I have gotten several requests to do a hair post – so here it is! Ever since I dyed my hair red for a part in a school play when I was 15, my long red locks have pretty much become my trademark (psst.. my hair is naturally blonde!). While the shade of red has varied over the years, my entire modeling and pageant career was done while I was a redhead. I am constantly asked what is the upkeep like for a natural blonde to stay red for 9 years and how I take care of my hair.
Cleanse: I have been using Davines for about a year now (a friend of mine owns a salon and she has been having me try Davines products). Currently I use Davines Natural Tech Replumping Shampoo, although I tend to alternate between that and Davines Natural Tech Nourishing Shampoo. For conditioner, I usually use John Masters Ogranics Citrus and Neroli Detangler but when I want to do a more intense conditioning I use Davines Natural Tech Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle Conditioner or Kerastase Chroma Reflect Enhancing Masque.
Volume: I have been using Davines Volu Moisturizing Mist for over two years now. I first discovered it when a hairstylist used it on my hair for a major photo shoot that required big curly hair. I use it on towel dried hair at the roots before blow drying with a round brush.
Treatment: I like to refer to my Davines Natural Tech Replumping Filler as my “hair perfume”. Not only does it plump my fine, thin hair but it also smells AMAZING. T likes to grab my hair and sniff it every time I spritz a little bit on my scalp.
Here’s a little fun fact about how I take care of my hair: Since I am in the process of growing out my hair to be long again and to grow fuller and thicker hair, I have reduced my shampoo and conditioning to once or twice a week – that’s it! It sounds dirty and gross, but your hair actually benefits from it because every time you shampoo your hair you are stripping away from it. When my hair starts to feel dirty, I just twist it up into a polished bun!
