This post is mainly to update you about the Brazilian Blowout (keratin treatment) I had done exactly one month ago. Read more about that HERE. Well the big question you are all dying to know is do I still think it's worth it a month on? The answer is no.
Why? Because I don't think it has made that much difference, the first week was amazing, I never did anything to my hair, I air dried and then walked out the door. But now, the frizziness has been coming back. I also hate that my hair dried SOOO straight, it looked lifeless and boring. Yes it has made my hair a tiny bit more manageable but I get that when I use a serum. I will not be forking out my £££'s to repeat the treatment.
It is not a solution for damaged hair, it does make it look healthier and shinier, but there's no point in making it look healthy when it actually isn't. For reference I have been using a sulphate free shampoo, the one I purchased from the salon and washing my hair about 3x a week. This is just my personal experience, it has made my hair more manageable but I don't think it's made such a drastic difference for me to want it in my life forever. I think certain hair types will benefit more than others, for me it just hasn't been what I hoped it would be.
A few days ago I used a semi permanent hair dye by Garnier (herbashine) 600 light brown. Here's the results, I also cut a few more layers into the front of my hair and gave myself an overall trim. Yes I did it myself, why not. :)
I am really loving being brunette again, I did love the highlights a LOT but, this is just a bit more rich and chocolaty and I feel comfortable with it. With lighter hair, I felt like I needed more makeup.
Here's what my hair looks like from the back, I have been trimming it every 5 weeks in order to keep it healthy.
