Beauty Review: Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil

I’ve had a bit of a beauty fiasco this week.  In an attempt to do a dramatic ombre effect to my hair, I basically went blonde instead.  (Oops!  This is exactly why I refused to experiment with my hair before the wedding!)  This is the only blonde-haired photo I’m willing to show…

Needless to say, I’ve dyed over the blonde and gone back to my brunette roots (pun intended).  But there’s still a whoooole lot of bleach under all that brown hair.

Fortunately, a good friend (who bleaches her hair a gorgeous blonde, unlike mine) recommended Kendi Oil to keep my newly-damaged locks looking healthy as ever.  And let me tell you… this stuff rocks!

It’s made from bamboo, so not only does it keep your hair soft, silky, and strong, but it’s made from a renewable resource!  I just run a few drops through my hair after a shower and either blow it dry or let it air dry.  By the look and feel of my hair, you would never know that it had all been bleached!

If you’re suffering from an over-processed mane, I’d pick up a bottle of Kendi Oil a.s.a.p.

Have you used Kendi Oil before?  Got another hair treatment you swear by?  Any of you struggling with super-damaged hair?  Share in the comments!

    I am currently growing out the world’s worst perm. The product that has helped me the most is John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease hair serum — the thermal protection formula in the yellow bottle. (The extra strength formula in the purple bottle is too thick.) Where can I find some of your miraculous Kendi oil? Would they have it at a Walgreen’s, say? Or a beauty supply store? Or should I try the local beauty salons?

    So sorry to read about your coloring mishap… Laina dyed her hair black for a role in Guys and Dolls in HS, then dyed and redyed and finally bleached it back to blonde after the musical was over… needless to say she ended up cutting it all off and had short hair for quite a while… and I know you had your own hair troubles in middle school to deal with! I sincerely hope such drastic measures are not called for this time.
