It's A Dark Day For Blonds

I have an Elaine "sponge" situation on my hands. Kiehl's has discontinued one of my summer staples; my never blond enough Chamomile shampoo!

I became hooked on Chamomile shampoo after reading that Christie Brinkley swore by the stuff for the blondest of locks, even washing her hair in the salty ocean water for maximum blondness. Of course, she being the pied piper of blondness, I became an immediate acolyte and followed her right into the sea...

So, what's a gal to do??? I'm taking a cue from Elaine and buying up every bottle on the NW side of DC during my 48 hour window back into town! Lookout Kiehl's of G'town and Blue Mercury, I'll be there first thing Friday morn, forklift in tow...


  1. Hah! Love the reference to the sponge. Perhaps you can convince them to reconsider??

  2. Oh dear, what's a blonde to do?
    I do love your humor in these tight situations in regard to supply and demand.

  3. Such a shame! But, once you run out, Kiehl's new Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo is amazing! It's sulfate free, so it will keep your blonde highlights from fading and it smells delicious!

  4. Since you love CB I thought I'd share this post w/you I wrote the other day.


    I'm due for new shampoo & will def try Kiehls. Great post, as usual!!

  5. I'll steer clear of your path of destruction! You're on a mission!

  6. Oh my, oh my! I need to run out and get a bottle before every store is out of stock! Actually, after you great review I might just have to buy two!

  7. Not if I get there first.... ;)

    That shampoo and the lip balm are my go-to Kiehl's products! Will my golden blonde locks fade away to a dull dirty blonde? Horrors!

  8. Wait... Is this better than the fekkai for blondes?? I need to know!


  9. I live 5 minutes from a Kiehls store. Let me know if you need me to go arrange a shipment for you!

    P.S. I'm laughing while remembering that scene from that sponge episode where Jerry thinks his girlfriend is such a good/perfect girl (which he finds a little troubling) and she asks him to get a towel from her closet and he walks in and she has boxes of sponges lined up from top to bottom. Bwhahahaha...

  10. Thanks for the heads up, I'll need to stock up.

  11. I love the Christie Brinkley book, the part you mentioned comes to mind all the time for me too! :)

    After you use up all your Kiehl's (I HATE when things I love are discontinued...I'm afraid to fall in love with perfume because this always happens) give Bumble & Bumble blonde products a try.

  12. You inspired me to try the chamomile shampoo...I went to Bloomies last night and they had a ton of it! I am not sure if I will get the same "lightening" results due to me being a redhead but I am hoping it will lighten the blonde pieces...thanks for the recommendation. Love the smell!
