Along with my all my nail polish I brought home a bunch of hair product last week - because I am going to have at least one good hair day this summer! My hair has been a B*tc# to work with since I was about 28. It just lost it's beautiful natural curl, got thinner and mega frizzy. I tried growing it out for the last 5 years - yeah, 5 YEARS. I wanted hair like Blake Lively so bad.
First up Christophe Professional Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner - from their site: "Adds body & volume to limp, lifeless hair. Cristophe Professional Volumizing Shampoo adds fullness to fine, limp hair and helps you create a full-body style! Special thickening ingredients deliver long-lasting volume without weighing down your hair. This salon formula nourishes and adds body to eliminate flat & lifeless hair."
This of course sounds wonderful to me and it was buy one get one 50% of at Ulta, plus I had my 20% off coupon and it has a mail in rebate! Score! I also got some shaping hair spray and the Volumizing Spray tonic:
"Cristophe Professional Volumizing Spray Tonic adds fullness to fine, limp hair and helps you create a full-body style. Special thickening ingredients deliver long-lasting volume without weighing down your hair. This salon formula nourishes and adds body to eliminate flat & lifeless hair."
I figured I need to try something else besides my usual - which is just an attempt to fight frizz. I think I need to fight frizz AND attempt to make my hair bigger like these lovely ladies:
It was also time to renew my Sally's Beauty Club Membership so I made a stop there.
So you always get a free Ion product when you renew your membership so I got some Shaping Plus fine mist hairspray. It has a 5 star rating on Sally's website - and I am going to need it to keep my hair looking like the gals above right?
They also had a deal where if you bought 2 Ion Solutions products you got $3 off - so I got a thickening spray and an Anti-Frizz Gel Mist. With the $3 off and the free hairspray I walked out Sally's with these three for just over $10.
I also spotted a mini straighter of clearance:
I have a regular straightener but I was like for $9 - this would be great for getting closer to my head and I gave in.
All in all, my Hair Haul came in under $40! That's less than a haircut (at least in Chicago!) So now I just need to stop being lazy and make it a good hair summer - hopefully I'll have some decent pics soon.
What do you love/hate about your hair?
