Mielle Organics Mint Almond Oil

Oct 21, 2014 - This oil was just okay in my opinion. I wasn't a huge fan of the smell and noticed that even with a light hand, the oil tended to just sit on my hair. I seriously had to use a DAB of the oil sparingly on my scalp to get decent results (a non-dry scalp, reduced frizz and shine on my hair). It can be rolling the dice to figure out a way for a product to work for your hair texture and routine. This is one I would not purchase in the future because it didn't seamlessly meld into my routine, but I could see it working for others. The price is a tad bit expensive, but you do get a nice amount of oil. You could probably mix your own oils and get more personalized results. I didn't think this oil was worth the price.

Mielle Organics Babassu oil and Mint Deep Conditioning Protein/Moisture Replenisher

Oct 21, 2014 - I'll be transparent and say that I didn't want to like this conditioner. The packaging was terrible, with a basic... almost generic plastic container with the worst label I've seen on a professional product to date. It seriously looks like someone printed the label out at home and slapped it on there. The image that's on the page is accurate in design, but the actual product I received featured a label that was much more shrunken. The downside with that (aside from presentation and personal preference) were directions that were nearly impossible to read. With that aside I must say that I LOVED the way the product actually worked. The smell left something to be desired, but the core of the product is superb. I followed the instructions and applied the product after shampooing my hair. Almost instantly my hair became moisturized and defined. Detangling my hair is never that difficult, but I rarely see my curls POP and become spring-like with a conditioner. I left the conditioner on for about 15-20 mins and was in awe of how my hair responded. This was a moisturizing dream. Pros: Insanely moisturizing, superb curl definition Cons: Packaging was cheap, smell was bearable, but not ideal ** the level of moisturizing this product offered did outweigh the cons of packaging and smell in my opinion, but for the price I think the company should invest in a better quality, more consistent label... along with rethinking the scent. **

Carols Daughter Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage and Anti-Frizz Smoothing Serum

Sep 14, 2014 - This was another "okay" product that I tried out. The directions said to use 1-2 pumps on towel dried hair, but I found it more effective to use this oil as a refresher of sorts on fully dried, older hair. I have fine hair, so too much product could weigh down my hair... so, I stuck to using 1-2 drops for my entire head... not for each section. This is a nice product to use and will probably last forever. A little goes a long way and only using 1-2 pumps for your entire head makes it last a long time.

Vasuda Salon - Seattle, Washington, United States
Stylist:

Jul 21, 2014 -

** originally reviewed in Feb. 2014 **

I was on the hunt for a salon in Seattle that specialized in both curly hair and offered the Brazilian Blowout treatment. Vasuda was a match made in heaven. After a quick consultation, I scheduled an appointment with Erica Carraway (Level 2 Stylist) to perform my BBO treatment. I've received the treatment for years in both Chicago and Scottsdale, AZ so this wasn't anything new. Erica did a great job and I enjoyed beautiful results for about 3 months.

I recently ventured back into the salon for a wash/trim. Erica was booked solid, so I made an appt with Linda (another level 2 stylist). Linda was new to the salon (came from Aveda) and gave me the best scalp massage of my life when she was washing my hair. The trim was pretty straightforward.... I was only getting rid of splits, not getting a style, so I can't speak to her skills in that regard.

Everyone at the salon is friendly and it's a pleasant atmosphere.

The only con that I have is that I received a follow-up call from the male receptionist (jr stylist?) 2 weeks later saying that it had been "a while" since my last appt, and they wanted to see if they could schedule something for me. This was a friendly thing to do, but it had only been 2 weeks so I was more annoyed than anything. I think he possibly called me on accident. Who knows... but either way, I don't really need (or want) a follow-up call 2 weeks later. But putting this all in perspective, if this is my biggest complaint, it's really not THAT bad lol.

I've blogged about both experiences here: sixtwentysevenblog.com/s…

Flo Hair Studio - Columbia, South Carolina, United States
Stylist:
Chris McPherson

Feb 20, 2011 - 2 weeks ago I finally made my way into the Flo Hair Studio for an appointment with salon owner Chris McPherson. I was looking for a salon that didn't necessarily cater to natural hair, but a stylist that was well-versed in how to style curly hair. After a consultation which was originally intended to find out more information on the DevanChan Curly Girl Cut, we decided that trimming my hair the traditional dry/straight way was a better option for me. Since I don't wear my hair curly 100% of the time McPherson didn't recommend getting the cut done on my hair at this time. Flo Hair Studio is a minimalist meets modern salon in the heart of Columbia's downtown corridor. They have a more natural approach opting to bypass chemical services like relaxers, perms and brazilian blowouts. The only chemicals they use are for color so if you're looking for anything else you want to look elsewhere. However, if you're on the hunt for a stylist that will take the time to learn your hair texture and treat your strands to his delicate touch, McPherson is the person for you! It's always hectic trying to find a new stylist... especially for me because I was obsessed with Kim Allison @ Apricot Lounge in Scottsdale (I'll be heading back to her chair once I move lol), but McPherson was awesome to work with. He takes his time going through your hair and has a gentle touch. Many women shy away from salon trims because stylists can be scissor happy, but McPherson analyzed my ends with a fine tooth comb and took off 6 months of splits and knots. If you're a woman with curly hair I would especially recommend him because he understands curls, but don't fret - - he can work his magic on any head of hair. Feel free to give his salon a call and set up a consultation. Speak with him about what results you're looking to get and see if he's a good fit for you!
