i did it! i actually subjected my unsullied, undefiled hair to the world of chemicals and processing. and you know what? i may be spoiled for life. last week i went to a popular koreatown salon to get a digital perm. although i was pretty terrified before, during, and the first 2 days after the process, i have no regrets and am very pleased with the results. the goal was to obtain luscious wavy curls that a) had staying power and b) were easy to maintain. so far, the digital perm has met both objectives!
one of my dear friends works in a salon and recommended the halo line of products specifically formulated for curly (natural & permed) hair. gotta protect the investment, right? it meets all of my needs in a hair product: smells delicious, is adorably packaged and it works! at $16-$18 per item, the price is not bad for professional hair care products.
shampoo, conditioner, and curl enhancing crème
best of all, the system is such a breeze to use! i wake up, use the shampoo & conditioner, and then towel dry my hair. after 10-15 mins or so, i rub a small amount of product all over my hair, from roots to tips. then, i twist my hair into sections. that’s it! i let it air dry and the look lasts all day. if i was one to spend time doing my hair, i’m sure a blow-drying with a diffuser would make the look even more polished. too bad i can’t bear to spend more than 15 minutes doing hair or makeup!
ok, ok… i’ll share a pic because i know the blog police won’t let me get away without one.
ta-da! this is me on saturday at a lovely wedding at the kellogg house. (such a charming venue, btw!) i’ll note that this is after 11 hours in 90 deg temps, so the hair is a bit wilted with sweat. haha but i love it! easy, beachy hair without rollers or a curling iron.
and just for fun, here’s a pic with my darling asSIStant anna. she’s always asking why she doesn’t get enough press time on the blog… haha! i will do a fun interview with her soon so you can all get to know her a bit better. she’s a crucial part of the execution of each and every wedding i do and i’m so lucky to work with my little sis. <3
me and my stunning sis!
hope you all had a fabulous labor day! xoxo, angel
