I’ve been spending a lot of time talking about hair in the southern hemisphere. I’m going to bring it up past the equator for a minute and talk about the hair in the northern hemisphere. For you directionally challenged beauties out there, it’s the hair on your head!
My hair and I have a love/hate relationship. I was born with extremely curly hair. One particularly humid April day in 10th grade history class, a you boy we’ll call T. turned around and said “Hey Frizzy Poodle!”
I went home and begged my mom to let me get my hair straightened. She said no. Two years later, I went off to college. My first weekend in Boston was spent at the salon getting my hair chemically straightened and retired the nickname Frizzy Poodle for good.
Beauty definitely comes with a price-my hair is extremely damaged: I chemically straighten, I blow dry, sometimes I flat iron, and I am an avid swimmer.
Chemicals + heat+ more chemicals=dry, damaged hair. Ojon is my hair’s BFF. I use this mask once a week. I usually leave it in for about an hour and clean my apartment while the mask does its work. My hair is soft, shiny. Since I started using this mask, I noticed that I don’t get as many split ends of flyaways. Ojon gets an A+ in my book!
I am also addicted to Alterna shampoo and conditioner. They’re pricey, but so worth it. Alterna’s claim to fame is their Enzymetherapy – The Science of Skincare, African Cacao, Hyaluronic Acid, Caviar Age-Control Complex™, Photozyme Complex™ with Color Hold™, Italian White Truffle, French Champagne Quality Grape Seed Oil, Bulgarian Evening Primrose, Moroccan Quillaia Bark, Arnica Flower.
The trifecta of Ojon and Alterna Ten Shampoo and Conditioner keeps my locks looking like a hairdo’ instead of a hairdon’t. They’re a bit of an investment, but I no longer need a trim every 6 weeks. I go once ever 4 months now because my hair is so much healthier. I’m hooked for life! Goodbye, Poodle. Hello, beautiful!
