I still had a balance on a gift certificate that DH bought me, so I made an appointmet to get a clear gloss and trim.

Got there and found out that they don't do clear glosses. How about a deep conditioning instead? Ok, I agreed to that.

My hair is like straw today! She used Pureology Hydrate Condition and I was under the hood for 15 minutes. And, to make it worse, she talked me into buying a bottle of the stuff! (I couldn't tell yet how bad the hair was.)

Expensive lesson learned - my hair does not like lots of protein!!!

On the positive side, after talking to a member at another board about this board (she's a member here also), I found a recommended stylist/salon in my hometown and will make an appointment to see her at Christmas!
