Hi! Welcome back!
I wanted to share a bit about what I am doing so that I no longer feel the need to cut my hair.
I decided to quit cutting/ trimming altogether right after I got it trimmed in November. The young lady, Alexis, at Regis Salon, did a wonderful job~ she always does. "Dust off the ends. What could we do to soften my look?" And she did just that!
But, the softer look made the fact that I had again been disobediant to God and cut my hair something I could no longer pretend I wasn't doing/ was okay to do. I had to deal with the fact that The Word says women are Not to cut our hair. I had to deal with the fact that I had been told this years ago, but had refused to see it.
I sat down with myself and looked at what I could do to keep my hair healthy without a trim every eight weeks? The simple answer: spend the $27.00 plus $5.00 tip from the haircut on proper hair care supplies!
Since I sell Avon...
I purcahsed a few products designed to keep my tresses lovely.
First, I thoroughly brush my hair with a shampoo brush before I shampoo to loosen and dirt and dead skin cells. This brushing also stimulates my scalp, bringing more nutrition to each hair follicle!
Second, I shampoo with Avon's Advance Techniques Color Protection Shampoo~ shampoo, rinse and repeat. The first shampoo further loosens the dirt, the second washes it away. Then I rinse thoroughly.
Third, I condition with Avon's Advance Techniques Color Protection Conditioner, leaving it on while Iwash my face, ears, neck and back. Then rinse that out thoroughly and towel dry.
Fourth, I apply a generous amount of Avon's Advance Techniques Color Protection Heat Infusion Treatment. Then I comb it through and braid. I know the package says to leave in three minutes and rinse, but my hair calls for desperate measures! I use it as a leave-in conditioner!!!
I go to sleep like this. I allow the heat generated between my head and the pillow and blankets to create the effects of applying a heat cap.
In the morning I unbraid my hair and apply Avon's Advance Techniques damage repair 3D rescue (if needed) followed by Avon's Advance Techniques frizz control lotus shield (depending on my desired style). Then I comb it through.
As far as styling goes, I realized last week that my ends were really dry (the reason for the new program), so I decided to only have it down and cute on Sundays and other special occassions. The rest of the week I twist it up on my head and put a huge clip on it. This allows the conditioner to bake in all day every day!
My hair is already so much softer and silkier!
I spent less than for the haircut!!!!!!!
