Auburn Hair to Black Hair

Hello my gorgeous beauty addicts! I recently decided that I need to stop dying my hair a bright auburn almost red. Mainly because it's a pain to keep up with, I started getting gray hairs (is this normal for a 18 yrs old?), and my ends were super damaged.

So I got about 4 inches cut from my hair and dyed it black with a blue undertone to it. I don't really like how it looks. I like it a lot better auburn. What do you all think?

I think I'm just going to let it grow out and stop dying it. My hair used to be super wavy before I started dying it and using hot tools on it. Anyways, enjoy!

Influenster Review: Veet Was Strips

Hey everyone! I've got one last product review from my Influenster Latina VoxBox. Enjoy!

* I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster
* Veet Website

Product Info:
-This summer, keep your skin smooth for longer with VEET® Ready-to-Use Wax Strips for Legs & Body. The strips are specially formulated to remove hair on legs, underarms and bikini area from closer to the root than shaving for smoothness that lasts up to 4 weeks.

My thoughts:
-I have thick hair to begin with so I already knew these weren't going to work well on me
-I personally think this is for girls who have thinner/finer hair.
-Didn't work on my legs, pits, or anywhere else
-The only place it actually worked was my chin and oh boy that was painful and I was left w/ irritated bumps. Shame on me for not reading the warning (do not use on your face lol)
-I didn't like that there was wax residue left over and the wipes it comes with did not help remove the wax.
-The only thing I actually really liked was that they are super easy to use.

Overall, like I said , this would work better on thinner hair. But maybe I just think that because I've never really been a fan of waxing.

Where to buy & Price:
- You can find VEET Ready to Use Wax Strips at Walgreens, Target, CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart!
- Suggest retail price of the Wax Strips:  $9.99
