Well you should try this new smoothing system by Chi, it's amazing! I took a class last week and I am now certified to preform the Chi ultimate blowout service in the salon.

Look at my before and after...



What is the Chi Blowout? 
From the manufacturer's website: 
CHI Enviro American Smoothing Treatment is a revolutionary safe treatment. It eliminates up to 95% of frizz while making curly hair more manageable. It instantly adds amazing shine, silkiness and condition to the hair. The results of this safe alternative to traditional harsh straightening systems are amazing. The system safely smoothes frizzy, curly hair into beautiful, soft and silky hair. When the powerful, yet gentle, formula is combined with heat from the CHI Iron and dryer the hair is bonded, providing incredible results.
This revolutionary smoothing system infuses the unique formula of amino acids, proteins, silk and pearl into the hair’s cuticle. This process dramatically improves the condition, shine and smoothness of even the most unruly hair types. Results typically lasts up to 4 months depending on hair type.
I'll be honest I was a bit skeptical when I went into the class,  it sounds too good to be true! But I must admit I was very pleased with the results and I am now a believer. All the girls in the salon now want it done on our own hair! Another great thing is that it can be done on most hair types. If you are going on vacation or a busy Mom that doesn't have a lot of time to spend on their hair and want your hair more manageable this is the perfect treatment for you.

A Goal and My Attempt to Recreate....

I've had a goal for awhile now but haven't done it for one reason or the other. My goal is to get inspiration from pinterest, youtube, google...etc. and try and recreate it. I think this goal is good for a couple of reasons.
1.It's always good to try new things
2. It's good to challenge ourselves and get out of our comfort zone.
3. It will get my creative juices flowing... (they have been a little rusty lately) and lets be honest no one wants a hairstylist that is stuck in a rut, and only does the same two haircuts or styles on everyone.
4. I will make mistakes... it's just bound to happen. As long as I learn from my mistakes they will be discoveries and opportunity to grow.
4. With practice I will become a better hairstylist and it will help me with my every day to day clients.


So with that being said I watched a youtube video today and took a stab at it.


The a few discoveries I learned from this are...
1. I really wish my doll head had blond hair!
2. Because she has brown hair I should have used black hair ties.
3. Because she has brown hair I wish I would have left it nice and smooth instead of adding the crimping in there. When I crimped the hair it just turned out looking like a rats nest instead of how it looks in the youtube movie.
4. I think I would like to add braids in somewhere if I did this again.

Ok so now it's your turn to challenge me... send me a picture or a clip of something you would like me to try and recreate and I will post it here on the blog... READY GO!!
