I finally did it! Last night I got my hair professionally highlighted and pressed!! The first time I’ve let anyone in my hair in 3 years! Needless to say I was extremely nervous. I entrusted my tresses to a young lady by the name of Toya Rucker and let me just say, she did an extraordinary job!
She started with a shampoo followed by a slight blowout and some time under the dryer. Next she applied a product by Redkin called Chromatic using the foil highlight method. It’s actually a clear formula that lifted the natural color of my hair 3 shades lighter. It was very cool!
Afterwards she washed and deep conditioned my hair. Following that she applied a color called Golden Apricot by Redkin to all of my hair and I spent about 20 minutes under the dryer. She washed and then it was on to to the blowout and press!
Before she started she applied a product called It’s a 10 Silk Express Miracle Silk Leave-in. You guys I have never felt my natural hair so straight and light! I was in awe! After the initial amazement came the unfortunate part…the trim. My hair needed a trim fairly bad and although she was delicate I pretty much threw my growth challenge out the window. On the upside my hair is healthier!
So…all in all I am over the moon with the results! Here are some pics of the details.
