Back to school: Mommy beauty update 1

After a few back to school posts for the kids, I thought I will share with you some Back to School / Back to Work for us mommy! September is the beginning of a new season, and I always look forward to a wardrobe and beauty routine update! For us leaving in Dubai, it does not feel like autumn is on it's way yet but somehow I like to follow on the fall trends and update my hair color to darker and warmer hues.

After years of a combination of home hair coloring kit and pricey salon coloring visit, I feel like I find a great compromise for my hair: Kelly Van Gogh Masterblend Luxuary hair color system. This is a luxury home coloring kit with salon results!

I loved how shiny and soft my hair got. My hair looks darker than I was expecting, but I really like the color, I choose 4G - light golden brown. It is a deeper and richer version of my natural hair color. The color is more multi-dimensional than the other at-home hair color kits I've tried. The over all condition of my hair seems to have improved as well, like after a deep conditioning treatment. No over processed feeling!

It was not too difficult to apply but it's important to really shake the product very well for an easy application and for long hair like mine I would suggest two packs. Also, be prepared to wait 45min for the color to develop. It's gentle on your hair so it needs more time for the active ingredients to do their magic! It's like taking your hair to the spa. This luxury kit is infused with caviar oil repairing system, keratin and amino proteins to repair and boost the quality of the hair.

I would recommend you have a look at www.kellyvangogh.com, for coloring tips and this video for easy "how to" application.

 Kelly Van Gogh Master Blend Multi-Dimentional Luxuary hair color kit (long name!) is available at Bloomingdales, Jet Set Emirates Towers & Grosvenor House, Make Up Etc in Palm Strip Mall, Milk & Honey and online at glambox.me and namshi.com. Retail price is AED145. The price difference from supermarket bought color kit is to me justify with the quality of this luxury treatment and the result on my hair. Lets see how it fades in the next month… but I have good feeling! Keep you posted!
