My hair has always been a huge conversation piece!  Some people love it and some people hate it.  It is funny how someone will just walk up to me and tell me “Your hair is too fried!” OR “I like your hair straight, not curly” OR “Why is your hair so thick, you need to trim it.”  When I was younger, I used to get offended but now I don’t care.  I like that I have BIG, THICK hair.  Yeah there are some days, especially when it is hot out, I want to shave my head because I can’t stand the heat.  And because my hair is super thick it takes FOREVER to blow dry and then I have to separate it into 5 different sections to curl it…my hair has its own life!
I think I have been coloring my hair since junior high!  I have dabbled in other colors…I was once a red head and even a brunette, but in the end, being blonde has always been my thing!  So bleaching my hair takes a huge toll on my hair.  And since I get dark roots, I have to do it quite often. 
So a big question I get is what products do I use?  I love trying new products if I get a good recommendation but right now I am in love with Kerastase.  After a month of using their products, my hair is softer and SO MUCH healthier.  They have a whole line of products that can fit anyone’s needs, but here are the products I use for my hair…
BAIN CHROMA RICHE - Luminous Softening Shampoo for Dry Highlighted or Color-Treated Hair

I am obsessed with this shampoo!  I used to hate taking showers because of the work but I love shampooing my hair with this stuff.  First, it SMELLS amazing!!!  And when I work it into my scalp it instantly feels so soft.
MASQUE CHROMA RICHE - Luminous Softening Treatment Masque for Dry Highlighted or Color-Treated Hair
This hair masque is awesome!  You do have to be careful on how much you use, if you use too much it can leave a waxy feel, but if you use the right amount (about a quarter size) your hair will feel so silky.  And with my hair, that is hard with all the bleach!
Hair is left softer and shimmers with radiance. Intensity and depth of the color are revealed, while hair fiber is protected from external aggressions.

Okay this stuff comes from heaven!  I put it in right before I blow dry my hair and it makes my hair so incredibly soft and shiny!  It is on the pricy side but for those who have hair like me, it is a must!!!

Elixir Ultime delivers a powerful cocktail of emollient and anti-oxidant active ingredients for ultimate shine and suppleness while promoting cellular renewal. The elixir brings shine, nourishment and deep conditioning to the hair while smoothing the hair fiber, resulting in incredible shine. The multi-use elixir also helps restore strength to the hair and protects it from external aggressors.

CIMENT ANTI-USURE - Reinforcing and Refinishing Treatment for Damaged Lengths and Ends
I use this product to protect my roots from the heat!!!  Blow driers, straighteners, curling irons all do major damage to my hair and this really helps my hair stay healthy.

Ciment Anti-Usure strengthens and protects damaged mid-lengths and ends. Helps provide instant detangling and lightweight conditioning.
This is the one product I get in the drugstore…I love this hairspray…I need a hair spray that will do a great job of holding the curls since my hair is so heavy.  I love it because it doesn’t spray on wet and it doesn’t harden my hair.  I can still run my hands through my hair and it will hold the curl all day long!  I can even go to sleep with it in my hair and I when I wake up I still have my curls in tack.  Awesome stuff!
So just like my skin care routine, my hair care routine is pretty intense too but I need to protect my hair from all the damage I do.  I refuse to give up being a blonde!
What are your favorite hair products???
I hope you all have a fabulous day!
