Okay, so. I was searching for sales and such online, since the CAD is finally at par with the USD.
Go here from Oct 6-10; I wanted to see what Banana Republic had. And apparently, what they have is a temporarily closed site. So they’re giving 10%, I guess.
That’s all ^^
I was going to save this one for a while, but it’s relevant now, so here it is!
Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Serum is my Holy Grail hair product. It smells fantastic, doesn’t grease up my hair, makes it feel super-soft, and shines enough to blind you (well, maybe not, but you get the gist). It’s only con is that it’s slightly expensive, but it’s totally worth it – I bought a tiny little bottle, probably about as long as my palm. It was on sale for $6, and I put it in my hair whenever it’s looking less than perfect. I have short hair, so I just put in a drop or so. I’ve used a whole centimetre of it, over about two and a half months :P
So pretty much, what I’m trying to say is this: BUY IT!! Yes, the price is a little high, but it’s like treating yourself. And very much worth the price tag!
EDIT: I picked up a new full-sized bottle of this at the ABA hair show in ’08 for $15, and over a year later, I’ve literally only used an inch and a half – about to the bottom of “smoothing”. You really only do need a tiny bit!
I’ve been searching for the HG of shampoos and conditioners since I was twelve.
I haven’t found it yet.
But along the way, I’ve tried quite a few – today, you’re hearing about the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi shampoo and The Detangler conditioner.
As you can tell by the title, they weren’t worth the enormous price tag – my hair felt fantastic, and I could practically see my reflection in it, but my scalp got greasy within the day – right now, I’m using Joico. Life has been really, really busy, so I didn’t have time to shower yesterday, and my hair’s just barely beginning to get oily.
I guess these two would be great for someone with really dry hair, that wanted shine and softness. But if you have a normal or oily scalp, this really isn’t for you – no matter how great it makes your hair feel, the price tag (about $25/bottle) is way too high for normal people to be okay with the greasy-scalp-factor.
To quote M. Lavold: “Little grade eights are bags of freaking HORMONES.”
Well, we certainly aren’t in eight any more. But, for most people under the age of twenty-three (when full frontal lobe development usually is complete) hormones are very… prevalent, to say the least. Weather it’s love lives or foreheads, they get in the way!
So, let’s do a review on a holy grail product.
Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask. I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of this one, it’s pretty much revered. It doesn’t sell in Canada, though. But that’s quite all right, seeing as one bottle has lasted me pretty much forever.
It’s cheap, it smells okay-ish, and it works really, really well. It’s the only product I’ve found that actually helps with the massive blackheads (okay, so maybe they’re not massive, but they look massive to me!!) on my nose. The only thing I have to say is: Go find a bottle, and buy it. It’s pretty much the same price as a Starbucks, so work on having nice pores with the same money that would go right to your waistline ^^.
So I’m one of the unlucky few with a great nose. Why, you ask, is this a bad thing? Certain fragrances, as well as cigarettes and pot, make me feel like someone’s crushing my chest.
The kicker? Though I get the symptoms of an asthmatic, scent allergies aren’t recognized as allergies, because scientists can’t figure out what causes them. So I literally cannot do anything about it.
Which brings on the review of the day: Biolage shine spray. Very light, hairspray-ey smell, but after about ten minutes of wearing it, I had to go and rewash my head. It was traumatizing :P
Also, it didn’t make my hair very shiny. And was $22.
Thankfully, though, Chatters took it back…I think it may have been because the woman working the till was a ditz (sorry!). I didn’t have a receipt, or a reason, I just took it up and asked if I could return it. She was like, “Sure!!” and put it on a gift card.
…I’m lucky, in some ways, so I came out on top in this one. I only paid $18 for it ^^
