Taking care of my hair with Charlie Miller

A few weeks ago, I decided to get my hair cut and dyed with the goal of feeling better about wearing it down. Pre-Charlie Miller, I had been wearing my hair up 90 % of the time. Even after taking the time to straighten or curl it all, I just wasn't happy with how it sat and out would come the bobble. It felt dull and flat with no shape or shine whatsoever and so, with the help of Nicola from Charlie Miller, I decided to do something with it.

I met with Nicola for a consultation and patch test the week before my appointment where she helped me to pick out a colour and some highlight tones to put through it too. She heard exactly what I was looking for and explained how she was going to achieve it. The plan was to go for a richer, slightly darker brown colour, putting in some highlights to frame my face as well as keep in a few pieces of my natural colour to help the highlights blend in.

After meeting Nicola, I was really looking forward to my appointment. Everyone in the South St Andrews Street salon was really friendly and the environment was so calm, it didn't feel like my hair was being rushed so that they could get the next customer in. The overall experience was just so relaxing, I was completely comfortable sitting there with a G&T in hand chatting away to Nicola, it was such a nice way to spend my afternoon.

Having not had my hair dyed before, I was a bit worried about the damage it might cause and how my hair would feel afterwards. But Nicola was very reassuring and explained how L'Oréal's new Smartbond treatment that she used provides really good protection during the dying process. The treatment has been developed to strengthen hair fibre and create a stronger bond between the hair and dye. Basically, it makes your hair stronger, softer and shinier after it has been dyed and that's exactly how my hair feels.

I don't want to be dramatic because I know that I didn't go blonde or anything, but even this little change has made such a difference. In the 2 weeks since I have had it done, I have been wearing my hair down almost every day and the few times I have worn it up, it has looked so much nicer than it did before and it feels much healthier.
