*hugs* to sherylyn because she is the bestest. I went to the hairdressers on Saturday to have the head o' hair coloured, cut, conditioned and such. I was talking with the said hairdresser about the fact that my hair never feels the way it does leaving the solon when I do it. I use a straightener on it, all the same products she does, and my hair ends up flyaway, dry feeling and just basically unmanagable. The hairdresser said that it's the straightener that makes a difference and the ones that you buy in a drugstore do not get hot enough to work on the hair (or maybe it's just my hair it doesn't work on). The straightener they use in the solon is a professional grade, and it can be purchased in the solon.
I decided not to buy it then and there, because I had just forked over $160.00 to have the hair coloured (I take "extra colour" because of how much hair I have), conditioned, cut, and styled, plus my eyebrows waxed (yes, I pay for pain), plus I had to buy conditioner for home. So, I decided to think about it before I purchased.
I also have to fork over money to have my engagement ring fixed. To the tune of $300.00.
Anyway, sherylyn and I were Y!Ming on Saturday night, and I was telling her my saga. She told me she loved her hair straightener, that it gets super-hot, and that it was reasonably priced (around 30 bucks) at Sally's Beauty Supply. So I finally found a convenient Sally's and stopped yesterday and bought the recommended straightener.
I could just kiss sherylyn .
Best 40 bucks I've spent on a hair appliance ever.
I played with it some last night, and then again this morning, and I've had people stopping and telling me how wonderful my hair looks. They want to know if I went to the salon last night.
My hair looks and feels like it does when I leave the salon. And this is coming from the gal who does not primp. At all. But I love the way my hair looks and feels after using this product. 'Tis wonderful.
So thank you, sherylyn , for sharing this gem with me. *hugshugshugshugs* and a little bit of Hugh just for good measure. *grin*
In other news, I'm calling the doc today to work on adjusting my hormones. His day off was yesterday. I'm hoping we get things set soon. I can't stand the way I'm acting. Esp. at home. At least I realize what the problem is. That's part of the battle. And at least I'm willing to do something about it.
And as always, please click the link in my LJ for breast cancer. Help fund those mammograms.
