I finally made my trip home, to the big apple. It was the best/worst trip I ever had.
The best, because there’s nothing like walking into a beauty supply store in the city and knowing that you’re going to find your list of products. You also know that if the first shop doesn’t have what you’re looking for, then the next one will.
The worst part of the trip was knowing when to stop putting products on the counter!
I kept grabbing stuff off of shelves, as if there was a prediction of famine.
Ok, so here’s a sad thing that I learned. My number 1 shampoo has been changed and the new formula STINKS!. I love the smell and fragrance of countless shampoos, but I always keep a bottle of Creme of Nature Detangling Shampoo on hand. Unfortunately, someone decided that we, the consumers, don’t know what we like, so they decided that they were going to change a good thing.
Why do I mention this? Well, because I ended up buying a gallon, yes a gallon, of my shampoo. I don’t know how long it’s going to last, but it should buy me some time until I find another tried-and-true shampoo.
Anyway, I ended up buying and trying a BUNCH OF STUFF while back in NYC (damn, miss it already) and I’m going to try to update and review everything.
I stopped my #1 Beauty Supply Store, Ra-Ma on the upper west side and hit 2 or three on the east side too.
Ok, so what did I buy?
1. Wheat Germ Vegetable Protein (Germen de Trigo)
2. Whale Sperm (yes, I wrote s-p-e-r-m) I have heard a lot about this, can’t wait to try.
3. Baba de Caracol Intensive Deep Treatment
4. UNA by Rolland Mosturizing Masque
5. Turbo 4000 Blower (will be adding review on this one really soon).
6. Got more stuff, but still have to dig it out of my car.
7. Oh, and let’s not forget the Gallon of Creme of Nature Detangling Shampoo, right?
On a different note, I am thinking about putting a semi-permanent color in my hair. I find that Jazzing stained my clothes a lot and Sebastian is no longer available. Anyone have any recommendations?
I’m also going to keep layers. I have never been a fan of layers in my hair, but recently (since I had it cut for surgery in January) I find that I love layers. They cut down on drying time and my hair doesn’t puff as badly.
Anyway, I’m going to have to get cracking on the blow dryer review. You all stay tuned
