    What the what?! You cut your hair! It looks sooooo cute. I remember you mentioning in a blog post after cutting your hair awhile back you wanted to grow it back out to mermaid waves length. But I must say I’m loving this on you!

    I’m all about skipping on shampooing! I wash my hair 2X a week, but in between I’ll give it a good rinse in the shower without using any shampoo/conditioner.

    I find my hair looks the best when it’s a little dirty ;)

    I have the same mousy brown color dilemma and love doing a coconut oil mask on my hair every month- it makes it so soft!

    I heard “olaplex” sometimes, but I have never used it before. I don’t know the affect of it until now. I think I’m going to try using it.

    This is some great information, and I appreciate your suggestion to only shampoo three times a week with colored hair. I’ve been thinking about dyeing my hair for a while now, and I’ve finally decided to do it. I want to make sure it stays as healthy as possible, so I’ll definitely try to reduce the amount of times I shampoo throughout the week. Thanks for the great post!

    Your tip to leave the conditioner in for extra time was really helpful. It makes sense to allow your hair extra time to absorb the nutrients it needs. It may also help to wash your hair at the same time that you shave so you have that extra time.

    I really do believe that shampooing frequently is not good for the health of your hair. I actually just wash my hair with a cleansing conditioner. My hair can’t stand shampoo, it makes it way too dry. I love the way conditioner makes my hair feel, and I bet it can really help anyone out if they cut back on shampooing a bit more!

    Things that worked for me when it comes to keeping my color is using dry shampoo most of the time. It’s going to sound gross but I was my hair just once a week. I also use a purple shampoo once it starts getting brassy or too warm since I have blonde highlights.

    Olaplex is great; all the good salons in L.A use it. I’ve had Olaplex added before as a treatment after balayage highlights and it enabled the stylist to get me quite blonde in one session. Honestly it was still a tad dry even with the Olaplex, probably would have been falling out without.

    I’ve never dyed my hair before, but my best friend convinced me to try out a new color. I love it, but I’m worried about maintaining the health and color of my hair now. That’s why I really appreciate your tip about looking for hydrating, protein-rich products so that it helps the hair stay strong. I bet if I talked to my salon, they’d have products that would help me. Thanks for sharing!

    You’ve probably heard it before, but it really does help to reduce the number of times you shampoo a week. Think of shampoo like soap for your hair — it can dry it out. So try not to shampoo every time you shower. Just skip it and go straight for the conditioner.

    Even if the directions on your conditioner bottle don’t say to leave it in, do it! Leaving in your conditioner helps give your hair time to absorb all of the hydrating and protein-rich ingredients. I typically wash my hair first so that I can let my conditioner sit while I wash my body, etc. You’ll notice your hair feeling much softer when you go to rinse out the product!
