What better way to start a new year than a brand new hair style? …bonus points of course for a new color as well 😉
If this were true….I guess good for me since I opted for both options! But let’s rewind a bit and talk about my hair situations for those of you who are not familiar with my head. I promise I am going to be brief 😜
I was born with really dark … and I mean really dark black hair. I am pretty sure my half indian heritage was responsible for my natural color. However, during my teen years I was a little over my head and bored by my color #hugeregretallert, so I went from beautiful luminous black hair to literally FIRE “FRIED” RED hair. Since than nothing has ever been the same😂. #endofthestory
Regardless of the brief recap I LOVE LOVE to change my hair, it just gives me so much joy, especially experimenting with bold colors, I literally live for the say “life is too short to have boring hair” but the biggest challenge is always how to keep HEALTHY Hair while having fun with it, therefore I always go to a professional since I learned my lesson the hard way!
By all means I am no expert at all when it comes to hair, but I sure try my best to look after them in my very lazy schedule of things.
So for those of you who are interested this is what I use nowadays I always do a hair mask once sometimes twice a week and I leave it on for at least 30 minutes. Once a month I use also coconut oil on my hair ( Indian moms best secret for healthy hair I guess…) to give the hair extra nourish and love.
As for shampoo I use mostly the Gold Quinoa protein Absolute Repair from L’Oreal SerieExpert and from time to time since I am blond now I throw in the mix the purple shampoo Blondifier from the same SerieExpert line.
As for the drying and styling of the hair I always use some drops of the olaplex N°7 bonding oil and the l’Oreal SerieExpert repair spray.
As you can see I have tried my fair share of colors, but I always take a break in from time to time to avoid stressing my hair too much and leave it alone to their natural self.
In September I decided to try to go blonde ( or at least try to achieve a cool toned head) so I started a real long journey of highlighting and toning my hair gradually. However a change like this as required a lot of effort but so far I am loving it, so I ‘ll hold on and be patient!
IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT GOING BLONDE and have fine hair like mine, here is my list of DO’S and DON’ T from experience:
- USE HAIR MASK
- LIMIT the use of HOT STYLING TOOLS
- AVOID TOUCHING YOUR HAIR… this is so damn hard for me 😭
- LIMIT WASHING YOUR HAIR in a week ( I generally wash them twice a week … or once if possible)
- USE HAIR OIL on your ends
- Take HAIR VITAMINS to prevent HAIR LOSS
- ALWAYS use HEAT PROTECTOR SPRAY
- AVOID TYING YOUR HAIR as much as possible to prevent breackage
Changing hair is loads of fun and a great way to express yourself too, however some “looks” may require more care and attentions than other so always consider how low or high maintenance you can go to 😉 and tell me what is your dream hair color?
Hope you have a lovely week
