My Blogs allow me to rant and rave about movies, scrapbooking, motherhood, saving money, and whatever else I'd like. I'm finding it to be a great release for me. I hope that others enjoy it as well.

Shear Genius Goes Green
Yes, I watch Bravo's Shear Genius. It's definitely not something I ever thought I would like, but much like cooking and fashion shows, I was won over. Why? I do not know. I don't get my hair done a lot and I'm not into trends, nor am I a big cook. I'm not very girlie really.

The experiences I have had in salons haven't been good. A few years back I had a horrible salon experience at Beauty Warehouse on Barry Road in Kansas City, MO, not Kansas. This was before I had a blog to complain, but the experience stayed with me and I intend to take full advantage of my blog now.

Whatever you do, do not go to Beauty Warehouse. I went for a body perm because my hair is ridiculously straight and I can't do anything with it the way it is. Finally, I decided I would try this even though I don't like putting chemicals on my hair, which may be a contributing reason why I can't do much with it. I thought this might give it enough body that I wouldn't have to do much but that it would be better than just lying there.

After 2 hours, I leave with my hair damp and it looks wavy enough; but by the time I got home, it was completely flat again. Still, I thought let's see what it does the next day...still nothing. So, I end up going back and saying that it didn't take and asking what we could do. Without any provocation, the manager jumps down my throat and starts yelling at me, saying that because I didn't use their shampoo, they wouldn't guarantee it. I say to her, first, stop yelling at me; second, no one told me I had to use their shampoo and third, that's ridiculous. Even the stylist thought the manager was rude.

Anyway, after much debate, she tells me my only choice was to come back the next day and re-do it, but that I had to buy their shampoo. I refused because the last thing I needed was straight, damaged hair. So, I went on and have come to terms with my hair the way it is, but I just wanted to warn any of you out there who might have a Beauty Warehouse near you.

That aside, this week, on Shear Genius, they did a "green" challenge, where they had to use organic products in their clients hair. I thought it was great. Mind you, I probably won't be attempting any of those things myself, but I don't use environmentally harmful products either, so no worries. Catch the re-runs if you can. It was interesting to say the least.
