Think Pink: I love Boobies



The African Pride olive miracle growth oil and Denman D3 brush in pink were a part of the Susan G. Komen display.

Today, I headed over to my local Sally Beauty Supply to pick up some wax strips for my eyebrows, renew my Sally Beauty Club Card, and use my 15% off coupon. While shopping, I noticed a promotion for their partnership with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The products selected for display were in pink and others contained the Susan G. tag (as displayed above); to make buyers aware that their purchase would support an investment equal to 5% which SBH Inc. has committed to donate to Susan G. Komen.

Here is an excerpt from the ad of the selected hair products and tools on sale.





This was the free product I chose. 

Since its inception, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has invested more than 1.9 billion in its promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever. I haven't had anyone close to me affected by breast cancer, but while attending college I had an encounter with a classmate that changed my life forever. She was a Mother of three, going to school in search of better opportunities that a degree would offer. I remember in one of our classes having to give a presentation on ourselves, where she revealed she was battling breast cancer. She told us that she was refusing further medical care. She said she was tired of the chemotherapy and was going to simply let God do his will. What strong faith she exemplified! I wondered why wouldn't she just continue with the chemotherapy she needed so she could possibly be around for her kids. Who was I to question why she chose that path. I mean she didn't tell us every detail of what she was going through. There could have been a number of reasons as to why she didn't want to continue with treatment. She ended up dropping out of school after missing what seemed to be days at a time. My heart really felt for her and her family. Still to this day I wonder what became of her cancer. She was such a beautiful and kindhearted woman.

I'll support the cause not because I have a close relative or friend battling it, but because it is the most common cancer among women in the United States. It's the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.

  2. I don't go to Sally often, normally just to re-up on wax strips. I'm going to do a review on that mixed silk elements deep conditioner I got for free. Stay tuned for that. :)
