A week ago I went to get my hair touched up and if you’ve been following me for a while, you understand that since I have a darker red color, my hair will look brunette whenever I take photographs indoors. Some of my followers were asking me if I had let go of my red locks and went back to my natural hair color. NEVER.
After taking pictures and snaps with my hair in sunlight, it was obvious that my red locks were still on and looking better than ever now that I have an updated hair care routine! This blog is going to be dedicated to telling you all about a new product I have been using that has really worked wonders for my hair and it is currently on sale at Ulta right now until June 2nd!
Here are some basic things about my hair care routine that have made a very big difference for the overall health of my hair:
- Cutting an inch off when I go to the salon as opposed to just a trim.
- Wearing caps and sunhats outside. The sun will definitely fade red hair.
- Using a heat protection spray before curling or straightening
- Combing my hair BEFORE I shower.
- Putting conditioner at the ends of my hair first and then shampooing my scalp.
I’m not going to lie, I rarely wear my hair natural. If you want an idea of what my hair naturally looks like, just look at this picture of Eddie Vedder
Anyways, I want to talk about that new product that you can get on sale at Ulta right now that has really helped the lifespan of my red hair last way longer in between salon visits!
Joico is a hair care brand that specializes colored treated hair. It is the perfect brand for anyone who may have alternative hair colors such as red, blonde, pink, purple, blue, green…you name it! Ulta’s sale on these products which is normally $16.99 per bottle, is on sale at 2 for $20!
Here is how I use this product: I wash my hair every 4 days, so generally twice a week. Every other wash is with this shampoo as opposed to my Sexy Hair Shampoo which is also on sale for 2 for $20!
The reason that I only use it every other time is because the Joico shampoo is very strong and can sometimes dry out your hair if you use it too frequently. You have been warned! Whether you have red hair, purple hair, pink hair or rainbow colored hair, really think about investing in this brand. It has not let me down and my hair is really looking more vibrant than ever!
It is always a good thing to adjust your hair routine as the weather changes and since we are about to go into much hotter weather and endless days with a happy yet merciless sun, I thought it would be a good idea to blog about an update summer hair care routine. I also want to quickly mention this hair sunscreen I am trying right now that has impressed me so far: Sun Bum’s 3 in 1 Leave In Conditioning Treatment. It is a spray that really works wonders and yes, this brand sells skin care treatments. All their products smell heavenly and I am really obsessed with this brand!
That’s all I have for you guys, let me know what you think of this post and I just want to say, have a great weekend and stay stylish!
