Put $100 a Year Into A Retirement IRA By Having Shinier Hair!
Would Another $100 a Year Help Your IRA?
The Problem: Washing Your Hair Every Two Days and It's Still Not Shiny---Plus---Your Roth IRA is EMPTY!
Many are buying great hair condtioner and finding their hair still needs to be washed every other day. Does it seem like there is something wrong with this picture?
People try all kinds of expensive conditioners and spend lots of money trying to get cleaner, shinier hair. Not only are these products expensive even if one only spends $8 a month, but that money would be more productive going into one's Roth IRA!
The author spent years experimenting with myriad conditioners and washing her hair every day or other day, and found after two days her hari was again limp.....she took it upon herself to try lemon juice just because folklore says it makes hair shiny. Rather than rinsing her hair with expensive conditioner she put a few drops of lemon juice into a cup of water and poured it over her head....just to be sure, this was done two more times.
What happened was her hair was shiny and felt clean. A couple of days later it was STILL shiny and clean. She thought...how can this be? So again she washed her hair and rinsed with the lemon water and her hair lasted days longer without looking wilted and bland.
Could lemon juice do what expensive conditioners could not do? Yes! It got the soap out of the hair...and this is what causes hair to go limp and dull.
One day the author was out of lemon juice. What could be used instead? From chemistry it is known that lemon Juice changes the acidity of the water and thus the PH of the water. So the writer needed to identify something on hand that was acidic.
Yes! The answer is: ASPIRINS DISSOLVED IN A CUP OF WATER! Aspirin is really salicylic acid and will cause the pH change just as lemon juice.
The aspirins worked! Her hair was clean and shiny but didn't have that great lemon smell to it. So now,when one goes on vacation to ensure pretty hair, always take some aspirin in the suitcase.
Whether one chooses to use aspirin or lemon juice it probably saves about $100 a year on conditioner and does a better job.
One can put the money saved into their ROTH IRA and in five years this will have accumulated to $500 from money NOT SPENT on conditioner! And that doesn't even include the compounded interest.
There it is! Grandma was right....Now---before leaving this page, check out the book below. Don't put off getting that IRA, especially for those in their twenties. Remember-each year starting early with the IRA yields exponential results as time goes by.
This hub won't look so silly when you look at your balance sheet in ten years!
