I recently got blonde highlights (on my dark brown hair) and the colorist used way too much bleach and now my hair is FRIED. What can I do to fix the damage while the color grows out?
Sadly, this happens more often than you would think. The best thing you can do is give your hair a few weeks tro recover and, in the mean time, use a hair treatment to help restore the health of your hair. I really love Fekkai Protein Rx Anti-Breakage Treatment Mask since it’s formulated for brittle, broken hair that has been weakened from coloring, relaxing, or heat styling. If you’re looking for a wallet-friendly option, try VO5 Hot Oil Shower Works, which is also fantastic…and under $10.
I get so jealous when I see pics like THIS…and oh sure, they obviously use extensions, but even with extensions, my hair will never look like that and it infuriates me. I’ve pretty much got down the fine-hair girl hairstyle down (e.g. loose waves or curls with lots of volume on top!) but when I saw this photo of Charlize Theron, I thought there might be some hope that I could pull off a chic low pony.
It’s pretty easy to do, just make sure you curl your hair BEFORE you pull it back, unless you want to look like you’re about to enter a pagaent.
Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion: I’ve been using this stuff for years. YEARS, guys. You just need a tiny amount of the powder (about a quarter size), rub between the palms of your hands, flip your head over and kind of shake it into your scalp. It’s sticky so it won’t fall out (being that your head is flipped over) and it gives a-mazing volume that actually stays.
Hot Tools 1 Inch Curling Iron: It’s funny cause I distinctly remember my first flat iron being Hot Tools brand…and it kinda sucked. But any stylist will tell you that this is the BEST curling iron and, as a bonus, it’s pretty inexpensive.
Goody Ouchless Mini Elastics in Clear: These won’t work for someone who has thick hair so, lucky for us, they’re perfect for this fine hair pony exclusive. They’re great cause they’re clear and can easily be hidden with a single strand of hair wrapped around it.
