Ready..Set..Results!

Posted on

The roller set came out excellent! Let me start by saying that I am fully convinced that these results were achieved, I solely believe on the L’Oreal Deep Conditioning Masque. Now, why do I say that? It is the only product that I used for the first time, and I roller set my hair all the time. Today, the hair was so soft and hydrated (like the product says) til it was unreal. I just sat with it on for about five minutes then rinsed. I felt the softness when I rinsed it out. I knew then the masque was doing its’ job. It had so much body, and I will not need to flat iron from root to tip, if I want to tame my roots, I will. I was so impressed that when I run out of my other shampoo, I will try the L’Oreal Ever Crème line. This was an absolute success. I did not use any setting lotion (I don’t feel the need to) I spray heat protectant on while hair is wet before roller setting. (silk results olive oil heat protectant spray)

I did use the Clairol Nice & Easy color system as well, and you know what? It was Perfect in 10, just like it said! My hair felt so clean, and it smelled amazing.

Back In The Game

So, the weather is changing, and that means my hair routine needs attention as well. I’ve decided to bring back my “night before wash pre-poo”. Whew that was long! So, the night before wash day, I will soak my hair in coconut oil (just my preference) when I run out of that, I’ll just use any cheap conditioner. I wrap my hair in a plastic cap and scarf til the next morning (wash day). I am currently using Silk Elements Olive Oil moisturizing shampoo. No special reason, it was just on sale. I will not repurchase when I run out. (which should be a while) Lately, I have not been faithful to any one product, just whatever is on sale. I decided to try L’Oreal Evercreme Deep Nourishing Masque though as my deep conditioner. This runs about six bucks for 5oz. I’ve heard good things, and the only negative….price and jar size. I mean, it is pretty small. The consistency of the product is very thick though. I tilted the jar for this pic, and it didn’t budge.

I’ve been giving my hair a break from the hair color, but when I do decide to color, I will be trying the Clairol Perfect10 by Nice & Easy. It’s supposedly only takes 10 minutes for long-lasting coverage.

Not making any promises, but Lord willing I will try and post pics of the results! Blog later guys.

So, I’m trying to get better at this manicure thing. I invested in a manicure & pedicure system. Tested it out very quickly today, and it’s okay. I figured I’d learn what I’m doing before investing in a more serious system.

I am a stay home mom, and I would occasionally get my nails professionally filled as a treat to myself. The sad part, I couldn’t get stuff done with the darn nails on! Please don’t let my scalp itch!! lol I found this at Walmart “Nail-aid 3minute Artificials” Can you say, “Where have you been?!” You use it as a base coat and top coat. Listen, I know I have kiddie nails ok, but my nail polish stays on so much longer, and there’s less chipping!

Washing Clothes, dishes, etc., I would have been chipped my polish by now!! It has been 4 days!! This was under 5 dollars…. Hopefully, this will help my nails grow. I’ll try and keep you posted!
