Those who follow my blog and Instagram for a while now would notice how I used to have very dark brown hair. Six months ago, my journey of being a blonde begun, I honestly never thought I can pull off the blonde look, I start to love how it looks on my skin tone. I have very fine and dry hair, so by having blonde hair it takes a lot care and maintenance. Before my hair session with Redken, I have not received any treatment or touch up for over a month and half, my blonde hair was not in the best shape. Thank you Redken for helping me with my hair journey, this is only the first step, a step closer to my dream hair.
This Tuesday, I spent six hours at Salon Tocci in Liberty Village with my lovely Redken Artist Marie-Eve Faucher. I transformed from a very yellow toned blonde to ashier and lighter blonde. My goal for the next four months is to achieve a very light ashy blonde hair. Of course in the six hours I spent in the salon, Marie-Eve worked her magic on me! My hair was very brittle and dry, so we did not want to take the risks of going super blonde for the first session. We decided to take care and treat my hair before we go any lighter. The purpose of bonding is to prevent your hair from breaking and reduces split ends. You probably don’t notice in half of my photos, most of the hair ends are died and dry, so we have decided to be nice to my hair and cut off about two to three inches of my hair off! At first, I was nervous about the cut, but I end up for loving the length on me. It is a very chic and fashionable length for this season. I requested Marie-Eve to curl my hair, I really enjoy the messy curl look to style with my outfits.
I have already gotten a ton of compliments on my hair and this is only my first step in my hair journey with Redken, I can’t wait to see the results after four months! I also received a cute care pack from the amazing team at Redken with all the essentials I need to care for my hair, as well as to prepare me for the next hair session. Products such the diamond oil to keep my hair shiny and silky, Length sealer to prevent my hair from split ends. I know that I will be using the Redken Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo and Silver Charge purple shampoo a lot for sure! The Silver Charge does a wonderful job at keeping brassy hair away from me. Having blonde hair definitely means less shampooing and washing, this is to help your hair from going brassy! Ladies, I know having blonde hair is a lot of work, I am still struggling with maintaining it everyday. But be sure to use a ton of dry shampoo for your oily roots.
The pink kit from Redken, it focuses on blow-dry and styling, it is important to apply a heat protecter before using a hair dryer, this is to prevent your hair from drying out and lead to less damage. I also received an at home treatment of pH bonder and Protein Reconstructing treatment. I will keep you updated on my hair and until more magic with Redken!
