Is your hair broken, damaged or over processed from the sun, chlorine and highlights that you put it through over the summer? I have a friend who even went as far as to change her hair color to a medium brown from a dark blonde. Her hair was breaking from being over processed with highlights. It looks great and she makes a GREAT brunette…but there is a better way to save your end of summer broken hair.
I started doing this a few weeks ago and have noticed a huge difference. My hair is very blonde, thin and breaks easily. It often looks frizzy and I have fly aways that drive me nuts after styling. Do I have your attention? I’m sure you are dying to know my secret to softer and healthier looking hair.
What I’ve been doing lately, is conditioning my hair first. Yep…it’s that easy. I used to shampoo my hair first then leave the conditioner on while I did everything else in the shower or tub. Now, I have reversed that and I put the conditioner on and let it sit until the very end. Then I rinse the conditioner out and shampoo, making sure that I lather it really well so that I get all of the conditioner out. If I DON’T rinse the conditioner well, my hair can be heavy and look greasy by the end of the day. I have been doing this for three weeks now and not only does my hair look healthier, it’s shinier and and has more volume. It’s amazing!
Over the winter I paid $40 to have a deep conditioning treatment at a salon…I had dyed part of my hair blue and it bled, so I looked more like a smurf than myself. I had to go back three times to get the color right and get the blue out of the parts of my hair that I didn’t want it. The color remover was really strong. It stripped and damaged my hair. My hair was hard to comb and tangled easily. Talk about looking frizzy and unhealthy. It looked much better after the $40 conditioning treatment, but I wish I had discovered how to do it at home before I spent the money.
I now do the condition then shampoo routine and follow up with a leave-in heat protecting conditioning spray after I towel dry my hair. Then I’m able to comb through my hair easily and it styles nice and smooth!
Give this method a try and let me know if it helps improve the condition (pun intended) of your hair after a week or two. I think you’ll find it really does help. I’m a believer now!
