Dirty Hair and Self-Care with Doree Shafrir

Dirty Hair and Self-Care with Doree Shafrir

This week Emily is joined by Forever35 co-host (and fellow Old Internet™ alum) Doree Shafrir. Emily and Doree talk about the self-care (and basic hygiene) rituals they had to let go of during lockdown, virtual bra fittings, and the baby products they love to use on themselves. Doree also opens up about the backlash she received from a handful of Forever35 listeners shortly after her son was born.
