If you are aware of set-wet hair gel from 2004 (I think it was 2004), we were obsessed with the idea of it. My sister, cousins and I decided to get the ₹10 pack just to try it. I remember the advertisement showing some very drastic changes and we all wanted our hair to look like that especially the wet hair look.
So, four of us chipped in ₹ 2.50 each and it was a huge deal. It was also a great sacrifice for all of us as adding another 2.50 would have bought us delicacies like Dairy Milk with Powerpuff girl’s stickers. (Our front door was like a big board of stickers!!!)
When we finally got our hands on the new blue gel, our happiness knew no bounds. I swear to god I felt like that was the coolest thing ever. The blue tube with goopy thing inside would make us look like a million bucks.
We were quite young to understand that the amount that came in a ₹10 tube was too little for four kids. Anyway, we squirted a bit in our hands and applied it, giggling the whole time. We didn’t dare apply more, as our parents didn’t know about this ‘secret’. So, we all planned that one of my cousin sisters would keep it with her and we would use it whenever we want.
And then after that day we never got to use it again, because apparently the sister who was supposed to keep it ‘safe’ used it all by herself and the bad news is, us three got to know about it after months! Sadly to say, it was quite heart breaking.
P.S.- We still make her feel guilty for using it all. xD Sorry but not sorry!
