I‘ve dyed, fried, rinsed and repeated. 
From when it was cool to have permed hair to stick-straight hair (the old-fashioned way using an iron and an ironing board – this was before awesome hair straighteners were on the market) to thick, chunky blonde highlights and then ombré, I have done it all.
And all in the name of style!
Unfortunately, my wasn’t too pleased with all the experimentation and undergone some seriously heavy punches.

Most recently, I dyed my hair a gazillion shades lighter than it is (I have naturally black-dark brown hair so that makes it even more injurious), so even after dying my hair darker again, the texture has never gone back to the way it was pre-bleach.
Boy, do I regret doing that!
I had shiny long healthy locks before that and no matter how many times I trimmed the split ends or used leave-in conditioners, it was very tough to find products that really worked.

The Holidays is fast approaching which means tons of events and memorable photographs.
I was so happy to be introduced to a powerful reconstructing 3-pack system, Joico’s K-Pak Colour Therapy Sets including their Revitaluxe (heaven-sent!).

With the highest concentration of Bio-Advanced Peptide-Complex in its formulas, Joico’s K-PAK Color Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner delivers the ultimate in healthy hair. Revitaluxe, a post-wash luxury treatment, works to rebuild, reconstruct, strengthen and correct even the most severely damaged hair.
Joico has also unveiled the power of DNA science and the latest advancements in bio-mimicry to create Joico’s patent-pending Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex, the most powerful, targeted hair repair technology ever created.

To restore your hair for the fall and winter months, try these three products from the Joico K-PAK collection:

  • K-PAK Color Therapy Shampoo ($12.69, 300ml): Indulge with this gentle yet rich colour-preserving shampoo, which improves the hair’s elasticity and shine.
  • K-PAK Color Therapy Conditioner ($14.99, 300ml): Ideal for damaged and colour-treated hair, the K-PAK Color Therapy Conditioner hydrates and repairs hair making it stronger, shinier and feeling silkier
  • K-PAK Revitaluxe ($24.95, 150ml tube): This fortifying treatment repairs years of damage instantly by reconstructing the hair structure from the inside out. It offers dramatic cumulative benefits, by continuing to correct and protect strands with regular use.
I LOVE the K-PAK Revitaluxe! It’s the ultimate hair product must-have to help bring back those silky, healthy locks you dream of!

The full K-PAK line is available in fine salons and spas nationwide.

Another truly awesome brand that I have used in the past with success and loved, Schwarzkopf, has come out with their new Holiday 2013 BC Beauty Bags.
I love their line of products, and recently have been using their Repair Rescue set.
At first try, when applying the conditioner, I thought: this conditioner is so watery – how could it possibly coat and nourish my dry hair?
The results will speak for itself after continuous use. That’s the thing I noticed about Schwarzkopf conditioners. They feel more on the watery side as I’m more use to the thickness of conditioners but it really works!
Wrapped in a festive travel clutch, the five new BC Beauty Bags feature assortments of Schwarzkopf
Professional’s best-selling BC product lines to accommodate anyone on your holiday gift list. Options
include BC Color Save, Moisture Kick, Time Restore, Repair Rescue and Oil Miracle.
How pretty is that travel clutch? What’s great about it is that you can use it even after the holidays is over to carry your hair products with you when you travel in an elegant way.

Another fantastic thing about buying a Schwarzkopf BC Beauty Bag?

I love it when you invest in a product that gives back and goes far beyond!

  1. My biggest concern is dry damaged hair! I would love to get my soft and shiny hair back and I have heard so many good things about the schwarzkopf repair rescue line. I would love to win that and try it out so i can rave to my other friends about the product … andd the woman who introduced it to me 🙂

  2. SO crazy that you posted this! I change my hair color every few months. My hair is a dark black/black and I have to bleach as well. I’m always bleaching, then dying my hair crazy neon colors. Last time I dyed my hair was almost two months ago and it still hasn’t fully recovered from the bleach. I will definitely be checking these products out as they seem very worth it!
