A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

Winter Hair

on November 16, 2013

As I mentioned in my last blog, I sometimes have technology challenges… especially between ye olde iPhone and my Surface. I don’t think they play well to start with and photos make the relationship even more challenging.

This past week, I got a text from my stylist Kim, who I have known for over 15 years. She sometimes knows me better than I know myself. And she most certainly knows my hair better than I do. Kim has a sixth sense when a client has nasty roots – I like to tell her that it’s because we’re in a long-term relationship. So she always knows when I look bad without even looking… For the last couple seasons, I’ve been going with a lighter brown shade with some golden highlights:


I love fall for the changing colors and decided to return to the red that I love. Here’s the before (gross) and after:

Reds always fade quickly, so in addition to my usual dry shampoo routine, I’ll make the switch from my usual go-to color protect shampoo to the John Frieda Red Enhancing shampoo and Goldwell Red Protect conditioner. While I never share my color blends (okay, once), I will divulge that my stylist regularly uses Goldwell dyes.

Product update

As a follow up to my Birchbox post, I gave the La Fresh polish remover wipes a chance. I was wearing Color Club Status Update (which I LOVE) and had about 3 coats plus a topcoat. It took both sample packets to remove the polish, however it spread the color all over my hands and into my cuticles.  See the before and after:


OVERALL: this product gets a B. It had no odor and was very mild. It took the polish off easily, but got smeary at the end. I will probably stick to my regular $1.99 polish remover.
