Beast mode.

How fab does my hair look after it air dries. -Oh and I didn’t brush it either 😉
BEF5E86B-7AFB-40D9-B647-739BB51AF1C0
My sisters/friends have always asked me why I bother getting my hair blown out if it looks this great after it air dries. -I don’t know the answer to that.

Products I used:
Shampoo: 2x with Happy hour shampoo then On the rocks.
Conditioner: Happy hour
Serum when it was wet: drybar 100 proof treatment oil
Spray after I work up this morning on dry hair: Sparkling soda shine mist
XoXo,
Anyut

      Hi Mary, yes it’s pretty light. I’m letting it grow out. It looks funny with my dark hair and light roots.

      I decided to grow it out. I will not be dying it anymore. This way I don’t compromise my hair texture, and plus between work school and family life I don’t think I have hours to waste at the salon to lighten it.

      Hi Emma, I love your name it’s my younger sisters name. Yes, I love a few different ones. For years I used the one from Enjoy it is their Conditioning Spray. I now really like the Sun Bum 3 in 1 leave-in (I spray very little) it smells amazing and makes your hair VERY silky and smooth but it’s a heavy product, and I really like the Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave in by Briogeo. Hope this helped. And thank you so much for following. Xo

Weekly Blow Out

Hey Guys!

I harassed Suzy, the owner of Monroe Salon, long enough to order me this product:
D6A1F5DF-E17B-40BC-AB63-90609AD2BF7CIt is the brunette version of the Shimmer.Me that I bought a while back.  It smells like COCONUT and the Tobacco Vanilla perfume by Tom Ford! So of course I needed it in my life.

This was the one I bought first, even though it says it’s for blonde hair, it still gave amazing shine and made my hair silky smooth. This one smells like old lady perfume but it got the work done.

      I don’t really do anything special. I drank itworks hair vitamins postpartum. But that is about it. I use good hair products, but I don’t think the fullness has anything to do with that. I don’t bleach my hair often, I try to keep it healthy by cutting off an inch or 2 every so often.

    Ur hair makes me want to dye mine back to black
    Also, are u having Suzy at Monroe Salon do ur hair? I know uve had her dye ur hair before but if u are planning to go more than a shade lighter I can tell u from my experience that I haven’t had good results with her sorry to say :/
    She took my hair lighter (not blonde lighter) from black too and my hair hasn’t recovered since. And I tried her out more than just once because I’m all for giving someone the benefit of the doubt, but since her attempt to lighten my jet black hair, I’ve spent so much time and money trying to repair the damage.
    Just my 2 cents would hate to see ur beautiful black hair get ruined.

    PS I think black is ur color 🙂

      Hi Emme. Ty I love black hair but I have had it for the past 15 years. 2 times I have had it lightened to a nice brown once it was done by Artur at Art Loris and once by Suzy. They both did a great job and didn’t damage my hair. It sucks that you had such a bad experience. I had driven them both crazy by reiterating over and over again how much it meant to me to go through the process slow in order to not damage my hair. Realistically I accept that some will be damaged so I would get trims and use great treatments, but they honestly both did a great job. We are going to go slow again and see what happens. I will post the results as we go along. Thanx for your input hun.

    Hi Anyut..I’m also in the process of lightening my hair from blue black and I too am going through the slow process in order to keep my hair as healthy as possible. In the past Alen M. has done my balayage but back then I had brown hair. Apparently they don’t take anyone with ANY black in their hair now. I have messaged @harttofcolor from butterfly loft salon but haven’t heard back yet. I went to violet in Burbank for my first session of full highlights and I was THAT happy with my results. Who wld you recommend for my next session? I want to do it asap! Thanks in advance.

      Hi Vanuhi jan. Ya I have heard that most stylist don’t take clients with black hair. I think those stylist just don’t want the headache of potentially burning the clients hair and having to deal with it. In my opinion they are not confident in their work and don’t want the challenge (or can’t handle it). A true color guru can only do that. I love those stylist that work with brown hair give them nice highlights and consider themselves to be great colorists when ANYONE can do that lol. Anyway I love Suzy’s work at Monroe, Sako (Rocco) and Penthouse in Glendale, I think they do great color! I just think you need to annoy the shit out of them by constantly reminding them to go slow and not jeopardize the texture of your hair. Thats what I have always done. Try out Suzy, she really is great.

    OMGG please be careful!! SUZY at MONROE burned the living life out of my hair, I will NEVER step a foot into that salon, she didn’t even take fault for it which says a lot about her you have beautiful hair please be careful .. I have thick coarse brown hair she lightened it to a vanilla blonde (no one has ever burned my hair because I have good thick hair) so for her to burn my hair says a lot.. just be careful.. I’m currently still recovering , I’ve spent so much money and I’ve been in hibernation mode because of what she did to me .

Not to mention how my head would feel dirty. So….no more extensions for me. EVER AGAIN.

Hair Care

Hey Guys,

I finally dyed my roots today! The last time I had my hair dyed was mid-December by Artur at Art Loris. I found a brand new tube of Elgon in Nero in my drawers so I decided to do my roots after the kids fell asleep. I love having freshly dyed hair. Secret: When I do my roots I only do the front top of my head, my crown. Lmao, the rest of my hair has about 1 inch of light ash brown roots but it doesn’t show. I am way too lazy to apply black dye all over my head and possibly ruin my bathroom. So until I visit Artur again (which will be soon) I will just pretend have to have a full head of freshly dyed roots :). Anyway, you guys know that my love for beauty products goes way beyond just make-up and skin care. I also have a insane obsession for hair products DUH.

Routine:

After I get out of the shower the first thing I apply to my wet tangled hair is a spray leave-in detangled.
Today I used this baby: Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray by Briogeo
IMG_1187
Right after I brush my hair (by the way, the only time I EVER put a brush to my head is straight out of the shower lol, other than that, I never take a brush to my hair, EVER.) Getting back to the point, right after brushing my hair the next step is taking a small amount of hair serum (oil) and hair cream, mixing them together in the palm of my hand, and applying it to my hair. Starting from mid shaft to the ends. I never go up to my scalp. That will cause my hair to get greasy immediately and make my hair limp. For the past 2 weeks this has been my go to combo for oil and cream.
Kerasatse Elixir Oil Cream and Sally Hershberger ’24K Golden Touch’ Nourishing Oil.
IMG_1184
The combination of these 2 give me shiny, soft hair that smells to die! Of course I apply a very small amount because after I blow dry, or let my hair air dry, I apply another serum/oil for more shine. I can’t stress how much the amount you put matters. You want your hair to look shiny but CLEAN lol, you don’t want to look like a grease ball who needs to shower.
XoXo,
Anyut

      I use a round brush when I blow dry, what I meant when I said I don’t put a brush to my head is I don’t brush my hair on a daily, like after I blow dry or a day later. lol hope that makes sense. But I do use a round brush when I blow dry, I have posted it before.
