Last year I began dyeing my hair with L'oreal Sun-kissed Caramel in Gold. I love it but wanted to make the blonde highlights come out a bit brighter and less brassy. Through shampoo and sunlight, my hair has gotten quite light, as you saw it the previous blog post. I was born a strawberry blonde but it turned brown when I was a wee girl so I have loved this change. I need to dye it again and bought even lighter dye this time. If I like it I'll share it next week. Unfortunately because of my dark roots with white strands I have to dye it about every 4-6 weeks as my hair grows super fast, especially in the summer. So, here are a few things I have learned to care for my light hair:
- Condition it frequently. Once per week I use the thick conditioner that comes with my dye. I also use a mask frequently.
- Shampoo infrequently. I normally only wash my hair every 3 days. I use dry shampoo for my roots in between. This is my favorite. I had a coupon for this new root color. I'm going to have to try it this week...it's bad but have not had time this week to dye.
- Use a serum.
- Use a purple shampoo. One of my favorite blonde attorney's unfortunately cancelled her blog but before she did I saw her post about using it. Let me tell y'all, it's a game changer for my blonde highlights. It makes them even lighter and takes out all brass. I mainly only use it once a week as it is drying but if I need it then I will add a tiny bit with my other shampoo my other day I wash.
I will probably go back darker in the fall but for now, I am loving this beachy blonde look this summer.
