Chelso Reviews

Hi Maryanne!

I always enjoy the posts where we review products or various things. I decided to do one. Because it could be a post with some actual point (which is rarity for me).

Hair Lightening Products. 

Lately I have been considering lightening my hair. My current color is to dark and my hair is too stressed and damage to handle lightening, so I’ve been using products that are supposedly easy on the hair. Now, I have color treated hair so it is not as effective but here are two solutions I tried.

John Frieda Hair Lightening Product 

I got it in the clearance section of Target. Now all of these products say not to use images.jpegon color treated hair, but I’m not trying to look blonde blonde as much as just lighter. My hair is jacked up so I wasn’t too concerned.  The product itself was effective. Since my hair is long it only lasted about 3-6 treatments. My hair did lighten and it didn’t seem to damage my hair anymore than it already is. However, the smell was really gross. It didn’t smell like chemicals or clean but like dirty mop water.

How It Works: After you wash your hair you spray it all over and style as usual. So the smell would kind of get baked in.

If it mixed it with other products you couldn’t smell it but it wasn’t my favorite. Eventually I got used to it and it maybe lightened my hair two shades.( I should change lightened to altered) Despite the smell I would do it again if it were on sale.

Apple Cider Vinegar: As part of my hair lightening adventure I decided to seek out a more “natural” approach to hair lightening after my stinky spray ran out. It was also supposed to double as a conditioner and shine treatment.

How It Works: You make sure your hair is wet and then you put one tablespoon of Vinegar with One cup of Water. You mix it in a spray bottle and spray liberally. It was unclear if I was supposed to use all of it, so I took the Maryanne approach and used all of it. It took a long time to spray on. I ended up putting more vinegar then they said. Then you are supposed to let it soak for 30 minutes and wash it out.

What Happened: I ended up combing it as I went along which may have made it not soak into my hair very much. it did function as a dentangler and made my hair soft. It was not a permanent soft, and did not actually condition my hair as much as make it ok for a little while. I’m going to try it again. It may have made my hair slightly lighter but I’m not convinced.  Here is a picture of apple cider vinegar in case you don’t know what it looks like for some reason. Symmetry is important to me. Or not because WordPress hates me. I’m leaving this bit in because its silly.

Ulta Salon

I shared with you how I felt about Ulta. I felt like I was too frumpy to be there. However, I ended up there because my hair was desperate for a deep condition, and I was too embarrassed to go to my hair dresser after playing science experiment with my hair. I also was not ready for a haircut and didn’t want to get yelled at by her. So I decided to go to Ulta because it was regionally close to me. The girl was actually really sweet, and she did a good job handling my hair and took her time. I got compliments on it all day, and if you go in the morning it is literally a ghost town. The prices were kind of high, but not really in comparison to what I am used to paying. For a style and deep conditioning treatment it was 48 dollars. It took her two hours, but she did a beautiful job. Would recommend.  None of my pictures are working. Kill me. So I will describe it vividly where the picture should be.

*There is a row of chairs in a white salon. Could literally be anywhere. I felt like I needed a picture. The chairs are black.

Ordering Clothes Off Amazon: 

I recently needed a dress for a concert I want to go to. I wanted a white one with sleeves to cover my arm chub. I hate cap sleeves and I didn’t want to shop so I thought I would try amazon. I found a darling dress for 30 bucks that fit perfectly. The reviews were trustworthy on sizing which was impressive because most clothing cites haven’t figured that one out. I did predict the dress to be more sheer than advertise so i bought a slip. It worked out great.

*here is a picture of the dress and amazon logo. My efforts are not being shown. It’s white, has a zipper and lace. It’s really cute and I am angry you can’t see it.

 

Well I think good things come in threes so I will stop there. (I know it’s technically four but whatever). It was not an exciting post but my life is not exciting. I hope you found this useful. It’s ok if you didn’t, I wont cry.

May you have a week filled with blessings, sprinkles, and gluten free shampoo.

Respectfully,

Chelzmow

2 Truths and a Chelso

Earlier this week, my fellow mow sent me this list of Truths to Answer. I apologize if they were not as in depth as you have hoped but I am super tired and have developed a bad habit for being deliberate. Thank you School. Although, admittedly, aereodynamically, astrological, alphabetically speaking, I am totally having a mild procrastination attack.

So I apologize that that was probably not the epicness that you expected but I will plan in something this week that allows for me to do something worth posting!  But because it makes you happy and gives my brain an outlet I will include some random pictures from the internet. (This is when I type the first thought in my head into google images)
