Katehrm777 here, I have a friend who went had a therapist in high school. No real reason, just her parents thought it would be helpful to talk about the issues that face teenage girls today. I never really understood but looking back, this was perhaps the most brilliant strategy of beauty self-preservation of all time. I, however, was not so lucky. Bad day? Lets go indoor tanning obsessively for 3 weeks straight! The sun makes you happy! And nothing looks better than a great tan! Bad grade on a test? Obviously attempting to bleach my eyebrows to “match” my hair will cure such anguish. Fight with the parents? I bet shaving my upper lip would actually work in reality and would cause my make-up to go on SO much smoother! And of course, everyone’s favorite, a break up with a boyfriend. My high school boyfriend and I broke up a lot (who didn’t?). There was a lot of hair dying to emerge a new sexy goddess and make him realize what he was missing etc etc that went on in high school. My hair has been red, orange, grey, green, black, white, burgundy, maroon, and yellow due to emotional instability. Really, I think having a therapist instead would have ended up saving me money. Moral of the story: my hair was EXTREMELY damaged. Like won’t grow longer because any new growth just snaps right off. Redken Extreme Anti-Snap completely turned my hair around. I have been using it for two years now and have stopped dying my hair (hmmmm around the same time I got with my new boyfriend…probably unrelated) and my hair has stopped snapping, has started growing and continues to get healthier and shinier. Now this product is not an instant-fix, but with time and dedicated use can really improve the health of your hair. This is especially helpful to those who are trying to grow out their hair, as it keeps your hair from splitting and reduces the amount of dead ends that have to be cut off at your hairdressers. And it smells FABULOUS. Here’s what Redken has to say about their product:
“Anti-Snap leave-in treatment fortifies the damaged areas of hair and helps reduce breakage. Redken’s exclusive Interbond Conditioning System delivers a unique 3D Repair Complex of proteins, ceramide and lipids to help provide internal strength, cuticle reinforcement and protective resurfacing.”
So…any other teenage survivors relying on Redken to cure their split end woes?
