Sexy Silk

My March break has been hectic to say the least. I’ve spent almost everyday of my break either at school, working or both (I did manage to squeeze a date in my busy schedule but I’ll post that outfit sometime within the next week).

Something I don’t always love to do is my hair. It takes so much time to wave it, curl it, straighten it etc. This past summer I heard some women raving about this line in the store I work at and decided to try it. While it is expensive I fell in love with this product. Using one pump and putting it through towel dry hair my hair was not only silky smooth but soft and brought out my natural waves in the best way possible. Plus it lasts me months (I restocked only two months ago).

Last month I figured it was time to try the repair mask with all the damage I put on my hair styling and dying it. Once again I’m hooked. These products smell amazing and can easily be worked into my morning routine. With the mask I only use it once or twice a week (on the days I wash my hair) for about ten minutes.

They are expensive but sometimes it’s nice to do something that makes you feel good about yourself, and I know when my hair looks good, I’ve got confidence to spare.

It’s the time of the season

For ginger locks. It seems celebrities are all coming over to the warm spicy side of hair colouring. Emma Stone switched from her natural hair colour of blonde, which she had while filming The Amazing Spiderman, back to ginger. Michelle Williams opted for a new warmer hue of strawberry blonde, and even Snooki has been rocking some red locks.

I have a very strong bond with red hues in my hair. As a pasty white girl with green eyes and freckles it just suits me. You know you’ve picked the right colour when people ask you if it’s natural. As a girl I think those are my favourite comments, “Your hair colour is gorgeous, is it natural? No? Could have fooled me.”

This year I am definitely going to try and maintain a light bright ginger tone like Mrs. Amy Pond (Karren Gillian). My hair is quite gingery, but of course for me it isn’t enough. I recently bought some extensions because my hair likes staying shoulder length and hair dressers refuse to let it just grow (not getting a haircut in non negotiable for me) and dyed them a shade very similar to this, and since my hair is fading they don’t match.

While I’m excited to have such a vibrant colour that matches my heritage, I think I’m more excited of the possibilities that come with longer hair. Buns, side ponytails, fishtail braids, heck any braid will do (they are my latest obsession). Here are some of the pictures that inspired me to take the leap and purchase someone else’s hair.
