My natural hair is curly and thick, but can get really frizzy in the humidity.  At the salon I ask for cool blonde highlights and style my hair with a blow dry and curling wand a few times a week.  Here is how I maintain a light blonde hair color and try to keep it long and healthy:

1. Wash less:

By Friday, my hair is 90% dry shampoo, lol.  Everyone has different hair types, but I like to wash my hair 2-3 times a week to cut down on heat damage and maintain my hair color.  I can get by days with this dry shampoo and good old fashion shower caps. This light tones dry shampoo has a subtle fresh scent, brightens the hair color and helps cover up roots.

2. Use a purple toning conditioner to avoid brassiness:

I saw a huge difference in my hair color when I started using this purple conditioner that my colorist recommended.  I put it on for about ten minutes once a week to cancel out the brassy undertones and bring out more of a cool white blonde.

3. Repair and Restore:

This conditioner really helps calm down my curls and frizz.  My mom (who has naturally thin straight hair) actually got me into using this shampoo and conditioner when we were on a trip last year. When I use this combo, my hair is so much easier to manage and comb through after my shower.

4. Try Hair Vitamins:

I heard about the Sugar Bear Hair vitamins from a friend when I asked how her hair looked so healthy and long.  I’ve been taking them in the morning with my coffee for about a month and have already noticed a difference in my length.   I always get nervous getting a hair cut, but have been trying to be better about getting a ‘dry trim’ every few months to keep the ends healthy.

5. Finish styling with an oil:

I’m on my third bottle of this nourishing hair oil. It helps tame curls, fight frizz and adds shine without weighing hair down.  I use this before and after blowdrying.
