Hair Today, Long Tomorrow.
In the quest to pull off the ultimate “real life” Heidi Klum pregnancy (I almost got it right), I have been trying to pick the perfect “hospital look” (trust me…it seems trivial…but you wait until 40 of your closest family and friends are bombarding your room with digital and instant cameras wanting to shoot pics of you after you’ve just pushed another human being through your body. You will be begging someone to shoot you with something else. Bibi gun…morphine drip….Pick your poison). As such, most recently, I have channeled my inner Beyonce and went blonde. Again. (Feria, by the way, ROCKS)
I came across some great sites that I loved when I was doing my channeling. One that I loved was The Hairstyler . Why do I heart it? Not only does it have several red carpet and celebrity styles and bridal ideas, BUT you can also upload your picture and see these styles on your face. Talk about virtual hair trial! That rocks! Remember you can always build volume, height and length by adding extensions. Talk to your stylists and have a pre-wedding trial to see if it is something you can acclimate yourself. to.
Before I moved back to the area, I was at my stylist weekly for deep conditioning treatments and styles. My stylists were from the Dominican Republic, so they used a lot of Dominican products. The absolute BEST for your hair, especially for women of color. I am so in love with the Alter Ego Garlic Hot Oil Treatment. The name may sound crazy, but I can assure you, it doesn’t smell bad at all and your hair will thank you. Also, try Silicon Mix. Both can be purchased at Blue Beez. Since there are no Dominican salons in this area, I do it all at home with my trust ionic dryer and round brush!
Enjoy the Rapunzel Effect!
