Every girl has an obscene attachment to their hair. Hair is a way you can express yourself, a way you can easily change your look, and for many females, it’s a way of life! You know, like blondes.
I’ve had many a bad haircut, and other traumatic experiences with my hair when I was younger, from frizzy bangs, to being teased for having a “muff,” and even having a majority of it fall out due to an extremely long and high fever I had when I was 15. My hair is my life, but I’ve learned that it always grows back, so you would think I’d be OK actually cutting it more often than I actually do.
About a month ago, I chopped off a good six inches. Something I haven’t done probably since college or so. My hairdresser, who I’ve been going to since I was 15, and seen me at my worst, was a little concerned, giving me a good ol’ Long Island, “Are you shaw, Lau?!” And I was.
Before I could see the final product, she told me I had to sit with conditioner in my hair for a bit, and this stuff will really help my hair. I’m not really a hair product snob, I’m good with some drug store Garnier Fructis, and store brand hair gel, so I didn’t really think anything of it.
OK – this is where smell-o-internet needs to be invented, because the stuff she put in my hair, Saphira Mineral Mud, smelled heavenly. I can’t even use the correct words to describe it to actually convey the smell.
The smell wasn’t even half of it. I’ve never seen a comb or brush make it through my hair so smoothly in all of my 31 years on the planet. Even after the blow-drying and ironing, my hair was soft to the touch.
She sent me home with some samples, which she usually does, but this time I actually used them! Once I ran out, I knew I needed to actually buy the product, but noticed it wasn’t for sale on Amazon.com, but only at hair salons.
I told my mom about it, and she went and picked me up a tub of it and brought it to me this weekend. I couldn’t wait to dive right into it!
It was about $45, which isn’t a price I typically would pay for a hair product, but given the size of the tub, and the fact that it’s actually a good product, I am sold!
