It’s no secret that I color my hair. In fact, in the six years I’ve been writing on this blog, I think I’ve gone from blonde to brown to blonde back to brown again. Right now it is brown and I think it is the closest I’ve ever been to my natural color since high school. High school being the time before I started coloring my hair.
I haven’t been to the salon in a LONG time. My stylist up and had a baby and I’ve been looking for a new one in the City. I have a few names, but this time of year I’m so busy, I haven’t had time to actually make an appointment. At this rate, my stylist will be back from maternity leave and I’ll have to make an appointment due to my faded, dull hair that has grown to Rapunzel lengths.
So my stylist used to work at a salon. Now she’s on her own. The thing about this that pisses me off is that she doesn’t have a salon full of hair products that I can buy and be reminded to buy every time I get my hair done. Which means I’m left to my own devices when it comes to buying shampoo and conditioner.
And here is where the problem starts – I am lazy and I shop for hair products at the grocery store. Do you know what that means? It means my color lasts like 2 weeks and my hair looks like crap. Especially now that it is winter and DRY, DRY, DRY. Because I buy crap shampoo and conditioner from the grocery store.
There is a reason the saying “you get what you pay for” exists. Because sometimes it is necessary to buy higher-end shampoo and conditioner so that you can protect the investment of coloring/dyeing on your hair.
Enter Fekkai and their Salon Technician Color Care™ collection. This is the perfect thing to not only protect your color from the elements and crappy shampoo, but also a way to keep your hair healthy through all the damage we put it through with blow dryers, curling irons and flat irons.
