First off I would like to say congratulations to Mrs. Fussypants on the arrival of the newest little Fussypants. I hope you are feeling wonderful, and if you are reading this, give that baby an extra squeeze from me. I would also like to say thank you to our interim host Kara. Thank you bunches!
Ok on with the show!
Today I am going to try to talk about something that is not as crazy as last week.
This week I am going to talk hair care. Several of you mentioned that you liked my hair, ok I think it might have actually been two or three. I want to thank you very much, but I did not get this hair on my own. Ok well I did grow my own hair, but I have help. :)
I have a wonderful hairdresser, who is one of my very dear friends. Now when you have a wonderful hairdresser, who is one of your very dear friends, they tend to tell you like it is. They also tend to tell you that the stuff you buy at Wally World and Tar-jay (say that with a french accent) is crap!! From personal experience I tend to believe said wonderful hairdresser, who is one of my very dear friends. When the budget has gotten tight, I have been known to go to Wally World or Tar-Jay (say that with a french accent) and get my "products". As a matter of fact up until about a three weeks ago, I was using some stuff from the drug store.
Lately though I had been wondering "what is up with my hair"? It just was not doing right, it looked dry and well just icky. So the last time I went and got my hair did, I did not mention the fact that I was using something not from a salon or a beauty store. She had scissors in her hands I was not about to mention that. My wonderful hairdresser, who is a one of my dear friends did tell me that my hair was really dry this time, I might want to get a deep conditioner. Well that is just great! I didn't want my hair being all dry and brittle!
So where did I go when I left there, yep you guessed it to my local beauty supply store. I had heard of this particular brand of hair stuff from a really popular blogger, and I thought its worth a shot. Now I don't even know if its the stuff she was talking about or I just know it was the brand name. So I picked up this stuff......
I also got this stuff.....
I really have liked it also. It is called "After Party" its for after you have styled your hair. You put just a little, and I mean just like a pea size in the palm of your hand and the rub your hands together and then smooth through your hair. Making sure to hit those areas, that have the most frizzy spots. Like around your face, and the tips of your hair.
Lastly I picked me up some shampoo and conditioner "Bed Heads, Self Absorbed". I think this part is really key to having well managed hair. Now I have secret to tell you, this is not my natural hair color. Nope not at all. I probably should use something for color or highlighted hair, but I really like using something that puts a lot of moisture back into my hair. That is why I choose this product. I had used it before and really liked it so I thought lets try it again.
Since I have gotten back on the boat for using really good products I can tell such a difference in my hair. Its amazing.
Now I am not telling you to go out and buy these particular products, but to find the best products for your hair type. Good products, not the stuff that is marked down to half price somewhere because they could not get it off the shelves.
Sometimes we have to spend a little more to get a little more. I also think that these products tend to last longer, because I don't have to use as much of it.
