Is your Mum as good a sport as mine is – let me tell you a story and you’ll know what I mean!
When I was 18 I came over to the U.S. to go to college, and I obviously didn’t have my family around. As time grew closer to graduating, my Mum came over to stay with me for about a month – we took graduation pictures, hung out and had fun. During that time I didn’t have much money and I was living in a very small town that had few, if any, hair salons. I decided it would be a good idea to color my Mum’s hair for my graduation, to spice things up a little 😉 Let me preface this with the fact that I am in no way experienced and I had NEVER done anything with hair like this before (especially not on myself)!
We bought a color kit from the local supermarket, and I set to work coloring her hair. All was going well until I realized that I hadn’t tested an area to see how the color would take, and suffice it to say that by the time I was done my Mum’s hair wasn’t blonde but RED. Now all I can say is that she is much, much nicer than I am because she didn’t melt down, in fact her only response was “it’ll grow out.”
So when I called her this week and wanted to try a new product on her I was very surprised to hear that she was 100% OK with me doing it. It’s not because I have suddenly become a pro at hair styling, because I haven’t!
Thank goodness for AGEbeautiful Topcoat Toners which I just discovered…The thing is, just like my hair, my Mum’s pulls warm, brassy tones whenever she dyes it…and I noticed that there were some more brassy blonde tones in her hair and I wanted to “cool” them down for her.
I discovered this amazing new product at Sally Beauty and I have to admit I was cautious about using it on myself because I am not as patient as my mum is, and I’m pretty sure if it damaged my hair or it didn’t turn out right, I might have had a mini meltdown myself ;).
I am happy to report that these toners are the real deal. For those of you out there who have ever gone to a hair salon and come home feeling less than satisfied because your hair is too yellow, gold or brassy…this is the answer you have been waiting for.
It is really easy to use, it only takes up to 10 minutes, you can do it yourself and you can see the amazing results.
I know, it’s not exactly like me taking her to a spa, but how she felt when I was done was definitely worth it!
AGEbeautiful Topcoat Toners are anti-brass toners that neutralize unwanted warmth to keep blonde shades looking cool. They deposit rich color & shine on pre-lightened or highlighted blonde hair, and because they contain Vitamin E they moisturize your scalp rather than drying it out – We used the Pearl Blonde – for reference!
