SHOP THE POST
Hi my pretties! I hope y'all are having a wonderful day so far!
As most of you have probably noticed in my photos, I've lightened my hair for the summer months. Needless to say, I had to start using all different hair care products because the bleach definitely changed the texture of my hair! I'm going to share with y'all the products that are now my current faves, from shampoos to texture spray!
My goal with my new lighter locks was to have a blue/gray toned blonde, but my hair ALWAYS pulls a gold tone, which I hate on me! So I've been on a quest for shampoos, rinses, toners, etc. to keep my hair having a cool tone instead of warm. I found an amazing product from Amika (which is one of my favorite hair care brands of all time). This product is called Bust Your Brass and it's a violet based leave in foam, which is awesome! I use this product every few days. Ya just pump a handful of the foam in your palm and run it through damp hair (after you wash). When you dry it you'll notice your locks are cool and gorgeous! :) Best part is, you can't feel it in your hair at all- no residue or heaviness.
I almost forgot to mention: I use a purple shampoo, that you can shop above, a few times per week in the shower!
If you decide to buy this shampoo, HERE'S AN IMPORTANT TIP!! When you use it make sure you let it sit in your hair for about 5 minutes! BUT don't leave it in too long because your hair will literally turn purple, haha!
FOR BLOW DRYING
I don't know about you guys, but my ends tend to get really dry and frizzy! My hair is frizzy in general, and the more bleach I put on it, the more dry my ends are ? But these two products really help!
I forgot to include this product in the photo above, but I use the Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray as soon as I am ready to brush through all of my wet tangles. Spray it from root to ends and then brush through and I feel like it really prevents the breakage that normally happens in this step.
After that, I start drying my hair and when the ends start getting a little dry, I use the Living Proof Blowout Concentrate! I use one small pump and run it through the ends of my hair (be careful not to use too much of this because it can make your hair a little greasy if so). Then I continue blow drying. When my hair is completely dry, I use the Living Proof Instant Defrizz-er Spray, if it's extra humid outside or my hair is still frizzy. It really takes out the frizz!! Sometimes I don't need this product, but lately with this Texas heat, it's a must! If your ends look good with the concentrate alone, then don't use this spray with it or it'll definitely get oily! That's no bueno, lol.
Most days I curl my hair and try to go for a beachy/wave look. I had tried a ton of different texture sprays to get that tousled, lived-in look and finally found two favorites! After I curl my hair (curling wand linked above), I use the Amika Touchable Hairspray and let it sit for a few minutes to hold. Then I run my fingers through the curls for a more natural wave look and finish off with the Amika Undone Texture Spray. Spray this all over, don't be shy! This gives the perfect hold, but still allows movement for a super natural beach wave look. Oh and ALL of the Amika products smell AMAZING!!!! They literally need a perfume, haha!
I hope you guys enjoy hearing about my favorite products! Let me know what you think and in the comment section below! Love you guys!
