My jobs are probably my largest source of stress in my life... but I put up with them because sometimes? they're awesome. I get to meet all kinds of awesome people with the radio station, plus some client perks (like the laser hair removal). And since I work in the prestige department of a makeup store, I get a lot of free makeup. Always good. I have 3 mascaras right now. Did not buy a single one.
Yesterday our salon manager (Oh yeah, we have a salon, too) asked me if I'd do a Keratin treatment. I have pretty wavy/curly hair. I usually straighten it with a flat iron, which isn't good for it but I don't care. Rarely do I wear it curly. What the Keratin treatment does is that it smooths everything out basically? It's a pure protein treatment (Keratin is the protein that is in our hair already) at least from what I understand. I'm not a stylist by any means. But I do know that it's safe for your hair... and that it is not by any means a chemical straigtener. I wouldn't do that to my hair. But since we only just started doing Keratin treatments, they have to do a few services on employees free of charge. So I'm getting a $300 service for free! I'm super excited.
The only weird part? For three days following the treatment... I cannot get my hair wet, I cannot put it back or clip it up, and I cannot even put it behind my ear. And I have to use a special shampoo: PureOlogy. But I'm going to have amazing straight hair for SIX MONTHS! I'm so excited... I can't wait until next Wednesday to have it done. I already have the day off from the station, so I figured that's the perfect time to get the treatment!
