Everyone loves that fresh out of the salon feel when they get their hair done. The minute you walk outside, you feel like a million bucks. Your hair feels healthier, bouncier and shinier than ever before. While you may try to protect your investment as much as possible, there are a few bad habits that you might be doing that will cost you later.
1. Using the wrong shampoo: Ladies, (especially my beautiful redheads) if you just spent over $200 to get a beautiful shade of color put into your hair, the last thing you want is to see it wash down the drain each time you wash it. If you want to maintain the vibrancy of your hair color, choose a sulfate-free option when it comes to your shampoo. If you feel like your hair is getting brassy (I'm looking at you, my blonde bombshells) then incorporate a violet shampoo to keep your hair looking fresh.
2. Using the wrong styling tools: If you've ever gone shopping for a hair brush, you'll notice plenty of options when it comes to bristle types, sizes and shapes. Depending on your hair and texture, you'll want to choose wisely. You'll also want to invest in a few different types for different styling jobs. Talk to your stylist or beauty advisor about the best options for your particular hair type.
