Who knew that my personal hair consultant would be the quiet 30 something year old man who stocks shelves and moves boxes in a local beauty supply shop in NYC. During previous visits to this bss (beauty supply store) he has asked me if I needed assistance and I would politely tell him "I'm fine thanks", until one day my frustration to find a great product left me overwhelmed. When he asked if I needed help, I rattled off a list of items that I wanted but I did not want any products with harmful hair ingredients. Perhaps the spoonful of knowledge that I spewed that day made him think I knew what I was talking about ( to some degree I think I do :-) ). It was then that he whispered " not this" as he quickly returned the product in my hand to the shelf. I was then ushered to another area of the store and it was then that the floodgates were opened. He told me about alcohol in hair products, sulfates, biotin, karite oil, and other must know information, needless to say I was impressed. He even directed me to products not sold in that store to really help my hair achieve true lusciousness.
He made some wonderful recommendations and now I'm hooked. I find myself moving quickly through the NYC streets trying to get to him before his break, with my hair products from another store in tow just to get his opinion. We move to an area out of view from his employers and we discuss my purchase. After reviewing my selection and examining my tresses, he tells me if I have made a good choice.
He doesn't know it yet but he has become my official hair care specialist.
Who gives you great hair advice?????
