I recently gave myself a little mommy makeover (2 months postpartum what what!) and decided to add some highlights to my naturally dark brown hair. I seldom add color to my hair because the word “bleach” has always scared me but I really wanted a nice change for spring. I stopped by the dpHUE house to get my hair done by the color King Justin Anderson – his celebrity client roster includes Miley Cyrus, kelly Osbourne, Kim Kardashian, Emma Roberts, Leighton Meester, Jennifer aniston.. to name a few. He also gave me some great tips on how to take care of my color treated hair at home to prevent damage. While I was there, I expressed my fears and since I’m someone who applies heat to my hair on the reg, I needed to know exactly what products to use at home to maintain a healthy color.
We decided to add a few tints of lighter brown shades throughout the mid to ends of my hair which is really easy to maintain. I don’t like visiting the salon every 3-6 weeks if I don’t have to so he suggested we stay away from highlighting the roots which will allow me to go longer without the salon visits. We did add a base to my roots to dye the greys I had and he gave me the dpHUE at home hair color which is salon quality DIY (better than drugstore box dyes which can dry out your hair!) Check out some of the other tips and products from dpHUE that you can use to keep your hair color healthy and shiny!
Justin’s Tips for Healthy Color-Treated Hair:
Don’t over shampoo! — Use dpHUE ACV Hair Rinsein place of shampoo + conditioner a few times a week to lock in color while gently cleansing hair. Trust me, your hair + hair color with THANK YOU for it!
To keep warm tones away — Use dpHUE Cool Blonde Shampoo + Conditioner to fight brass. The violent pigment in both of these products with neutralize warm tones in the hair to keep a “cooler” look. Don’t be fooled by the term “blonde” in the title — any hair color can use this to keep brass at bay.
Use a clear oil to add moisture + shine back into the hair. — Use dpHUE Argan Oil Therapy on wet or dry hair to tame frizz + add the shine to you hair color. The reason it’s so important to use a clear oil it to prevent the oil from tinting your hair color. A lot of oils have an amber or rose tint to them that can add warm + turn blonde hair color too warm + yellow.
I am a huge fan of all the dpHUE products (many of you have seen them in myBless Box!) because the quality is rich in every product and really makes a healthier difference for color-treated hair. You can also find their products at Sephora and Ulta!
