Tips for Colored Hair

I decided to color my hair in January.  It was my New Year’s Resolution to go back to my original coloring, plus I wanted to look distinctive at the Westin St. Francis New Year’s Bash in SF!  I was light blonde at age 5 or 6 and got darker throughout the years.  I’ve been told my face looks brighter due to the changes!  I feel it gives me an edge in the modeling world.  The first salon I went to in Union Square overcharged me, so I decided to go to the International School of Cosmetology on Polk, where they made me sit for four hours while they turned my hair different crazy colors.  I found that going outside the city got me a better deal on hair maintenance.  It was a third-times-the-charm scenario!  I’ve been getting my hair touched up at Sahaira in Rockridge with Katie Woodall for just $65, and that is without blow drying.  I have experimented with different color safe shampoos, conditioners, and masks, and so far, my favorite products to use are by Biolage Matrix.  You can leave the conditioner in for 1-3 minutes and then rinse it out and the mask, which you leave in for 15 min. and rinse out, is used once a week.  Fekkai color safe products are great too and can be found at any Walgreen’s location.   I have also been experimenting with olive oil pudding once a day for styling and keeping hair silky and shiny around the roots!  You can get it at most drug stores.  Check these products out!
