An Electric Elixir - Jade Jagger Kérastase

Posted by Jilly Mabbitt at 18:13

For the past five years years I have had long blonde hair, however towards the end of last year something strange came over me, and I decided to follow the trend and go for the “balayage/dip dye" look. I had the top half of my hair dyed brown, and the bottom half left blonde.

A good look, you would think. But no. It wasn’t good. For 3 months I looked like I had horrific roots growing out - as if I had a brown fringe slapped on top of a head of blonde hair.

So last week I finally made the decision to go back to blonde, and, to have all my lovely long hair chopped off. And, thanks to Kirsty from Electric Hair Salon, Brighton, who is Electric's Art Director and a  L'Oréal Colour Expert, my hair has been saved!

Before - "dip dye"
After - (looking a bit fresh with no make-up)
With this new hair, and after all this bleaching, a new hair routine is also needed. Kirsty advised me that, for my bleached blonde hair, I need to use products that will repair my hair from the inside. And so I came across this Limited Edition "Elixir Ultime" by Jade Jagger for Kérastase at (currently offering 15% off Kérastase products!).
Compared to the L'oreal Elvive elixir
Elixir Ultime by Jade Jagger for Kérastase

The elixir contains four different oils: Moroccan Argan, Pracaxi, Maize and Camellia. It can be used before shampooing, before blow drying or even afterwards (so on wet, damp or dry hair).

Having previously tried the L'Oreal Elvive "Extraordinary Oil" serum for coloured hair, which left my hair greasy and weighed down, I had my reservations about the Kérastase Elixir. However, much to my surprise, it was a completely different story.

My hair (pictured above) has been left feeling sleek and shiny, not at all weighed down, and feels like there has been no damage at all from bleaching. The trick, I find, is to apply a tiny, peanut sized amount to the palm of your hands, rub your hands together, and then smooth through the ends of your dried hair. Or to apply a small amount to wet hair before blow drying (also works as a great de-tangler!) The Elixir Ultime is my ultimate colour saviour! Thank you Kirsty, thank you Kérastase, and thank you Jade Jagger.

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
