There is nothing sexier than a woman with luscious locks. Long or short, straight or tousled - our hair needs constant care.
Here are some tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way:
Hair coloring can allow you to change your look, improve texture, increase volume, or simply cover up gray hair. Instead of a block color, try highlights or lowlights which give hair a natural sun-kissed appearance. Make sure to maintain your hair's color with regular treatment.
HIGLIGHTS – lightens and brightens the hair in shades or blonde or gold
LOWLIGHTS – adds volume with deeper shades of auburn, plum, or chestnut
Don't turn up at the hair salon for a color treatment with freshly washed hair. Unwashed hair allows roots to show up better and color to penetrate deeper.
My Amazing Sheer Spray Dry Shampoo
The darker your hair color the more SPF protection it needs. The sun can bleach away richness, leaving color flat and dry. Skip any shampoos with sulfates, as they are just as bad (on colored hair) as the sun.
Use a thermal protection product before you blow dry to protect and quicken your drying time. The conditioners and polymers in these products will protect your hair.
Apply a hair volumizer to the roots of damp hair. Add lift by flipping over blow-drying your hair upside down.
Brushing out knots from the roots down results in tearing and stretching the hair shaft. Instead, start at the bottom and work your way slowly upwards. Use a leave-in conditioner to help with difficult areas.
Just like your hair - brushes, combs, and styling tools need regular washing to avoid build up. Use shampoo in some warm water and dunk in your brushes for about 10 minutes.
Spray some hairspray onto your brush and brush through hair. Wrap a silk scarf around your hairbrush and brush your hair with it for lustrous shine.
Last but not the least, MAKE FRIENDS WITH YOUR HAIRDRESSER. If he (or she) understands you and your personality, he can give you a cut and color that will bring out the best version of yourself. A good visit to the salon can instantly lift your spirits.
