How I Keep My Colored Hair Healthy

The Post
Daily Dose

1. Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo: I only use this once a week (I usually only wash it 1-2 times per week) and it helps strengthen and repair. I like to rotate my shampoos – a few other favorites are this Biolage one, this Pureology one, and this Kenra one.

2. dpHUE Cool Blonde Shampoo: I use this once a week and only need a small amount! It helps neutralize yellow and brassy tones. I’ve also tried and liked this Olaplex one and this Redkin one.

3. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Triple Detox Shampoo: I only use this shampoo when I have a lot of build up. It doesn’t strip my hair or make it feel dry like some others have done.

4. It’s a 10 Miracle Hair Mask: I’ve been using this for almost 10 years and it’s a must-have for my thick, frizzy hair. It makes it soft, smooth, moisturized, and overall super healthy. I literally cannot wash it without this! I use a few pumps and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and rinse it out.

5. Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray: This helps decrease blow-dry time, smooths, resist humidity, and provides heat protection. It’s very lightweight and smells amazing!

6. Kenra Platinum Hot Spray 20: I spray this on each section of dry hair before curling it. Helps with heat protection and firm hold. My only knock is sometimes it’s hard to spray it out of the bottle – I wish they would redesign!

7. Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil: My hairstylist introduced me to this oil and this and now it’s a staple. I use it after I style my hair and it makes it look smooth and shiny. It can also be used on wet hair before you dry.

8. Claw Hair Clips: I try to avoid hair ties so I use these clips or these silk scrunchies.

9. Natural Bristle Hair Brush: I haven’t bit the bullet and bought the Mason Pearson brush everyone raves about BUT I think I found a great dupe!

10. Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo: I’ve tried a lot of dry shampoos and this is the one I keep coming back to. It smells heavenly and doesn’t leave any residue on my scalp!
