Recently one of my good friends decided to dye her hair from a healthy dark brown to blond. I tried to discourage her from doing it but nothing could change her mind. She was adamant about wanting a change for the summer. Not that I have anything against blond hair. Oh contraire! I think blond hair can be quite beautiful, but I also know that bleaching your hair can do some serious irreparable damage to your locks (and her hair was just soooooooooo pretty). Anyway, the day she colored her tresses, I went to pick her up from the salon. When I walked in, I found her in tears, and rightfully so. Her hair looked as if someone had thrown an electric device in her bath water. It was frizzy, full of cowlicks, incredibly dry looking, and just damaged-not good! Plus, because they had done such major work on her hair, it had a serious amount of breakage, so they had to cut almost 4 inches off-she was mortified. Not being one to say, “I told you so,” I took her home and tried to make her feel better, but to no avail. Before I left her, I recommended these two conditioners:
Aubrey GPB conditioner,
GPB stands for Glycogen Protein Balancing. This conditioner is packed full of protein to strengthen your locks. It's a very thick and creamy consistency, so sometimes you'll need to use your triceps to shake it out of the bottle, but i love it. The smell is so fresh and clean, and the best thing about this product is it's 100% natural.
The next one I recommended for after treating your hair with the GPB was
Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner
I really believe its important to always use a moisturizing conditioner after using such a potent protein treatment on your hair. This product leaves your hair so soft and moisturized and sooooo shiny. One of my best friend's daughter has type4a hair, and she swears by the moisturizing abilities of this conditioner as well. I also adore the smell of this-it's pure honeysuckle, yum!!! And again this product is 100% natural. Anyway, yesterday i went to meet my girlfriend at the gym. I hadn’t seen her since the bad dye job, and was shocked when she walked in looking as if she had stepped out of the pages of a Pantene Ad. Her once fried locks now resembled golden strands of silk. The shine was almost blinding. Her hair looked beautiful. Guess what she'd used...
