My Current Hair Care Routine
Like you all know, I have had blonde hair for almost a year now. Through the constant dyeing, bleaching, toning, and hair styling, it has gone through a lot. Since the weather is getting cooler, a lot of people's hair are prone to static and frizz so I thought this would be a good time to make a post about my hair care routine.
I've been using this shampoo for about a month and I really like it. I chose it because it had keratin in it which is a protein that helps restore your hair and makes it feel really smooth. I feel like it's a conditioning shampoo because it makes my hair feel so smooth similar to if I condition it. Sometimes if I get too lazy, it would just use this and just skip conditioner.
If you start dyeing or bleaching your hair, conditioner is VERY important. I use this because it has keratin and it is part of the line with the shampoo. Also, usually you will get the best results when you layer up on the products that is suppose to enhance the benefits like this.
This is probably new to some of you, but this is purple shampoo. Yes, this shampoo is really purple! This is supposed to help people with blonde hair maintain the blonde and eliminate some of the brassiness from bleaching. I don't always use this and my reason is probably going to sound weird, but it's because I don't want my hair to get used to it. I don't want this shampoo's effect to wear off on me so I only use it when I feel like my hair looks extra brassy for some reason.
If I use this shampoo, I HAVE to use conditioner after because this purple shampoo does not condition at all. It just adds purple pigments to counter-balance the brassiness.
This is the heat protection spray I use when I style my hair. I've been using it for years and whenever I run out, I will re-purchase it. I guess I'm just a loyal consumer to Tresemme if you can't already tell.~
This is probably the weirdest one out of the items listed, but I have switched to using satin pillowcases for over a year now. Believe it or not, satin pillowcases prevent hair breakage which is important to me especially because I bleached my hair. Since it prevents breakage that means it also helps reduces frizz.
And that's it! Pretty simple, right? I don't really do anything that different compared to when I just dyed my hair and not bleach it. The only difference is that I leave my condition in longer, avoid using any heating tools as much as possible (which is pretty easy since I'm lazy), and switched to using satin pillowcases.
Hope this post was somewhat helpful!
