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.

How To Achieve Healthy Hair While Traveling

How To Achieve Healthy Hair While Traveling 1000 562 Remilia Hair

Raise your hand if you have an upcoming trip planned? Perhaps it’s time for a vacation, or maybe you have an important work meeting on the horizon? Whatever the case, when travel is involved, it generally means pulling out that luggage and packing it with your essentials.

But hey, what exactly are those essentials? How do you pick and choose what to bring with you on a trip? Especially when baggage weight and airport security is involved.  

Don’t worry, friends. We’ve got a solution for you. Or, at least a solution that will ease up plenty of space in your luggage, without sacrificing your beauty routine.

‘Cause seriously, how many times have you left something at home, only to realize that product would have come in handy while traveling? Or perhaps you’re bringing full size bottles of products, adding to luggage weight and forcing you to check a bag when a carry on would be much more practical?

Say goodbye to this pesky scenario, and say hello to your new haircare solution for travel. The Cosmocap!

With this little baby in your arsenal of beauty products, it works just as well at home or on the road, without causing you any of the usual inconvenience you’ll find with full size hair products.

Don’t believe us? Let’s talk about how The Cosmocap can help whether you’re going on a quick trip, or on a full blown vacation.

Packing the Cosmocap For a Quick Trip

 

We’ve all been there: we’re packing for a quick trip that requires some airplane travel. Whether it’s going to see family, a weekend trip with your BF, or an important conference in another state, in these scenarios, a carry on is usually the best bet.

But hey, with weight and space restrictions, what are the first products you’re likely to eliminate from your luggage?

There’s no way you’re sacrificing those killers heels you bought specifically for this trip, and you’re not about to part ways with your favorite cleanser and moisturizer duo.

You start to wonder whether you really need those extra hair care products for just a quick trip? Maybe you could get away with a messy bun throughout the weekend?

Sure, you could, but if shiny, silky hair was possible without having to sacrifice on weight or room in your luggage, wouldn’t you want it?

Of course! And with The Cosmocap in your beauty routine, you can have it.

Our capsules are small, portable, and weigh next to nothing. And hey, best of all, the serum is contained in a biodegradable capsule, so you don’t have to feel guilty about contributing any waste to the environment.

Simply throw a couple of our capsules into a clear plastic bag, and you’ve got the perfect hair care companion that will ensure your hair is looking its absolute best all throughout your trip, even when you’re travelling with a simple carry on.

Packing The Cosmocap For Vacation

Even when a carry on isn’t possible, and you’re packing for a longer length trip, we still tend to make some sacrifices when it comes to packing our beauty products.

Once again, a similar narrative runs through our minds: Do we really need that special hair treatment? Couldn’t we just pack our hair serum in a reusable container to reduce weight? Maybe we should just skip the hair treatments altogether and focus on skincare?  

Stop right there. At Remilia, we believe that hair comes first.

And that most certainly applies to when you’re embarking on a vacation.

In fact, haircare tends to be even more important when heading on vacation. Nobody wants to spend their vacation prepping in the bathroom because their hair is so damaged and unmanageable. Not to mention, vacation often means plenty of humidity and salt water. Say hello to frizz and dry hair.

With some capsules of The Cosmocap packed safely away in your luggage, not only can you easily bring hair care products with you without sacrificing on space in your luggage, your hair is also guaranteed to look healthy, smooth, and shiny while on vacation.

Plus, each capsule is packed individually, meaning you’ll be able to bring the exact amount of capsules you’ll need throughout the trip, and you won’t have to worry about a reusable container leaking onto the rest of your belongings. Not a bad deal, right?

If you’re ready to stop sacrificing your hair care while on vacation, and you’re ready to pack for trips like the smart cookie that we know you are, it’s time to discover The Cosmocap.

Travel Hair Care Routine for Stressed-Out Hair – By @reneebigtime 450 600 Remilia Hair

Travel is part of my job description and also one of the many things that STRESSES my hair out! My curls get dry and brittle by the time my plane lands, no matter how long the trip. Over the years I’ve picked up a few tricks to help rehabilitate my locks. The ones that work the best for me is to apply a leave-in conditioner, hair mask, or hair oil and wrap my hair into a bun, or braided into pigtails for the duration of the flight.

The other day I came across The Cosmocap by Remilia hair. A unique encapsulated hair serum that locks in moisture. The Cosmocap uses advanced Italian technology with a mix of powerful ingredients to bring you the perfect cocktail for your hair. It’s formulated with pro vitamin B-5, keratin amino acids & silk protein to repair, strengthen and hydrate. Because of its many benefits and easy to travel with capsules, I’ve added it to my travel hair prep routine.
