Yes, I'm Junkie... Product Junkie that is

I guess I would consider myself a bit of a product junkie.  I didn't always used to be like this though.  I started small with a mid-price shampoo and conditioner and then worked my way into face wash.  My first time was with Bliss... then I found Murad and then... CLARINS.  Eventually the blush got me.  I suddenly needed NARS and then my lips started calling out.  Chanel, Mac, and then Fresh lip tint seemed to be the only way to go.  Gone were the days of simple chapstick.  No more Cover Girl, Maybelline, or Revlon.  Sephora had gotten the best of me. 

I'm also one of those people that rarely gets my hair cut.  Probably once or twice a year at best but everytime I do go, I manage to get suckered into buying a... product... or two.  Last time it was Aveda but I have a new salon now and they are...wait for it... KERASTASE.  I mean, nothing is better than Kerastase.  Your hair feels like smooth like a baby's butt and is shiny like a new penny.  I really didn't want to do it but I did.  I managed to stay away from the shampoos and conditioners but walked out with


Kerastase Serum Nutri-Sculpt.  This stuff if incredible.  You just need a few drops and suddenly you have silky, soft luxurious hair, free of fly-aways.  I had an encounter with this stuff back in high school but I definitely couldn't afford it... not that I can now but I've learned how to better convince myself.

The last thing I bought is probably my favorite.  You see, I have thick, heavy, Asian hair that really does nothing.  It's easy but it has no volume and because my hair is so dark, any product leaves me looking like I have dandruff (yes, eww).  Alterna came to the rescue.  Not only does this product give me the life I've been looking for but it makes my hair feel and smell amazing.  Even my husband noticed!!
