Before I went to Miami for Winter Music Conference, I decided to get my first Keratin treatment. My hair was pretty damaged from the amount of bleach I used on it over the past two years (mainly from when I was trying to figure out how to become a blonde at home). Well, if there's anything I learned about going to music events and festivals, it's that my hair will always go from looking cute to looking like a frizzy mop on my head. Getting the keratin treatment made my life soooo much easier, especially during my Miami trip. Of course...it also helped that I wanted to get a low maintenance bob last minute. (Does anyone else ever get the urge to chop off your hair into a bob during the warmer months??) Well, my hair is so much more manageable now and I even had my boyfriend tell me it felt a lot healthier. When you get a keratin treatment, you also have to purchase sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner if you want to prolong the life of your gorgeous new hair. The sulfate in most regular shampoos will strip the keratin from your hair much faster than it would if you were to switch to a sulfate-free shampoo and because I have blonde hair, I also need a shampoo that will tone my hair to get the brassiness out. Lucky for me, I found Loreal's Blonde Brass Banisher shampoo which turned out to be sulfate-free as well! I really fell in love with this shampoo and conditioner more than I originally thought. My previous purple shampoo was extremely harsh on my hair and I would rarely use it because it left my hair feeling dry and brittle, but this shampoo left my hair feeling super soft. Normally, with sulfate-free shampoos, I have to wash at least three times before I feel like my hair is clean. Not with this one. I only need one good wash and my hair feels clean. If you decide to use this shampoo, be sure to keep it in your hair for at least five minutes before washing it out. My friends could instantly tell my hair was more ash toned and less brassy. If you are a blondie who just got a keratin treatment, I highly recommend this line! Have any other products you think I should check out? Let me know!
Until next time,
Good vibes, good hair, and good wine
