Brush On! For Heavy Thick Hair!

So, unfortunately for me, my hairstylist Hillary J or Winam Studio got the flu and had to cancel my appt for root coverage.

I was going away on a trip, so time was of the essence. So I racked my brain for an idea for someone who had nice hair who wouldn’t mind giving a referral.

Turns out, it popped into my head that hair guru, Lincoln Whang of Boss Beauty Supply mentioned his website was  I went there once with the bf when he got his hair cut, and knew they were in Restaurant Row, moving from Manoa.

Sherry (sp) had time that day and took my white hair on.  I think she misheard me on whether I wanted to do Paul Mitchell’s PM Shine or try out their ammonia-free semi-permanent brand, Affinage. She went ahead with the PM.

She washed out the color with Neuma’s minty shampoo and conditioner for clarifying-it really feels refreshing, and blow dried my hair.

The cool thing was, she was using a brush that was a cross between a paddle, vent, and roll brush. Made out of plastic, without boar bristles. My hair in wet condition, is really heavy, and a pain in the *ss to dry.  I usually use my fingers and rake my hair dry.


She finished off with a round brush and woila! Just like I was 14 with all black hair!

I wanted one of her brushes, but took off for LA the next day.

While in Los Angels, I saw a beauty supply store, and it was pretty amazing. The shop had a focus on hair products, but also had Ahava and other beauty brands.

I was happy to find a very similar brush–I had a choice of the with and without boar bristles, so I chose without.

Very happy with the brush–it has a little bend so I flip my ends a bit-so I look more finished.

Definitely my favorite brush for 2014!
