So after I came home from the hospital, I was a hot ass mess. I mean hotter than hot. I looked like something out of The Color Purple who met Side Show Bob’s stylist and slept with Meg Griffin. I was too swollen and my back and leg pain from the epidural was unbearable. Standing in front of a mirror nevertheless attempting to stand in a shower was not happening. I could barely walk 1 MPH. So I decided to get it done.
Clearly, I couldn’t travel far. Luckily I have a salon directly across the street but I’ve never been there. I heard its good so I decided to give it a try. I walked up to the first stylist I saw and spoke with her. She said I didn’t need to bring products but if I wanted to use something then the bring it. I told her I only wanted a wash and set.
The next day, I tried to sneak and see what she was using. I believe she washed with affirm shampoo. Then she used my SD VS conditioner and added a hot oil treatment to my hair. I sat under a hot dryer for 20 minutes. Then she blew out my hair on medium with a comb attachment. She even huffed because my hair takes forever to dry. She applied a spray leave-in which honestly I think was lotta body. That stuff is every professionals fave. Then she flat ironed and used some IC heat protectant. I think the iron was too high, thinking it was somewhere between 350 and 400 because my hair was bone straight. I was scared my hair wouldn’t revert, but it did, so ok.
I will say, I was impressed with the overall result.
I kept my hair for two weeks and three days. It could have survived longer, but I didn’t want it to dry out and it needs to be up for a while. But I will admit, I see myself going to her every few months for a good flat iron.
Definitely impressed with her and her knowledge. She also does natural hair, so that explains how she does hair so well. I ain’t natural, but I’m a puff ball still. Sad though that it took for me to leave salons to really find someone good. DH wants me to see her bi weekly, but I’m not trying to lose what I’ve worked so hard for.
And now, for the next wash day post. When I find time to get to it lol.
One Day, It Will Happen
