My Monday Review

Hello Everyone!!

Hope this Monday wasn’t to hard to get through. I know that after this weekend all I was thinking about was sleeping in. But sadly like everyone else I had to get up for work at seven.

Today I wanted to do my review for the month of August. So lets start off with why I decided to buy ALTERNA Haircare Bamboo™ UV+ Color Protection Rehab Deep Hydration Masque. So if you have read My Hair Nightmare before Graduation, then you already know of my hair dying experience.

So after the second trip to the salon that week my hair got damaged, so I bought this Bamboo™ UV+ Color Protection Rehab Deep Hydration Masque. I was looking for the best hair masque that was hydrating and safe enough for my blonde ends. When I found this masque at Ulta for $26.00, I thought it was a perfect match.

When I tried it for the first time, I left it in my hair for about 10 minutes which was more than they recommended. But I didn’t really see any huge difference between washes. As I kept using it I made sure that every time I used it, it would stay in my hair for over 5 minutes. I did notice that once I was almost done with it that my ends were more under control then they once were. But if you are looking for a drastic change then this isn’t the masque for you.

Now that I have finished it, I don’t think I would buy it again.

My Hair Nightmare before Graduation

Whoever said that hair dye was a modern girls best friend lied.

Like any girl I wanted to start dying my hair. I didn’t know the price I would pay for my curiosity. My hair was so out of control, that all I wanted to do was cut off all my hair. But lets start from the beginning.

I was so excited I had never dyed my hair and really wanted a change especially because my graduation was next week on a Monday. So naturally I asked friends and family that have dyed their hair if they recommended any salons. One of my cousin highly recommended this stylist to me that was in my area. I showed the stylist the ombre style I wanted and he said that he could do it. After three hours of work I see the final product and it was REALLY bad. Me being passive I just left the salon thinking I just needed to get use to it.

The next day I talked to my mom about my experience and she convinced me that I had to go and get my money back. After telling him how I felt about it and how it didn’t look anywhere near to what I wanted. He responded by saying that my hair could never do what I wanted in the photo.

I was so upset because it like, why did you mention this before. So I got my money back and I decided to go to Ulta. I spent about $200 on trying to fix my hair before my graduation. I love Ulta because the stylist will answer all your questions and they will be honest with you. Especially when it comes to maintaining your hair.

The girl I got was a savior, she recut my hair because the ends were so uneven and she re-dyed it into a caramel marble ombre. With her help and patience I was able to walk on graduation day with confidence.

So please do a lot of research before you pick a stylist and make sure they can do what you want.
