So I have to confess I do not wash my every day and I don't get it colored nearly as often as I should. I do my best to extend styles as long as humanly possible, especially if I get my hair "done." I have very fine, color treated hair. That means lots of problems with frizz, breakage, and roots that somehow give away all my secrets.... Here are the few finds that help me get the most of out of my salon dos...
Extend My Color
For an immediate color fix I use Keratin Complex Blonde Dry Shampoo. This blonde colored powder is great to soak any excess oils but importantly to cover my roots (And I am sure my grays but I am in denial about those). It is a great quick fix to apply to a part and no one will be the wiser that you need to get into the salon. This great product also comes in several shades so blondes are not the only beneficiaries of this great product. I found it on super sale here (this link also goes to brown and clear colored dry shampoo too).
The other product I love is by John Frieda. The Go Blonder Lightening Spray actually is a dye spray that changes the color of your hair gradually (I usually use it 3-4 times to get to my lightened color). I often travel and I may be 3-4 weeks later than I should be in getting to my color. This spray is my salvation. I spray all over my routes and it actually lifts that color so the break is not nearly as severe. Also I have never had any bad effects from mixing this with my salon color. The other great thing about this product and tested by my brown headed bestie Mandy - an all over spray gives her natural highlights all over without drying out ends. A win win for everyone!
Extend My Style
I am a Dry Bar junkie. I have one literally across the street from my house - really... (my paycheck mostly goes here). I love the smell of their products - all of them and my hair dresser always asks me what I have been using. That means it is good stuff all around. One of my favorite products of theirs is the Triple Sec. I have not found any similar products for keeping curls and adding volume and seriously having the most amazing 2nd or 3rd post "do" scent. It does not leave hair sticky or brittle either. I also love this when I have "natural" hair - i.e. my natural waves without straightening. Its great to give volume and lift and texture to natural waves.
So here is to great hair for days and days and days!
