Pampering Made Simple With Madison Reed

Between the daily activities of blogging, running a business and chasing after a toddler I don't have much time for anything but sleep. So last Sunday after spending the previous days covering fall fashion trends with Simon Lookbook Live, I decided I would give myself a bit of pampering to get fall fresh. This was going to be the perfect opportunity to try out the Madison Reed salon-quality at home hair coloring kit. So with the help of Madison Reed, my tweezer, Vera Moore nail polish in lollipop, my AcneFree facial brush, razor, and my Glamour magazine I was ready to get my pamper on.

Madison Reed Professional Colorists in a box

Madison Reed has managed to revolutionize the DIY game and make color in a box feel like a glamorous experience by offering natural healthy and salon quality at-home hair coloring kits. They take all the guess work out of the process - all I had to do was answer a few questions through their online Color Advisor and was given a few recommended color choices. And if I wasn't sure, all I had to do was pick up the phone and chat with one of their color crew. But if I then decided the DIY method wasn't for me then I had the option of ordering a Madison Reed professional colorista to bring the salon to my doorstep.

When my beautifully and chicly packaged 8-piece ammonia, PPD, parabens and resorcinol free kit in Bolzano Brown (4NMG) arrived, it was clear they had thought of everything, down to the simple instructions and illustrations that even a 1st grader could follow. My girlfriend was so impressed she called it the "most impressive coloring kit" she had ever seen. To top it off the products are fortified with premium ingredients such as Argan Oil, Keratin, and Ginseng Root.

I prepared dinner then laid out all my required beauty products... removed the old chipped polish from my toes, repainted them, then applied my hair color and covered with the included protective cap to set. While I left the color in for the required 35 minutes I did some eyebrow grooming. And because I only had a few strays to remove I took the time to browse through the Glamour magazine I received in my swag bag the day before. About 30 minutes in I grabbed my facial brush applied some cleanser and gave myself a mini facial. After the color was all set I jumped in the shower rinsed out the color and washed with the Madison Reed nourishing color enhancing shampoo and conditioner, before shaving my legs and took a shower. I toweled dry and styled for my usual twist-out.
