I'm going to admit it.  I'm not a hair person.  I don't know what I'm doing with my hair.  Don't get me wrong, I love my hair.  I love the color, the length, and the volume.  But, I don't know how to style it.  Hopefully, that all changed today with a visit to my new salon.  

I loved the salon and my stylist, Diana.

I don't have a before picture to show you, but you can look at my vlog from yesterday and clearly see my roots.  Here's the after picture.

The first thing we talked about today was how to repair all the damage that's been done to my hair.  That's right, friends, I had damaged hair.  I have some heat damage, color damage, and shampoo (that's what I'm calling it) damage.  I've been using Pantene products.  (Someone please tell me that I'm not the last person on earth to find out that Pantene causes wax buildup!)  You can better believe I'm going to take back the Pantene Smoothing Creme I purchased at Target last night (more on last night's shopping trip later!).

I didn't want to change much about my hair and I wanted to keep it low maintenance.  I just don't have the patience to spend much longer than about 15 minutes on my hair in the morning and that includes drying it.  I also work out during the day sometimes and always run, so I don't like having a ton of layers to deal with.  She did my color, a protein treatment for my ends, and cut and styled my hair.  

I left with happy hair and some new products:

My stylist says this cuts your drying time in half.  I'm for anything that shortens my getting ready time!  It also smells great.

What are your favorite products?

Your hair looks gorgeous! Love the new do - and your color is beautiful. I'm so jealous of your golden locks, if I didn't look so ridiculous with really light hair I'd have mine the same color! :)

Your hair looks amazing!! I just started using an organic shampoo. Hopefully I get good results! I have an unrelated question: how do I figure out what running shoe I need? Go to a running store? I currently have Nikes that I like but I'd like to get something better now that I'm a more serious runner. Any tips would be great! Thanks :)
