Mermaid Monday With Design Me Hair

IMG_1417.JPG

Oh my shell! Another mermaid Monday is upon us, and I’ve been saving this one for you babes till I had a chance to fully try and experiment with these fin-tastic products from DesignMe Hair. It’s one thing to try new hair goodies for a day to a week vs. a month, and I’ve now also figured out a totally easy routine that works as well.

So let’s dive in (hehe)

Fab Me Serum

I’ve been using this serum in-between days when my hair needs a bit of a pick me up. It’s great for when you step out of the water for a little refresh and smoothing and it does SO much to repair.

Something wonderful that’s part of all the Design Me products is that ALL their products help with volume, yes all of them.

What’s that saying? The bigger the hair the closer to god. Yeah that pretty much sums up how I feel!

OK, next is actually my absolute fave from the entire collection ( and I’ve gotten my BFF hooked on this one too)

The Puff Me Spray

As someone who uses dry shampoo powders religiously, I have reached for this lil’ guy more than any other piece from the collection. The bottle is tiny, but lasts forever.  It fits great in pretty much ANY bag and takes up little to no space on your counter space. With just a simple spritz the powder is dispensed deep into your roots, mess free and invisible! And like magic, Poof your hair rises.

I even use it in between the bottom layers of my hair to get through all those little guys for a bit of texture.

LOVE this one, literally my blowdry go to. It has such great grip and really helps lift and tilt the root of your mane to the heat. It never makes your hair look bland or static, and it’s never caused a snag.

If you’re looking for big, voluminous, cartoon worthy locks the Design Me Hair products are mermaid approved without breaking the bank. I’ve gotten my friends hooked and now I wanted to share the news with you too.

Arctic Mermaid Hair Transformation!

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll probably know that I’ve had a variety of blue-green shades for over 8 years now.

It’s been my “go-to” hairstyle for as long as I can remember. My most recent shade being a pastel mint, which was diluted from a deep emerald green.

it’s been a long magical journey… But last week I decided to metamorphose into an icy mermaid!

Here’s a special look into my day at Good Day Hair Shop

So first of all the salon is SUPER cute, they are located in the heart of downtown Toronto tucked away in Kensington market. They make their own hair products (that are heavenly) and know exactly what’s on with trends and colours.

Little did I know there are SO many different shades of grey/white and tints, so I decided to let my colourist, Christopher help me choose the right shade.

We started by lifting the entire mint colour from my hair with a lower volume of bleach so as not to damage my poor hair.

Then once my hair was super blonde, we added in some toner + bleach bath to ensure all the colour was out. We then re-added some custom coloured mint to give the subtle halo look. The whole process took about 4 hours.

Christopher was very careful when shampooing my hair and adding the toner, making sure that my hair wouldn’t fry off. We used the Good day hair shop silver fox shampoo and it made my hair feel super soft with the lingering sweet smell of vanilla candy.

The end result: A super cool toned silver with a mint halo

I used Good Hair Day Shop‘s exclusive Mermaid Sea Salt Spray to finalize the beachy- wavy look and give my tresses that much needed mer-curl.

You can buy their spray in store and it smells absolutely fintastic! It also doubles up as a hair spray. Perfect for those summer festival looks !

For silver hair maintenance, they also carry a purple shampoo + conditioner combo.

I would highly recommend the products + the salon and my magical hair colourist Christopher for anyone looking to change up their hair, they do an excellent job and made this mermaid super happy!
