Curls 1: Vampires: 0

Friday, 19 August 2011 by Guest Blogger

In honor of my grandpa’s 80th birthday, the entire family (extended ‘n all that jazz) gathered in Rochester, NY, to properly celebrate my pop’s life.

With 7 hours to spare, my spunky 16-year-old cousin, Lisa, waltzed down the stairs with blond hair, covered in vampire blood. Semi -permanent vampire blood, that is.

Lisa and I!

Yes, Lisa and her band of high school gal pals all decided to be “different” and die their beautiful heads of hair into something that closely resembled that of a scene from the Twilight saga.

Well, one where Edward eats Bella for breakfast during Chapter 1, that is.

After 10 minutes of listening to my Aunt, (Lisa’s mom) interchangeably call her a freak and a vampire, I knew I had to step in, do some damage control and solve this hairy situation.

After washing her hair with some preeeeetty strong shampoo, (we even applied dish detergent to the red stripes directly) Lisa’s hair felt like genuine straw. Because I wouldn’t dare travel without my handy dandy Ouidad weapons, I quickly remembered I’d packed my Moisture Lock Leave In Conditioner.

So, there we were, the two of us sitting in the bathroom bonding over her vampire mishap and my clutch product realization. After applying the Leave-In, I styled her hair curly (using a mixture of the Leave-In and Tress Effects Styling Gel) to help hide the stripes of “blood.”

Not only did the Leave-In make her hair incredibly soft, but it also left her wavy curls controlled. This is EXACTLY why I never travel without this product, especially during the summer; it softens broken ends, smoothes the scars of chlorine, and even helps make (in this case) streaks of morbid vampire blood look a bit more, well, “lively.”

For those of you who’ve abused your hair with blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons, chlorine or even semi-permanaent red dye, Ouidad’s Moisture Lock Leave-In is just for you. It’s light weight texture leaves your hair feeling healthy, not oily, and your curls bouncy, not droopy.

*For best results: mix a little into your normal styling routine or apply directly to your ends while damp.

If Ouidad’s Leave-In could help turn Lisa’s bloody situation around, I think it could save you from your sorry dry woes.

Ouidad the Vampire Slayer Love,

J
