I know many of you are probably thinking, “Who goes lighter for Fall?!”
The truth is, I am so much more myself when I’m blonde! My hair is naturally very dark and I feel that it washes out my complexion. I find that lighter hair accentuates my features and makes me feel fabulous!
My Hair Facts:
- I dyed my hair for the first time when I was 21 years old. I got an ombrè, which at that time was popular. I’ve always been very adamant about not directly touching my roots. Coincidentally, I rarely ever use heat on my hair, either. No straightening/curling, etc. (I’m HORRIBLE at blow drying my hair, so that’s mainly why the no heat comes into play) But I do believe that these habits have kept my hair healthy and have enabled the blonde color to lift quicker.
- I discovered the balayage about 2 years ago and haven’t strayed since. I think it gives anyone’s hair lots of dimension, without losing your natural look or color. It’s like an enhanced highlight!
- A normal cut/color will have me sitting in the chair for at least 4 hours! Last night was 4 and half (without a cut), a roll of foiling paper and 2 bowls of bleach/product later. 😛
- I wash my hair every day. (yes, I know hair connoisseurs would kill me right now) but my hair gets greasy rather quickly and I’m not about that life. I have been told that dry shampoo saves lives…anyone attest to this?!
Guys, I’ll be the first to say I don’t always go crazy with fancy shampoos BUT I do always try to protect my blonde. My main shampoo is Matrix Total Results Hello Blondie along with its matching conditioner. This has worked well for me so far! This week I’ll be trying Fanola, No-Yellow shampoo (once a week), given to me by my wonderful and talented friend Alexis. She did my hair and I’m beyond amazed!
For all of you that also aren’t the best at achieving the perfect blow out..have you ever tried the Revlon One-Step Volumizer hair dryer?!? My friends are suggesting I try it so I may give it a whirl! I’ll keep you posted. 😉
