How I Keep My Hair Blonde And Healthy

How I Keep My Hair Blonde And Healthy 944 1024 Remilia Hair

I have been getting this question a lot: how is your hair so healthy, yet so blonde?

To be completely honest, my hair used to suck. Circa 2008 I was playing water polo and swimming pretty much 365 days a year and the chlorine did nothing good for me. This was my senior year of high school, so I splurged on hair extensions in the spring. They were the bonded type, which lasted me well through graduation and our senior trip to Cancun. Well, apparently you can’t get drunk for seven days in a row and neglect your extensions (they don’t tell you this when you get them put in). I came home with a massive dreadlock on the back of my head. The extensions needed to come out immediately, so I did it myself, and melted all of the wax bonds at home with my straightener. Unfortunately, with the extensions came out 75% of my natural hair. My hair post-extensions was so thin and gross, and needed a serious chop. I cried (true story).

Throughout college, I dabbled with different hairstylists and an excessive amount of bleach. My hair never really got past a shoulder-length, and I was dying to have mermaid locks, so I thought going brunette was the solution. Two words: Never. Again.

After going brunette, I said goodbye to my Fresno hairdresser and came back to my hometown salon. My hairstylist at home is an old family friend, and treats my hair like it’s her own. She had to do a lot of damage control after years of terrible bleach and an outgrown brunette dye-job, but over time my hair started to grow again. To this day, she refuses to let me go past a certain level of platinum for the sake of protecting my hair. While it can be frustrating not having full control over my color, keeping my hair a consistent blonde for six-plus years has been a game changer.

I have also made a real conscious effort to cut my hair every eight weeks. I used to wholeheartedly believe that if I never cut it, it would stay long— and while it did, it was never actually healthy. Sometimes I can persuade my hairdresser to let me skip a trim, but more times than not I’m cleaning up my jagged ends every time I see her. This has helped my hair in ways that I can’t even explain.

 

 

Outside of the salon, I try to keep up with a healthy at-home hair routine. I try to limit myself to washing my hair to 1-2 days a week. Not only does this help with the oil production, but it helps me avoid using unnecessary heat on my hair, too. And, I mean, washing your hair is just a hassle.

In the shower, I have three ride-or-dies. The first two are my Pureology products. I swear by the Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo and Conditioner. The second is the Redken Extreme Cat Protein Reconstructing Hair Treatment. The protein spray is a rinse-off formula that I use a couple times a month, and works as a more affordable option to a professional Keratin treatment. These three products have worked very, very well for my hair.

Once my hair is towel-dried, I spray in a tiny bit of It’s A 10 so I can easily comb through my hair. I use a hair pick for this, because I’ve found that it allows me to work through my tangles more gently than a brush would. After my hair is detangled, I’ll use my favorite hair serum from Remilia Hair. The Cosmocap from Remilia helps add shine and prevent breakage by using silk protein and keratin amino acids. Honestly, it’s a miracle product. I love how my hair feels after the Cosmocap, and I doubt I’ll ever go back.

Nine times out of ten, I’ll let my hair air dry, and avoid curling or straightening as much as possible. If I am curling it, I use the Navy Hair Care Style Navigator beforehand, to protect my hair from the heat and frizz.

My hair is still pretty thin and has a long way to go, but if you’ve seen where its been, you’d be amazed. I’m really happy with my routine right now, and if just one person benefits from this long-winded post, it was well worth it.

Why Hair Care Is Key To Your Beauty Routine

Why Hair Care Is Key To Your Beauty Routine 1000 667 Remilia Hair

As ladies who want to both look and feel great, we understand that having a beauty routine is key to taking proper care of yourself.

This can include anything from skincare, to pampering sessions and manicures, or even to just playing with makeup; however, there’s one essential component that we know should never be neglected when it comes to your beauty routine: hair care.

Why? Well, first and foremost, because as a brand we strongly believe that hair comes first.  Always.

Because remember, your hair can determine your overall look. Trust us, if you show up to an event with dead, dry, and damaged hair, it really doesn’t matter how you style the rest of your look, your overall style is going to appear lackluster.

Not ideal, right? We didn’t think so. So today, we’re going to share with you five reasons for why your hair care routine is oh-so-important, and how you can implement your own routine today.

Let’s dive in!

1)   Damaged Hair Kills Your Look

Like we mentioned, damaged hair can really kill your entire look, but let’s elaborate on that, shall we? So, not only will damaged hair bring down your overall look, it’s also going to impact how you feelThink of it this way: when you’re having a bad hair day, how does it impact how you feel about yourself?

We’re going to go out on a limb here and say that a bad hair day isn’t exactly your idea of a good time. Develop a good hair care routine, and you’ll never have to hide beneath a baseball cap again.  

2) Your Hair Won’t Grow

Now, we know that not everyone is looking to grow out their hair, but for those of you who are, you’ll never be able to do so if you’re not taking proper care of your hair.

Long, luxurious hair that gets all the attention is only achieved when you take proper care of your locks, and a routine is an absolute essential part of that.

3) With Hair Care, You Have The Power

Here’s the deal with hair care: you have the power to change it, right now.

While things like skincare might be more difficult to manage, with hair care you can implement a routine today that would make a difference. Really, all it takes is the decision to start treating your hair with love and attention, and you’ll see an immediate change.

On the other hand, if you simply continue to accept your dry and damaged hair without any action, that will always be your hair’s reality.

4) Neglected Hair Will Continue To Get Worse

Blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons, for many of us, applying heat to our hair can be a daily occurrence.

But guess what? Each time you apply these damaging products to your hair, your hair will just get more and more damaged. Seems pretty logical, and yet many of us continue to do it.

What’s the solution? How can you improve your hair’s appearance while still styling it to your desired look? You need to implement a hair care routine. Plain and simple.

If you don’t, well, then get used to dry and damaged hair.
