My Spring Look! :) – Jon Renau Julia and Sonia Kashuk Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss

New Hair and New Makeup! 🙂 The Sonia Kashuk Magic Mulberry Lipgloss completes the new look, don’t you think? OK so it’s not a completely spring look like what is dancing in my head, but it is a start. And I’m wearing my new hair – Jon Renau Julia.

Sorry for all the hair posts lately, but lots going on!

Hair Care Update for Jon Renau, how to have Silky Hair

These are my own experiences with haircare for synthetic hair and do not replace professional advice.

Jon Renau and too much product

So learning the dos and don’ts of my Jon Renau Zara hair continues as I adjust to having about 50 times more hair- don’t use so much product! (Number 1 was don’t use a boar’s or normal hair brush).

But Vee and Patti from Patti’s Pearls are amazing and I am going to update you early next week, probably around Tuesday or Wednesday, with what they are doing for me and how they are helping me fix this and help me know what to do going forward. Stay tuned for Monday Morning Makeup Inspiration tomorrow – Sunset look! 🙂

Jon Renau Zara II – using the proper tools is really important

My mistake with taking care of the Jon Renau Zara hair and how it got fixed. Jon Renau Take Two.

If you order one of these amazing products, ORDER THE PROPER TOOLS ALONG WITH THE ORDER RIGHT AWAY. Otherwise you’ll be needing something and you won’t have it and you will be tempted to substitute – bad idea as you’ll see below. 🙂

After lots of tears, I’m pretty happy with the outcome.

Stills from an upcoming video – I’m so happy with my hair

Only a fellow alopecia or cancer fighter could understand my happiness right now. Or a close friend.

I am compiling a fun video with a lot of different options for those wanting to see what you can really do with a custom hair piece like this.

Alopecia and Jon Renau, my new hair by pattiespearls

I have briefly mentioned before that I have alopecia. It has been a long battle with lots of expensive medications and lots of styling and cutting and worrying.

I need a break.

I am starting a new program right now but there’s no guarantee that it will work. If it does great.

But for now I need a break.

As anyone can tell you who’s dealt with it (and a lot of people completely lose all their hair in a very short amount of time), it’s painful. And it’s lonely. Nobody else seems to have the problem.

I never seriously entertained getting something “artificial.” Extensions maybe. They are all the rage right now. But my hair is too thin for extensions and they can damage your hair.

I talked to the sweetest lady, Patti (http://wigsbypattispearls.com), who is an expert on the whole subject. She customized this hair for me. It’s my color, but with highlights, since I always get them anyway. This is the Jon Renau Zara, video below.

Call their number on their website if you just need to talk or if you have questions. They’re amazing. Not like the big companies who you won’t feel comfortable sharing your personal story with. You’ll get Patti or one of the other 2 or 3 people who work there.
