Ah I loved Ricky Lakes role in the movie. Does this age me? Anyway I promised a review of Mountain Light hair dye. It is completely plant based. I am pleased with the results.
Again I chose the mahogany and medium brown. I have a ton of hair, plus some reviews suggested to mix and match so I did. The process calls for you to “cure” the product. Basically after you mix it with distilled boiling water it sits.

The instructions suggested adding one of several suggested spices for scent and depth of color. I chose nutmeg. So it has to cure for about an hour. Kind of a time extensive project but that’s ok.
After that it was time to apply. That took quite awhile as my hair is waaaay too long. If you ever have used henna, that’s basically what it smelled like. So not nearly as stinky as chemical hair dye but I wouldn’t say it smelled like roses;)🌹. That sat on about two hours. Packet says 45 minutes to about 4 hours.
It suggests waiting to shampoo at least a day. I waited a couple. Initially it just showed a darker color, after the wash it really warmed up the color with a nice reddish highlight. It covered most of my greys. I think I may have missed a spot. It was hard to cover such a large amount. Maybe next time I’ll bribe the hubby with a six pack.

Go check this out on Vitacost. 😉

It’s the Little Things

So I placed my first order on vitacost YESTERDAY and my order came today. As I mentioned before since my lyme treatment has begun I’m making a conscious effort to stay away from chemicals.
I had a hair stylist I LOVED in North Carolina. (Hannah at Seagrass Salon). I never found one here. I do desperately need a cut, which I’ll do eventually but I need a color asap. I tried a Pinterest DIY color that was coffee based. Dispite smelling a bit like a Starbucks Barista I liked it, it added a nice warmth but it did not cover the grey:( I guess 4 pregnancies in a little over 3 years will do that.
So I looked on vitacost while searching for a probiotic. I came across Light Mountain Natural. It’s all plant based. No chemicals, no animal ingredients or testing. I ordered the mahogany and medium brown. I’ll have a product review in the next few days! Wish me luck!!
