Curly Hair Model

So last week I went to the Curly Hair Institute. They were doing a before and after and of course using their products. They told me not to put any product on my hair that day – so Jonathan could see the ‘real’ me! So…bottom line is that I live 4 hours away. Woke up and co-washed and just put a leave-in on. I figured that wasn’t really a product – right? So……….got on the train with this lovely halo of frizz covering my hair. I just knew everyone was looking at me! Arrived in TO with my sister meeting me (another curly girl but with no frizz). She just said WOW! I think that says it all!

We did arrive at the Salon….however because I wanted to make a point I had a bag with eyes cut out with make-up and lipstick. I put this over my ‘lovely’ hair and walked into the salon. First lady thought she was being robbed; when they took a look they all laughed. Jonathan came out and loved my idea.

They took me to a spot and had my make-up done (not really but they added more colour because it wouldn’t show up in the pictures). I would not have left my house without make-up!!! (don’t know why because no one would recognize me!) They then did all sorts of before pictures; Jonathan did my hair with his products (which I use) and told me stuff about my hair I didn’t know. He told me that my roots were thick and that by the ends of my hair things got thin. He asked me if anyone had thinned my hair lately………………..yup! Last time I went to my previous hairdresser last March (1 year ago) she took the thinning scissors to my hair! Good grief I knew then she shouldn’t do it but didn’t know then that it would haunt me forever.

Bottom line is that he made my hair much curlier than I get it. He also showed me how to get height at the back (which is normally flat). He suggested that I comb my hair from the back to the front (with product in) to fight the fact that the hair wants to lie down with water. Also showed me how to put clips into the top for height. They then took all sorts of after pictures………one of which showed me with the bag!

When I mentioned I was on Naturally Curly he told me how often he reads it, that he reads the threads and relates to them! That he really has a ton of respect for the originators – how nice they are and how they care about the site.

Okay now as soon as I get the pics I will post them…….I will stop talking now!

What fun!

That's cool that he knows the site and reads the threads. I wonder if he's reading this one right now? bwah ha ha hahahahahha
Sounds like a great day, glad it went so well. I think you're very brave going out without product, especially on the train, I can't imagine ever doing that, I'd feel naked! Looking forward to the pics.
Yay! Sounds so fun! I cant wait to see pictures. That's hilarious that you took the bag... LOL

I can get into the other albums, but not my most recent. I'll let you know when the problem is fixed.
Thanks for pointing that out.

LOL, I wonder if he read when I freaked out about his combing.

It looks beautiful Notty!
Your hair looks great! Thanks for posting about your experience.
Grace sets apart Christianity from all other religions.

No other religion offers God's love and redemption coming to us free of charge, as a gift, with no strings attached, no performance required, no standard to meet.

Only Christianity dares to make God's love unconditional.

You look gorgeous!
What a cool experience. Your hair turned out beautifully.

What products did he use on your hair?
Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
