2011 is just around the corner, and with a new year and plenty of new projects coming up, I felt it was time to update my ‘do. So I show up at my salon Local B with a plan (and a photo) of the hair I want. The next thing I know, my beloved stylist has surrounded my head with foam-like paper strips and teased the rest of my hair into a big ball of frizz! While anyone else might have whispered to themselves a “WTF?!”, I knew everything was under control (after all, she’s a pro). A mere three hours later I was done! Armed with a gorgeous ‘do and the discovery of a new product!
After styling my hair into big sexy waves, my stylist used the new Kérastase Elixir Ultime as the final touch. I have to say, I am smitten with this product. I have only recently (re)discovered hair oils and have always been a little apprehensive to use them, expecting my hair to become too greasy. But this did just the opposite, leaving my hair soft, silky and shiny while maintaining my big sexy oomph! Bonus: it smells yummy with a hint of coconut scent!
I love that today’s hair oils can give your hair that beautiful sheen without weighing your hair down. Another great thing about this product is that is nourishes your hair and acts as a deep conditioner, protecting it against everyday aggressors that can dull and damage your hair. Plus it’s great for getting rid of the static that most of us girls get in our hair this time of year!
And what does the finished product look like? Take a look!
