My Hair Adventures with Joico!

My poor hair!! I Normally don’t go doing too many strange things to my hair cause I have learnt over the years that its best to be as natural as possible cause otherwise i end up with badly damaged hair.

Firstly i must start with how i ended up at a salon.. It was my Birthday and my Beautiful best friend Sandy surprised me with a visit for the weekend! Me and Sandy have been talking for months about doing something totally different and crazy with our hair, she has always been a stunning blonde and wanted to so something wild and go red with the hair but she didn’t have the guts to do it until she rocked up here and decided to book an appointment on my birthday and then of course I tagged along and also just had to do my hair as well cause me and her are bad when it comes to doing things together (we even have matching little owl tattoos). I decided to go light golden brown with my hair so that I could at least see a difference for a change, now lets just say it didn’t come out the way i was hoping and i ended up with uneven color that was a light glowing orange ginger color of serious irritation on the top root area and my mid length was still my usual brown just a tad lighter and then the ends were another shade of light brown(I probably make it sound worse than it was but hell i was just hating it! ) . By Thursday I was crying on the couch begging my husband to just bring home a cheapy box of color so i can cover it! Now thank the lord i decided against that idea haha

I struggled to properly take a picture that could show just how bad the color difference is but here it is .

Hair Disasters and how to fix

Friday Morning I took the advice of Joico South Africa and booked an emergency hair appointment at a stunning salon that they recommended. Hair Studio in George , I arrived there at 1:30 Friday afternoon and Got a Lovely stylist named Inga! After a good laugh about the state my poor hair was in she managed to relax me and we decided on going back to a luscious dark brown with some highlights and purple streaks to give it some definition and funk! Hair studio used Joico products so the actual color that they used on my hair was the Joico Vero k-pak color and its actually designed to reconstruct and be good for your hair! So that you don’t have to stress about it causing hair damage and you can totally just have fun coloring,  I needed this cause I was so upset that i could feel the damage caused by the previous weeks attempt at changing my hair color :(

I Spent 3 hours at Hair Studio in George, I had so much fun, the staff are friendly and relaxed me and made me such lekker coffee hehe :)  My stylist made very sure that my hair was coming out perfectly!! The result at the end is just amazing! I am once again in love with my hair. The color is shiny, bright and vibrant and the highlights are a beautiful crisp blonde color! My favorite is the pretty redish purple streaks that have totally made me feel fun and happy again! The condition of my hair after the Joico color is Better that when i walked in the salon , even tho i can still feel the damage from the previous weeks mess up , I know that if I continue using my trusty Joico K-pak range Conditioner and treatments at home then a few weeks from now my hair will be Awesome again and looking even better than before I decided to do strange things with it lol

    So happy you managed to have your hair fixed, it looks beautiful now, that other salon is now on both of our “stay away” lists, your experience there was much worse than mine but it had both of us in tears. I think I should give Hair Studio a try next time I have my hair done!
