Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.
I know what you did today! You woke up after sleeping in until 9, someone gave you breakfast in bed, and then you went to the spa and got the full treatment head to toe! No!?!? Oh, well I guess we all are dealing with reality then because that is NOT how the typical day transpires. Usually we wake up, go to work, deal with a ton on the to do list, put dinner together and then if we are fortunate have a true minute to breath before bed. Guess what? This is understandable, there is so much to do every day! This grown up stuff is for the birds! Who signed us up for this?
Let’s cut to the chase, at some point we have to maintain ourselves….we look in the mirror and we, ::drumroll please::: look at our hair! The truth is we all want that shiny, delicious, vibrant look no matter what! There is something we all can do to achieve this whether we have a high maintenance color, natural color, gray, etc. We just have to plug it in to a regular beauty routine. So with no further delay here are your five tips to keep your hair vibrant and healthy:
1. Wash your hair with a professional clarifying shampoo, then follow with a professional deep conditioner.
2. Purchase a color depositing conditioner
If you have a high maintenance color or you just want to refresh your current look, color depositing conditioners simply coat your hair with the color of your choosing and make it look refreshed and pretty. They can be used often and do not permanently change your hair color, and can easily be plugged into your washing schedule. Come hither sassy locks!
3. Enjoy a demi permanent color at the salon
This step can be used on natural hair, is fabulous for gray hair, enhances blonde, and refreshes color. The process is short, so no long visits at the salon. It is a deposit only color that stays for about 6 weeks then washes out. You can also add a subtle hue to whatever you have going on currently and it leaves the hair with a glossy shine.
4. NO matter what, use cool water when washing your hair!
OH it is so comforting to take a hot shower! I know, even though I advise my clients to only use cool or lukewarm water when washing their hair, it’s so tempting to turn up the heat! This is a common thread I have seen with many women, myself included. One of my favorite quotes from a client “But I like my showers satanically HOT!” Even though this was hilarious, hot water used regularly on hair will dry it out! Use sparingly.
5. Get an olaplex #2 treatment at your next salon visit.
This product is absolutely amazing! My clients get it ever time they visit. It is a neutralizer, sealer, and conditioner. This super intense treatment is availabe at salons only but there are several maintenance products to buy and bring home in conjunction to this awesome service.
