The Angel game I went to with the bf last weekend :).
I just want to say I’m sorry, I haven’t had much of a chance to blog. I have quite a bit of homework for my Anthro class and last week was spent running around picking things up for the bridal makeup trial I did (!!). The trial went beautifully and my stylist, Jessica, said I was hired :D. Here’s a quick picture of the lovely bride to be. I should have slowed down and taken better pics, but I was too excited lol. When I got home and uploaded the pics, they all showed up too dark. BUT, I will take good shots on the big day to post; or I might have to steal some of her professional ones :P.
She asked for a purple smokey eye :). I know many brides opt for a neutral look, but Jessica is such a bright, beautiful person– browns just wouldn’t have felt right. Can’t wait till you guys see the dress, its dramatic details beg for a more dramatic makeup look. Anyway, we took our time to get the look just right and I’m looking forward to recreating it in November when she gets married. I had an absolute blast working with you, Jeca! Thank you for asking me to be a part of your big day :).
Jessica traded my services for a hair cut and surprised me with a bottle of this amazing, life changing, ground shaking product as a tip. The last time she cut my hair, she used It’s a 10 Plus Keratin and I could not get over how shiny and healthy my tresses felt after. When I went into Ulta to check out pricing, I decided to wait, given the $20 price tag for a 4 oz. bottle. Last Friday, before we started working on her makeup, she came out of her room holding an enormous 10 oz bottle of the stuff and I had to restrain myself from doing an embarrassing happy dance LOL. Here’s the product description from the site:
I’ve been using this product daily for about a week now and my hair looks AND feels healthier. When I get out of the shower, I spritz It’s a 10 a couple of times throughout my hair and then comb it through while I detangle. If I leave the product in my hair for an hour, my hair feels incredibly soft and silky. If I dry my hair right after applying, it’s still soft and it styles really easily (while controlling my baby hairs). My split ends look so much better and my 2nd day hair isn’t out of control; I can skip a day of washing without it feeling yucky.
Yesterday morning, I tried to shake the bottle to feel how much I had used and there wasn’t a swishing liquid sound. When I helt it up to the light, I saw that it was a thick cream. This was surprising to me because the spray never felt heavy and has not weighed my hair down at all.
It’s a 10 doesn’t really have much of a scent that I can detect, so it doesn’t conflict with any of my perfumes, something I can really appreciate.
Now, to talk about pricing. The 4 oz. bottle is about $20 and the 10 oz. bottle is about $40 at normal retailers. Because Jessica is a hair stylist, she’s able to get it at a much better price, but not everyone has awesome stylist that will pick bottles up for them (lol). I asked Jeca to bring me a couple when we meet for her wedding, but I’ll be on my own after that because she lives up north. Would I still pick this up at full retail? Yes, in a heart beat. Because I haven’t seen my hair look this healthy since before I started dyeing it, I would be willing to cut other little luxuries once every few months to be able to afford this.
I give It’s a 10 Plus Keratin an A+, 5/5 stars, a thumbs up…you get the idea. Miracle product, indeed!
Have you tried the It’s a 10 line? If not, what’s your favorite product to keep your tresses healthy and happy?
