This blog blossomed in 2010 to chronicle my adventures in pole dance after weight loss surgery. I initially talked too much about weight loss and bad diet "science." Join me on my enlightenment journey. The size of my body doesn't dictate my worth. I believe living a life full of gratitude and joy helps lead to a true mind, body and spirit connection. Yoga and pole dance are still my favorite methods of movement. Choose to be the type of person who lifts others up rather than tearing them down.
I learned quickly when I first went red five or six years ago that red washes out of your hair FAST. For a long time I rocked a "black cherry" wine red. I used Tressa Watercolors shampoo to help keep the red in a little longer. Sure, it looked like I murdered someone in my shower, but the red didn't fade as quickly (and it washes down so it never stained my shower or hands). I tried to go blonde again and it just never worked with my pale skin tone, so I went back to red almost two years ago. I started having my stylist add more and more purple -- first because I like purple and second because I had hoped it wouldn't fade as quickly as red. While it does still fade a bit, I went looking for Tressa Watercolors again to see if they had something to help. They do have a violet shampoo (which is technically to help keep blonde hair bright), but I find it helps keep my purple hair from fading as quickly too. They also have a clear conditioner. It is all sulfate-free, which is better for our hair anyway!
