It’s a new year and I’m trying a new thing by documenting my try-on with pictures!! Whew, I can’t believe I’m doing this!
Well, as with all of my IPSY blogs, I will give you details on what I received!
January’s glam bag was quite fitting with the new year, resolutions and clean slates with the theme being “Clean Slate”. This bag focuses on the basics of beauty: clean skin, new brushes, and the classic red lippie.
As you may know, I am natural (hair not chemically treated) and have been for nearly 8 years! My hair grew, suffered damage, grew again and has been trimmed away. A few months ago, I’ve experienced stress related breakage which caused my armpit length to become barely shoulder length today. Now that that I am started this new hair journey, I wanted to try something different. Something that will make my hair more manageable and will promote growth. So for 7 months, I’ve been researching alternatives to relaxers (yeah it got serious). Luckily, my research ended where I found a stylist near by who specializes in Softliss Keratin Treatments. Â I messaged her with questions and she educated me and reassured me that I would be grateful if I did it, but did tell me to continue my research. And I did!
After our family vacation( blog to come) and a few weeks, I scheduled my appointment July 31. THE BEST DECISION I’ve ever made!!
The process is pretty simple. My hair was cleansed 3 times. Then it was set for about 10 minutes…blow dried and flat ironed…then washed again and finally blow dried, flat ironed, trimmed and styled. The process was 2 hours total! Just as my specialist promised! She walked me thru the entire process the whole way through!
Well, two weeks later in 90+ degrees in Texas, my hair is still holding up! I washed my hair August 14 and here’s my hair after a wash. Pictures below documents my 2 week old hair before my first wash post treatment….my hair after the wash and condition…..then after blow drying and flat ironing.
TheÂ treatment will last up to 4 months depending on my wash schedule. Only stipulation is that I wash my hair with sulfate free products! Not a problem! I love theÂ manageability of my hair! This was a great decision for my hair. Being natural, I’ve learned so much. My hair is unique and what works well with one person does not means it’ll work for me. I can’t wear my hair in its natural state comfortably without the fear of tangles, knots and breakage. The Softliss Treatment takes away those fears. I can style my hair easily and confidently. The price tag of this treatment was well worth the investment!
Stay tuned for my One Month Update!
