The rose-geranium scent lingers faintly in your hair.

I have a hair-twirling problem for which I am widely ridiculed. In the annals of neurotic behaviors, I feel that hair twirling is a lesser offense, neither self-destructive nor particularly grotesque—though I concede the girlishness of the gesture might be less professional than the ideal.

In any case, a new Aveda shampoo and conditioner exacerbate my problem dramatically: Together, they leave your hair so soft that truly it’s impossible to resist touching it and touching it again. Despite the new, marked softness, my hair drooped not at all. It looked the same, it just felt—luxuriously, immeasurably—more touchable.
