t forget to add this to Linda’s big book of colouring! Be sure to use the Brittish spelling for “colour” for some reason
Hahahahaha! For some reason!
Näin lopetat virke. (Oh, wait. I thought you asked for help Finnishing your sentences. Unsilly me.)
Thank you for finishing my sentence in Finnish. I’ll take all the help I can geT!
Addendumb. What the Helsinki was I thinking.
I’m not sure what the Helsinki you were thinking, I’ll try to Copenhagen with it. (Had to borrow a town from Denmark for that pun as I think Finland has only the one town and you already used it!) And thanks for following, welcome Eric!
Ah! Thanks Ned. So glad you liked it. 🙂
Bravo. Here, here! Lots of laughs. Excellent. 🙂

Oh thanks for that heads up. I’ll have to go figure out how to get that button turned on. You wouldn’t happen to know would you?
