Ok Moms and other ladies with the tween/teen set in your house, I would like to take a moment and talk about the "tipping" or the trend with the girls either bleaching the bottom of the hair blonde, or a vibrant color. I get it, hair for decades has been a means of self expression, last year the feathers were everywhere, this year it is the tipping. When I was a teenager, it was Sun-In, Lemon Juice and a day at the beach, (not to mention the baby oil with iodine).
So when my daughter, who is turning 15 and graduated JR. High, with National Junior Honor Society, The Presidents Excellece award... you get the idea, she worked hard, as did her friends, approached me to get the Khole Kardashian look I thought at first no way are you dyeing your hair. Then I called the hair dresser to get a price (without my daughter's knowledge), and was told for the "Ombre Bleach" it would be approx. $100, well ding ding game over.
I began to re-think my position, after all it was only the ends of her hair, that hair will probally get cut off in the fall with the back to school hair cut. Also, I get it, she wants to have the look that she sees and likes.
Ok, now I'm on board, now we just have that pesky $100 thing to deal with. Well I go to CVS using a coupon of course and buy an over the counter color kit. We bring it home apply it oh so carefully, and for 25 min, I keep looking at my daughters beatuiful hair half covered in goo wondering if I have ruined her hair. So as soon as the timer goes off I get her hair washed and she drys it comes downstairs, and nothing. The color maybe lifted it one shade. (Did I mention my daughter is a brunette). Now I have a dejected daughter. So I head down to the local Sally Hansens and ask what I can use, and was told straight up bleach. That is the only thing that will lift a brunette to any shade of blonde. So i get a packet of powder and a small bottle of develper, (the clerk gave all this to me), I check out and off I go.
I get home now I am mixing bleach, without any handy kit (I did save the gloves from the first kit), and I apply the bleach. We wait, she washes and drys her hair and violoa she has blonde tips on the bottom.
But she comments on the texture of her hair, how it feels rough. She does have fine straightesh hair. I realize that it's the damage from the bleach. It isn't fatal but it will need to be cared for with the right products until she decides to cut it out.
Now this is where the BzzAgent program became a life saver, as I was given the John Frieda Frizz Ease for free along with samples to hand out, in return to review the product and share my experiences with my friends etc.
So I try the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution on her hair and suddenly her hair becomes soft and managable. The hair just drank in the product and said thank you. It was actually remarkable to see how well it worked in just one application.
Now my duahgter has a look she loves, had to take one extra step with her hair and apply the Frizz-Ease, but she has a fun summer look and didn't have to sacrice and beautiful head of soft hair to have it.
