Time for some new hair products...

Hi Bellas,

So as y’all know I cut off my locks this weekend. I'm looking into donating them to Locks of Love...but I've heard that they don't accept dyed and processed hair...so I'll have to do a little more research.

Anywho, like Ethereal Prey mentioned on my wall, yay time for new hair products. I happened to go to Discovery Mill Mall here in Atlanta on Sunday to visit the CCO. It’s only 30 minutes away and the mall is really cool actually. It has regular stores that are all super huge along with outlets mixed in. I went to the CCO to look into getting some pigments. I figure if I do a look with pigments, and some of you guys really like it, I could sell you samples of what I used to recreate the look.

Well while I was there I spotted a beauty shop…kind of like a Sallys Beauty Supply. When I was in there, I picked up the combo/jumbo size of Bed Head’s Dumb Blond shampoo and conditioner. However, I think I really did have a blond moment because I thought I picked up a separate bed head product which was a reconstructor. It was in a smaller, silver tube. When I got home, I realized it was the same thing as the conditioner! This is what my hair stylist used on me. I don’t know if I can return this either…and since it’s like 30 minutes away I might just use the tube size version for when I travel. Anywho, since my hair is black naturally, I have to make sure and maintain the color at whatever cost so it doesn’t fade into that unattractive yellowish orange tint. I'm going to make it a point to really do my monthly touch ups--hopefully we’ll prevent this from happening.



I also purchased L’Oreal Nature's Therapy Hair Conditioner in a big old tub. I heard Anne and others mention that this stuff works wonders for turning chemically processed, dry hair into smooth hair that your man would actually want to run his fingers through. I got a huge jar so hopefully it works on me!


While I was there I also picked up about 4 pairs of falsies. They were all ardell invisibands and the lightweight kind. I wore some regular thick falsies the other day and they were just too heavy on my eyes, I couldn’t take it anymore. Hopefully these suckers will be a little more eye friendly.

I love the Dumb Blonde shampoo...it smells so good!
I would recommend Loreal Professional Silver Shampoo to maintain your blonde color and to keep it from going brassy. It's a deep purple in color, and on the bottle I believe it says it's for white hair...but it is the only thing that really helps keep the blonde. :) I love your cut too!
