Transforming myself into an ocean goddess starts under the water...obviously. Shampooing with the gentle, yet effective John Masters Organics Bare Shampoo imparts clean hair, striking just the right balance--not too squeaky, but not just as dirty as it was to begin with. It's also gentle enough for even the most sensitive of scalps. On an everyday basis, I focus the shampoo just near my roots, but once a week or so, I shampoo all the way through the lengths, then top off the tips with the Bumble and bumble Surf Cream Rinse Conditioner. The name says it all, and it does a fantastic job, as well. Perhaps the most stunning characteristic is that, despite its thin texture, it does wonders for hydrating the hair, as well as bringing back life and adding shine, but without weighing anything down.
The rest of the mermaid making happens out of tap. The Yarok Feed Your Roots Mousse* is the most versatile of products. Applying it to wet hair adds manageability to freshly washed locks, but adding it dry adds loads of volume at the roots and texture all over. Although the lasting power in the volume category isn't fantastic, the falling 'do maintains the natural aesthetic. To top things off, I spray the John Masters Organics Sea Mist into the ends or all over for grit and texture, which can easily be adapted from slightly tousled to lion frizz using scrunching motions, if you please. And the best part: the lavender scent.
People may think that I'm younger than I appear, wear no makeup (you've heard that before), and look tired (wow, thanks, a** hole). Hopefully they make the connection between my mer-parents and I.
