All the good hair ju-ju sent my way worked!!! I just came back from my first haircut with Rosie and I am a happy girl!
Me just before I left to get the cut:
Me after my cut:
I asked Rosie to cut a good amount of length off for the summer (it grows really fast) and to really give me some volume up-top (I'm a product of the 80's, whadda ya gonna do). Basically, to add more rock 'n roll to my hair. It's hard to see because I'm wearing a black tee but I have heaps of texture, loads of volume all around and my hair feels light. I have one product in my hair and I could not believe the volume it gave me that I purchased some on the spot.
The salon has recently switched from my beloved MOP products to KEVIN.MURPHY. I was worried as I loooooooove my MOP Basil Mint Shampoo (which is all I have used in my hair for the past two years).
I've tried loads of products, including MOP products, to add the volume I've been seeking but nothing really works in my heavy coarse hair. Today Rosie put ANTI.GRAVITY in my hair and I can not tell you how flipping amazingly this stuff works. It's oil free so it doesn't feel like there is any product in my hair and it looks like I have photo-shoot volume without the teasing or sticky/tackiness of mega hairspray. Plus it smells like lavender aromatherapy without overpowering my hair with perfume.
I still have loads of Basil Mint Shampoo (it lasts for months, BTW) so I will wait to try the KEVIN.MURPHY shampoos but I am excited to do so. MAXI.WASH was recommended for my hair. FYI, it seems like these products have a high price tag but they last for months as you only need a tiny bit to get the job done. You can check around for better deals as well.
Have a wonderful weekend!
