How to Keep your hair UNICORN bright.

SO many people told me not to do bright colors on my hair because they fade out really quickly, but that hasn't been my experience at all so I'm going to share what I do to keep it bright. You know, for future reference, Fall may not be the best time to go pink or purple, but come Spring it's ON!

YES. You have to lighten your hair, can you put colors over dark, sure, but it won't last. When I went pink we did heavy highlights first and used Joico color over top. 

I only wash my hair every three days - usually straight day 1 - curled day 2 - and a bun or braid on day 3.

That for sure keeps your color fresh longer, but using a color depositing shampoo/conditioner helps tremendously!  Lightening your hair dries it out, so I used It's a 10 Haircare Miracle Shampoo 2x a week and the Viral Color Wash 1x a week. I also used Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Conditioner each time I washed.

When I went back to change from pink to purple we had to use a color stripper that turned my hair white, then added Joico {darker} purple at the roots and a {lighter} purple on the ends.

I've also started using a The Beachwaver on it instead of my curling wand, the clamp style really just saves my arms from having to hold my hair around the wand - plus no burning myself. I think it's better than a curling iron because my hair {that is naturally stick straight} holds curl longer with a wand/beachwaver.

I pretty much have children all over Dallas thinking I'm a unicorn because of my hair. I've had such a positive reaction to my hair that it's been a great experience for me, it's not something I plan to keep up, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts :) Do things in life because YOU want to, whatever makes YOU happy.
