    I will be following right behind you. The DC Institute is right down the street from where I work and get all my AVEDA products. I've been so much that the ladies sound an alarm when they see me walking in! :lol::look:

    ETA: You have to make the appointment way ahead because they are very busy. I would go ahead and give them a call: (202) 824-1690 - 713 7th St Nw right away and see how long the wait is.

    Yeah, girl. You know it. I have all the products that they used on your hair. I love the Emollient and like the tip about using the Emollient with the Light Elements. I think I'mma try that to see how it work. My guess is that's what gave you the shine. The other DR treatment has been mentioned before and I think you can purchase that on eBay. I'll just stick to the regular treatment with the conditioner and shampoo!

    Congratulations again!

    SP ;)

    I most certainly will. The prices are great and the rep I spoke to was very nice and professional. Here is a link to the site for the salon I'm going to, do these prices closely resemble the institute you went to? http://www.rizzierischools.com/cms/content/view/113/35

    I just saw that there are two aveda institutes less than an hour away from me. I can't wait to go.

    The prices are similar. However, at the institute the Shampoo/Blowdry/ was one price of $11.00.

    It's located on 3402 Piedmont Rd... not far from Copelands, on opposite side of street.

    Divine your hair looks very lovely and bouncy. They did a great job.

    Thank you so much!

    It's on Piedmont Road right off of Lenox Road. If you were going 400S you would go through the toll then get off on Lenox Road exit, make a left on Piedmont and the Aveda Institute is right there on the right.

    Coming from 85 get off on the Lenox exit and take Lenox all the way down cross over 400 make a left on Piedmont.

    Divinefavor, your hair looks great...but I'm not surprised :).

    I get the moisture/strengthening DR treatments mixed and my hair absolutely loves them.

    Hey, Divine ...

    Your hair looks great as usual!! Looks like it has so much movement. I may have to give the Institute a try.

    Girl your hairs looks sooooo goooood! She did an EXCELLENT job!! After she leaves, if you go again and have another stylist PLEEEZ post pics again. I don't plan on getting my hair pressed until late December, and I'll probably go to Too Groovy cuz I really liked my last experience there.

    But it would be great to have someone at the AI as a backup plan. I had been wanting to make an appointment there but I didn't know anyone who had been. Glad you enjoyed it! Your hair looks GORGEOUS! :)
