My whole life, I had crazy long hair.
And I loved it. I really really loved it.
But then, boredom with that long blonde hair crept up on me. And one day, I did this:
It was so dark. But I liked it, for about two weeks. I thought I’d look exotic. I now realize that I’m never going to look like Princess Jasmine, no matter what I do. Shocker. Note to self: You are white.
So I started the process of getting it back to blonde. It takes forever (if you want to make sure your hair doesn’t fall out).
That was the in-between color that was a little bit red. I actually didn’t mind it. Gradually, with more and more highlights, it was back to blonde again.
And then. I went in for a trim one day. A TRIM. And left with this:
Let’s assess, shall we? That “one inch” was actually at LEAST 4 inches. Tear. Sob.
And thus I’ve spent the last 6 months trying to get it back long again. That includes investing a good deal of money on stuff I wasn’t positive was going to work.
I’ve been taking Viviscal supplements for about 2 months now. They say you really start to see results around 2-3 months. It has 4 stars on Amazon and I read numerous places that it really can help. It’s basically like fish oil and biotin on crack. It’s also a whopping $47 a month. Yikes!
Then, after I got a new hair lady, she suggested insisted that I get Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner. Normally, I hate when stylists push products on you. Come on, I’m already paying at least $130 (cough$200cough) for the cut and color! But she talked me into it, because I couldn’t get that long hair I crave out of my head.
