Highlights

Image

So, I previously swore off damaging agents from my hair such as bleach and dyes and such. However, I got the itch to highlight my hair after seeing some cute highlights on some natural bloggers I follow. I decided that I didn’t want to spend the money to have them professionally done, so I enlisted the help of one of my friends and we did them ourselves. It was pretty much the effect I was seeking, and it gives me a reason to keep up with moisturizing and protein deep conditioning treatments so that my hair can stay healthy. Plus, I love color!!!! I only highlighted pieces from the front quarter of my hair as it was quicker and minimizes any damage that may occur. I mixed equal parts of Clairol Pure White 20 developer and the powder lightener, placed foils under the hair and applied the mixture. Once I was done with a section, I waited until I was happy with the color and washed it out section by section to avoid over-processing.

I’ve Been Jaded!

I’m so excited about this! I’ve gotten the most fantastic haircut ever! I’m sure many of you have heard of Tameeka of Jaded Tresses and Christo salon. I heard about her from Hairscapades and she also came to one of the Hairscapades meet ups. After seeing her work I decided that I had to get a haircut from her. Plus the shape of my hair when it was curly was absolutely horrible! Plus, for the month of August, she offered a few promotions, one which included a haircut for $100 instead of the normal $155. I made an appointment right away and the next day I was on my way to the Christo salon in NYC on Fifth Avenue (I know, real fancy). I walked out happily satisfied with tresses that were even and healthy! My wash n gos look BOSS now, and I’m able to get up to 4th day hair, (previously I never even got 2nd day hair out of a wash n go). I’ll definitely be seeing her again soon!
