Welcome to my newest Hair Journey

If you've followed this page or managed to run into me at a show, you know I'm a nut for for Flexis.  I'm also wild, daring, and dangerous when it comes to hair. When I was in my 20s, I would dye, highlight, and perm my hair at the same time.  In my 30s, I've been known to dye my hair pink.

You know how they say that your hair ages?  It's true!  My hair can't take all the chemicals I threw in it when I was younger.  And now I'm suffering.  Last Fall, I bleached my hair, and dyed it pink.  I did a bunch of shows, which meant pulling my hair up in a french twist and letting it down up to twenty times a day.  I literally DESTROYED my hair.

"Destroyed?" you say?  "Oh, she just means it's a bit dry and needs moisture."

No, destroyed ladies.  As in my hair went from shoulder-length, to bob, to pixie cut, to now a bit shorter than a pixie... and then working on getting my hair shafts reconstructed.

So welcome to my newest hair journey.

Samantha Klosterman and Rosa Shull at Kissmett Spa and Makeup Boutique ( ( )  are the lovely ladies who are helping me in this new journey.  They will be helping me stop the damage, repair the damage, and make my hair healthier and more beautiful than it's been in years!

Kissmett is in Lovettsville, Virginia, and is a beautiful, make you feel beautiful spa.  Rosa has been with Kissmett for seven years.  After one visit with her, I think she's a miracle worker.  She has fine hair, like me, and knows the struggles a fine-haired girl faces.  She was able to show me tricks that really a grown woman should already know, but apparently I'm a dunce when it comes to haircare tricks. :)   Rosa can answer any questions you have, and was even nice enough to write down the instructions for me so I can't screw it up the minute I got home. :)

Samantha is co-owner of Kissmett and makes sure after Rosa makes your hair beautiful, your nails and face match!  I especially love that Samantha actually makes CUSTOM make-up.  If you have oily, dry, or sensitive skin, she can custom make something that will help your face, not hurt it, and in the color you want!

After that, you can go visit Kimberly who can give you the spa experience you love.  Massages, Reflexology Waxing, and they also do Essential Oil Re-alignments!  I'm already thinking of an excuse to do Reflexology!

Today was the day where we looked at the damage, made a plan, and Rosa got all that bad hair off.  I'm not sure how she did it...but she cut hair off....but I look like I have more hair than I did when I came in the door!

She's also getting me started with the perfect shampoo, conditioner, recontructing treatment and oil to start making my hair the beauty we want it to be.

Rosa told me it may take 6 months to get my hair back to the length it used to be, and she promised me that together I could make my hair pink again if I wanted. *yay*  I just need to be closely supervised from now on. ;)

I just noticed that I never got a pic of Rosa and me.  That will be corrected.  I'm already trying to figure out how to go ghost hunting at her house. ;)

Sooo.... the befores.  We didn't get too close when taking the pic but you can tell it wasn't healthy.

And the after.  See...I told you it looks like I have MORE hair!!!

I can't wait to start playing with all my new products, and post pictures!  Warning.... Rosa warned me I may be mullet-bound before I get my pretty, long hair back.  Business in the front.........
