Back to the Basics ....

Hello Ladies & Gents !!

Let me fill you in on what's going on with me since I last blogged ...

On October 13th 2011, I got my hair colored THE EXACT same color again !!! I LOVE IT !!! It had been almost 4 months since I initially colored it. I love it so much!!! I found out the name and brand of the color for those who asked. My stylist uses Salerm brand, #6.4 and my color is simply called "Dark Copper Brown". Here is a link to it !!

Ever since June, I've been wearing my hair straightened. Well after 5 months, I've had enough !!! My hair is already colored and the constant heat thing is going to start taking a toll if I don't give my hair a rest. I started watching some youtube videos looking for perm rod/flexirod ideas, and now I'm back on the rollersetting bandwagon!!! I really would <333 LOVE to see my hair reach my waist by my birthday in February. I don't know how realistic this goal is, but I'm going to try my best !! I purchased some smaller sized rods so that I can rock the curly fro for an extended amount of time. Right now, my plan is to use rollers in the 7/8", 1", and 1 & 1/4" diameters (yellow, tan, and turquoise, pictured respectively)

I also went ahead and treated myself to a floor standing/rolling hair dryer. I love my old faithful table top dryer, but honestly it was a pain propping it on tables or books. I could never seem to get it to the right height. I also have a soft bonnet hair dryer that I can use on the bed or floor, but the air distribution was never even, and I could never get it completely over my rollers either. I'm glad I no longer have to worry about any of those issues!!

My new dryer is by Belson, the Gold N Hot Stand Hair Dryer, Model#GH053. I used it for the first time on Thanksgiving, it was great!! Nice and warm and just a dream after being immobile for so long, LOL... Initially I wanted a Pibbs Qwik Dry, but right now 300-500 dollars is just not a smart move for me to make. I'd rather buy a nice hair steamer to condition with for that kind of money if I had to! I purchased the dryer from Sally's, it was on sale for $88 dollars. I like that it is black instead of the white Conair brand dryers they usually sell. It comes with a 2 year warranty and was very simple to put together. I will keep everyone posted on how it hold up!! Here is a link with all the specifications and a picture :)

I'll have a blog on my rollerset results next !! Thank you for reading everyone :)
