Clore Beauty Recap + Sensationnel EMPIRE hair line

If you're following me on my social networks, you would have seen that a few weeks ago I was promoting an event with myself and a few other Toronto influencers.We were going to be at an in-store event for Clore Beauty Supply. To promote the launch of a Sensationnel EMPIRE hair line at their Customer Appreciation day. Clore Beauty Supply is a leading beauty supply company here in Canada (They even have a salon inside of two locations).

I got to meet amazing black Toronto influencers, interact with customers and learn from the awesome Sensationnel team & The Laws Agency who came down from USA to promote the hair. At the end of the day we got to choose whatever hair we wanted for our next install.

I can definitely understand why somebody would choose to go to a salon that is inside a beauty supply store! Everything is at your fingertips. When I go to a home salon and if we need something like an extra pack of braids…. it sucks. I would more than likely have to leave go to the store find the item and come back. Which adds time and inconvenient to the individual right after me.

Since I work my own flexible hours, I was able to get into the salon two days before Caribana. Very rare!!! Man, I was lucky to get a 1 o'clock appointment. Regarding the install, I can say that my stylist was very quick. Plus my braiding pattern was VERY neat. Also with it being Caribana weekend, I fortunately did not have any lines ahead of me or had to wait for my stylist. A win-win situation.

Now onto the hair: I got my install done August 2 and it is now the 14th. I've only had this hair in for 13 days so I fully cannot assess the full duration of the hair (usually a month install for me). If your hair is natural like mine, I would definitely recommend getting a closure or a full head weave for the straight hair. They did have four different types of closures on hand but I decided to forgo that. For me, I could say that was probably not a good idea because it's summer and I don't even need to tell you about leave out frizz I’m dealing with.

You could see the difference in texture (on a humid day like today) but again as I said if you're not willing to straighten your hair daily….. get a closure/full head install. Also let me report that there was been very minimal shedding. I might get a bit of tangles at the nape but that's a normal thing for me and lobs (long bobs). Especially since it's resting on my shoulders.

Me stressing out and my hair frizzing out *Real tears* Hahaha!

So that's my honest opinion of the Sensationnel EMPIRE Yaki hair. 
If you’re interested, Clore Beauty Supply has six store locations from
Scarborough to Ottawa to serve you!

Let me know what you think of me in a burgundy hair. 
I’m still unsure. I’m so use to all black.

Is it a look? 
Or should go back to ALL black?
