Well, honey, you were just confused (not ashamed or being modest). What with the all those nasty chemicals floating around, you just thought for a moment you were at home, in your living room, now didn't you?!?! {{smile}} If your hairdresser is old enough to understand the meaning of all that, I'm sure that she (or he) completely understood!!!
