✨Tips fore maintaining vivid hair colors✨
Are you the wearer of vivid hair colors and struggle keeping the colors in long enough? Here’s some tips and tricks from a licensed hairstylist to help you out! 1• COLD WATER. There. I said it. Warm water makes your hair strand expand and with vivid colors just sitting on top of the hair strand, this can cause immediate fading and bleeding. 2• BUY THE EXPENSIVE SHAMPOO. ITS WORTH IT. If you are willing to spend $300> on getting you hair colored you need to spend the extra $60-$80 on shampoo and conditioner. I don’t care what you say. You NEED it. My favorite is Amika’s Color Lock line! These are sulfate free so they won’t strip any color out and they will be gentle on the hair but still sudsy. Amika also has a fadeblocker that you can use before you shampoo so you won’t have a problem with fading. 3• Do not, I repeat, DO NOT WASH YOUR HAIR DAILY. Dont wash every other day even. If you can go without washing for a week do it! If you feel that your hair is greasy, just try it out for a month. Washing daily will strip all your oils which cause your scalp to produce more oils to make up for all the ones you stripped out and it will cause you to be greasy I’m a matter of hours. SUFFER THROUGH IT HUNNY IT’LL CHANGE YOUR LIFE I SWEAR. It takes about a month to get your natural pH back and your scalp will feel better than ever! 4• Your colors WILL fade. Eventually that is! And depending on what brand of color was used it could fade into something weird! Blue tends to turn green as it fades. Purple tends to turn green or pink- it really depends on what brand was used. Green is SO hard to get out of your hair so please don’t just throw on some SPLAT and call it good😂 it won’t come out I swear! 5• Chlorine removes haircolor. Be so careful getting into chlorine with your luscious locs! It will fade so fast you’ll cry! Either try to cover your hair in conditioner before you get in or just try to stay away from it in general. It’ll save you a lot of money! Products I’d recommend: amika: - Vault Color-Lock Shampoo amika: - Vault Color-Lock Conditioner amika: - Fadeblock Pre-shampoo Color Seal OLAPLEX - No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme

BYE BYE HAIR STATIC!!! best products + tips 💖✨
As the seasons change, the weather gets drier and static will inevitably start to frizz up our hair. It’s the most frustrating thing to get rid of when you’re out and about but have hair flying around. Here are my tips for preventing static-y hair. What you need to know about static is that it’s created when your hair is constantly rubbing against itself or against something else, like a top you’re wearing. 1) Keep your hair hydrated and moisturized. I love using oils like OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil or KRISTIN ESS - Weightless Shine Working Serum because they’re perfect to apply before and after heat styling. They’re both able to protect your hair from heat and smooth flyaways. It also keeps your ends sealed, smooth and shiny. (I’m using the Olaplex No.7 Bonding Oil in the picture above). 2) Use a styling cream in your hair to add some texture and hold in your hair. More texture and hold means theres less of a chance your hair will rub against itself or against other things and create static. My favorites are OLAPLEX - No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme and HAIRSTORY - HAIRSTORY Hair Balm . Both extremely similar in texture- just a thick cream- that warms up in your hands nicely and distributes wet on wet and dry hair. It adds a little bit of texture and shine, and can also help hairstyles last longer! Let me know if you’ve tried these products for preventing hair static and what you think!

Star Players of OLAPLEX 🌟 Shiny & Damage Free
I’ve been bleaching my hair in various ways since middle school, and over the years it’s racked up damage. Dry, brittle, lackluster, and easily tangled. However, after discovering these key products from Olaplex as well as some curly hair techniques like dirty deep conditioning (my fav with step three, i leave it on dry hair for an hour minimum) and product application methods, I’m happy to say my hair is strong, soft, shiny and manageable. With water soluble silicones, these products work for most hair types and routines, unless it’s truly a no-silicone routine. Though silicones are often thought to weigh hair down (a compromise for shine and anti-frizz), these products leave my curls or blowout weightless and wash out easily with my sulfate free shampoo. Being gluten free and containing more “clean” ingredients, there’s nothing in here that triggers my eczema or dermatitis. Though they contain fragrance, I don’t find it to be overpowering and I don’t mind it in my hair care. OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector makes my hair soft and manageable on its own, and after just two uses I noticed a difference in brittleness being lessened along with tangles— which is crazy for me with years of bleach damage and trying almost everything on the market! When you layer it with OLAPLEX - No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme frizz is drastically cut, and I love the extra shine it gives. Tip— mix it with OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil for extra shine and bounce, along with heat and UV Protection and frizz réduction.

Get Smooth and Voluminous Natural Curls
A good diffuser has leveled up my curly girl game. I got the drybar - Buttercup Blow Dryer on sale during Christmas. While it’s the nicest hair dryer i’ve owned and it works well, it’s extremely heavy and my arms get so tired diffusing on low/no heat. Because it takes me about an hour to diffuse my hair (I have a lot), something that is equally professional and lightweight is very important to me. I prefer a mix of hover and pixie diffusing, and the drybar - The Bouncer Diffuser works well for both of these. I love the wide mouth, it fits all my curls in very easily. However, a star has also been knocked off for the weight of the product as is makes the end of the blow drier even heavier. I start upside down after plopping, hovering all over my head in sections, taking extra time on the more porous areas that take longer to dry. After it’s about 30% dry, I switch to pixie diffusing, side to side and right side up until almost dry. Do this carefully so as not to encourage frizz!Flip upside down and fluff roots, and done! I finish with OLAPLEX - No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme to tame any fly-aways and add shine. No cons to this product, it smells heavenly and works great— not heavy or greasy. Overall, these two products are durable and professional I will gladly continue to use them. However, I wish I would have gotten the travel size rather than full size blowdryer to make it easier and not so much of an arm workout diffusing my curls.
