View Full Version : I got my hair all fixed up, today (pix)

April 29th, 2009, 06:31 PM
After reading about a few horror stories here, and remembering my own, I was a wee bit nervous. But my hairstylist listens really well, and when she worked her magic, all the dead dry and split ends were gone, and only half an inch was missing.
She also advised me to not bother shampooing more than once a week and to stick to conditioner in between.
My hair does not look much different than when I went in, it's just healthier, softer and shinier, which is exactly what I wanted. :)






She said that from now on, she'd only touch up my roots and not trim unless there's a real problem, she knows I want to go back to waist length.
A good day. :)

It looks very healthy. Gorgeous color in the sun, too. :)

It's always good to hear a success story. Happy growing; lovely start.

Thanks, Gals! (I snapped the pics in the sunlight to show texture, I'm glad it worked out!)
I'm still dumbfounded that my hairstylist brought up CO washing, though. How cool! :D

Sounds like you've netted a great stylist there!

I can't even see a difference, which in this case is what we want. It feels softer and looks as good. Happy growing!

Yay! It's awesome that you have such a great stylist. I wish there were more positive stories about salons on here. :cheese: It looks fantastic, very shiny! :)

Beautiful shine!! You have very pretty hair !!

Thanks again, everyone! :)
I think if hairstylists took the time to listen to their clients and do exactly as the client asks, instead of deciding what is "really best" for the client :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: they would get a lot more repeat long time customers instead of one shot deals that leave the salon frustrated and annoyed.
I find that taking 5 or 10 mn to talk with the hairstylist before they get started is really important. That way they can't say "ooops, you should have told me".
