New Hair, New Routine
So not only have I gone for the chop I also said goodbye to my ombre locks. After a few years of dip dyed ends I just wasn't feeling it any more and fancied a change. I picked up a box of the Nice 'n Easy shade Medium Ash Blonde which is quite true to the colour on the packaging. To care for my newly coloured hair I have been using (and loving) the Trevor Sorbie Shampoo & Conditioner* for coloured hair. This stuff is really great at adding shine and keeping colour vibrant. I'm hoping this will help to prolong the colour in-between dye jobs. After washing my hair I'll brush it through with my Wet Brush which is ideal as it doesn't damage hair and is delicate enough for coloured locks.
I LOVE how easy my new cut is to maintain however, I have noticed it can look quite flat if I don't use any styling products on it. To achieve that messy texture of day 2 hair I have been reaching for the dry shampoo for some added volume. I'm sensing Batiste will be coming to the forefront of my new haircare routine. I'll spritze a little onto my roots before massaging in. Because of the recent cut my ends don't feel dry at all but I still like to apply some hair oil whilst it's still damp. The added bonus of shorter hair is that you use less product - hoorah!
