Oklahoma is not known as a hub for fashion. In fact, anything we saw on tv or in magazines, we knew wouldn’t come close to being in our area for a good 9mo to a year from then. So, we got to live vicariously through the magazines, showing what was popular on the coasts. The magazines always made the Fashion Week runway shows so glamorous. I had always said, “Someday, missy, you’re going to go see a show.” Well, I haven’t made it to one yet, but Redken
is giving me (and you) a chance to make that happen.
Redken is holding their second Fashion Insider contest, where one lucky winner will have a chance to become Redken’s “Backstage Blogger” at New York’s Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Week! Redken is offering one lucky person the chance to go behind the scenes and share on BellaSugar.com their backstage experience at NY Fashion Week – just visit Fashion Insider 09 to enter between now and June 15th. Now, there is a small essay involved, but don’t worry – give it a shot and see if you can be more creative than me.
We all know that I am not the most able bodied person to manage their hair. Seriously, I get by, and some days, not very well. I am always so jeally of the lovelies that can just let their hair air dry and go about their business looking good. My hair has always decided that it wants to look like the driest, most flyaway hair raised in the desert. Of course, I live in the humid Midwest, so, that’s not it’s problem. It just wants to defy me and try to make me spend more time on it than I want to, like an ex just trying to get my attention because he’s lonely or something.
Ahem..anyway…well, after all this time – I can finally be the boss of it thanks to AG Split End Spa Repair Serum (which is being released to the public this month). This is a super lightweight serum that contains “AG’s exclusive CARE (Colour and Radiance Enhancing) complex which includes a blend of herbal extracts, meadowfoam seed oil, sunflower seed extract and incroquat UV, to eliminate colour-destroying free radicals and work to preserve the vivacity of hair’s colour.” This is super important to me since I do color my hair Auburn, which is kind of difficult to keep glowy and bright. I use this on my towel dried hair, and even tho it says to “dispense a small amount”, I tend to do more than that for my shoulder length hair. Then I just hang around and let the air do it’s thing. My hair dries silky and rests on my shoulders instead of reaching for the sky. It also helps keep it smooth when I dry with my round brush and hairdryer, and I put a touch of it on the ends to set it. That keeps it from flying away during the day, too.
I should also mention that I use this with the Colour Savour Shampoo and Colour Savour Conditioner, which also contains the CARE complex and is sulfate free. But, let me tell you, coming from this lather loving lovely, it may be sulfate free, but it gets enough lather that I can get a Ferris Bueller mohawk if I am feeling it. You’ll need to get this at a salon, so check out the salon locator to see where you can get it near you.
So, lovelies……guess who just became Total Beauty’s
only “blogs they love” that starts with the letter “O”? I’ll give you a few moments….. *(hums “girl from ipanema”). Okay, give up? It’s ME!!!
That’s right, I am now an official member of Total Beauty’s community of great beauty blogs. I am so excited that I get to be among so many of my favorite daily reads. I just wanted to take a sec and let you guys in on my excitement, too.
